Nerds Track

Unleash your nerdiness and win the DevDays 2023 Ubernerd Award 

Why simply switch on a light when you could use a Wi-Fi Smart Light Switch with Cloud API?  

Why water your plants with a boring old watering can when you could program a hydroponic system and monitor environmental impact and horticultural metrics on a fancy digital dashboard? 

It’s time to put on your geek chic and demo your latest over-the-top home application during the DevDays Nerds Track.  

Here are the rules:

  • Submit your presentation before June 1, using the form below.
  • If selected, pitch your nerd thing in 10 minutes and 0 seconds in one of our break-out sessions. (If you win, you get to do it again on the central stage.) 
  • Live presentations are good. Slides are fine, but no bonus points for excruciating detail.

Please note: we can only accept submissions from in-person participants at DevDays in Amsterdam 

The winning criteria:

The winner walks away with the DevDays Ubernerd Award, plus a free ticket to DevDays 2024. 

  • A blatant imbalance between the time needed to implement the nerd thing, and actual utility.
  • Added value of your solution over the obvious solution (zero is excellent, negative values are encouraged).
  • Expected admiration from other nerds (more = better).
  • Suppressed laughter from friends and family. Bonus points for eye-rolling.

The jury selects the presenters and the winner.  

The jury: Ewout Kramer, Ubernerd at Firely; James Agnew, Ubernerd at Smile Digital Health; Josh Mandel, Ubernerd at Microsoft. 

What else do I need to know?

  • We can only accept submissions from in-person participants at DevDays in Amsterdam.
  • If your application has been selected for presentation, we will let you know by June 3.
