Software conference in Paris

21-22 May 2015, Paris

Conference Manifesto!

It's about programming

but also about experience and feedback

It's not only about technologies

but also about practices

It's not only about software craftsmanship

but also about learning and exchanges for everyone

It's not only about business and applications

but mainly about people

In other words, it's a software conference for developers by developers. We love crafting software with art, passion and technology and share it with everyone.

The conference offers attendees the chance to move between 2 separate tracks, small workshops and off-talk activities during the two days.

There will be also an additional pre-conference day with workshops from some of our speakers (separate ticket).
