WROC# 2017 conference in Wroclaw

Published on 05 March 2017

WROC# strikes again!

Another great IT conference and second one happening in Wroclaw, Poland. Cool :) The organizers surprised us again few times :)

pre-WROC

But before WROC#, we as WrocNET, had a pre-WROC# event. The main topic was multithreading with Marcin Dudek - Open the Lock and Maciej Aniserowicz - Testing multithreading scenarios in .NET. 98 developers attended, which is pretty good number. After the official session we had afterparty sponsored by PGS in CyyberMachina. I really enjoyed it.

Conference!

Ahh, I hate describing sessions... sooo => SKIP :) I will just mention one. Session "Go hack yourself...or someone else will" was something fairly unique. Frans described how to earn money with bug-boundary programs. Here is a list of companies willing to pay for founded bugs.

Conference add-ons

  • Competition games - there were at least 2 computer games written by Objectivity employees. One even used external devices. Nice.
  • Wroclaw promotion corner - good that Objectivity tries to promote also local culture. I really appreciate that :)
  • VR Corner with Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus VR etc. - this was very occupied place. When I was leaving the conference people were still playing there....
  • Tesla Model S - everyone could jump in and have a look. I think competition winners could ride it.
  • Wrocsharpowe beer - every year taste better. This is a symbol :)

Community

I meet many people. Au usual, I guess.

Valuable attendees - this is what makes every single conference fly!

Summary

I'm sad that WROC# 2017 is over. It was a really nice conference where I meed many friends and learned something new. Thank you Objectivity!

Observation

I need to attend a conference where I don't know anybody. That could be a really nice experience.
