Developer Road Trip to CPD

The Directors at Target are passionate about helping their team achieve and shape into successful professionals. Target Information Systems have decided this year to raise the profile for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) throughout the company; and it starts with the developers.

This week the Barnsley based Target developers took to the road towards Manchester to take their seats at UpFront 2015 – A Front-End Conference for Anyone Who Makes for the Web.

CPD is the driving force towards Target’s aim of being a successful and strong company with passionate and happy employees. The company see their team as their greatest asset; and continually look to utilise their skill-sets as well as encourage new opportunities to further develop their knowledge.

The UpFront Conference covered; design, front-end testing, cloud computing, mobile websites…and much more over the course of the day!

Not only was the conference educational for all our developers; Shaun our Senior Software Developer was the lucky Apple Watch winner of the Carbon Creative UK photo booth competition!

Shaun Bellis said, ‘We had a fantastic time attending the very first UpFront Conf in Manchester. Drawing speakers and attendees from around the world, the event went without a hitch. The presenters demonstrated exemplary knowledge and understanding in their respective specialisations. We came away from the event enthused and ready to implement what we learned; and I won an Apple Watch Sport’

Congratulations! We hope the development team enjoyed it!
