Created For People Who
Actually Build Stuff...

We like to think of ourselves as the conference for people who actually build stuff that's why it is called Build Stuff.

Every year, we invite prestigious guest speakers to share all the latest innovations, trends, and developments in the software development industry.

With the attitude that we invite speakers, not sessions, our world-class guests come from over Europe and even further abroad, delivering some of the highest quality content of any European conference.

Build Stuff is for everyone in software development teams.

That includes devs, team leads, agile/scrum coaches, engineering, managers, executives, founders, and more.

 

Likewise, in addition to great guest speakers, we host a number of engaging and up-to-the-moment workshops on a wide range of topics.

Build Stuff Goals

The overall goal of the conference is to offer more diversity to the Development of the Tech community and encourage continuous learning. 

Although we strive to bring people together. This explains the very practical side of Build Stuff Conferences.

 

It’s a place where software professionals, international speakers, share practical techniques, ideas, strategies, failures, lessons learned, and successes in an informal, intimate atmosphere. Build Stuff became a platform for a fruitful dialogue between software developers, architects, educators, and technology companies.
