This is the event with the highest women in tech attendance seen in past 16 years.

Leslie Hawthorne – Keynoter

Over 570 attendees, about one-third of women attendees, 4 rocking keynoters, 60 speakers from China to the US, about 30 among sponsors, tech-communities, and partners.

Not bad at all for the very first edition of Codemotion Amsterdam!

Codemotion Amsterdam took place on May 11th and 12th in the breathtaking location of Kromhouthal – Amsterdam Noord.

The event was keynoted on the first day by Bruce Lawson, Open Web Standards Advocate for Opera, holding the keynote about the Web on the perspective of international challenges, and Leslie Hawthorn Board Member at Open Source Initiative, talking about Communities.

The second day opened with the Hangover Keynote from the lovely Jessica Rose, talking about the cost of expertise, and was closed by an amazing session from Avinash Changa – Ceo e Founder of WeMakeVR, introducing Virtual Reality; Past, Present and Future.

Across the two days, 60 speakers gave over 70 hours of sessions on 5 parallel stages, talking about Languages Mobile Security Big Data DevOps Front-end Back-end Methodologies Inspirational Design & UX Cloud/Architectures.

Especially the mixture of the audience ranging from excellent and experienced developers to rookies and simply tech enthusiasts establishes an unique atmosphere where attendees and speakers can come together, exchange knowledge and also ask questions, with our funny speaker box – check the pics to see what we are talking about!

Thanks to all of you who have welcomed us with a great enthusiasm, thanks to the passion for the code you have shared with us!

Codemotion Amsterdam will be back next year!
