Taking place on the first day of spring in a building with personality, as the organisers put it – the Ars Electronica Center, this event is all about creating an environment where people specialised in various programming languages can interact and share their ideas.
Floor Drees, co-organiser of Kod.io, told inventures.eu that “[the conference’s] mission is to create a link between programming languages and countries”. It seems there is a lack of transparency as plenty of times “while visiting developer meetups in Bratislava or Hungary, developers would ask me if I know any companies in Austria, looking for new engineers. And vice versa, I meet a lot of CTO’s who complain they can’t find professional coders,” she added.
During the conference, AustrianStartups, a national community that brings local entrepreneurs together, will host a gathering for startups scouting for a new talent and for developers looking for the next big thing. During this get-together, at least ten startups will get the chance to showcase their engineering culture and expand their team.
So whether you’re a beginner or a fluent speaker of Ruby or any other programming language, do make sure you start your spring at Kod.io 2014!
