As tech industries continue to grow worldwide, innovative devs not only deserve acclaim, they demand it.
Plastic Havas’ third annual Developer 30 Under 30 awards made sure to bring this acclaim to the best and brightest of the country by acknowledging that devs are the cornerstone of the unprecedented growth we are seeing of the Canadian tech sector.
After 800 plus nominations, candidates were evaluated by some of the most influential tech leaders in Canada, including VP of Development Hybrid Cloud at IBM, Steven Astorino, General Manager of Azure Cloud at Microsoft, Khalil Alfar, and Chief Technology Officer of the Government of Canada, Marc Brouillard.
“Developers not only contribute to the world we live in today; they create the foundation that make it possible. And while the rise of technological innovation in Canada gained international attention, we noticed the brains behind it were largely overlooked. In 2017 we set out to change that by highlighting the people from across the country moving our world forward.” Sep Seyedi, founder Developer 30 Under 30 and CTO Plastic Havas.
