Craft Conference is an international festival-like event about software craft, where attendees can learn about the latest tools, methods and practices of software craft. Craft Conference serves as a compass on new technologies and trends provided by top-notch experts from all over the world.
All participants come with different experiences and it is a great opportunity to learn from each other and grow professionally. Craft Conference invites world-class star speakers from diverse companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Slack who are experts in their area sharing their hands-on knowledge about how to become a better developer, the newest technologies, best practises and tools, the problem of scaling, building and managing a team to be the most efficient, overcoming the obstacles caused by COVID and many other interesting topics that are relevant to any company.
Even though there is a huge amount of material on this topic, the problem of maintainable, sustainable and successful software development is not yet solved. So it is important to have events dedicated to this topic, where people can learn about and collaborate on how to deal with the problem of building the right thing on the right way, and how to push for finding better solutions.
Craft Conference offers the community a holistic view as different fields of software engineering are interconnected and explicable when developers look at the big picture. Staying updated with the latest developments is critical, especially when it comes to software development. And one of the most efficient ways to keep learning is to attend conferences. Keeping in mind the unstable situation with pandemic, Craft Conference has decided to shift to virtual format this year, but with the help of technology, you can still get a lot of benefits from attending it, such as: professional development, exclusive speakers, cutting edge insights, networking, hands-on workshops, and uncover best practices to make your work life easier. Also, important advantage is that online edition is way cheaper, but the level of talks and line-up of speakers is still impressive.
