For the fifth time around, is working its hardest to make Baltimore Innovation Week the best it can be. Let’s take Wednesday’s Dev Conference venues, for example.
In the morning you’ll enjoy introductory coding workshops with hot breakfast at Impact Hub (10 E. North Ave.). Then in true innovative fashion, the afternoon full of high-level dev talks is a stroll down North at The Motor House (120 W. North Ave.). End the day with an all-inclusive happy hour in the awesome Graffiti Alley (weather permitting).
Grab some flex time and join us on Sept. 28.
With stages as fresh as the ones provided, you can only imagine how important it was to fill the programming with the best devs we could find. We even scored Gabe Pendelton of Baltimore Game Lab to emcee the day. With that said, we’re happy to announce the lineup of topics and speakers for the #BIW16 Dev Conference.
