YOW! Software Developer Conference is Back
After ongoing discussions with local developer communities, in particular Agile SG, YOW! Conference brought their signature independent event to Singapore for the first time in 2017. Local developers had the unique opportunity to hear and meet international and local experts as well as network with their peers. 15 international speakers inspired our attendees. Following the success of last year's event, YOW! is back in 2018 with another line up of impressive international speakers.
Last year YOW! also ran a series of smaller events in Singapore which all have been either sold out or close to capacity. You can expect more YOW! Nights and YOW! Workshops in 2018.
Support from Singapore Agile Usergroup
The YOW! Singapore conference has been made possible through the strong support and local knowledge of the Agile SG Usergroup headed by Stanly Lau and Co-Organizer Sergey Shishkin. They pointed out "YOW! is an excellent fit in Singapore. We saw very positive reception for all YOW! events organized in Singapore. There is a large potential to engage more local tech-stack communities."
Stanly Lau explained: "YOW! founder Dave Thomas is sincere and resourceful, which makes collaboration with him a pleasure. Having experienced YOW! Brisbane in 2015, I believe YOW! Singapore can increase awareness and understanding of dealing with engineering challenges".
Mr Shishkin also added: "Singapore tech community is relatively small and willing to share their free time. It's good to have a dedicated entity that can support local community organizers providing international speakers, professional planning and marketing".
"We believe that YOW! will help compliment the tech industry in Singapore with modern ideas from around the world, sparkle and give international exposure to local experts," he said.
