Norfolk Developers March 2016 Update

The first bit of good news is that the JavaScript workshop was a huge success and you can read more about it and some of the future plans for Norfolk Developers here:

Another piece of good news is that the NorfolK Developers breakfast with John Beer of the Centre for Advanced Knowledge Engineering on Wednesday is sold out. We’re currently lining up the June breakfast to feature Nigel Lubbock of Steeles Law who will be talking about software licensing. We’ll announce the meetup once it’s confirmed and you can RSVP.


On April 13th we have Ian Massingham of AWS coming to give his presentation on ‘Building Serverless Applications with AWS’, which he was unable to give at the conference. He will be speaking alongside Tom Morgan of Modality Systems who will be talking about his first Hackathon experience. You can RSVP here:


We’re currently planning a special Norfolk Developers event in West Norfolk which we hope will be on Wednesday 11th of May. More details as we get them.

On Thursday May 12th Christos Matskas, another popular NorDevCon speaker, is doing a double header on ‘Cross platform mobile development with the power of Xamarin’ & ‘Introduction to Microsoft's Azure cloud platform’. You can RSVP here:


We’re still planning our main June event, but the rest of June will be full of workshops as well as the Norfolk Developers breakfast mentioned above.
