CTD at All Things Open


Last month, many of the Code the Dream interns attended the All Things Open Conference at the Raleigh Convention Center.  All Things Open is the largest open technology event on the East Coast with over 3,500 attendees. Over the course of the 3-day conference, there were more than 200 sessions. These sessions discussed a range of topics that related to Functional Light JavaScript,  Application Servers, C# test-driven development, Querying NoSQL with SQL, User Experience (UX),  and Visual Validation for Mobile Applications. With these sessions, our interns were able to learn about some of the emerging challenges that are facing coders and how open source technologies can help.

Crystal Williams-Brown raved about the Vue workshop. At first, she was nervous about building something in a framework that she had never used before. However, the Vue Vixens instructors were very encouraging and provided great instructions and handy tools.  Another intern, Romina, enjoyed being surrounded by other people that were passionate about coding and building apps and was surprised by the diversity she found. Many of our developers also got a lot out of the Blockchain session. In between going to the different sessions and meeting other developers from across the region, the team also took a moment to step into the All Things Open photo booth. The Code the Dream team had a great time attending All Things Open as can be seen with the photo above!
