DeveloperWeek 2014 Theme: Full Stack Development
Full Stack Development is more than a job title at today’s hottest tech companies, it is also a philosophy of managing technology. Full stack development means understanding each technology in the context of every layer of the stack. How well does Node work with MongoDB? What hardware / server configuration will help us scale a Ruby on Rails app? Are our engineers designing the data model and business logic with a clear concept of the customer use cases in mind?
Full Stack Development means that more engineers must know the role of his technology and layer within the context of the total technology stack – from server and database to design and user interface. In a sense, this means no developer or company should ever feel locked into any one technology – as long as your Full Stack is built right!
DeveloperWeek 2014 Conference & Expo in San Francisco (February 15 – 21) is the first dev conference that invites thousands of developers not just to learn new skills – build to build new apps, startups, and product features within one week.
DeveloperWeek is divided between Headquarter activities, Dev University, and Week activities:
Headquarters At the center of DeveloperWeek is the main stage and expo where 2,000 developers, executives, and entrepreneurs can converge around keynote talks and one of San Francisco’s largest exhibitions of developer tools
Dev University is where newbies or developer veterans can learn the newest programming languages and best practices in development
Hacker Week Activities such as the hackathon, scholarships, product challenges, and 2+ more challenge tracks offer you ways you can build apps, startups, or product features at DeveloperWeek – win prizes from the $100,000 in cash and prizes for the apps you build during DeveloperWeek – and get notoriety!
City-Wide Week Activities include tech startup open houses, interactive hiring mixer activities, and week-long summits / meetups / parties!
Newbie Developers: (0-1 years experience) can attend the 3-day Dev University and sign up for the Intro the Design or Intro to Development tracks! Our goal is to help you build your first app during DeveloperWeek! (recommended you’ve dabbled in code before)
