Code Detectives

Did you program when you were 11 years old? Do you feel the excitement and passion when solving computer-related problems? Would you spend sleepless nights trying to find bugs, security issues or make your program work? Do you see programming as a recreational and playful activity and program during your spare time? Do you consider programming as an art and are impressed by elegantly written code? Do you know any killer programming tips? Are you part of the programming community? Do you participate in programming contests?

Come listen, chat and play programming games with a series of speakers from the business, industry and open source community who answered YES to all of the above questions. Maybe the passion is contagious?! This is your opportunity to have all your burning tech-related and also career-related questions answered.

Who: All are welcome!
