FinDEVr London: Crowd Favorites and Top Tweeters

FinDEVr London is a wrap! Big thanks to all those who attended our first developers conference in the U.K. We had a great time meeting developers and software engineers from around the world who had come to London to find out more about the technologies that are driving the latest innovations in fintech.

We would also like to thank our sponsors and partners, our AV team and volunteers, and everyone else who came out and made FinDEVr’s London debut a success. We are looking forward to coming back!

And last but not least, let’s give a tip of the hat to FinDEVr London’s Crowd Favorites. Chosen exclusively by our attending audience, four companies were selected: a Crowd Favorite and a Runner Up for both Day One and Day Two.

Day One Crowd Favorite: HackerOne 

Day One Crowd Favorite Runner Up: Trusted Key

Day Two Crowd Favorite: IdentityMind Global

Day Two Crowd Favorite Runner Up: Streamdata.io

Thanks to our followers on Twitter, who were an active part of FinDEVr London. Whether you were able to join our live audience or followed the conference online or on your mobile phone, the #FinDEVr hashtag @FinDEVr was a great way to make your opinions heard and learn from the observations of the fintech professionals among our followers.

Again this year we awarded a pair of Twitter prizes. Taking top honors for Best Use of #FinDEVr was Jimmi Bram (@JimmiBram) of Copenhagen, Denmark, with his especially keen eye on cryptography and ID verification technologies.

Earning Runner Up was Simon Bussy (@SimonBussyAltus) of the U.K. Simon won not only for his best practices strategy of including photos with his tweets, but also for tweeting the equation all of us at FinDEVr live by: “fintech + great venue + good coffee = great morning.”

And speaking of Twitter photos and best practices, our winner for the Best #FinDEVr Photo went to Sofia Mashovets (@SofiaMashovets) of Harborx.

Sofia accompanied her Twitter photo (below) with the note: “My super power? Making the CEO and CTO take silly pics at 💪🏻they’re the best, really (these guys, not the pics).”
