Conference: Trivento Indian Summer Camp

Amersfoort | October 6, 2017

Trivento Indian Summer Camp

When: October 6, 2017
Where: Amersfoort, The Netherlands

Hello Klaus, At the Scaladays in Copenhagen I briefly talked to you about our annual mini developers conference. This year we organize the event on October 6th at our office in Amersfoort. In a program starting at around 12:00 and ending at around 19:00 we usually have a few keynotes and in between parallel tech tracks. The attendees are for most dutch developers/architects interesting in new technology (aiming at 100). This years overall theme will be 'the next stack' a reflection of todays hot technology and hence the tech Trivento embraces. It is a good tradition to give our partners the opportunity to take a keynote slot (or parallel track if that's more convenient). In the past several Lightbenders took the stage and it would be great if this year Lightbend can send again a great public speaker and audience engager. As we are truly excited about Fast Data and investing in it (both tech and commercial) it will be obvious that this topic should be on the program. Can you help us with a great keynote speaker? Dean would be awesome. Of course we will cover the costs for travel & accommodation. Oh and you can ask Ygor about our past events to give some idea.
