ABOUT

Charge Your Knowledge

2021 marked the year that JDriven turned 10 years old. We will celebrate this based on one of our core values: sharing. At JDriven, the passion for open source and technology is in our DNA. For a decade we have been promoting a TechCulture in which innovation and knowledge sharing are central.

 

What can I expect?

Fort X - Charge your knowledge is a conference for and by techies, for a smaller audience with appealing speakers in all tracks. Technical depth and interaction with the speakers and other guests will be the focus of this conference.

 

In three tracks, the themes JVM, Web, Cloud, Architecture, Future, People / Methodology, Culture & Fun will be discussed extensively.

Of course we reflect on 10 years of JDriven, but especially in the form of sharing knowledge with our beautiful community. ​

 

Where and when?

On June 30, 2022 we will organize our conference at Fort de Batterijen in Nieuwegein. By organizing this event during the summer, at a venue with plenty of outdoor space, we maximize our chances of organizing an event without social distancing measures.
