Innovation and creativity: these are the keywords of Codemotion Rome, the international conference dedicated to technology and open to all coding languages. The event will be held in Rome at the Department of Engineering in Roma Tre from 9 to 12 April.
Codemotion will consist of 16 thematic tracks dedicated to developers and enterprise: among other topics, during the conference will be addressed talks about Mobile, Web, BigData, Cloud, User Experience.
In regard of coding languages, both functional and object-oriented, Codemotion attendees would have the opportunity to discuss about new languages, such as Dart or Hack, libraries like Backbone.js or frameworks such as Angular.JS, the new framework that have already captured the code scene.
Codemotion is scheduled in two days of workshops and two conferences, there will about 100 talks, 75% of which will be delivered in English. “After the experience of Berlin and Madrid and in anticipation of the event in Tel Aviv – says Chiara Russo, CEO and co-founder at Codemotion – we realized that the Italian public was eager of a proposal with a much broader scope. We wanted at least 50% of our speakers have an international backgrounds: the presence of strategic partners such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, Intel, IBM, Paypal, Telecom, has allowed the realization of an event beyond all expectations.”
In a ever changing world such as as that of software development, a constant professional update and the possibility of being able to cope with the latest technology trends is pivotal both for a company and a single professional that want to remain at the state of the art. Only 3.1% of the Italian GDP is represented by the digital economy according to data Assintel, which also reveal that even an increase of 160% incurred on the mobile market in 2013. In Europe, vacancies in the ICT sector are over 400 thousand, and are expected to double by 2015. These numbers alone are enough to explain how important it is to attend a conference like Codemotion.
Codemotion is well acquainted with the world of developers, even the very young, since we are working within the Startups incubator hosted by LUISS ENLABS, and we reserve a dedicated space to high-tech startups. “It’s not so simple for a startup to be able to come into direct contact with lenders or developers. Our initiative, StartupInAction – a contest oriented toward startups with high technological level – allows these guys to present their project and their technologies to an audience skilled and attentive, “says Mara Marzocchi, co-founder at Codemotion.
Particular attention will be given during the event to young developers-to-come. After the success of the courses for children, Codemotion Kids will be present in Rome to welcome aspiring developer who move their first steps into the world of coding.
The area dedicated to Makers and Internet of Things, in collaboration with Maker Faire Rome finally, will be a landmark for all those who want to see live educational toys and 3D printers.
There will also be opportunities for artistic influences and of course networking, starting from the Opening party, which will take place in the prestigious location of the Temple of Hadrian in Rome: an excellent opportunity to meet all the speakers and international guests who will join Codemotion Rome.
