Akamai’s new Developer Track is a new end-to-end developer-focused experience at Edge 2016. Starting with a pre-conference day on Tuesday and running through the conference proper, Akamai’s Developer Track will explore deeply technical topics, with each session designed to give the tools, knowledge and insights they need to build faster and more robust websites and applications. Developers: this is your conference experience. The Developer Track’s program will focus on four stages of programming; and, be accompanied by a Developer Zone to facilitate networking within the conference community, so that devs can speak with their peers about how they are solving the problems of building a faster, more scalable web.


The Developer Track sessions will focus on: 

  1. User-Centric Development: serious talks on the path from development to usability with a focus on APIs, image performance and accessibility. 
  2. Technologist Master Series: these sessions look outside the app to the larger world they are a part of. We’ll address security and performance, understanding cellular networks, web performance standards, developing for challenging geographies, and more. 
  3. Akamai - Under the Hood: Get a better understanding of Akamai’s architecture, how it’s evolving around topics such as HTTP/2, and how to make Akamai work for you. 
  4. Developing for Akamai: These sessions aim to give developers immediately actionable insights for doing more for their web performance with Akamai.
