For the past two years I’ve worked with Amegala to bring Indiana the developer conference it deserves. During that time Amegala has gone through some organizational changes and our visions for what the Indy.Code() conference should be have diverged significantly enough that I’ve elected to cut my ties with Amegala. I am no longer affiliated with Amegala or any of the .Code() family of conferences. I’m incredibly proud of what we accomplished with Indy.Code() but the time was right for a clean break.
Despite severing my ties with Amegala I still strongly believe that Indiana needs a world-class, locally-run, technology agnostic, community-driven developer conference and I’m still committed to making that happen. So much so that I’ve already assembled a new team of strong, local development community leaders to do just that!
I’m really excited to announce that on the evening of June 15, Tiffany Trusty, Kevin Miller, and I had our first official meeting! We’re still in the very early planning stages so we don’t have much to report yet but stay tuned – we’ll release more information as our plans materialize!
I don’t know what Amegala’s future plans are but if you’re looking for a truly Indiana-based conference run by people who know the Indiana development community, this new event is the one for you.
Hey Dave, good luck on this new phase. I’m sure whatever you do with whomever you choose to, it will be awesome.
Thanks, Jose! It’s an exciting time!
Ahh, the planning stages for IndyTechFest come to mind. We produced three of those, with 800+ registrants and 600+ attendees at the third event. Great times. We always focused on delivering a wide range of sessions at no charge to the attendees, with the sponsors providing the funding. Happy to share insights that worked back then. Good luck!
I know I went to one of them. I think I went to two. They helped set me on this path.
Best wishes on your new endeavors. I’ll be glad to spread the word when you’ve got the first dates set. (And be sure to hit me up if you’re looking for out-of-town speakers.)
Thanks, Jeremy! We’ll definitely be in touch!
