Join us during Philly Tech Week 2017 presented by Comcast for an afternoon of high-level dev talks. It’s a chance to learn how to be a better technologist, and really, who doesn’t need that?
We have over 15 speakers joining us this year, sharing real-world tips on various programming languages and frameworks. One twist: It’s a choose-your-own-adventure format. What does this mean, you ask? Simple.
We will have three rooms with different foci in each room, and you will have the opportunity to hop from one room to the next between the talks (you don’t literally have to hop, you can just walk, fyi). Kinda a bit like a Barcamp-style event, but not, since all of the topics are already chosen.
Here’s what each room will focus on:
- Tactical (this includes talks on live-coding and company case studies)
- Process (talks on project management and cleaning code)
- Big Ideas (a mix of the newest and most innovative concepts happening in the dev community)
It’s a top-notch professional development (and networking!) opportunity for one heckuva price.
Here’s our current list of what you’ll learn and who you’ll learn it from:
- RevZilla supercharges analytics in AWS using Snowflake, the data warehouse built for the cloud with Matt Kull, CEO at RevZilla
