StarCon is a two-day software engineering conference held in Waterloo, Ontario with two days of lightning talks about technology, computer science, programming, and the joy of learning about them!
Where and When
StarCon 2018 was held at University of Waterloo on January 6th and 7th, 2018. Pictures taken by Neha have been posted here. Talks were recorded and videos will be posted once they have been sent to us. Information about a potential StarCon 2019 will be announced soon.
My love of this conference format CANNOT be overstated. The speakers at #StarCon are rocking it. Congrats on a badass morning. #KWawesome
I'm enjoying the consistent theme across talks that people are awesome, learning is the best, and we've had good experiences with communities around our tech of choice. There's a lot of nice excitement in this room. #StarCon
StarCon would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of
the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is
situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that
includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. It is important to remember
that the land that we are using today for this event was stolen, and that there
is lots of work to do to bring back the rights that indigenous and Native people
deserve. We make this acknowledgement as part of our efforts to be inclusive and
respectful of people from diverse backgrounds.
