This year we were a part of the WeAreDevelopers world congress in Vienna, Austria. The WeAreDevelopers World Congress takes place in Vienna once a year and provides thousands of developers with the latest insights.
Since 2015, once a year, on a (hopefully) sunny day, the global community meets at WeAreDevelopers, an event dubbed by many as the “Woodstock of Developers”.
WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2018 brought together 8,000 techies from 70 countries for 72-hours of pure dev-fun, with more than 150 of the brightest minds in tech and the largest playground for developers in Europe. And we saw it all first hand recently!
One of the main things that’s great about this congress is the fact that there are many panels held by famous tech people such as Steve Wozniak of Apple and John Romero of Doom, Wolfenstein 3D and many more. Also, we should mention Joel Spolsky (founder of Stack Overflow and Trello) and Andreas M. Antonopoulos (best-selling author, speaker, educator and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts) both joined the WeAreDevelopers 2018 as keynote speakers.
During the duration of the congress, many new software and IT technologies were presented. There was a lot of talk about PWA (progressive web applications), but also about blockchain’s role in the future development as well as slightly futuristic topics such as robotics, and the possiblities of those. Let us just tell you that we saw a guy fly a drone with nothing but Nativescript and Angular. It’s amazing to think how far technology has come, and how many ways there are to implement it in your business. Now, more than ever, technology is becoming the tool of the future.
We also met some of our partners, enjoyed the chill out zone, and – my favorite – retro corner, filled with many nostalgic devices from last century. It’s not all about learning and working, sometimes you also have to have fun!
We can’t wait to see what they will have for us next year, considering this one was already so amazing!
