Last saturday, I had the oportunity to visit this famous event which took place in Milan, in a new location called BASE, 6000 sqm, that was the old offices of the Ansaldo.
This is publicized as the "greatest technical conference of Europe, regarding software development". And, in my poor experience, it completely was. They programmed two days of conferences and two days of workshops. I attended only the last day of conference.
There, more than a hundred talks took place and all leader in the market companies were there, offering a job or simply selling their products.
Among this forest of advertisemente, there were also a lot of skilled presenters who showed the most interesting and up to date novelties of the technology word.
The passwords were Faas, that is Function as a service, serverless, microservices and containers. Some of the content taught also parallell and distributed computing, big and realtime data and, ultimately, the SMACK stack.
If you want more information on the event, you can find them on their site. Maybe next year we will meet there.
And, finally, a photo of my old laptop (which is slowly becoming a sticker plate).
