Last year I was delighted and priviledged to accept a place on the DDD South West organising team. I’ve attended and helped out at previous DDD (Developer Developer Developer) events and found them to be technically rewarding, great for networking and lots of fun.
DDD South West is a free day of technical sessions, drawing in speakers from all over the UK and covering topics of Windows, web, mobile and database development. It takes place on a Saturday so there’s no lost time off work.
This year’s event is on Saturday 26th May 2012 at the University of the West of England, or UWE as it’s locally known. This is also home to Bristol’s developer user group DotNetDevNet, run by DDD South West organisers Chris Myhill and Guy Smith-Ferrier.
Having attended DotNetDevNet meetings for a number of years, I can honestly say the time spent here is worth every second. The high standard of speakers, sessions and swag is very much reflected in DDD South West and a lot of care goes into organising and arranging this day.
We had a high number of sessions submitted for this year’s event, so thank you to all the speakers who sent in their proposed talks and thank you to everyone who voted on which sessions they want to see.
Voting closed this week, so we’re currently in the process of putting together the agenda. Registration opens on Tuesday 10th April, so keep an eye on the DDD South West web site and the @dddsouthwest Twitter account for the link. Places fill up extremely quickly!
I couldn’t finish without mentioning the sponsors, who make the event possible. Huge thanks go to Microsoft, UWE, eGroup, Telerik, TechSmith, Landmark Information Group, ComponentOne, TypeMock, Code Magazine and LogicNP Software.
