Who doesn't love development (or solving business problems)? Who doesn't love SciFi/Fantasy/Comics? Who thinks combinations of these things are going to be even better? If you answer ME - then this is the virtual-con for you!
Honestly, we're reeling from the loss of many of our favorite in-person conferences due to COVID-19. We all know the best conferences are the ones that have the best after-session mingling and networking. However, we still need to hear about what's going on in the developer community.
This conference is a gap-fill to satisfy our need to hear from others in the community and also another chance to give those who love speaking about what they know and have learned a place to keep doing it (and doing it well), even in these unprecedented times.
In addition to solving our itch for a good tech conference, this conference is a chance to hear about things other developers are doing and learn new or better ways to improve your daily workflow.
The best parts about this conference will be that not only will we be talking tech, but we'll be encouraging all presenters to enhance talks with sci-fi/fantasy/comics/gaming, and anything else in what was traditionally called geek/nerd culture.
We're also planning to put networking tools in place where people can talk and network around tech and comic-con-like topics.
TL/DR. Stay home and avoid the con-crud. Learn cool stuff from industry and thought leaders. Embrace sci-fi/fantasy/culture in the process. Have a great 3-day conference to gap-fill and scratch our conference itch until we can get our favorite in-person events back.
