Further / Higher Education (F/HE) in the UK is in the fortunate position to have talented and experienced developers working in its organisations, driving both service development and applied research. Because of this, developers in F/HE frequently contribute to a particularly rich source of technical innovation to the sector.

DevCSI is about helping software developers realise their full potential, by creating the conditions for them to be able to learn, network effectively, share ideas, collaborate and innovate creating a ‘community’ of developers in the learning provider sector which is greater than the sum of its parts. The developer benefits. The sector benefits.

One important thrust of DevCSI activity is to run and/or support events for and by developers and to encourage a community to form around these shared activities.
DevCSI is managed by UKOLN and funded by the JISC.
