Over the past few years life has taken me on an interesting journey. What started off as blogging led to writing a book, authoring some Pluralsight courses, receiving a few Microsoft MVP awards, and speaking at user groups and conferences around the world. Through all these activities I’ve connected with amazing people doing incredible things and have formed lasting friendships with people I’d likely have had little chance of meeting under other circumstances.
Whether it’s speaking at a conference or leading a class at Eleven Fifty Academy, being engaged in the global software development community, sharing knowledge, and fostering professional growth has become a major part of my lifestyle. Despite how proud I am of the work I’ve done one thing I’ve come to regret over time is how little of my efforts have been focused on my local community. Sure, I’ve spoken at user groups around the Indiana but most of my efforts have been focused in far away places.
Indianapolis, and Indiana for that matter, is primed to be a major player in the technology scene but too often we stay within our silos and fragmented communities. What Indiana has lacked for a number of years is an event to bring the entire community together. Together we’re stronger and that’s why I’ve partnered with my good friends Adam Barney and Ken Versaw of Amegala to bring Indy.Code() to Indianapolis!
Indy.Code() is a three-day conference covering all aspects of software development. It’s being held March 29-31 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. We’ve lined up more than 100 hands-on workshops and breakout sessions presented by some of the nation’s best technical speakers including several based right here in Indiana. We’ve also worked hard to ensure that there’s something for everyone involved in software development so whether you’re developing a brand new Angular 2 or .NET Core app, maintaining legacy systems, designing a user experience, or managing a project, Indy.Code() has something for you. Indy.Code() even has dedicated tracks for functional programming, mobile development, and project management! And finally, don’t forget about all the opportunities to connect with your peers. Perhaps you’ll meet someone who inspired your career or someone else who just solved that problem that’s been nagging you for a week.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in this one-of-a-kind Indiana development event. Register for Indy.Code() today!
See you there!
