DETROIT — The DetroitDevDays software development festival has spun out MobiDevDay, a day dedicated to educating the local developer community about relevant mobile technologies and issues.
The event will feature limited seating, formal presentations throughout the day, and hands on hacking and open spaces. Android, iOS and the Mobile Web will all be represented.
Tickets will go on sale March 1. Go to http://detroitdevdays.com to learn more.
DetroitDevDays is also seeking speakers for the May 19 event.
MobiDevDay attendees are software developers, programmers and software architects. Some attendees will be exploring mobile technologies for the first time, while other attendees are just coders who want to absorb all they can, and still others are already iOS or Android developers. Many come from years of java programming while others are still students at Wayne State or U-M.
MobiDevDay seeks presentations that are specific to key mobile technologies but also presentations that will cross boundaries. A presenter should plan for 40 to 45 minutes worth of slide material and 15 minutes of questions.
Presenters willing to take time after, and possibly before, their talks answering questions and mentoring in the MobiDevDay open hacking area will be considered first. For example, one presentation already proposed is Objective C for Java Developers.
The event will be held in the auditorium of the Madison Building in downtown Detroit. The loft area just outside of the auditorium will be used for hacking and open spaces.
Parking in the nearby Detroit Opera House Parking Structure is free with validation.
