About Developer 30|30

 

We rely on software for all facets of our lives-- from communicating with each other, to paying our bills, to even figuring out where to go for dinner. But for some reason, we never stop and take the time to think about what went into creating them.

Canada has many globally recognized technical universities producing some of the top developers in the world. And because of this, Canada has become a hotbed for technological innovation, catching the attention of the rest of the world in the process.

Which is why we established the Developer 30 Under 30 Awards in 2017, to celebrate these contributions and recognize the amazing talent that is moving our world forward. The inagural year was an astounding success, and we cannot wait to see how the nominees continue to raise the bar this year!
