Great news! The final preparations for I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016 program are done!

Our team of reviewers finished the draft program. 100 proposals, from speakers from 20 countries, were received to the Call for Speakers. We are looking forward to let you know which of them will make it to the final program.

As a sneak peak, we can tell you that lots of live coding and exciting talks & workshops are in row. As we are finishing up the details about the 4th edition of I T.A.K.E Unconference, we invite you to have a look at the previous editions.

Here it is a selection of our favorite highlights:

The participants, passionated coders, competed with their peers, taking a set of challenges that put their skills to the test. Gadgets like a drone or an iPad were the rewards for the winners.

 

#6

Women speakers, as well as academic speakers enriched the I T.A.K.E Unconference participants’ experience with valuable insights and stories. Additionally, the women in IT campaign brought into the audience’s attention some of the most amazing ladies who made a contribution to the development of the tech field.

Microservices Architecture by James Lewis and Martin Fowler

James Lewis, keynote at I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2015, has a valuable contribution on Microservices Architecture.

Sneak peak:

In short, the microservice architectural style [1] is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an HTTP resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies.

If interested in this topic, read the full contribution, jointly created with Martin Fowler.

Join I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2015 to hear more in his talk: Microservices – Systems That Are #neverdone.

Meet the speakers – Part I. Registration on!

Work is already well underway for next year’s unconference. Read on to learn more about what happens when, the confirmed keynote, call for speakers and new website.

Timeline for 2014

We’ve created the first iteration of the plan for this year. In case you were wondering, here are the key milestones between now and the end of 2014:

  • Sep 03: New website goes live
  • Sep 03: Call for papers opened
  • Nov 03: Registrations opened
  • Nov 10: Program announced

Confirmed keynote

As we announced in May, we already have confirmed one of the keynote speakers for 2015. Simon Brown is a renowned architect and trainer on agile architecture and author of Software Architecture for Developers. With a schedule as busy as his, we’re sure glad it matched our dates for next year’s I T.A.K.E Unconference.

Call for speakers open

We have opened the call for speakers. For next year we decided to keep the topics that you hold dear: architecture, design principles, TDD etc. and also add some new areas that are becoming more and more popular these days: mobile, big data, scaling architecture etc. Visit the page to learn more.

If you know somebody that has something valuable to share with our audience, we’d appreciate it if you shared the link for the call page.

New website

We hope you enjoy the new website we’ve created. Based on your feedback during the past two years, we decided to come up with a new design that is accessible on all mobile devices. We’d like to thank our partners at Gorilla Studio for their effort and creativity with the new design.

We’re really excited for next year’s edition! So far things look great and we are committed to delivering the best edition yet to all our attendees. See you there?
