A snapshot of previous Dev Day Conferences

Looking back at the past Dev Day conferences, we’ve seen a number of insightful speakers. For example, Linda Rising, an American author, lecturer, and consultant spoke on “Fearless Change”. Here, Linda spoke about how smart people are rational, how good always triumphs over evil and how skeptics, cynics, and resistors (not the electrical kind) should always be ignored.

Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, in his keynote address, emphasized the importance of simplicity. He went on to explain that keeping things simple keeps you focused. He also explained how simplicity is elegant in its design and it also gives you room to evolve.

Dr. Subha Fernando, Head of Department of Computational Mathematics from University of Moratuwa’s thoughts were on AI and how the Industry could utilize these technologies for a more advanced tomorrow. She explained how AI can and should be taught to act humanely and think humanly. Apart from that, they should also think rationally and act rationally as well.

What’s in store for Dev Day 2017?

Now that is a very interesting question indeed. For starters, there is a very powerful lineup of speakers lined up. We’re not talking about the literal electrical devices (those are powerful too), but we are actually referring to the people who will be talking on stage at Dev Day 2017.
