The requirements for server-side technologies changed a lot in recent years. The way we store and access data on the web leads to different requirements nowadays. New languages have evolved and scalability in architecture is needed more than ever. We invited industry-leading companies and top speakers to provide you with the best solutions for highly reliable and scalable backends. If you are challenged in one of these topics this should be the right track for you.
Microservices – API – Java – .NET – CMS/CMF – Node – PHP – Laravel – Symfony – Python – Cassandra – GoLang – Database – SQL – NoSQL – MongoDB
Digital transformation is no longer a niche phenomenon. It is everywhere. The new top discipline is not about managing technology or teams, but the managing of tech teams. We have seen a lot of companies introducing agile methodologies such as Scrum or Kanban.
Also coding culture and people management are playing a big role in the quality of code and efficiency of programmers.
To help them make the right decisions and position their company strategically right in the future we created a track dedicated to these topics.

What sounds like a technology from the future for most people, is already a normality. Virtual or Augmented Reality Interfaces will use new metaphors, with machine learning and artificial intelligence opening the doors to the unthinkable.
Large-scale data sets are not only used to extract useful patterns but also to feed machine-learning algorithms which solve our problems faster than in any other point in time. Chat-Bots are carrying out our conversations and infrastructure, platforms and services moved into the cloud. With the latest technologies we introduced a new virtual layer into our reality.

Graphical user interfaces are the main ingredient of visual communication with applications.
Trends come and go but user experience is here to stay. Of course this is not agnostic to the used technologies. We have a richer set of features in the field of HTML and CSS and even our protocols and file formats changed.
At the end of the day you have to answer one question: does the user understand what you want him to do?
UI – UX – React – Angular – RxJS – HTML5 – CSS3
The internet of things is fed by uncountable, ubiquitous sensors. Be it wearables, exoskeletons for industrial workers or autonomous machines – the number of robots and IoT devices is growing by the second. They feed the big data storages in the cloud with old and new protocols. Knowing the system means being able to shape the future. The line between human and machines gets thinner with each day. Someday this border between humans and machines will blur and the age of the cyborgs will start. Would you implant a sensor into your hand?

Mobile development has grown. No longer bound by the simple limits of the screen and driven by sensors and strong hardware, modern apps go beyond the thinkable. Moving between new ways in user experience and trusted methods with modern backends developers push mobile applications to the max. How far would you go to win the top position in the app store?

The requirements for today’s application cannot be met by yesterday’s technologies.
Reactive programming is all about non-blocking applications that are asynchronous and event-driven, and many big companies are currently in the process of switching to these technologies.
One key aspect of reactive applications is the switch from pull-based to push-based architecture which also leads to a major shift from an imperative to a declarative async composition of logic. This switch not only takes place in the front- but also in the backend.
This creates a responsive, resilient and elastic foundation for modern apps. How resilient are your apps?

From the cradle to the grave software needs attention. Quality does not only extend a software’s life but also a company’s. DevOp skills are needed everywhere, TDD is a default requirement and continuous integration become a must in the workflow. Several strategies can help you here: be it testing the right things and using proven methodologies, deploying in smart processes and having zero maintenance in your tool stack.
Product Development – Continuous Integration – Versioning – Scrum – Testing – DevOps – Scaling – Testdriven Development – Exploratory Testing – Selenium
One thing is clear: bad press is a thing you need to avoid. Security issues can kill enterprises in today’s world. The EU have issued their GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) making privacy an even bigger topic than it was.
In addition to the latter, the topics of privacy, net neutrality and decentralized web are receiving tremendous attention today and this has an important cause.
Software developers spend a lot of their time to secure software against several threats in the web and beyond – sometimes without luck. Does your company have enough knowledge to protect itself from these attack vectors? Are you able to deliver highly secure software and prove it to the customer?
