Where the developers_are_

  1. Where The Developers Are
  2. Github: The Rise of Social Coding Q: Is the future of open source going to be based on communities such as Apache and Eclipse or will it be based on companies that sell open source? A: Neither. It’s Github. Stephen O'Grady, Tecosystems www.github.com
  3. Stack Overflow Stack Overflow is a collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers – regardless of platform or language www.stackoverflow.com
  4. Javascript As An Enterprise Play Javascript and HTML5 - emerging programming model and technology stack. A bridge between the web and the enterprise. Job ads asking for "Javascript and Java skills" Server side Java. See node.JS. Why You Should Pay Attention to Node.Js. Joyent as a platform. JQuery. Sustained momentum.

  5. Hacker News Hacker News is still popular, but the utterly minimal ad-free model make it hard to embrace/penetrate/game http://news.ycombinator.com/
  6. NoSQL and Big Data Java without the "Java". Apache hosts Hadoop, Cassandra, SOLR, Pig etc NoSQL Conference
  7. Android and IOS Android offers developer volume IOS offers developer quality
  8. Traffic and Event Management Trends Trust and traffic moving from companies to individual developers- the star culture is being accelerated by the social web. Just as Generation Y adopted myspace and abandoned it just as quickly, developer shoals can coalesce and move on faster than ever. Developer marketing by definition is tracking a moving set of targets. Hardcore technology become marketing fluff faster than ever. Developers only like the former. Power laws though are very much in play for individuals- see Joel Spolsky, Jeff Atwood, Jason Cohen
  9. Google IO "Google IO is the new JavaOne" James Governor, Monkchips discuss: make it about the web, android is the new j2me avoid: traditional Java talk, avoid getting too excited about iPhones
  10. Events in no particular order Devoxx still Java centric. Adobe and Spring have both done well at this show in recent years QCON London and SF: discuss: agility (thoughtworks has done a masterful job of "owning" the event, web architecture. avoid: two-phase commit, waterfall, "enterprisey" Oredev discuss: pragmatic approaches ie language and framework interop. agile development. Development and Testing - EC2, perhaps Coremetrics integration. includes a NoSQL day this Autumn
  11. More Events Business of Software 2010 - Joel Spolsky's conference discuss: VC trends, building a business, a hacker-managers view of building a software company. its ok to wear a suit avoid: comparisons of container-managed persistence models in JEE runtimes. Everything OReilly (except Web 2.0 Expo) OReilly remains a phenomenon. There isn't a software developer in the industry that doesn't have a stack of his books - peerless reputation. Why not do a major deal to sponsor multiple OReilly events? It could be worth a lot of developer kudos discuss: Web Squared or Internet of Things.Government 2.0 is currently his hottest topic. Where 2.0
  12. Yet More Events Code Camps small local events gaining a name for quality - by developers for developers... discuss: deep technology, code introspection avoid: marketing fluff or alternatively just see the coolest new web service out there- @lanyrd, which tracks tech conferences. built by the awesome @simonw
  13. Colour Commentary on Twitter @jdub @simonw's reviews and links of awesome web infrastructure and projects @mattb these days I mostly talk to developers at Hackdays, not conferences. i'd rather sit down and hack together than see a talk. @readystate The Android team at Google & Flex team at Adobe officially sponsor their respective tags over at StackOverflow. Pretty smart @mattb so MusicHackday is my current favourite. will travel far to attend one. perfect combination of smarts and domain-passion.
  14. Advisory Get in early, get out early - ride tech waves, don't worry about them Developer Marketing is Situational. Learn from the movie business Identify and target personal rather than corporate brands. Trust is stronger for talented individuals than corporations Its all about code. Throw out the slide decks. The command line is the new PowerPoint
