On October 28, 2017 we hosted software engineers and UI / UX designers from around the world at SphereCon to network and learn best practices from our experts. This event took place at Interia’s conference hall in Kiev.
With Go and Ruby continuing to evolve, Sphere Software’s CEO Leon Ginsburg saw the need to share knowledge and support the developer community. This was the impetus for SphereCon. Contributing thought leadership to developer communities has been a part of Sphere’s mission since it was founded in 2005.
The event showcased Sphere’s engineers, who shared their expertise on building scalable software solutions in high-load, demanding environments. In addition, developers from leading companies like Gett also shared their best practices.
Garnering a large turnout of engineers looking to fine-tune their skillsets, SphereCon received coverage from major United States and Ukrainian publications including:
