Inspiration Talks

There’s more than just tutorials—we also have several inspiration talks that will fill you with new ideas and energy.

Throughout our lives and our careers, people come and go. In some cases, it’s nothing more than a quick interaction. But sometimes, it turns out to be more than that. Sometimes, we connect on a deeper level and amazing things begin to happen.

In this talk, discover the power of making connections. And find out how even the smallest interaction can lead to some pretty big life-changing events.

Keynote Speech: The Red Thread of Fate — Tammy Coron

We have a ton of tools at our disposal when we program – Functional Programming, Protocol Oriented Programming, Object Oriented Programming, and Design Patterns. We have a tenaciousness to spend most of our lives on things that don’t work.

Some of us also have a superpower: We remember to step back from our app and look at it from the user’s point of view. In this talk we apply our tools, tenaciousness, and superpower to the game of life.

The Game of Life — Daniel Steinberg

Developers have referred to the App Store Review process as a black box, one that cannot be understood. In this talk, I’ll share the lessons we learned from the inside of the App Store, and how we managed to help change the world, one app at a time.

Lessons from the App Store — Phillip Shoemaker

Dru Freeman has spent 30 years surviving in the tech industry – from small startups to major corporations, through tech booms and economic blasts.

In this inspiration talk, Dru will share how to last 30 years in an ever changing ever “Youth’ening” field; and how to understand, leverage, and embrace our differences. Weird is okay; we are all weird in our own ways!

Embracing the Different — Dru Freeman

Cate has spent her career working on mobile and documenting everything she learns using WordPress. Now she combines the two as Automattic’s mobile lead.

We’re not sure what Cate will talk about yet – but we do know it will be incredible!

Inspiration Talk TBD — Cate Huston

For the third year in a row, James Dempsey and the Breakpoints are back! :D

As usual, James will be running an amazing conference party for us with music and games – including a cool interactive trivia night! He’ll also dazzle us with a cool inspiration talk, which is still TBD :]

The team and I are really excited about RWDevCon 2018. We know you’ll come away from this conference with a ton of new ideas, a fresh, inspired outlook on your career, and some great new connections with amazing people!

But that’s not all! This year’s conference includes a brand new feature — RWConnect — designed to foster connections with other conference attendees. Stay tuned for more details about that next week!

And even more great news: for a limited time you can get $100 off your RWDevCon ticket, but don’t wait — this discount ends in two weeks. We’d hate for you to miss out on this great deal.

We’re can’t wait to meet you all in April!
