It’s soon going to be a year since we kickstarted our web designer/developer summit. The intent of our initiative was to help web professionals collaborate, network and share knowledge. We targeted 4 cities in 2016 – Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and finally, Hyderabad. Owing to the positive response from our fellow web professionals we are aiming to up those numbers this year by covering a wider range of cities, so hold on tight!
This year we commence Ctrl+F5 in Chennai, – the city known as the ‘Detroit of India’ at the Hyatt Regency on the 10th of February.
What’s new this year?
Firstly, we will be taking Ctrl+F5 to new cities with fresher, richer content. We’ll also be visiting Jaipur on the 3rd of March at the Radisson Blu. While in 2016, our content revolved around digital marketing and web design, in 2017 we plan to keep it web-developer centric as well. Taking vital feedback from our attendees into consideration, we have tailor-made hacks and trends from the industry’s finest! You can surely expect fresher topics & more industry experts coming coming your way!
