Never heard about the keyboard warriors ? The Warm Crocodile Developer Conference has branched out and does a new free for all community format, where you, the attendee, are just as much in the center as everyone else. Do you think you can take the heat ?
Why? First of all, we basically think the tech world is telling us as developers a bit too much about WHAT, instead of the WHY. And that's something we would like to put some focus on, because the WHY is, we think, just as important.
A couple of rules to be followed if you think this is worth your while
Sharing is the key. Share your thoughts, beliefs and opinions on a topic. Scale yourself!
Presentations has to be based on pratice and real real-world stuff. Not theory or something you read in a book.
Presentations can have 4 slides which should always be named "you (who you are), why to use, when to use, how to use".
1-15 minute presentation.
0-15 minute discussion on the presentation.
15 minute of well served beer.
Recurse until end...
Perks and Prizes
One of the pillars of a good discussion is of course cold and well served beer. As a matter of fact, lots of beer and well servedness, to loosen up. So that's what we will combine these lovely Keyboard Warrior meetings with.
There will be a hands-up vote for the best piece of technology/whatever presented (not the best presentation per se), based on what you think. The best presentation will win a prize ranging from a free conference ticket to a couple of bottles of red wine.
See you there
