Codemotion Milan 2017 – the first sold out event in the history of Codemotion!
Posted on 11, 17, 2017
This very special edition of Codemotion Milan took place on November 10th-11th in a stunning industrial venue called BASE.
This year we had a double occasion to celebrate! We didn’t only celebrate the fifth birthday of the conference in the capital of Lombardy but we also celebrated the new location of the event.
2300 attendees, 110 Speakers, 80 tech communities, 53 exhibitors
These numbers overwhelmed everyone, including us! The Special Edition of Codemotion Milan was the biggest tech conference organized by Codemotion so far! For the very first time in the conference’s history, the tickets for the event were sold out two weeks before the conference! Amazing, right?
The event was opened with a keynote entitled “Developers’ role in building community and changing the world for the better” given by Julien Decot (Facebook). This keynote was followed by those delivered by Susie Wee (Cisco Systems), Mattia Poretti (Google) and Salvatore Sanfilippo (Redis Labs). Meanwhile, the second day was opened by the great keynotes of Lorna Mitchell (IBM) and Jessica Rose (FutureLearn). It was Brent Beer from Github who closed this Special Edition of Codemotion Milan.
Facebook, Docker, Netflix, Stack Overflow and more…
The conference staged the best Speakers from the most important international tech companies such as Facebook, Stack Overflow, Docker, NVidia, Google, IBM, Cisco. For the very first time we hosted a Speaker from… Netflix!
The second CTO Meeting!
After the huge success of the first CTO Meeting that took place during the conference in Rome, Codemotion decided to organize the second meeting in Italy dedicated to CTOs, CIOs and IT Managers. The CTO Meeting was hosted during the first day of the conference and its main objective was to prompt a moment to share the best practices and challenges related to Digital Transformation across different realities: companies, startups and institutions.
On the first day of the conference, the attendees had at their disposal the experts from CartaSi that helped them discover the world of online payment. The codelab entitled: “Create your e-commerce with XPay by CartaSi!” was addressed mainly to web developers, APP developers, UX designers and anyone interested in e-commerce.
VR / GAME DEVS SHOWCASE
Who said that the conference is only about the talks? As usual, at this Special Edition of Codemotion Milan we hosted the best showcase around: GameDevs and VR exhibitors gathered together in an incredible area: new(Game).
Codemotion Milan is over… what’s next?
Certainly, this edition of Codemotion will become history but slowly, slowly we’re getting ready for Codemotion Rome and Codemotion Amsterdam! Join us at the next conference!
