As we begin a brand new 12 months we’re reflecting on a number of the occasions from 2022, a kind of being Full Stack Europe in Antwerp, right here’s what they realized and why they consider attending conferences has big advantages for workers.

Each October (effectively with out COVID-19) Full Stack Europe takes place in Antwerp, Belgium bringing collectively a whole bunch of builders from all over the world. 

The occasion is made up of two full days of talks from a number of the main builders and engineers within the trade. 

This 12 months we despatched 3 of our very personal builders to seek out out as a lot info as they might about numerous totally different subjects from quantum computing to CSS. 

We’re dedicated to making sure our groups are in a position to continually develop their data and recognise that this isn’t at all times by way of finishing a web based course or watching a video on-line. 

So when Joel, our Full Stack Developer entered and gained 2 tickets by way of a twitter competition, we bought one other and despatched Joel, James, Senior UX Developer and Ben, Senior Developer on their method to their first ever Full Stack Europe. 

We spoke to them on their return and right here’s what they needed to say..

Which was your favorite discuss from the occasion?

James: “For me, my favorite discuss was on Day 1 from Belgian artist Dries Depoorter on Surveillance Artwork, Dying Telephones and Pretend Likes. It’s because it was participating, it was very humorous and creative. The mix of {hardware} and software program with the unique concepts made it extremely spectacular but in addition fairly scary because it highlighted prospects with trendy tech.”

Ben: “I agree with James, for me my favorite discuss was from Dries Depoorter. It was fascinating to find out about a number of the work he’s executed this 12 months.”

What have been your greatest takeaways from FSE?

James: “There’s numerous key takeaways I might checklist however to encapsulate them into one, it lets you try to open up your thoughts and contribute in the direction of being an excellent all spherical engineer moderately than only a succesful developer.”

James: “Yeah, I agree with Joel on that, this was a large one and I believe the change of surroundings and totally different tradition and environment added to it, we had numerous time for discussions to stream and primarily realised we’re all on the identical web page with numerous issues.

It additionally offers you an entire checklist of recent individuals to comply with on social media, individuals who you possibly can proceed to be taught from and construct connections with.”

Lastly, how does it make you are feeling that you simply’re in a position to attend these conferences by way of the enterprise?

All in all, it appears like our group had a good time at FSE, we’re wanting ahead to seeing how they’re in a position to implement what they realized inside the group and their common everyday.
