Conference Background

AIM HDC (Heartland Developers Conference) was founded in 2003, with the primary purpose of providing the Midwest software development community with a world-class event at a reasonable cost. What started as a 100-person, one-day event in Des Moines, Iowa has turned into one of the largest, most successful annual developer conferences in the country.

In addition, AIM HDC provides the regional community with opportunities to speak before large groups of peers. Those who present at the conference gain exposure to our network of technology professionals. Attendees forge lasting relationships, exchange ideas to advance development techniques and discover new technologies. The goal of each event is to create a knowledgeable and accessible network of leaders.

Lastly, AIM HDC provides vendors and partners the opportunity to stay connected to the growing community of software developers in our region. We believe that an important part of growing the community is making sure that each section of the ecosystem stays in sync. AIM HDC provides an annual touch point for businesses that serve the software design and development industry.
