Happiness Conf

CFP closed on:

Developers are some of the most highly sought after professionals in today’s economy. People refer to us as “King Makers” and offer us large salaries, free food, and unlimited vacation policies. But why are many teams still falling victim to death marches, toxic culture in their teams and communities, and engineering practices that do anything but put the developer first?

We’re looking to bring together developers of all stripes to talk about engineering practices, technology, and culture that makes them happy as developers. We have a lot of fun planned, so you won’t want to miss this :)

Tickets Now Available!

Date: April 29th + 30th

Where: Somerville, MA at the Historic Somerville Theatre

Venue

The Historic Somerville Theatre in Somerville, MA. The theatre is in the heart of Davis Square, directly on the MBTA Red Line.

From the Somerville Theatre Website:

The Somerville Theatre, part of the Hobbs Building in the heart of Davis Square, was designed by the firm of Funk & Wilcox of Boston and built in 1914 by Joseph Hobbs. Designed for stage shows, vaudeville, opera, and that new fad – motion pictures – the theatre was only one of the Hobbs Building attractions, which also included a basement café; bowling alley and billiards hall; ten ground floor storefronts; and the Hobbs Crystal Ballroom on the second floor. The second and third floors also contained leased office space. The cost to build the Hobbs Building was $200,000.

The theatre opened its doors for the first time on May 11, 1914. The opening program featured a music and dance act – The Stewart Sisters; a comedy playlet by the Fuller-Rose company called “A King For A Day;” a singing skit by the Adairs; and “The Inventor’s Wife” – a two-reel film presentation.
