Since 2006 Skills Matter has organised over 200 conferences for over 40,000 attendees around the world.


Starting with RailsConf Europe 2006, the first European conference on Ruby on Rails, we’ve worked closely with the community experts and early-adopters to answer the question, what’s next in tech? Skills Matter organised Europe’s first conferences on topics including Scala, Domain-Driven Design, Erlang, Continuous Integration, Clojure, iOS, Microservices, and grew droidcon London into the world’s largest android developer conference, and in 2019 we proudly launched BeyondTech — a new kind of conference that explored the role and responsibilities of tech in society.

October 2020 brings another 'first' for us. Going forward, all of our conferences will have an online/virtual attendance stream. Beyond the current COVID‑19 pandemic, we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers. As we roll out our programme of events over the coming months and year, online participation from around the globe will be a critical part of all Skills Matter events.
