Skills Matter: Community-driven conferences

Since 2006 Skills Matter has organised over 200 conferences for over 40,000 attendees in London, New York and Paris.


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. In the past several years our conferences on Haskell, CloudNative, and Machine Learning have surged in popularity, and in 2019 we proudly launched BeyondTech — a new kind of conference that explored the role and responsibilities of tech in society.

In the coming weeks we will be announcing our slate of conferences for 2020 and 2021
