The dates for GOTO Amsterdam 2014 have been set: June 19 and 20! Registration has already started and the first early bird discount ends at December 11. Register here to make sure your spot is reserved!

But in case you still need convincing that the GOTO conferences are the best in town, I invite you to attend one of our FREE GOTO Nights and see for yourself.

For October we have two very interesting nights planned.

The first one is a single session night, held upcoming Friday (Oct. 4) at the Trifork Amsterdam office and starting at 18.00. The speaker is Jez Humble, author of Continuous Delivery (read Martin Fowlers take on the book) and currently working at ThoughtWorks. His presentation will be about how to innovate inside large organisations, using Lean principles. A must for all of you IT managers that want to stimulate intrapreneurship within your organisation.

The second night will be held on a Monday evening (Oct. 14) starting at 18.00 at the Trifork Amsterdam office. This time the first session will be by Bas van Ooyen, who is a data scientist at Owlin, where he does real-time news analytics. His session will be specifically on Machine translation and the state of affairs in that respect. Next up for this GOTO Night is Michael T. Nygard, author of various books, including Release It!. During his session Five Years of DevOps: Where are we now? Michael will shed some light on the world of DevOps, “what’s the old-but-good, and where we still need to advance”.

No need to worry about your appetite, we will serve pizza’s and beers.

Sign up now for these GOTO Nights to reserve your seat! Hope to see you there!
