#DevOTT: Hello WorldJanuary/16/2017
The role of a developer has evolved considerably over the course of the past decade. What was once seen as a support role in an organization has become arguably one of the most vital, with developers now shaping product and user experience in organizations across every industry. You can have the brightest business minds, strategists, marketers, and designers around the table, but without our developers to bring these ideas to life we’re dead in the water.
What hasn’t evolved at quite so quickly a pace is a community within our city to foster this talent. #DevOtt was conceived to bring Ottawa’s creative thinkers and coders out from the confines of their cubicles to encourage networking, knowledge sharing, and continued learning from the technology sector’s leading experts.
When we launched the event, our expectations were modest. We knew this was a new concept and getting the word out might take time, but the overwhelming response was nothing we ever could have anticipated. Not only were we sold out with 160 registrants, overnight, but we had over 100 more on the wait list. Minds = blown.
The wheels are already in motion for our next event. New venue, different speakers, same great event. Make sure you don’t miss out by joining our Slack community at www.devott.ca or signing up for our newsletter. This is a movement you want to be a part of.
