Codemotion, one of Europe’s largest tech conferences devoted to developing an ecosystem of innovation in coding, will arrive for the first time in the UAE on 1-2 April, offering a unique platform for pioneering developers and technical talents to meet and discuss the latest trends and advances in the field.
Codemotion is now a regular feature on the tech conference calendar in eight countries, including the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Poland, Ireland, Netherlands, and the UAE, with 11 scheduled conferences now operating across the EMEA region.
The first Codemotion Dubai will be held at the Impact Hub in Downtown Dubai, with the two-day conference set to offer up a series of presentations, talks, and workshops, as well as highlighting services for start-ups and regionally based companies. Codemotion’s event partners include Dubai Internet City, Google Developer Group Dubai, Wamda, and Impact Hub.
Key topics on the conference agenda include areas dedicated to Devops (enterprise software), the Cloud, Big Data, game development, security, web development, coding methodologies, and IoT (the “Internet of Things”). For Dubai’s first Codemotion event, the line up of speakers include some of Silicon Valley’s foremost coding experts as well as those from around the region and other international markets. These include speakers from Google, Amazon, Namshi, Jet.com and propertyfinder. “As one of the most successful coding events in Europe, we’re extremely excited to be bringing Codemotion to Dubai and to tap into a burgeoning market of tech savvy developers and companies,” said Mohamad Harastani, Codemotion Regional Partner.
“We are confident that the UAE and region’s tech community can seriously be enhanced by an event of this nature and we look forward to welcoming some of the most exciting regional talent for what should be a fantastic two days of discussion and discovery,” Mohamad Harastani added.
