Reading this story alone makes you feel good… 360|Flex has announced a CODE JAM on Sunday, August 12, the night before the conference starts. They are lining up a non-profit that will be the recipient of a shiny new Flex app, courtesy of the collective effort of Flex developers in attendance. Based on the talented list of 360|Flex speakers alone, whatever the app is, I’m sure it will be top notch.
Coding for charity is an incredible idea. With the shortage of Flex developers and such a high demand, many of us are doing pretty well developing on this platform. A chance to give back something, particularly coding a state-of-the-art app to a deserving client that would otherwise not be able to afford it, is a wonderful opportunity.
Those developers coming to the conference who are of a beginner and intermediate level also have a chance to work together with a premiere group, contribute accordingly, and learn a ton of development skills in the process.
It’s just one more thing that makes the 360|Flex conference very special. If you are going to the conference, how can you not come to this event? And if you haven’t registered yet, this should certainly put you over the edge! Register now!
An app like this, coding Flex for good, is comparable to a quilt. Each developer participating will likely contribute a key piece. The project as a whole will represent the very best of the Flex developer community. And I’m not just talking about the quality of code.
