Every year, we change the theme of the conference. It forces us to rethink the conference from scratch, from the design of the website, to the topics we choose to cover, finding new speakers and helping us looking at what we are doing from an other perspective.
2017, year of the NEXT GEN
The age of separating traditional and technology industries is over. Instead, we have reached the era when every company is becoming a software company at its core.
Data, IoT, and software are replacing industrialisation as the driving force behind innovation and productivity. Given the current pace of this mutation, developers’ education, work habits, tools, communication, ways of learning or hiring have to be rethought.
The time of the “Tech companies” is over; there are only ‘companies’, steeped in technology. This is the Next Gen.

Please peruse last year’s Øredev’s website: www.oredev.org/2016 to discover further information about the previous speakers and topics.
A good paper will:
- Be of intermediate or advanced level, introductions are only accepted for new topics;
- Consider a significant problem/trend;
- Propose an interesting, compelling, pragmatic solution/insight;
- Draw appropriate conclusions;
- Clearly describe the knowledge prerequisites to be able to follow the session;
- Clearly tell what the attendees will learn;
- Clearly articulate the advances beyond previous work;
- Be complete!
Submissions will be subject to rigorous peer review by the program committee members and will be judged on originality, inspiration, significance, experience, interest, clarity and correctness.The official language is English.
Marketing and sales content in speaker presentations is contrary the spirit of Øredev!
It has happened that speakers talk too much about their company and annoy delegates. Ultimately, this is not good for the company or for Øredev. The result was very poor feedback for those speakers and Øredev did not publish the video of their presentation, which is of course the best marketing your organisation can get. Please respect the Øredev spirit.
