What is Devoxx?"Why you and/or your boss should care"
Devoxx is the premier developer conference in Europe. It initially started in Belgium hosting a once a year conference attended by over 3000 developers from not only across the continent but from around the world drawn by the unique atmosphere of a conference run by developers for developers. Since its inception Devoxx has grown year on year, first branching out to Devoxx France, and now to the inaugural Devoxx UK. But what does that mean: for developers by developers?

Both the steering committee (which oversees the organisation of the conference) and the programme committee (responsible for creating the schedule from the hundreds of submissions from our CFP) are entirely composed of developers from the community. This means the focus of the conference is topics both of interest and education, whether this is how to better apply Agile methodologies with evidential case-studies, how to leverage a tool or technology for shorter-time to market and improved quality, learn the latest security techniques, or ways to analyse the performance and reliability of a system.

A Devoxx conference is comprised of more than just your usual presentations, we have:
  • Keynotes - we have lined up several industry thought-leaders to provide inspiring talks on the past, present and future
  • Conference sessions - 50 minute talk which is typically a presentation including demonstrations or live coding
  • Quickes - these 15 minute sessions are run during lunchtime are very varied in topic but often focus on a single library or technique
  • Labs - A 3 hour hands-on-lab lead by experts in the field, these sessions allows attendees to get practical programming advice and guidance learning skills they can take back to the office immediately
  • BoFs - a mini-unconference within the Devoxx schedule, an opportunity for developers to gather together for an open-table discussion around a given subject
  • Hackergarten - an open-space for developers to meet each other and prominent contributors of various open source projects and code together, perhaps they'll fix a bug that's causing them problems every day, or try and add a useful feature to a common tool
For the full details of what's on please view our schedule.

Who Should Come To Devoxx?"Why you and/or your boss should go"
If you program, or work with programmers of, Java, Groovy, Scala, Ruby, Javascript of any level (from novice to genius) then Devoxx is for you. Naturally we cater to a range of developers, denoting our sessions novice, senior, or expert accordingly. Not all our sessions are based on the practicalities of writing code, with our methodology and DevOps content scrum masters, technical project managers, and operations team members could also benefit from attending Devoxx.

While we certainly like to shout about the amazing lineup that we have on offer for Devoxx UK 2013 the less tangible opportunities of Devoxx include the chance encounters, the post-talk chat with a speaker, the corridor discussion - in short the networking. Don't forget too that our sponsors will be there not only to promote their products and services but also to listen to the feedback from "the front line". Because of the "for developers by developers" ethos these sponsors tend not to send a group of buzz word firing sales people but more technically-saavy staff who are able to answer specific technical questions on their products, and form direct links between the teams that create the product and those that use it in their day-to-day work.

Can you afford to let this value for money opportunity pass you by?

Mani @ Devoxx UK
DevoxxUK is going to be my first proper software conference where I'm involved with the top brass (if I may) and their supporters, from the world of developers! The two days of DevoxxUK will be filled with excitement, throwing a lot of attention on technologies that developers are passionate about, that make them proud and that they hold close to their hearts!

Remember it is an event for developers by developers, for the community by the community. Over the years the age range of developers has extended its limits again and again - today we have kids (Devoxx 4 Kids) as young as 10 being introduced to robotics, smart devices and programming. But lets not forget the veterans of the software industry in their 50s and 60s who have left behind system-level and functional languages for us to cherish! DevoxxUK is hosting and welcoming to all inhabitants from a growing and maturing planet of developers and creators of our past, present and future!
