A practical developer conference about scalable software

28 October 2014

Span is a practical developer conference about creating scalable systems. Each talk will focus either on sharing practical knowledge that you can put into action or will tell a story of past-mistakes and how you can avoid them. You won't find a sales-pitch masquerading as a talk. And as much as we love non-developers, we won't make you listen to a philosopher or marketer give you tips on how to code.

Topics you can expect to see on the programme include high availability, functional programming, distributed sytems, APIs and NoSQL, all with a no-bullshit promise.
