2017 is already almost over and we need to schedule our priorities for 2018 conferences. When I attended to my first E2EVC a couple of years ago in Brussel (in June 2014), I didn’t realize that this will change my, at least professional, life! I discovered a great bunch of guys and I quickly find out that becoming independent was the way to go for me! Since Brussels, I’ve attended at least 2 events per year in the following cities:
- Barcelona (2014 as a Presenter)
- Berlin (2015 as a Presenter)
- Lisbon (2015 as a Presenter)
- Dublin (2016 as a Presenter)
- Rome (2016 as a Presenter)
- Sydney (2017 as a Presenter)
- Tokyo (2017 as a Presenter)
- Anaheim (2017)
- Prague (2017 as a Presenter)
- Barcelona (2017)
More than a simple IT conference, the main goal of this event is networking with peers from every single part of the world. As a consultant, it allows me to know where the business is going in other geos and met a lot of friends. In terms of content, this is the most technical and high-level presentation I ever found in a conference. Compared to the vendors conferences, there is no filter and you can find real live feedbacks.
Before being a CTP, E2EVC was the only event where I’ve been able to exchange with such a great people as Remko, Ruben, Carl, Bas, Helge, Shawn, Esther, Geert and so many others… It’s also in this conference where I have made my first presentation in English back in 2014 in front of a bunch of CTPs as audience! Alex is giving a chance to everyone to present as there is no call for paper and just a “Hey Alex, reserve me a slot!” process.
If you need to choose between different events for the next year, I way recommend to attend, at least, to one of the next editions:
- Cape Town (April 12-13rd 2018)
- Amsterdam (June 8-10th 2018)
If you are in the US, New York is planned on July 19-20 and then we should be in Athens later in October 2018.

Thanks Alex for the organization of all these events, you are a real community guy!
