Previous editions

The Guild #2

The second edition of The Guild was a great success. Sixty software professionals learned about ethical hacking, modular front-end code and javascript promises. Above all, we had a great fun — thanks to the pub quiz, good food and awesome people.

See more photos and recorded talks.

The Guild #1

Organising an event like The Guild is no easy feat. In order to be well prepared we decided to do a trial for Kabisians only. It was a great success.

With more than half a dozen speakers, talking about topics ranging from Vertical Rythm to MBA vs. Engineer, we had a very inspiring afternoon and evening.

Soon you’ll be able to find the slide decks for the talks here on
