The world of software startups is full of surprises.
But one startup is doing it right.
Raleigh Web Development, which helps companies create and manage websites, is launching a series of events this summer that will offer developers a chance to learn how the industry is changing.
The event will kick off in June with the Raleigh Web Development Summit, which will focus on the basics of web development.
Then, in July, Raleigh Web Developers Workshop, which takes place at the Raleigh Regional Business Center, will introduce the industry’s most popular skills, including development practices and tools, and offer hands-on experiences for those who are interested.
And in August, Raleigh Developers Conference will be held at the Downtown Raleigh Convention Center.
For now, the events are only available through the Raleigh-based nonprofit Raleigh Web Developer Summit, where the Raleigh developer community has already invested heavily in the initiative.
The summit was originally conceived in 2013, but Raleigh Web developers have since taken the initiative to bring the event to other cities.
Last year, the Raleigh Council on Business and Economic Development awarded Raleigh Web development $250,000 in grants to improve its website.
Rice University is planning an event with the same name to help developers learn more about the Web.
It will take place June 12-15 in a hotel in downtown Raleigh.
Riders on the bus will learn the latest web development trends, the latest best practices and techniques and meet with the companies participating in the conference.
There will also be a Q&A session with local developers and industry leaders.
Ridley Web Development is one of several organizations working to create an event that will be a gateway to the industry.
The Raleigh-focused Summit for the New Web is one example.
And the Raleigh Business Council recently started a project to host a Web Developer Developer Day.
In addition to providing a networking opportunity for developers and the industry, Raleigh web developers are hoping to get more industry-wide visibility into the industry and bring some attention to the local economy.
“It’s really important that we’re helping people understand what’s going on and how it works,” said Adam Smith, Raleigh’s director of communications and marketing.
“We really want to make it easy for people to get in contact with other developers who are doing the same thing.
If we can make it happen, we’re very excited.”
The Raleigh Web Summit will help to promote the Raleigh area, Smith said.
“We’re trying to get the whole region on board,” he said.
“This will help get Raleigh recognized as a tech hub, which is a key piece of this whole story.”
Raleigh is the fourth largest city in North Carolina, and the fourth-largest in the United States.
The area has seen a steady increase in companies seeking to develop, manage and manage their websites.
This trend is evident across the country, with more companies and agencies making the move to Raleigh to open offices and build out their tech operations.
The city’s economic development agency, Raleigh Economic Development Corporation, is one that is trying to increase awareness about the new wave of companies that are making the shift to the Raleigh metropolitan area.
“When I see people moving to Raleigh, I’m not thinking about the office or the office job, I think about the job opportunity,” said Greg Smith, the agency’s director for business development and economic development.
“And that’s really what Raleigh is about.
People are moving here to work and they’re doing it here, and it’s important for us to see it.”
Rider’s viewThe Raleigh Business Club and other business leaders are already working on ways to get involved in the event.
Raleigh Business Development Council, the council’s executive committee, is planning to host an event and have an informational session at the North Carolina Convention Center in the near future.
The business council is also hosting a panel on the future of Raleigh in October at the city’s downtown Raleigh Convention Centre.
The Raleigh Economic Council and Raleigh Business Association are also sponsoring an event at the downtown Raleigh Civic Center in October to discuss the impact of the Web on Raleigh’s economy.
The local businesses participating in Raleigh’s Web Summit include The Triangle Center for the Arts, The Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau, North Carolina Institute of Technology, Raleigh Hospitality Association, Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and more.
