Northern Ireland Developer Conference 2018

09.Jun.2018 - 09.Jun.2018
Riddell Hall, Queens University Belfast

I attended 12 people said they attended. Show »

The software development scene in Northern Ireland has exploded over the past few years. Meetups have sprung up left, right and centre covering all sorts of weird and wonderful technologies, as well as all the old favourites. What we've discovered is that while attending meetups in areas you're already somewhat familiar with is great, you really learn and grow as a developer by looking outside your silo and seeing what goes on elsewhere.

With that in mind, we put together a conference where all developers could come together and learn from each other, while at the same time celebrating the range of amazing work going on in Northern Ireland.

The core of the conference will be technical talks, with speakers from around Northern Ireland speaking on a range of technologies and disciplines, from security and devops to data and game dev.

Hi *,

first and foremost: Awesome event, thank you so much for making this happen. Can't imagine the amount of work that went to preparation. Kudos.

Technical notes:
- Marking of the rooms was somewhat confusing. Labels on the doors, on the map and in the programme were not in sync. So took me a while to figure out what is where. No biggie as it was easy to just ask somebody. Maybe instead of "lecture room 3", having "blue room" would allow very fast orientation in the map (apart from description, the room is blue :)). And also the signs at individual rooms can be color coded so that makes them easily recognisable even from distance.
- Did not know that I had to ask waiter for vegan options. Once they showed me, it was crystal clear what to do. Was just waiting till they put sign on the table saying "vegan" during lunch. Did not happen. So I asked.
- If I'm not mistaken the app does not show Twitter handle of individual speakers. Would make it much easier to send photos on social media.
- Noticed the problem with full rooms. Maybe if we (visitors) can make an agenda in the app, then you (organisers) would have an option to see which talks are more popular and move them to bigger/smaller rooms?

Absolutely fantastic event. Well organised, and some brilliant touches (childcare etc), not to mention the high quality of talks.

I felt there may have been maybe too much going on - some of the rooms felt empty at times, which did the speakers a disservice. Plus a few more signposts would've not gone amiss.

Next time, a few less options, a few more central talks, and it would be perfect

Incredibly disappointing that there doesn’t appear to be a non public way of giving feedback on the event.
