Booster 2013

A software conference for the whole team

13 15 March 2013

The Booster conference is an IT conference for the whole development team. Squeezed in between the mountains of western Norway and the fjords, the location provides for a unique experience.

Booster is a software conference aimed at developers, project managers/scrum masters, architects, UX people, testers, test managers and security professionals.

We don’t do the traditional hour-long lectures. Instead we have the bite-sized wisdom of lightning talks and the immersion of tutorials, making you come back from the conference with real knowledge you can use.

Meeting other people is a large part of what makes a conference worth attending. At Booster we want to make it easy to chat with other participants and speakers. That’s why we have long breaks, provide excellent coffee and good food, and a conference dinner included in the price. We also invite local user communities to take part in the conference. Speakers are encouraged to hang around during breaks, and participate at the conference dinner and community events.

Why is the Booster conference different?
* We're in Bergen, the most beautiful city in Norway.
* We believe that lack of communication is one of the industry's biggest problems. We aim to gather developers, project managers/scrum masters, architects, UX people, testers, test managers and security professionals in one conference.
* We don't have any hour-long talks. Instead we have the bite-sized wisdom of lightning talks and the immersion of tutorials, making you come back from the conference with real knowledge you can use.
* We care about the social aspects, too. The most interesting parts of a conference often happen in the breaks. That's why we have top notch food, long breaks, a conference dinner included in the price, a high speaker-participant ratio and friendly speakers that are happy to talk with the participants.
