As professionals and/or hobbyists in the computing industry, we employ many different languages and technologies. Heterogeneous systems are becoming the norm. Over the past few years many developer meetup groups have formed in Vancouver, but most arenarrow-scoped and focus on one language or tool. While these groups have their place, the best talks often have a broader appeal than the specific focus of the host meetup.
Polyglot Vancouver's mission is to bring together software engineers, computer scientists, system administrators, or whatever title you choose, via a series of monthly events with excellent technical talks that have broad appeal.
