Workshop – IoT Data Analytics appliance for the EU energy market


Workshop – A peek at Clojure

We’re kicking off the third edition of DevTalks in Cluj. This year we have even bigger plans as we have extended our stages area as well as added new networking and fun areas for a greater event experience.

This year DevTalks brings together great community leaders and innovation. On the stages we will discuss about web,mobile, BigData,  cloud computing, DevOps, smart devices, machine learning, AI and more.

In addition to the 4 big stages we have also prepared 2 smaller stages and a variety of workshops so we can bring more interesting subjects on the plate.

Book the date in Cluj! On May 17th prepare for a great networking experience, a bunch of awesome speakers and many surprises from our partners, as we will take out new approaches in software development, highlighting the changes for this year.


Machine Intelligence, 4D printing, Quantum Computing, Smart Data Discovery,  IoT, Blockchain, and other innovative technologies that are shaping our future.


Discussing the 2017 top trends and technologies for web & mobile development: AI chatbots, Angular 2.4, hybrid apps, m-commerce, Rails 5  app streaming and many more.


Hadoop, MapReduce, HBase and HDFS are decreasing in popularity, that’s yesterday’s news. But which of the faster technologies – like real time fast! – will be the ones to replace them?


In the next few years professionals with a solid background in both IT development AND operations will be in high demand, so we want to prepare in advance. Topics like continuous delivery, continuous integration and continuous deployment will be a must for this stage.


Project management skills are a must in any organization, especially in the IT field. Whether you aspire to become a team leader or you want to start your own startup, we are sure you will have lots to learn from other IT professionals who have mastered this art.


Love it or hate it, but the truth is Java is everywhere, from desktop apps to website backend systems. So why not dedicate a whole track to it?
