It’s hot, it’s relevant, and it’s the second largest Java conference in the nation. It’s DevNexus, the conference by developers for developers.
Hosted this year in the bustling hub of Atlanta from March 6-8, this is where developers come to see what others are developing, learn about the latest technologies and find out what’s coming down the pike. This sold out event has it all: It’s interactive, it’s fun and developers love it. Listen to experts speak on what matters to you and your current projects. Join other developers to hang out, network and learn from each other. Here are 7 talks to keep your eye on during this can’t-miss event.
