Technical Levels are defined as:

High Advanced/Expert level: Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed in detail. Assumes fluency with the technology being discussed. Most likely to appeal to practitioners responsible for technology on a day-to-day basis
Medium Intermediate level. Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed, but the focus will be on decision-making and trends around the technology, rather than on the detailed working of the technology itself. Assumes familiarity with technical concepts but not necessarily detailed, hands-on knowledge.
Low Introductory or Business level. Technology concepts and implementation are addressed from a high level if at all, with the focus instead being on markets, industry trends, or leadership strategies in which the technology plays a role. No prior knowledge of the technology is required to understand the discussion.

With the rise of communications APIs and the increasing availability of learning tools for new programmers, the “citizen developers” movement may soon be headed to your enterprise domain, if it’s not already there. Citizen developers are regular users given the power to use codeless tools to solve their own needs – whether that’s adding click-to-call functionality to an existing business process or creating an app from scratch to address a new business requirement.

Are you a manager of employees who are asking to learn development skills? Maybe you’re a systems administrator and would love to remove a mundane task from your daily workload. Or maybe you’d like to add agility and speed to market by tapping a new source of creativity within your organization. Join this session, and get first-hand advice from a collaboration architect-turned-citizen developer at Medtronic. He’ll share what he’s learned about breaking down the barriers to coding, encouraging his colleagues to become developers – and problem solvers! – and helping others over the build vs. buy hurdle.

KEY QUESTIONS:
* How can I know that building a solution is better than buying one?
* How can I get my team to want to learn programming?
* I’m interested, but how do I start learning coding?
* Isn’t building a solution putting my company at risk?
