“We are very lucky in Norwich to have a thriving and highly active tech community.”
Norfolk Developers meetups go straight to the heart of software development, looking at practices and processes used. Nor Dev, Norwich’s meetup for the thriving tech community in Norwich, invites both local and national speakers, so is always sure to have an interesting topic afoot.
Nor Dev’s mission is to make knowledge accessible; this meetup is fantastic if you want to take your knowledge to the next level, or are keen to find out about something new. Norfolk Developers aim is to bring you practical value.
Wednesday 12th October was the date of the regular Nor Dev meetup group at The Kings Centre in Norwich, this week featuring ‘Humanizing Tech’ with Karen Longdin and ‘The Evolution of SEO and is it dead?’ with our very own Head of Digital Marketing, Ellie Morgan.
This week’s topics explored some slightly different areas of the tech industry. We talked about: How to converse with your business, get your point heard and your projects sponsored, and how to manage and lead other technical people and teams who may know more, better or different to you; what happens when your technical knowledge is no longer enough? This was a fantastic and enlightening talk from Karen Longdin who is Head of IT and Architecture at Wyndam Vacation Rentals UK.
We then moved on to the evolution of SEO from Ellie, our Head of Digital Marketing, establishing that SEO is most definitely NOT dead. We reviewed what this means and how far we have come over the past 10 years; we then looked at some helpful reports in analytics that would be most useful to developers in ascertaining user behaviour on site.
We are always delighted to be able to impart some of our expertise and share our knowledge with others. Norfolk Developers have a conference in Norwich coming up, find more information on the website NorDEVCon: http://www.nordevcon.com/
