DVLPR Day

ABOUT

A fresh new addition to _SOUTHSTART this year is our inaugural DVLPR Program. This half-day experience strives to connect developers and the technology-minded to the trends, tools, and stories of scaling both technology and team. Too often an after-thought of start-up and innovation events, we've decided to plunge into this blue-sky white-space with our developer hat on to bring together some of the leading individuals scaling opportunity in Australia. Connect and learn from experienced and war-torn CTO's and developers from across the country as they share their insights and growing pains, tips and tricks, and the larger overarching lifestyle and philosophy of a coded reality. Through talks, panels, and conversations at our hosted lunch you’ll have the opportunity to connect with peers and steep yourself in JIT knowledge. You'll hear from leaders in their field talking on a range of topics, including: * security • accelerating development with low-code tech * scaling teams and technology * remote-infrastructure and collaborative teams * managing technical debt * building faster. better.

All ticket holders of our main friday events are invited to join us in the sunshine for closing drinks powered by our good friends at Twilio! We know that by the time happy hour comes around, you’ll have sparked new ideas & will likely be in need of a debrief with your newfound change comrades. So what better way to conclude the afternoon than with celebration of what's been. Don’t forget, Fringe & WOMAD are just around the corner if you want to continue the celebrations into the night & we’ll be in your inboxes shortly after to continue to support your journey in the years to come!
