8 Reasons Why You Should Attend a YOW! Event

  1. Get a new perspective on your work 
  2. The relaxed setting at YOW! events provides the opportunity for you to meet and talk with world-renowned speakers face-to-face about your specific development challenges.

  3. Learn from authors and creators
  4. Many of the languages, practices and ideas that you use as a developer have been authored and created by the speakers at the conference. The speakers are all practitioners with many years of experience in the industry. Enjoy unbiased and technically rich talks

  5. Listen to unbiased vendor-independent talks
  6. YOW! is not aligned with any technology, practice, methodology or vendor. The invited speakers are chosen from a network of over 400 authors and experts by an international program committee. The focus is on craftsmanship rather than sales or product pitches.

  7. Return to the office with renewed energy and inspiration
  8. Working the daily grind of software development can be intense; requiring great adaptability to react to frequent changes in stakeholder needs and technologies. Being in a pro-active learning environment is a great way to get inspired.

  9. Connect with like-minded people
  10. YOW! events typically attract developers who are serious about staying informed about the latest techniques and technologies. The events provide a unique opportunity to make contacts, create strategic partnerships and network.

  11. Expand your view on what’s possible & be inspired in unexpected ways
  12. Many attendees have commented that they often learn more from speakers they don’t know much about at first. However, this provides an opportunity to discover new thought leaders to learn from and follow.

  13. Support your company’s commitment to learning
  14. Many companies recognise the need for ongoing learning to encourage innovation by providing training budgets. Get your company’s support to learn from the best.
