The latest edition of "The Programmer's Guide to the Universe" (our standard repository for all knowledge and wisdom) lists three definitions for the term “Code Forward”:
1. In finance, a forward contract (also known as a forward) is a type of a derivative instrument. It is a customized contract between two parties, whereby one of the parties agrees to buy a specific asset at a specific date in the future at a predetermined price that is agreed upon today. A code forward is a contract where the underlying asset is software and the seller is a developer, a group of developers, or a specialized broker.
2. Code forward (Latin: programma deinceps) is an aphorism derived from the poetry of Horace (Latin: Sextusdecimus Horatius Abacus), which can be found in his “Odes To Algorithms” (2, 48, 4). The ode praises a young software developer learning new technologies, and the phrase "Code forward!" is a motto repeated throughout the poem by the lyrical subject as a means of encouraging the developer not to stray from his path.
3. Code Forward is a conference for software developers organized by software developers, which will take place on April 7, 2017 at the Sound Garden Hotel in Warsaw. It is a meeting of enthusiasts who decided to dedicate their professional careers to writing, testing, and maintaining code. It’s sponsored by Credit Suisse and Luxoft and is entirely organized by a group of passionate programmers working for these companies. The range of topics covered by the speakers is wide, but since conference time is limited, participants should expect a natural bias towards areas that the creators of Code Forward find especially exciting, such as Cloud, DevOps, and Big Data.
