At Technical.ly, we’re flipping the idea of a conference on its head, making “presenter” and “audience” a thing of the past.
Instead, we’re offering the opportunity for deep reflection as well as consultation and discussion on an array of languages, environments and styles. Are you a mid- to senior-level technologist and interested? You’re in luck.
Not only is this year’s Technical.ly Developers Conference as part of the 12th annual Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast fast approaching on Tuesday, May 10, but it’s free, includes asynchronous offerings, and carries no expectation that you will hold your burning questions until the end. We like to wrap up with happy hour instead.
Our pre-recorded technical talks from leading experts will be shared with your free registration. Listen on your own time to real case studies out of fast-growth startups, experimental projects and at-scale corporate giants. Dive into what interests you and leave the rest.
Here’s what some of that pre-recorded programming will address:
- Leslie Chapman, distinguished software engineer at Comcast, on how to succeed as an individual contributor
- A team of experts from Vanguard on securing your security career
- Nick McAvoy, engineering manager at Crossbeam, about the company’s bet on Clojure (a new version of his 2021 talk)
- Additional contributions from Sarah Foss, CTO at Audacy, as well as Andrew Rudi, senior manager of UI engineering, and Bala Kalyatpanoli, senior manager and platform architect at URBN
Then, on Tuesday, May 10, join us in Philadelphia for the in-person, small group discussions. Take a look at the full programming schedule and what those facilitators have planned for their huddle sessions:
