ITDevCon 2012 – RECAP

Last friday is just ended the 4th edition of ITDevCon. This conference is, now, the biggest Delphi conference in Europe, in terms of speakers, speeches and topics… no doubt!

Some numbers:

  • 2 days
  • 31 speeches
  • 15 speakers from all over the world (Italy, USA, Norway, Slovenia, Benelux)
  • 70 attendees c.a. from all over the world (Italy, Germany, Russia etc)
  • 32 prizes offered by our (beloved) sponsors. No one of the attendee went back home without some prize won. In many cases the price of the prize has been even bigger than the price of the ticket!

Some speakers, attendees and other people, have already blogged about the conference and many others have talked about it on twitter and facebook. There’s been a great partecipation… before, during and after the conference.
