For two days in October, the city by the bay once again will be a bastion of fintech builders.
We are excited to announce our second annual event for fintech developers, software architects, CTOs, and other IT professionals: FinDEVr 2015 on 6/7 October in San Francisco, California.
Last year’s event featured speakers from 50 key fintech backbone companies such as Yodlee, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, TD Ameritrade, and Google, along with startups like Forte, Plaid, and Knox Payments (full list here). And we expect even more this year.
Earlier this year we talked to most of last year’s presenters and many attendees about our inaugural FinDEVr conference in 2014. We found overwhelming support for an event focused on the TECHNOLOGY used in building modern financial services.
And that’s why we’re heading back to our favorite venue in San Francisco: the conference center on the campus of UCSF Mission Bay. It’s convenient and super comfortable, but it holds only about 700 people, so act fast as tickets will sell out.
Last year we experimented with various presentation lengths. Based on feedback, we are standardizing with TED-style, 20-minute speaker slots focused on financial tools and technology, along with actual case study detail. At least five minutes of each presentation will be devoted to questions submitted by the audience.
And to allow attendees to better fine-tune their schedule to their technical interests and needs, FinDEVr will be dual-track for both days.
Finally, all the presenters will be readily accessible during lunch, breaks, and end-of-the-day happy hour to answer your questions and resolve hurdles you may be facing in adopting specific technologies.
We hope you’ll join us. Tickets for fintech builders are currently less than $500 (50% off) as part of our “presale.” So act now and save.
