Developers from all over Germany gathered at the Developer Conference Hamburg for a second time, an event that owes some of its popularity to its local character, i.e. the fact that it is not an international event. Instead, it offers a cozy atmosphere where inspiring developers are granted the opportunity to showcase both the breadth and depth of their knowledge and share it with everyone else.
Following an introductory keynote which, basically, concluded that there isn’t such a thing as the perfect programming language, the schedule was filled with exciting talks about the art of developing cool products.
On a side note
One of the most important things about this kind of these events are the conversations with other developers. A lunch or coffee break offers the perfect chance to chat, get to know other professionals a little better and add them on XING. Like the year before, the event was held at the headquarters of Otto – Germany’s famous catalog company– and all the tickets were gone two weeks before the date. The organizing team from NetImpact did an awesome job at assisting and sharing information with everybody, both before and during the two days of the conference. Power, sound, light … you named it, they had it!
