"DevCamp – Technology meets Passion" at the FZI

"DevCamp – die Informatiktage" is a combination of a conference and an unconference for IT talents. On day one of the conference, specialist lectures and workshops will be held by leading experts curated by the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik, GI). On day two, the visitors will be an active part of the event – instead of an audience there will be participants. Each lecture (45-minute "sessions") will be chosen and held by the participants. Knowledge exchange and networking are the most important parts of the conference.

As opposed to a BarCamp, DevCamp is a more intimate event – especially for developers. Instead of permitting open topics, the topics are limited to everything that has directly and indirectly to do with mobile, web and software engineering.

The event on 12 and 13 May 2017 takes place in the FZI House of Living Labs in Karlsruhe and this year’s programme will be once again exciting and interesting.
