It is that time again where developers get the chance to share with fellow developers. Devs4Devs is by developers for developers where anyone can participate and presenters can volunteer to present a session on any developer topic. Attendees get to hear from their fellow developers about something new and cool in a short, 20 minute presentation by one of their peers. Presenters get to experience what it’s like to prepare for and deliver a technical presentation for an audience.

Due to conflicts with other events we have needed to move Devs4Devs and it will run on 5th March 2011 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM at the Microsoft offices in Johannesburg. What better way to spend your Saturday morning than in the company of your fellow developers, listening to some great technical presentations and networking with your community peers?

This is a free event and we’ll be providing breakfast and tea and coffee during the break.

For Presenters

We have timeslots for up to 12 presentations and we’ll update this post as people submit new sessions. If you’re interested in presenting on a topic (any development related topic will do) we’d love to have you! Remember, this is a relaxed environment and you’re in front of your peers. This is a great way to build up your confidence if you’re new to presenting, or, for experienced presenters to practice and polish up their skills.

If you’d like to present contact us and let us know what topic you’d like to talk about, provide a description and get preparing!
