DDD 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 contractors/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.
