WeCamp is an unforgettable experience where developers can learn in one week more about themselves, teamwork and their skills than they could in an office.Read more »
WeCamp has been the single most important catalyst of my personal and professional growth. Twice.— Ramon de la Fuente, Owner of Future500
Learn from the experiences of peers and a professional coach. Get a sneak peek into the kitchen of others.
WeCamp 2016 is 5-day coding retreat on a private island. You will be teamed up with 4 others and a personal coach to create fantastic software. In five days time, you will go from a new software concept to the working product and experience all stages of the process.
First of all, the team comes up with an idea. The next step is to specify who the product is for and what it should be doing to produce the most value to the end-user. We believe that developers can get a lot out of this part of the event. Who are we targeting? What do we want them to achieve using our product? And how will our target group incorporate our product into their existing routines?
After that, it's implementation time. Will the team work iteratively or cascading? What measures do they take to make sure their released software works as advertised? What's their best way of working together and keep everyone focused? What kind of communication does an immersive project like this require? All these choices are theirs to make. Again, with the continuous help of their personal coach!
On the very last day of WeCamp, all teams will present their working product to their peers.
During the week on the island, the coaches will help your developer create a personal development plan, to ensure a continuing value for their attendance on the island. Additionally, about a month after WeCamp finished, there will be an online session for your developer with their coach to review how WeCamp affected their work.
On Saturday, every attendee leaves with a certificate of attendance.
