Tech conferences in Poland are becoming more popular every single year. Great organization, exemplary event management, high expertise of the speakers and the effective pre-event promotion. In this case tech conferences in Poland stand in a one row with the well-known European events. Today I’m gonna present you a list of 7 tech conferences that, in my opinion, are worth to attend in the 1st half of 2017.

Probably one of the most topic-focused conference in the IT industry. The organizers chose the path of purely technical talks. That’s why they decided to accept the limited number of sponsors who could select or curate the talks. Big Data Tech Warsaw is a one-day conference assisted by 50 data-driven practitioners, including real pioneers of Big Data working at Facebook, Uber, Alibaba, Spotify or Skyscanner. This year the conference is focused on analysis, scalability, storage and search. There will be plenary session with the best keynotes and 4 theme paths cover the most important aspects of Big Data like: Operations & Deployment, Hadoop Application Development, Analytics & Data Science and Real-Time Processing. The conference is a great source of Big Data technical and practical use. See the highlights of the last year Big Data Tech Summit that achieved a great success.

Place: Krakow, Wroclaw, Warsaw (in order)
Completely newbie on the list of tech conferences in Poland. The first edition of Code Europe took place at the end of last year in two polish cities ie. Warsaw and Krakow. Almost 9 000 people have registered to participate in the event. Turnout was about 70% which gives an extraordinary number of more than 6 000 participants within 3 days. That’s impressive. This year’s spring edition will be held in 3 cities ie. Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. The main themes of the conference are Backend/Frontend, Mobile and Big Data. Everyone will find something for himself. Code Europe keynote speakers are the experts working for PayPal, Unicorn, Spotify or Detectify who will cover 150 workshops and lectures related to 40 technologies. The conference is connected with IT Career Fairs. Special chill-out zone creates the possibility of networking and relaxing between lectures.

More than 5000 participants and thousands of developers, executives, entrepreneurs, startuppers and innovation leaders among them. As a result, we receive the biggest tech conference in Central-Eastern Europe. InfoShare is a three-day conference that classically begins with Before Party a one day before the conference and ends with Closing Party in the evening of the last day. Seems like the organizers take a very good care of networking side of the conference. The last year agenda was divided into lectures and workshops running simultaneously at the same time. Creation of dedicated stages (Inspire, Tech, Startup) make it easier for participants to choose the appropriate lectures. Moreover, startup owners can count on the support of mentors and inventors in the Startup Zone.
We had the pleasure to participate in the last two editions of InfoShare. From our perspective, the event creates the best possibilities to establish new business relationships. In addition, the conference is very well-organized in all aspects. We hope to see you at InfoShare 2017 that we’re going to consequently take part in again this year 🙂
Date: June 7-9, 2017
