Three Tracks, 15 Talks, 1 Keynote

Accento will have about 15 talks, split across three tracks:

  • talks on Java and the JVM dive deep into our favorite backend platform, improving your understanding of essential tools and processes
  • no backend without frontend — the JavaScript / web dev track focuses on making your user interface more resilient, have more performance, look nicer, and be all around even better to maintain and use
  • then we'll look into operations — think continuous delivery, Docker, cloud, etc.

Here's a selection of what you can expect:

Three Trainings

Want to dive deeper into a topic? We're organizing three one-day trainings with industry experts who will improve your skills and make you more effective at your daily work:

As you can see, we're still working on one of them. 😃

Pineapple Party

No conference without afterparty: We're looking forward to chill out with you and enjoy tasty food, cool drinks, and good music. After a day full of learning, you definitely deserve this.

COVID-19 — Offline or Online?

Honestly, we wanted to do both, but it turns out that live streaming a conference is more challenging than we expected and we're still too small for that. Let's cross fingers for 2022.

So for September 2021, we're going with offline if possible, online if necessary. And after a year of remote events, we can't wait to see you in person! Here's the plan for that:

  • regular-prized birdy bird tickets from May to mid September
  • deadline for lightning talk proposals is end of July
  • complete and detailed schedule published in August
  • more expensive late bird tickets in the last week (don't buy these, get your ticket earlier!)

Of course, nobody knows whether in-person conferences will actually work out in September, so we have a Plan B: If push comes to shove, we'll do an online event like last year (on September 28th). That's not everybody's cup of tea, though, so we'll give you the choice between a full refund or a ticket for the online event (which includes a partial refund as online will be cheaper than offline). We'll make the decision whether to go online in mid August (at the latest).
