Devhub is a community space for developers of all levels. Our mission is to engage the developer community and provide a hub where devs can come to work, learn, and exchange knowledge. We achieve our mission, in part, by putting on educational events for developers including Lunch&&Learns and Workshops.
Workshops for Developers
Half or full day hands-on Workshops aimed to expand the skill set of developers. These usually happen twice a month on Saturdays, and tickets for attendees are $100 each. Speakers will be paid for their time. Example here.
Devhub events are a great platform for current & aspiring speakers in the tech community to network, share their knowledge, and become part of a bigger initiative promoting lifelong learning. We collaborate with our speaker partners to build interest on a topic through our Lunch&&Learn series, then expand on these ideas in depth and through hands-on learning in a Workshop format. If you are approved for a Workshop, we will ask you to also give a Lunch&&Learn beforehand, though this is not mandatory.
These are educational events - while we welcome you to mention your company and their product/service if relevant, this should not be the main focus.
- In-person at Devhub Vancouver
- 4-6 hours on a Saturday is our regular scheduled time, though there is some flexibility
Workshops provide education in new and specialized areas in order to strengthen and diversify Canada’s developer community. Attendees often take their learning back to their workplace, apply it in building a side project, or add it to their resume to remain competitive in today’s market. While attendees may have different motivations, they all walk away having learned something exceptionally useful.
