SoCraTes Open Space: Antwerp!
This is our software craftsmanship open space Antwerp to discuss software, technology, practices, methods or whatever else you feel like. If you're using some new technology you think others would be interested in, if you've got a design or some code you'd like to discuss, if you'd like to discuss a specific practice, a problem you are having at work or you'd simply like to see what others have got to say - come along and join in the debate. How does it work? We ask people to suggest topics for the discussion. After the topics are suggested, we put up a market place for the rest of the evening, running several 30 minute sessions in parallel so that everyone can choose which session they want to participate in. You have full control of what you want to discuss with the group. This is an informal session, you don't need any particular experience and you don't need to have suggestions for topics - just bring yourself, an open mind and your opinions. The first 15-20 minutes will be devoted to lightning talks. So if you've got a cool demo, some new technology or just something you think the group might find interesting, controversial or just plain funny, bring it along and share with the group! Don't worry if you've never given a lightning talk before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment. We'll have a projector and a whiteboard and all talks are restricted to no more than five minutes. There will be food and drinks sponsored by our host Axxes -

What we're about

This community is a breeding ground for lots of cool events involving software engineering. It is open to all people who are passionate about development and strongly believe in mastering the craft of software. Your experience level can be that of a level 1 front end ninja to that of a level 80 embedded software magician. Everybody who believes their craft is something to be proud of and something worth mastering and sharing is welcome to join our ranks.

These are some of the basic principles we believe in as software crafters:

Not only working software, but also well-crafted software
Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value
Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals
Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

This community is fully (programming) language agnostic and will hosts events in whatever (programming) language is relevant for the people joining the event. In the past this has mostly happened in English and Dutch.
