Dev8D is 4 days of 100% pure software developer heaven. It will be intense. It will be exhilarating. It will make you a better programmer.
• Learn to use unfamiliar languages (such as Python, Ruby and Clojure)
• Team up with other developers and build rapid development projects for tech prizes
• Take part in lightning session discussions with industry experts
• Swap skills and ideas with other developers
Dev8D is funded by JISC as part of the Developer Community Supporting Innovation project (DevCSI for short). The aim is to bring together developers from higher education and other sectors in order to learn from one another and ultimately create better, smarter technology for learning and research.
For programmers and people who have to work closely with them and who are interested in pair programing as a technique to improve the quality of the code that is produced. This event also serves as a warm-up to the programming dojos at Dev8D.
