It’s happening again, and bigger and better than last time! The Guild is a one day, single track conference about agile software engineering. We welcome product owners, programmers, managers and designers alike.

The Guild was organized twice before in 2013, covering topics ranging from ethical hacking and the agile customer experience to modular Sass and combinatorial innovation.

Now we want to take The Guild to the next level: an all-day, single track conference about agile software engineering. For this, we need to move to a more appropriate location in Eindhoven: The Evoluon.

    Ariejan de Vroom Speaker

    GPG is more relevant than ever in a modern age where government spying is the norm and no one on the internet can be trusted. This talk also takes a dive into how the RSA public key algorithm works at its core and how you can get started with GPG today.
