Droidcon 2013, London

There will be more to follow, with an exciting opportunity for iOS developers in the works, so be sure to keep an eye on our website for more info, or follow us on Twitter for updates!


The Functional Programming eXchange 2014

Functional Programming eXchange 14 Mar 2014

The Functional Programming eXchange returns to Skills Matter for it’s sixth year with the theme Data Science with Functional Programming. This is the ultimate chance to meet and learn from the leading experts in the Functional world. Meet other like minded developers, not necessarily just from your specific discipline, to share common challenges and discuss practical solutions.

Rather than focusing on the merits of one language above another, the eXchange gives a platform for cross functional solutions to software problems. There will be ample opportunity to brainstorm, code, and interact with 100+ functional developers on the day.

CukeUp! 2014

Cukeup! 10 Apr 2014

CukeUp! 2014 is a fast-paced conference inspired by and organised with Aslak Hellesøy, the creator of Cucumber BDD – who will also be this years’ keynote speaker. Together, we’ve been assembling the community since 2011 for this intense conference – 2014 will see it stretch to two days for the first time, which just proves its popularity!

This exciting event is based around tutorials on the first day, and 30 minute talks on the second day – you can look forward to hearing about all the latest developments and best practices in Cucumber, presented by leading experts.

DDD eXchange 20 June 2014

At the DDD eXchange 2014 you’ll discover all the newest innovations in Domain-Driven Design and get the chance to learn and share solutions and new ideas! This eXchange brings together the Domain Driven Design community with the experts who lead it for a day of networking, sharing new ideas, creating partnerships, and learning from the best and brightest in the field.

Each year, with the blessing of Eric Evans (the father of Domain-Driven Design) we welcome an array of high-profile speakers to explore and share new thoughts about DDD with grass-roots designers, programmers, and architects.
