The Technical.ly Developers Conference has for years been a “tasting menu” of new, established, and inventive deployments of software development, strategy, and management. Come to learn, catch up with friends and meet with a new slate of fast-growing software teams. This conference will offer video content and in-person conversations around three topics:
- What’s Next: Problem solving in an experimental environment using cutting edge tools
- Growth Stage: Problem solving with technology that is being tested, deployed, or scaled
- At Scale: Problem solving with technology accessible by millions of people
Pre-recorded technical talks and short-form culture shoutouts will be included with registration and released before the conference takes place. This year’s in-person program will feature small-group “huddles” focused on the most popular pre-recorded talks and important trends in software development. Then we’ll finish the day with happy hour and networking.
