Goto Amsterdam

This year we have something special: The Lightning talks track. Why do we want to do that? We see the knowledge economy trending strong through the meetups on meetup.com (a.o.) and we want to help this trend grow. Sharing knowledge, idea’s and your passion is something which benefits us all. We acknowledge the many talented and upcoming speakers we have (in Holland) and we want to give them the opportunity to show themselves on a larger stage. It might very well be the case that the these upcoming speakers in our track will be the next and most sought speakers at the global conferences.

GOTO Amsterdam: the Scrum track

Goto Amsterdam

A conference is usually about new and exciting stuff and Scrum clearly isn’t new. Scrum is nowadays also adopted across all industries and I personally do not know one software developer who wasn’t part of a Scrum project yet. So, it’s not exciting either. Why the heck have then a Scrum track and even two keynotes about Scrum and Agile Software Development?

GOTO Amsterdam: The disruption track

Goto Amsterdam

 

It must have been somewhere in 2004 when I listened to a single podcast every day for more than a week. Each day when commuting to work and back it was the podcast called “Capturing the Upside” by Clayton Christensen. I was so impressed by the amount of insights and knowledge shared in this podcast that I bought his first two books immediately. It was Clayton Christensen who coined the theory of Disruptive innovation.  When you read Eric Ries his book on Lean Startup you can recognize this movement leverages the Disruptive Innovation theory: e.g. initial “crappy” products(mvp) enter a small part of the incumbents market and not considered/recognized a threat.

GOTO Amsterdam: The drones track

Shaping a new market

This year is the first time at any GOTO conference there is a track all about Drones. Why should we do that? Why is it important and more specific; why could it be relevant for the leaders in the dutch software development market?

Deloitte states that in 2015 the base of active drones exceeds 1 million. Their focus is more on the consumer/pro-sumer side of the story though.

Lets look into some predictions on market size:

Market research estimates the global UAV market is now about $15 billion this year, with growth to up to $20 billion annually by 2020. Part of the reason for the growth is the FAA is opening up air space to commercial activities.

More and more enterprises start using the data they gather. Besides the Big data and Data science, there is a 3rd taste: search. Since January of this year, 1 search technology (stack) came up on top and since then is the number 1 choice when it comes to search: elastic search.

AngularJS: King of the castle

webdevelopmentTrends

We looked at the web development corner and saw the big 3 technologies; HTML, Javascript and CSS all loosing interest. Frameworks, on the other hand, are gaining more and more attention from the community. These days there is one framework that stands out from the rest: AngularJS.

Big hypes, clear trends and micro services

aFewTrends

When we started discussing the tracks for GOTO Amsterdam in november 2014, we took Gartners Hype cycle and used it to plot technologies we had on our radar. It sort of looked like the picture found above. We see Microservices as a very interesting topic. It was Martin Fowler and James Lewis who raised more awareness in this article.

GOTO Amsterdam 2015: The Docker track

Goto Amsterdam

GOTO Amsterdam 2015 holds the promise to be a unique experience. We looked at the global and local trends, we listen to the communities and we learn from the local heroes who we consider experts on a specific subject. We’ve asked these local heroes to be our trackhosts and help shape our tracks. They know who give the best talks. They know what are the most important topics. They know what the questions are, our audience will ask themselves during the projects.

Their task was not simple though. We’ve asked them to shape their track so awesome, they couldn’t stop talking about it. In this first article Pini Reznik, our trackhost for the Docker track, explains why the docker track is that awesome!

Bridging the Gap: An Interview with Chicago User Group Leaders

It’s no secret that Chicago is an incredible city with a vibrant history, passionate sports fans, and very cold weather. However, what many people are starting to realize is that Chicago is also an up-and-coming home for the Tech Industry: with companies like 1871 and WeWork serving as incubators for newly hatched start-ups, the space is ripe with young companies and skilled developers. So the question has to be asked, who is keeping this rapidly developing community together?
