Are you a software engineer interested in getting hands-on with current development and deployment tools? What about open source projects for broadcasters, want to know more?
If so, the next EBU Developer Conference (#EBUDevCon) is for you! The event takes place 30 September to 01 October 2014 at the EBU in Geneva, Switzerland, and provides an opportunity to learn about best practices in software engineering. Participants will be able to improve their engineering workflows by using new ideas presented during the event to run software-driven broadcast infrastructures.
Aside from an opportunity to discover new tools and technologies, participants will find out more about key open source projects for broadcasters, such as EBU.IO. EBU Technology & Innovation created this platform to facilitate the application of best practice in software development across project groups. Members can run demonstrations and proofs-of-concepts, access starter kits and manage experimental services. To test our beta version, go to EBU.IO.
Discussions will take place around agile management, big data, and infrastructures. Speakers from a range of broadcasters and media solutions to media organizations and companies will present.
For instance, Michael Laing (New York Times) will tell us more about global scaling at the NYT online at his organization; Thomas Parisot (BBC) will touch on seeding and farming their source code; and Leonard Bouchet (RTS) will dive into open minded software development.

EBU Devcon’14 is a great place to meet people addressing similar challenges on a daily basis. Take advantage of this opportunity and sign up now!
