Codemotion Advisory Board

Codemotion’s Advisory Board is our tech soul: they will be our Fantastic 5, thesuper gurus that will make the conference even more cool.
The main role of the F5 is to bring value to Codemotion with their professional know-how and with their experience as speakers in international conferences, but most of all because they are huge Codemotion fans.

So far, Codemotion hasn’t had an Advisory Board. The agenda was created by the founders of Codemotion Team with the valuable help of the developers communities. Together with the developers communities, the Advisory Board members will pick the most interesting contents among all the proposals we receive in order to build Codemotion’s agenda. This is a tough job because we always receive many interesting proposals. Their challenge will be to contribute to the realization of a balanced and engaging agenda with high level speakers.

Very challenging goals were set for this year and the F5 will help us to get there! Now, let’s introduce our Advisory Board.
