The event begins 12:00 UTC (5:00am PDT) May 12th, 2020. Speakers are scheduled to present for 24-hours. This global event aims to offer hope, raising awareness, and provide financial relief to people fighting the current global pandemic. Everyone is invited to attend for free. Tune-in to Twitch/YouTube. Sign up for updates at https://DevAroundTheSun.org.
“The two things that stuck out for me about this event were the mission; Part of our culture is ‘doing the right thing’ and anything we can do to contribute, I think there is value there,” said Quicken Loans CIO, Brian Woodring. “Second, this is a great opportunity to engage our team and connect us to the global developer community. Especially at a time like this, when a lot of conferences are being canceled and training isn’t available. A lot of the resources that people would normally use aren’t available. I thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to give our team the chance to engage and rally.”
