Event description


What is XConf?

No fluff. No filler. Just real tech.

XConf is created by technologists, for technologists, who care deeply about the craft of software and its ability to make the world a better place.

Now in its 5th year, ThoughtWorks XConf will be hosted across the UK, Germany and Spain.

Join us as we welcome Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO, ThoughtWorks to the stage as our keynote speaker!

At XConf you will:

  • Discover emerging technologies and practices, use cases, and real stories

  • Learn how to implement new technologies where you work and have greater impact

  • Hear from people who broke through seemingly insurmountable resistance to change

  • Talk with other interesting and ambitious technologists

  • Let go of previously-held assumptions and gain new perspectives

This one-day, two-track event gives you in direct access to a diverse range of ThoughtWorks senior technologists working on our clients’ most complex challenges.

Seating is limited to 100 guests per location, so register today. We hope to see you there!

“It’s a really interesting conference...loads of different talks about what is modern in technology what are the things to do. Hearing about those from great speakers is really good!" - Tim, XConf attendee, 2017
