Further training in software skills, expert discussions and exchange with fellow developers – all in one place.
Those who earn their money with software development attend Developer Week (DWX), one of the largest independent developer conferences in Europe. More than 250 Sessions, Workshops and DevSessions by more than 200 experts provide a wealth of knowledge. Open questions can be clarified in direct discussions with the speakers.
There will also be a trade fair with numerous exhibitors who will present their products and services to the participants. In 2020, DWX will again take place in Nuremberg – and will be offered as a complete remote event for the first time.

“Reflecting on two decades of .NET”
Speaker: Jon Skeet, Google
.NET was announced in July 2000, at PDC. Twenty years is a very long time in tech. Remember when .NET was Windows-only? Remember C# before generics? Remember when we didn’t even have smart phones, let alone the ability to run cross-platform apps transpiled to web assembly? Come with me on a walk down memory lane as we look at the highlights of the evolution of both C# and .NET – as well as the broader industry.

“Lessons Learned Building a Scalable Cloud Infrastructure”
Speaker: Melanie Cebula, airbnb
In recent years there has been an unprecedented amount of innovation and development in the Cloud infrastructure space. But all of these options and flexibility come at a cost— high complexity and overhead. If you are unsure how to manage all of this infrastructure, or even where to start, you are not alone! In this talk, we will provide practical examples of what to do (and what not to do!) based on our experience building a modern Services-Oriented Architecture on top of Cloud Native technologies.

“Human-Centered AI: Why I explain AI to my mother”
Speaker: Steven Mc Auley, Stanford University
Is it right that your kid is doing homework with Alexa’s help? AI not only sneaks into our everyday life, but also into the everyday life of the new generations. Whether this is a good or bad thing is something that the majority of society is unable to evaluate because they lack basic knowledge in the area of data collection and data processing.
However, it is precisely this part of society that we need to collectively build fair AI-driven products and services. Summarized as human-centered AI. AI creates more advantages than disadvantages, if we want it to.
It is our responsibility as a tech industry to explain AI technologies in a way that all parts of society want to participate.
This lecture shows why the problem is so big, how helpful AI is and what we can do now.
