If you weren’t at FinDEVr New York last week, you missed out! We had dozens of top-notch companies on stage giving thought-provoking presentations, launching new products, and showing off with captivating live demos. What’s more, the FinDEVr format fostered high impact networking sessions complete with an open bar, yard games, and VR gaming. Here are a few highlights:

Calling All Development Teams – Speak at FinDEVr London

FDLD17_EventLogoV2(large)

It’s not every day there’s an opportunity for a fintech developer to share how they’re innovating from stage, which is why we created FinDEVr. FinDEVr is the only event that brings together the people behind fintech: the developers, CTOs, VPs of engineering, software engineers and architects, UX designers and programmers creating financial innovations and enabling technology.

If you’re working on solutions for the fintech, finance and banking industries, the upcoming FinDEVr London on June 12 & 13 is for you. FinDEVr offers a powerful opportunity for technologists to reach 400+ peers in order to:

  • FDLD17_EventLogoV3_wdate(large)Drive product adoption of APIs/platforms/SDKs
  • Showcase new and trending technology and the inspiration behind it
  • Establish technical leadership of the industry while educating the market
  • Garner press recognition and gather feedback on innovations

Through 15-minute, TED style presentations, companies showcase their latest innovations, case studies, tutorials and best practices through demos, live coding, slides, and videos. During interspersed networking in an exhibition area, presenters have the chance to connect one-on-one with attendees for a deeper dive. With a limited number of companies selected to participate (a max of 30 each day), the presenter to attendee ratio is excellent.

It’s not every day there’s an opportunity for a developer to present how their technology came to be, what it does, and how it enables other fintech solutions. Today is the day. Apply to speak at FinDEVr London and reach 400+ developers this June.

For more information on speaking, please review the brochure for prospective presenting companies here: london2017.findevr.com/presenterpdf. And then fill out the online application here: london2017.findevr.com/application.

Twitter Talk from FinDEVr 2017 New York

FinDEVr New YorkTwitterLogo_blue_new may be done. But with FinDEVr London only a few months away, we’re already looking forward to seeing what the international developer community is doing to drive innovation in financial technology.

This year in New York, our two-day developers conference took user experience to new levels – and we’re not just talking about the state-of-the-art virtual reality sessions available for sampling at our FinDEVr Gaming Zone, either. Our partnership with Slido enabled us to bring the wisdom and curiousity of the crowd to life with a digital, Q&A display that kept everyone in the conversation. And, of course, Twitter continues to be one of our favorite ways to hear from our attending audience on what’s hot, what’s cool, and sometimes simply what’s what.

FinDEVrNY-tweet019

To celebrate our appreciation for our Tweeting developer community at FinDEVr, we offered a pair of awards: Most Active Tweeter and Best Use of #FinDEVr. Our top tweeters were awarded one of a number of prizes such as a miniature drone or a Chromecast – as well as the admiration of their fellow FinDEVr fans on social media.

Now let’s relive a little of that social media magic from FinDEVr 2017 New York.

FinDEVr  2017 New York is in the books. Our second developers conference in New York was a great opportunity to take a look at some of the technologies that continue to drive fintech innovation forward. As always, we asked our attendees to tell us which companies and technologies were best positioned to make the greatest impact on the financial services industry in terms of providing greater security, increased efficiency, and a better user experience for consumers. Here is what our attendees had to say:

Favorite FinDEVr Alum

  • Quovo and SoFi for their partnership that shows how an easy-to-use authentication API provides security to accounts at more than 200+ FIs while improving and streamlining the user experience.

Day One Attendee Favorite

  • MapD for its database and visualization layer that transforms Big Data into immersive, instantaneous, and actionable analytics.

Day Two Attendee Favorite

  • Prevoty for its insight into the way embedded, runtime security enables cybersecurity professionals to provide an additional layer of defense against vulnerabilities and fraudulent behavior.

Favorite Established Company

  • BlueMetal for its virtual agents, natural language processing, and conversational UX that transforms the nature of customer engagement in financial services.

Favorite Startup Company

  • Modelshop for its analytic decision platform that enhances the loan origination, portfolio optimization, and fraud prevention processes for both FIs and consumers.

Celebrate the Start of Spring with the Return of FinDEVr New York

FinDEVr_photo

FinDEVr New York 2017 begins tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21st. And after the successful launch of FinDEVr New York last year, we can’t wait to see what this year’s collection of developers, engineers, and technologists have in store for us.

FinDEVr is a bicoastal affair, with shows in Silicon Valley in the fall and New York in the spring. And this year, much the same can be said of our presenters. As our FinDEVr New York 2017 presenter map below reveals, the majority of this year’s presenters hail from either California on the west coast or from any one of a number of locations from as far north as New York City to as far south as Florida on the east coast.

FDNY Presenter Map-01

And this takes nothing away from the legions of talented fintech developers innovating in places as diverse as Utah and Wisconsin, Missouri and Ohio, Washington state and Georgia. From companies and startups large and small, we’re looking forward to two days of unique insights into the way some of our most talented developers, engineers, and CTOs put the “tech” in fintech.

So to help you make the most of FinDEVr NewYork, here are a few notes and things to keep in mind

  • Who and What? You – and maybe a colleague or two – joining dozens of companies for two days of high-level, code-friendly, demonstrations and presentations on the key technologies driving fintech innovation today.
