DDD Scotland: Thank You!

We would just like another opportunity to thank everyone who made DDD Scotland a success: speakers, volunteers, sponsors and of course all of you who attended. We had > 250 attendees on the day, which considering the very rainy Scottish weather we had, is impressive!

We have had some lovely feedback and some things to work on for next year to make it even better. You can still give feedback on the event here and on specific talks here.

In the meantime, let’s remind ourselves of the day with these blogs from the community (if you have blogged but we haven’t included it, let us know and we will add it to the list!):

DDD Scotland: Useful Information

It’s nearly time for DDD Scotland and we are really looking forward to seeing this event come to life!We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors and supporters, without all the funding and spreading the word of this event this wouldn’t be happening.

ddds-unicorn-side-284-086

Here is the plan for the day, let us know if you have any questions.  Just get in touch via scottishdevs@gmail.com

Getting there

Our hosts at UWS have this useful guide on finding the campus:

https://www.uws.ac.uk/university-life/campuses/paisley-campus/travelling-to-paisley-campus/

If travelling from Glasgow there are trains often from Glasgow Central to Paisley Gilmour Street. Looks like there are these timings on Saturday morning: 8am, 8.05am, 8.25am, taking about 1-15 minutes… you may even bump in to some developer friends on the way to DDD!

There is limited parking space availability at the university and it’s first come first served.

On arrival

When you arrive, please make your way to the registration table and let us know you are here. There will be tea, coffee and breakfast snacks (thanks to Streamba) to help us wake up and get ready for a day of learning.

Throughout the day

We will be kicking off at 9.15am with introductions and announcements so please try to be on time to get all the news.

We have talks and panels scheduled all day with enough time between to get a drink, have a quick break and make your way to next talk. Check out the schedule here.

If you don’t fancy any of the scheduled talks for a given time slot, head over to our community room and check out what’s happening.

We will have room monitors and volunteers available throughout the day, let us know if we can help at all. Or even just say hello, we are really looking forward to meeting you all!

12:30 to 13: 30

We have been able to supply lunch and afternoon coffee thanks to our platinum partners Arnold Clark and Screenmedia. If you would like to head out to the local area, that’s fine too. Please try to be back for 13:30 so we can get started again for the afternoon sessions.

15:15 to 15:30

Time for a quick coffee break between sessions thanks to Endjin!

17:30

Join us for thank yous, prizes and goodbyes!

Prizes

We have been gifted some awesome prizes from generous companies: books, licences, tickets and devices! We will distribute some of these throughout the day but make sure you stay til the end of the day for the prize giving!

Spread the word

Remember to tweet, Instagram, Facebook, blog about us, it will let us get the word out and make the event even better in years to come. Use #dddScotland and tag us.

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.

DDD ScotlandWe are pleased to announce that registration for this year’s DunDDD event on the 23rd of November at the University of Dundee is now open. You can register for your FREE place at http://dun.dddscotland.com/registration

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
