Event description

Description

Forbes’ no.6 ranked cloud company is coming to Krakow! And to celebrate the arrival of our pre-IPO, hypergrowth company, we’re celebrating in style.

Join us for drinks and entertainment and hear from our amazing engineers, including former Director of Engineering at Amazon, John Thimsen and the head of Qualtrics Poland, Piotr Uryga.

You’ll hear from our experienced engineers who’ll cover everything from how we grew to a $2.5bn valued company to how we’re developing an AWS-hosted CDN that gathers and analyses data from 50 million responses a month and how our teams in Krakow are leading our brand new React Native mobile app.

Spaces are limited, register now and secure your place to hear from great speakers, meet some of the best in the business and enjoy drinks and evening entertainment at our launch party.

Here’s just a snapshot of what you’ll hear at the event in our TED-style short talks:

‘Alexa, find me the biggest job of my career’

It’s hard to imagine Amazon’s Director of Engineering walking away just after the launch of Echo - but that’s exactly what John Thimsen did. Now Head of Engineering at Qualtrics, find out why John saw it as an opportunity of a lifetime and hear first hand how he’s scaling the team from 50 to 400 engineers to fuel Qualtrics’ meteoric rise.

How engineers are defining the Qualtrics culture

Everything starts with the engineers, according to Head of Poland for Qualtrics, Piotr Uryga. As he looks to scale the Poland engineering team in Qualtrics, he’ll explain how the culture driven by independent co-located engineering teams owning their software is the bedrock for the rest of the organisation that’s helping us stand out from the rest of the market.

Machine learning, AI and text analysis

Hear from Senior Engineering Manager, Ryan Debenham, about how AI and machine learning are driving a revolution in text analytics that could be a game-changer for the way people interact with brands and employers. He’ll explore the latest developments and how Qualtrics is using them to develop advanced text analytics.

Catch me if you can - how continuous deployment keeps Qualtrics in front

When you’re leading the category (or defining it in our case), you can’t stop for a second. So how can Qualtrics keep up its rapid pace of development as competitors scramble to match it? Hear from Craig Kulfan, Senior Director of Engineering at Qualtrics about how he introduced continuous deployment for whole Amazon Web Services and how he’s bringing those lessons with him to keep Qualtrics ahead of the game.
