I’m going to Devoxx US, and you should go as well!
For the very first time, a Devoxx conference is happening in the USA, in San Jose, CA. It starts on March 21, 2017 and is 3 days long. Devoxx conferences are famous in Europe (organized in Belgium, France, UK, Poland and Morocco) for their high quality talks from amazing speakers. They are also very high rated because it is organized by developers for developers. Talks are all highly technical and the required experience from the targeted audience ranges from beginners to experts. So, with more than 200 sessions (chosen from 750 submissions!), everyone is able to craft its very own personal conference schedule. Do not trust me, check the program by yourself!
And don’t be afraid if you miss a talk because you’ve met this incredible programer your were looking for to talk about this pull request of yours. All sessions are recorded and they are published on the Devoxx YouTube channel shortly after the event. Devoxx conferences are also about networking and hacking, so everything is done to let you embrace the experience!
Here is my personal selection of talks. I know I won’t be able to attend to all of them, but it shows the wide variety of topics you can learn about by coming to Devoxx US.
