Raising the bar

International software development conference for professional developers who care about quality code and bettering their practices

« I’m not a great programmer; I’m just a good programmer with great habits. »  - Kent Beck

Never Stop Learning

A conference that doesn’t challenge your pre-conceptions is not a conference worth attending !

Created by developers for developers, NewCrafts is an independent and international event on software development held annually in Paris and Bordeaux.

Because we believe it is not enough for code to work, we want to question the way we develop, how we perceive our profession and craft.

For the 7th edition, we've planned two days of advanced talks, hands-on labs and open-session spaces accessible all day !

Newcrafts 2020 has been cancelled

We're really sorry for the change of plan, but after a few crisis meetings this week we took the heartbreaking decision of canceling NewCrafts 2020 and workshops. We believe that the Covid-19 epidemic will probably be declining in France by May but we can’t be certain, or make any assumptions for other countries of our speakers or attendees.

We have no legal obligation to cancel the event at the moment, but if Phase 3 is triggered, chances are that no events will be allowed during April and most probably May.

After assessing our financial risk if the outbreak lasted, we had no other choice but to cancel the event to prevent going bankrupt. At this point, advance payments for hotel booking and the venue will be lost but going forward would expose us personally. We decided not to postpone the event, hence NewCrafts’ next edition will be in May 2021.

Who are we?


The event will take place at NEW CAP Event Center — 3, Quai de Grenelle, Paris
