Dear reader,

The international software development conference GOTO, designed for software developers, IT architects and project managers was back on June 18th-20th at the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam. Trifork, GOTO Academy and Axon had each a stand there.

Events & Training

GOTO Amsterdam – was on 18,19,20 June

This year again the conference was a great success, with a lot of interesting talks and key learnings. We had a stand in the main exhibition hall and we raffled anelasticsearch workshop, a training seat to choose among all trainings available at GOTO Academy, one Axon immersion training and finally one health check service.


Did you miss GOTO and you want to catch up? Trifork software developers also attended the conference as delegates, read their feedback on our blog: GOTO Amsterdam 2014.

Meetup with Docker – was on July 10th

On July 10th, we held a Docker MeetUp at our office on the theme “Clouds and Crowds” – and how to service them. We had three great speakers and talks.

Tim Nolet,, showed us how he does service lookup for continuous delivery practices with Docker. Tim demonstrated microservices running inside containers and how they can be discovered and delivered to “the world”.

From IBM’s BlueMix team we had Michel Splint. Michel’s talk, entitled “Bluemix – Developing in the Cloud, For the Cloud, With the Crowd”, showed the key features of BlueMix and explained how it differs from other Clouds.

Finally we listened to Pini Rznik, Ugly Duckling’swho fresh from his European speaking tour, spoke about Microservices, the future as he sees it, and how Microservices and Docker containers will be the next step towards closing the development loop.
