We are launching "Change"


This autumn, KING ICT is launching the first open technical conference focusing on the development of enterprise solutions. This one-day event will be held on October 15th in the conference rooms of the Kraš chocolate factory in Zagreb.  Over 300 Croatian and regional participants from the ICT sector are  expected to gather for the latest news and hands-on experience provided by experts working in modern bleeding-edge software development.
 
"What makes this conference different from other similar IT conferences is the emphasis it places on the part of the IT scene that makes up its foundation – the development of enterprise solutions. The conference is an open-type one. Participants will enjoy discussing the latest innovations in the industry and learn more on what the most successful names of our scene think the future will look like. With a careful selection of lectures for the "first edition" of our conference, we want to show that "local" engineers can do great things and that global success is not reserved only for those across the pond. I see the conference as an ideal opportunity to find out more about the best practices and innovative ideas on .NET, while learning about performance improvements in Java-environment enterprise applications. Working in various development environments is so similar that many concepts such as micro-services, continuous delivery practices and Agile methodologies - are universal ” said Roko Roić, Director of Conference Content for the Change Conference.

The Change Conference is primarily designed for software developers and IT experts, regardless of the technology they use, and will focus on current issues in the development of enterprise software.


“With more than 18 years of experience in the regional market, KING ICT is a leading systems integrator.  Therefore, organizing this type of conference was a natural extension of our commitment to share the knowledge of developing advanced business solutions and extensive experience of our consultants and partners with the community. This one-day conference is designed to encourage a focused debate on issues that are relevant in today's enterprise industry, as well as offer opportunities for networking and partnership,” Roko Roić added.
