Developers are taking control of the privacy conversation. Join us.
We're providing the beer, pizza, and privacy experts. You provide the conversation.
Developers are in the crosshairs of a nationwide explosion of lawmaking. Legislators and regulators are making decisions about software privacy that will make your work more difficult, and this is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Anyone who writes software -- no matter the language or platform -- must understand the issues and take the lead in the discussion to ensure privacy protections are effective but do not impede growth in the business of creating software.
That’s why we’re bringing the privacy conversation to developers in cities across the U.S. The series will include conversations guided by discussion leaders to help developers better understand the changing privacy landscape and give them a voice in the dialogue. This isn't a heavy event, it's a conversation led by and for developers which is why we're also providing a fully stocked happy hour. Because we know even the biggest challenges can be solved over a few beers (just not too many).
