I'm Attending!April 27, 2019April 27, 2019Southern DevUTC#Augusta Georgia currently isn't on most people's radar.
It sounds like a _small town_ but as the second largest city in the state we have just won the attention of the federal government because *USCYBERCOM* is moving to our backyard. Over the past year we have seen an extraordinary amount of development in our city when it comes to cyber security. However we would like to embolden our diverse community of developers and raise awareness to what holistic community development looks like.
Our *Goal* is to push the conversation of software development beyond the basics and push innovation in design, architecture, data storage, and technical leadership. We believe an annual conference is a way to begin these discussions that can carry over to our developer community, businesses, and organizations throughout the year to improve ourselves and by extension, our community.
### When: April 27th
###Where: The [Georgia Cyber Center](https://cybercenter.georgia.gov/) in the heart of Augusta.
