The Michigan Developer Summit
This year, there will be one working session and panel discussions that will focus on the theme of growing and supporting Michigan’s Software Developer Community. What can we do to educate and grow our community? Can we build an organization dedicated to providing resources for Michigan devs? What does it mean to work for a startup? What is a tech founder and is it for you? What should you do if you have an idea for a business? What technologies should you focus onand more….
A portion of the profits from 1DevDay will be donated to FORCE. http://www.facingourrisk.org/ FORCE is the only national nonprofit organization devoted to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Their mission includes support, education, advocacy, awareness and research specific to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Their programs serve anyone with a BRCA mutation or a family history of cancer
To accommodate the number of expected attendees and to provide room for growth we are holding 1DevDay at Cobo. In the past we were forced to turn attendees away due to space requirements. This year, we can add as many rooms as we like and we will not have sessions that are standing room only.
We are proud to bring 1DevDay to this historic location. Cobo Center sits on the Detroit River and is situated along Jefferson and Washington avenues. Cobo was named for Albert E. Cobo, mayor of Detroit from 1950 to 1957. Designed by Gino Rossetti, the center opened in 1960. There are about 5,000 hotel rooms in downtown Detroit with 4,000 hotel rooms within walking distance of Cobo Center.
