RevolutionConf 2019

Wyndham Virginia Beach Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States

RevolutionConf is back for our FOURTH YEAR!

Again this year, we are being hosted by the Wyndham Virginia Beach located in the beautiful, historic North End of Virginia Beach, VA.  You're literally a couple feet away from the ocean on our own private beach.

RevolutionConf was founded on the idea of uniting software developers of all backgrounds.  You are not defined by your programming language, your operating system, or your development environment.  You are awesome because you sling code.

The 2019 year of RevolutionConf is no different.  We're expecting between 350 to 400 attendees across a variety backgrounds and skill sets.

If selected, you're invited to our VIP dinner Wed night before the conference as well as our LUAU on Thursday night!

Session Length: 45 minutes

Audience: Software technologists with a wide variety of backgrounds and skill sets.

This year we'd like to do a better job organizing talks into tracks.  Here is some general guidance:

Web (HTML / JavaScript / CSS): If you talk about anything that has to do with building web applications, this is the track for you!

Cloud: Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, etc etc etc.  Talks in these tracks should focus on one or multiple cloud providers.

Design (UI/UX): Does your talk discuss how an application should look or feel?  Put it here!

Mobile / Devices / IOT: Phones.  Tablets.  Thingies connected to the internet.

Soft Skills: Being a better team member.  Public speaking.  Writing.  Any talk that is about improving the human aspect of software development.

Project Management / Scrum / Agile: Talks based around building better project plans and managing humans doing the work.

Business of Software: Freelancing.  Becoming an independent consultant. Starting your own product business.  Marketing.  

Other: Do you have a topic that doesn't really fit into one of the other tracks?  Put it here and we'll review it!

Workshop:  Historically, we've done 4 half-day workshops (3 hrs).  This year, our workshop theme is "learning a new programming language".
