The 2-day event that will make a year of difference.

The conference was a great experience - insightful talks from an awesome diverse panel. The content of the talks was beneficial and I will definitely use what I learned in my day-to-day (short, mid and even long-term actions).

Felipe Bonfim
Just Eat Takeaway Head of Engineering

Really good speakers and overall the event had a good pace. I liked the mix of shorter and longer talks.

James Lee
Shopify Development Manager

It was much more than I expected. I met very thoughtful people and each talk contained something actionable.
