Coffee is a mandatory attribute of our conference, as coffee breaks are our special areas for networking and communication. Coffee is converted into high quality code :) That's why we invite the best barista Teahouse. The only difficult decision you should make is to make your choice: espresso, latte, cappuccino, rough coffee, flat white?
We know people attend conference event not only to listen to cool speakers. Networking is one of the most important conference values, and we do our best to create all conditions for effective communication.

We make cozy lounge zones for communication with a glass of Mojito or a cup of aroma coffee. We ensure networking by Q&A with speakers for those who do not like to ask question in big public.
