Keeping Up in the Wild Web

May 24, 2016

Web development is a rapidly shifting landscape with a multitude of responsibilities that fall somewhere in there. Is it possible for us to define a developer once and for all? And is web performance purely a developer's responsibility?

Join Jeff Kamo (Mobify) and Cole Brown (Iamota) at CodeCore on May 24th as they share their experiences. The evening is looking to be as philosophical as it is practical.

Doors open at 6:30pm, talks start at 7:00pm. No admittance after 7:10pm.

An assortment of beer and soft drinks will be provided, no food. 19+, minors not permitted due to alcohol service.

    The Developer Identity

    Jeff Kamo

    The tech industry is a diverse and lustrous landscape, ripe with opportunity and no shortage of job titles. Let’s take some time to explore one of them: what is a Developer? Ask ten individuals, and find yourself with ten individual answers. As the ancient Greek maxim goes: "know thyself", so let’s explore who we are in this industry, where we fit, why we belong, and how we can continue to grow.

Afterwards

We will head out afterwards to continue the conversation over some drink and food. Location announced at the event.
