1. Learn from the pros
STACK 2020 brings together more than 100 of the world’s leading technology experts to share their knowledge and insights. Some of the keynote speakers you will get to hear from include Mr Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution, researcher and author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Unicorn Project, and Mr Will Grannis, founder and leader of Google’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
Also gracing the event is Mr Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist of ThoughtWorks, who is also a renowned author, software consultant and highly regarded speaker at international conferences. He brings with him two decades of experience helping organisations utilise object technology for mission-critical information systems.
2. Ideate and innovate
No organisation has a monopoly on ideas. Given the rapid developments in the field of technology, being aware of some of the latest emerging ideas can be a boon for anyone working in tech. With more than 80 keynotes, talks, panels, workshops and on-demand videos covering topics on Cloud, Applications, Tech Culture and COVID-19 technologies at STACK 2020, you will be exposed to new concepts and novel ways of working that could help you level up professionally!
3. Network makes the dream work
As the largest government-led developers conference in Singapore, STACK 2020 will be a virtual meeting place for some 1,000 developers, data scientists, product managers, designers and technologists around the world. You will have ample opportunity to make connections and build up your professional network. You might just find the ideal mentor or discover a tech community to kickstart your next big project!
4. Gain hands-on experience
The best way to learn is by doing. At STACK 2020, you will find an array of hands-on workshops catering to individuals of various skill levels and interests. For example, join a coding dojo to work on a coding puzzle with other coders, or try your hand at enhancing mobile app security through reverse engineering.
Cybersecurity professionals looking to add to their skill arsenal may also wish to learn how to identify vulnerabilities in tech stack of an IoT ecosystem. Meanwhile, Docker and Kubernetes beginners can look forward to a step-by-step course on how to design, develop and deploy applications in Kubernetes. All workshops will take place on 1 December 2020.
5. Rekindle your passion
Sometimes, the plodding regularity of the office routine can make you forget why you chose your current job or career path. If that is the case, interacting with industry peers and seeing how they share their work with enthusiasm is one way to re-energise and recharge. You might just return to the office all fired up with fresh ideas and the confidence in 2021.
With these reasons, we are sure that you will find the event relevant, refreshing and insightful. Join us virtually at STACK 2020, wherever you are. Let’s get ready, get STACK and LEVEL UP!
