On the 3rd and 4th of November, over 5000 programmers, technology enthusiasts, IT professionals, managers and important names from the Romanian IT environment will take part at one of the most awaited IT&C events in Romania. DevCon Live 2021 is preparing the second virtual edition with a technical agenda that includes 9 stages, over 50 speakers from 3 continents and 11 masterclass sessions that will take place during 2 days, having MassMutual Romania, as Main Sponsor.
“DevTalks conferences organized by Catalyst Solutions are known as benchmark events in the IT&C community and in the studies of Most Desired Employers are among the most desired conferences dedicated to IT professionals. We have been known in the market for over 8 years with the DevTalks series and we are pioneers in online events with high exposure – over 8000 professional participants, so every time the agenda manages to address subjects of intrigue in the community, and we surprise both with the diversity of topics we choose, as well as with the elements of interactivity that we propose to the participants. This year we bring into the participants’ attention topics about technologies or robots, highlighting their passions; we talk about ballet, how to use as few code lines as possible, but also about how we can learn correctness in artificial intelligence.”, Andreea Balaci, Projects Delivery Coordinator, Catalyst Solutions
At each edition, DevCon brings together important names from the IT&C community, to discuss major topics related to the ongoing year, but also predictions, challenges and impactful projects, sharing with the audience their own experiences through live coding sessions, case studies or tips & tricks at the end of which, the participants can ask questions live to the speakers.
The agenda of the event will bring together over 50 local and international speakers, leaders and professionals. Among them , we mention:
Dr. Merritt Moore
A quantum physicist and professional ballerina dancer, she will talk about what it means to dance with robots, and she will answer the following questions: What are the implications for human creativity? Is it something to fear or can we enjoy? She will present at Data, AI & Machine Learning Con on November the 4th at DevCon.
Bruno Capuano, Microsoft MVP
He is Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for the last 13 years and he will show us how we can control a drone using 20 lines of code.
One of the Microsoft award winners (Most Valuable Professional) will teach us how to think “outside the box”, combining several technologies, to create in the end a program that can wash the toilet for the cat while we are away from home.
More than this, the DevCon Live experience will be dedicated to the networking component, through which participants can connect with the entire community that will be present at the event.
