WeCamp is a great chance for developers to learn more about themselves and teamwork, develop their coding skills and experience new technologies; all in just under a week.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 2019 is 5-day coding retreat on a private island. You will be teamed up with 4 others and a personal coach to create the fantastic software that you've always wanted to build. In just five days, you'll start with an idea, transform it into a new software concept and develop it into a finished product.
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 keeping 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, so they can continue improving after they have left 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.
