Wat we doen

Since the founding of ITNEXT in January 2017, many remarkable and inspiring meetups took place that covered a wide range of topics. Many international authors joined our community and we published 1500+ articles. And we ended the year ended with a very crowded and well-received ITNEXT Summit 2017. As the result, our audience expanded significantly.

In 2018, we are determined to take ITNEXT to the next level! Therefore, our focus will be on development & maintenance of awesome software solutions (including infrastructure) using OutSystems, next-gen Frontend, Backend Development, Engineering and Network & Security. This decision is based on the market analysis by LINKIT, an IT-knowledge driven company.

With our knowledge, we try our best to provide you the most relevant content within these scopes due best practices, high-level presentations, hands-on interactive workshops, as well as panel discussions with experts. We do our best to assist you in your personal development, knowledge expansion and last but not least: having FUN!

ITNEXT is a community platform for data scientists, machine learning specialists, developers, software engineers, system engineers and IT Managers to share knowledge, connect, collaborate & learn. We keep an eye on the future to implement what is NEXT! It’s a place to write, discuss and get feedback from articles (www.itnext.io). A place to speak at our monthly meetups and annual conference ( http://www.meetup.com/itnext and www.itnextsummit.com). A place to disagree and acknowledge where you can improve. A place to grow, driven by you, driven by Dev/IT community.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at our events!
