Gearing up for the summer? While for some people its time to hit the beach, to travel or to spend time with the family, for us its time to work, code and organize stuff!

We’re currently working behind the scenes on the third edition of Kings of Code, the gathering for developers, on Monday September 19th. The best developers will gather in Amsterdam to explore and discuss the latest trends, developments and best practices in development technologies. A ticket gives access to the Hack Battle in the weekend preceding the conference as well (September 17 – 18). Still very hush hush, but feel free to get on the list, or contact us with speaker ideas or sponsorship opportunities (email Sophie). More updates to come..
