On October 27, 2015, the Engineering team held its first Developer Day event.

We had a simple goal, carve out a small space in time where we could gather as developers from across the organization to connect on all things tech. After months of planning we were able to enjoy mingling with each other as we heard interesting talks on how we use big data to predict article success, tips to manage growing teams, the hidden secrets to creating “Chatbots”, and many more.

We felt the event achieved the desired outcome when we noticed the ease with which all interacted with each other.

We even had a cool photo booth, courtesy of the event’s Creative Director, Jessica Muñiz Witmer.

It was great to witness the engagement and receive such positive feedback from our peers:

Here are the slides from the presentations:
