Last year conferences
Already in 2018 we had the pleasure to visit 2 conferences in Europe:
- APPDEVCON in Amsterdam, Netherlands (https://appdevcon.nl/)
- DEVOXX in Antwerp, Belgium (https://devoxx.be/)
We had a great time visiting these two cities 🙌 and we can’t wait to do that again this year 😎.
What we expect from the two conferences in 2019 👤💬?
Like last year, we are interested in several different topics. For me, I am looking forward to Methodology & Culture slots, Shady is most interested in Java stuff. All in all, we hope that there are several diffent interesting speaches about:
- Architecture & Security
- Cloud, Containers & Infrastructure
- Big Data & Machine Learning
- Methodology & Culture
- Other programming languages
- Web & UX
- Mobile & IoT
We ❤️ food!
The title is speaking for itself. We just love food 🍴! Traveling ✈️ gives good opportunity to see and taste something new 👅. All over the world every culture has a unique and special cuisine. Each cuisine is very different because of different methods of cooking the food. We try to taste (almost) everything, when we arrive in new countries and cities.
We are really looking forward to seeing, what Bucharest’s and Kiev’s specialities are 🍽 and to trying them all! Here some snapshots from our trips to the conferences in Amsterdam Netherlands and Krakow Poland in 2018…
What about the costs 💸?
One great thing at 47 North Labs is, that your personal development 🧠 is important to the company. Besides hosted internal events and workshops, you can also visit international conferences 🛫 and everything is paid 💰. Every employee can choose his desired conferences/workshops, gather the information about the costs and request his visit. One step of the approval process is writing 📝 about his expectation in a blogpost. This is exactly what you are reading 🤓📖 at the moment.
