Many software developers were disappointed in September this year when StackOverflow made the decision to cancel the DevDays conferences scheduled to take place in London, Sydney, Washington and San-Francisco. Seeing the great line-up of talks that were scheduled for the London event, CodeKen and Equal Experts decided to mount a rescue mission and went on securing the support of the majority of the speakers.

"We owe a large part of our success to our ability to leverage outstanding developers from our highly selective network of associates," said Thomas Granier, Managing Director of Equal Experts. "So, we jumped at the opportunity to support the developer community at large."

"Equal Experts were the perfect partner for the conference," Jon Dickinson from CodeKen adds. "Having a sponsor with such a highly skilled development capability meshed perfectly with the experienced speaker line up and the insightful audience."

The event took place in Canary Wharf on the 14th and 15th November with about 100 delegates attending.

There were thought provoking talks including Jon Skeet talking about the benefits of coding in Evil, with help from Tony the Pony and his Evil hench-kitty. Michael Barker from LMAX, and Martin Thompson, shattered many folklore assumptions about building high performance systems. Julian Brown from Equal Experts gave insights on how to introduce NoSQL in the Enterprise. Tom Wright used two developer guinea pigs to perform a live demonstration of sensory substitution software that helps visually impaired people to see.

The conference was so well received that CodeKen and Equal Experts are planning on running a similar event towards the end of 2012.
