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

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
