I’m just back from Code PaLousa! If you are not familiar with Code PaLOUsa, it is a conference for developers held in Louisville, Kentucky. It was held Wednesday, June 7th through Friday, June 9th. While it certainly had a strong selection of classes for .Net developers, the conference is open to all developers. There are plenty of classes for everyone from web developers to IT managers.
Classes range from CSS Flexbox, to building an Amazon Echo app, to using Swift to program the Apple Watch. There are even design-oriented lectures as well.
I attended the pre-conference classes on Wednesday. I took a class entitled “Getting Git” by Jason McCreary, in the morning and “Apple Watch Development with Swift” by Jeff Kelley, in the afternoon. The Git training was an excellent refresher and the Apple Watch class was right in line with the Swift for iOS training I am currently learning at Code Louisville.
There were even more classes for .Net developers. There really were more classes than I can list here, but some of the others focused on Ruby, Docker, Java, Xamarin, security, health issues, project management, and more. The were lots of networking opportunities and job recruiters at the conference as well.
Code PaLOUsa is held annually and is the premier developer conference for Louisville. There really is a little something for everyone. You can find out more details about the conference on the Code PaLOUsa website. With incredible sponsors like CBS Interactive, Elastic, and UPS, to name just a few, it is a top notch conference. It is definitely worth attending. If you have never been, you should definitely make plans to attend next year’s conference.
