Hello, Tampa Bay techies, entrepreneurs, and nerds! Welcome to the weekly list of online-only events for techies, entrepreneurs, and nerds based in an around the Tampa Bay area.
Keep an eye on this post; I update it when I hear about new events, it’s always changing. Stay safe, stay connected, and #MakeItTampaBay!
Saturday: The Suncoast Developers Conference
Suncoast Developers Guild aren’t just a coding school — they’re a pillar of the Tampa Bay tech scene, and this place is all the better for their being around. Here’s one reason: they hold events like the upcoming Suncoast Developers Conference, which will happen online on Discord this Saturday, August 1, 2020.
At this free event, you’ll see Tampa Bay’s developers showcase and share their knowledge with others. They’ll cover all sorts of topics in bite-size (10 – 15 minute) presentations.
The conference will also feature some of Suncoast Developers Guild’s recent code school grads and their capstone projects. Get to know them, and if you like what you see and need more people in your organization, hire them!
I will be delivering a presentation at the conference, where I’ll talk about Ren’Py, the Python-powered visual novel authoring system that you can use to write visual novels, adventure games, turn-based role-playing videogames, and yes, dating simulation games. It’ll be your anime/programming dream mashup come true!
Once again, this conference is free-as-in-beer (and not free-as-in-mattress) and it happens Saturday, August 1st. To RSVP and find out more about the conference, visit the website at suncoast.io/conference!
