Abstractions is a new conference that brings together everyone involved in modern software development — designers, developers, DevOps, and community leaders — to teach, learn, and connect with each other.
We've gathered a huge lineup of diverse speakers, from language creators to community builders to design innovators, and sought interesting and unique proposals from our peers in the industry.
Register now to join us for three days in August to expand your understanding of the world of modern software development, both inside and outside the confines of your chosen expertise.
Does your company or organization want to sell or recruit at Abstractions? Sponsorship is a great way to effectively attract customers and talent at reasonable costs. We have many customizable options, including a package that directly enables our scholarship program encouraging those who are underrepresented and those who otherwise would not be able to afford the conference experience in the software community to participate.
Abstractions looks at the software creation process from all angles. Covered topics include: remarkable Design, perspectives on Development, practical DevOps, and effective Community & Leadership. Here are just a few of our speakers.
