Speaking at the Tweakers Developers Summit 2023

My Tweakers Developer Summit access card

Last week I had the oppurtunity to speak at the Tweakers Developers Summit in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The event consisted of several tracks including, front-end, back-end, DevOps, security, smart home, and AI. The venue was the awesome De Fabrique (old industrial complex) and it was packed with developers. I really enjoyed watching the keynote by Linda Liukas, the author of the Hello Ruby book series. It was really inspiring to hear her talk about how children (and adults!) can learn programming concepts in a playful way.

My session, which was part of the back-end track, covered how Dapr speeds up distributed systems development by using the many building block APIs. The preceding session named From Monolith to Microservices and Beyond was a great lead-in to my session (thanks again Peter van Vliet!).

The slides can be downloaded here. If you want to learn more about Dapr or have questions about the project, please join the Dapr Discord.
