DDD Scotland returns

DDD ScotlandDDD Scotland, the free community conference, is returning on 14th May 2016 in Edinburgh.

Developer! Developer! Developer! events are founded on a number of principles which makes it unique and well worth a single day of your time.

DDD events are free. It doesn’t cost you anything to attend.

It’s on a Saturday. That means for the majority of software developers there is no need to get time off work. For contracters/freelancers it is unlikely to impact billable hours.

Speakers from the community. We invite people that have something to say, a story to tell, or an experience to learn from. The majority of these people are real day-to-day software developers, DBAs, and so on that actually work and face the reality of their craft each day.

DDD events are democratic. All the sessions are voted in by the community, so we only put on what people have asked to see.

No Marketing. The core philosophy for the sessions are that they contain useful information. Stuff that you can either take back and start using the next day or (if not yet available) to start planning how to move to that technology.

To paraphrase the Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, DDD Scotland is OF the developer community, BY the developer community and FOR the developer community.

Call for speakers now open!

If you are interested in speaking at DDD Scotland, then head on over to the site, sign in and create a speaker profile and submit the talk(s) you’re interested in presenting. The call for speakers remains open until the end of February. After that the submitted talks go to the vote and the community decides what it wants to see.

Announcing DunDDD 2013

DDD ScotlandScottish Developers are pleased to announce that DunDDD 2013 will take place on Saturday 23rd November in the Queen Mother Building of the University of Dundee.

http://dun.dddscotland.com

This will be the 3rd DunDDD built on the popular foundation of the Developer! Developer! Developer! conference series which has spread to all corners of the UK and the international arena.  DDD conferences are community-run days where passionate and enthusiastic people come together to learn, share ideas, and to network within the many hubs of the development community. Best of all DDD events are free to everyone.

This year DunDDD will be featuring an entire track dedicated to Data Science.

Call for speakers

We are looking for sessions relating to all aspects of development from the code and technology level through to methodology and theory. DDD conferences are about sharing experience regardless of skill level so even if you have never spoken publicly before, are still studying at college or university and if you feel you have something to say, we would love to hear from you.

Sessions should be no more than an hour in length. Although we do recommend that you plan for at least 10 minutes of questions or discussion.

You can submit your sessions through our website at http://dun.dddscotland.com. Please feel free to submit more than one as we would love to see a wide variety of topics.

For more information as well as further updates, keep an eye on our blog or follow us on twitter – https://twitter.com/scottishdevs

DDD returns to Scotland with DunDDD (in Dundee) on the 17th November. We’ve got 4 tracks totalling 20 sessions held at the University of Dundee.

DunDDD – Bringing a DDD Conference to Dundee!

DDD ScotlandThe Developer! Developer! Developer! series of conferences has gone from strength to strength. This year saw DDD North added to the lineup to join Belfast, South West and of course Scotland as regional events taking place through out the year after DDD 9 in January.

Scottish Developers have teamed up with the people who brought you the NoSQL Autumn Conference last year and are proud to be bringing another DDD north of the border, to Dundee!

DunDDD is a 3-track, 15-session FREE conference that will take place on Saturday 19th November 2011 at the Queen Mother Building in the University of Dundee. There is an entire track dedicated to NoSQL and Big Data, a track deddicated to The Web and Web Technologies and a general track that isn’t based (too heavily) on any single platform, language or framework.

This is a fantastic opportunity to network with local developers from all across Scotland, learn some new tricks or even revisit some old ones. Spaces are limited so get registered before you miss out!
