Agenda

We have snacks, drinks, interesting talks, small-group discussions and of course plenty of time for you to network with other engineers and meet companies interested in telling you about their projects.

We design our event to offer value to engineers... We're not at all like a boring "recruitment fair". That's why high quality, experienced developers attend our events and every event is sold out :-)
