YOW! December is going ONLINE for 2020! Watch great talks online from the comfort of your laptop, be it at home or at work. Talks will be delivered live and after each session, we’ll head over to the conference Slack workspace where you can participate in an interactive Q&A with the speaker, chat about the last talk, visit our partner channels or network in the #hallway-track.

At YOW!, leading software industry experts from all over the world, handpicked by our program committee, come together for two days to provide amazing networking and learning opportunities. Their talks are designed to bring you the latest practices as well as future directions in software development and delivery. Meet your favourite authors and bloggers. Sign up for a workshop for an intense learning experience. Network with people who truly care about delivering great software.

Our goal, as always, is to provide you access to the cutting edge in software technology, practices, and tools to help you whatever your role as a software professional… so even if we can’t all get together face to face, you can still network, meet the experts and hone your skills all in one event!
