AIM HDC (Heartland Developers Conference) is a 3-day software development event for tech professionals. The event consists of hands-on workshops, keynote presentations, and other speakers, breakout sessions and networking events.


On Wednesday, hands-on workshops are offered prior to the beginning of the main conference. These sessions may be purchased in addition to the conference fee and cover a variety of topics. The same set of half-day workshops are offered in the morning and afternoon to accommodate various schedules and allow registrants to attend more than one workshop of interest.

Each half- or full-day workshop is:

  • Only open to conference registrants
  • Offers individualized attention (typical capacity 25 people)
  • Provides in-depth, instructor-led discussions in a specific area of interest

For a mere $60 or $120 fee, you will experience hours of skills development that would typically cost thousands of dollars.

Intensive Training Courses are also offered on Wednesday as stand-alone training sessions or can be combined with a discounted conference registration. See the Schedule or select the pages from the About tab to learn more about these great training opportunities.

In the evening, AIM HDC holds a welcome reception for all conference attendees, presenters, partners and sponsors from 7:00-9:00pm. This takes place at the Marriott Bistro and Patio which is connected to the conference headquarters and is a great way to meet fellow attendees and network in a relaxed environment before the big day.

Thursday and Friday feature keynotes along with nearly 40 breakout sessions. All sessions are open to all attendees. There is no need to pick a breakout path or area of interest. Simply attend the sessions in which you’re interested.
