There is no agenda and there are no speakers before the event starts. Proposals are presented during the event itself in the mornings, and voted by the participants right after. It’s a great opportunity to speak to and code with many like-minded and talented developers in an incredible venue by the beach.
The retreat itself is free. The only thing you pay for is the hotel, meals and meeting rooms. We will be there for 48 hours to collaborate and share ideas. There will be hands-on coding sessions, sessions focused on discussion, interactive talks and lots more.
We will not only spend the days together but also the nights. And – believe it or not – programmers are a great company! There will be lots of opportunities to spend your time. Starting with simple chilling over hiking and biking, playing games, hanging around, talking, laughing…
We will announce the schedule with the final dates. SoCraTes usually last for 3 days from Thursday to Sunday. We meet and have an small introduction on Thursday afternoon, followed by a Lightning talk session. During Friday and Saturday we run an Open Space. And Sunday is a day to recap and farewell each others.
SoCraTes is based on sharing. There is no agenda and all attendees will decide the panel. It is a great opportunity to ask about that doubt you have been thinking on, or to share your next talk to practice, or even to share one more time a talk you have done several times but taking the time to discuss with the rest, and also why not proposed a fishbowl talk about that trend topic. All the goods of an Open Space with time to relaz and ejoy an amazing venue.
We are all speakers and attendees. We all share, we all learn, we all relax and at the end we all get something from each others
With 80+ attendees, SoCraTes is mainly about people, how we live our profession and how we can get the most of it.
People all around europe had joined SoCraTes during the last 6 years, and we are proud to always onboard different people every year
