- It’s a space to share ideas – whether that means submitting articles, tutorials, or blog posts, or telling the Voxxed editorial team about some news or ideas you’ve got that you’d like them to broadcast on your behalf to the whole community.
- “Devoxx everyday,” bringing together the best of the conversation from the Java ecosystem into one portal.
- A place to facilitate discussion and wider learning with curated links to wider Parleys presentations and interviews.
- A new kind of media portal which will be hugely influenced by the community that uses it.
Stephan Janssen (@stephan007), the serial entrepreneur and the man behind Devoxx had to say the following about this initiative:
The Voxxed story starts with Devoxx, which I started in part so that I could get my personal fix of the best tech content around. I’m proud of how important Devoxx has become for developers in this community, but it only happens a few times a year. Where can I go then for a daily community hit, especially with online media so fragmented? So I thought, let’s bring everything together by pulling in blog feeds, reporting news, and housing tutorials, presentations and training courses – everything that people share that makes Devoxx what it is, into one place
There are so many people out there with amazing tech know-how that fly under the radar. I hope Voxxed can be the place where they share their stories. It’s also somewhere for new talent to shine. The Rockstars of our sector probably had their first speaking gig at a local community event. But not everyone enjoys the sometimes terrifying arena of a few hundred people staring back at them. By letting the community publish online, Voxxed gives new voices a platform. Today is just the first stage – a site that looks good, is easy to use and has great content. The next stage is for the community to drive it with excellent content and ideas”
Lucy Carey (@Lucyrushi), editor of Voxxed, says:
I love the creativity and energy of the tech sector, and one of the best parts of my job is being able to share stories from the people behind all the exciting stuff that this huge community is generating. When I heard that there was an opportunity to get involved with a new site developed by the people behind Parleys and Devoxx, I was hugely keen to come on board.
