In 2016, /dev/summer will return to Møller Centre, Cambridge - our home for the previous four dev_cycles events.
The Møller Centre at Churchill College is a dedicated residential management training and conference centre located within the historic city of Cambridge.
We have held workshops and small events at this venue and always enjoyed a high level of professional service from the team. The facilities are modern, comfortable and thoughtfully provided.
The city is an attractive university town with a history stretching back to pre-Roman times and is particularly popular with overseas visitors.
Cambridge is about fifty miles north of London, from which it has excellent access by public transport (45 minutes by fast train) and by private vehicle. Stansted and Luton airports are nearby and are served by many European airports, often by budget airlines.
Visitors may also arrive at Heathrow or Gatwick airports, which are further away, but still readily accessible by public transportation.
Need help planning which sessions to attend? We've provided a breakdown of our various session types below.
A presentation and discussion of real-life (not theoretical) experiences of the application (or mis-application) of service design techniques. Case studies and experience reports include some discussion of lessons learned and an indication of how novel the work is.
Participants learn a new approach, tool or technology through using it to solve one or more practical exercises. Any software/hardware requirements are disclosed in the session description.
A session focused around some specific tool, technique or issue. Primarily led by the speaker, tutorials usually include some elements of interactivity or individual / group exercise.
An in-depth working session on a specific topic. May include paper presentations.
Our Lightning Talk session is packed with small but perfectly formed talks and experience reports, delivered rapid-fire by a mix of experienced and brand new speakers alike.
Between 5 and 10 minutes long, they're a great way to learn quickly, and an even better way to test the water for a full talk or topic you're thinking of speaking about.
