Us Fizzers have once again had the opportunity to do what we love best by organizing DevConf 2017 for the 2nd year running! In just 2 years the event has become a “must attend” event in the local developer world. The event was held at VodaWorld in Midrand and was sold out - attracting over 700 software developers from some of the top companies in the country. This annual, one-day event is community-driven and vendor-neutral. The line-up of speakers was huge with over 40 speakers including some international speakers, speaking about a range of topics relevant to the world of developers. Some topics included software product design, Android development, and even flying a drone with VR.
The event also attracted 20 sponsors who realised the value in talking to so many developers under one roof. With 16 sponsors stands, the networking area was pumping during the breaks.
The event was a massive success with awesome feedback from attendees on Twitter, using the hashtag #devconf. Looking forward to seeing this event continue to grow!
We also managed a special dinner for the event’s speakers, which was held the night before the big day. We were on-site for the dinner and it was great to see how excited the speakers were for the conference.
