Socrates in a nutshell

SoCraTes Days Linz 2018 is a two-day conference. On both days we will have an open space conference about software crafts and testing. On Friday, our first day, we will start in the early afternoon and continue late into the night. On saturday, we will start in the morning and end the open space at 5 p.m. Afterwards, we will have dinner and evening sessions.

We will also prepare rooms where you can host two-hour or four-hour workshops. We will decide on the workshops just as we decide on the sessions: During the “market place”, when we begin the day.

The open space conference is entirely created by the participants with a facilitator who will guide through both days.


We want to bring software developers, testers, architects, designers and other people involved with software development together. We want to learn from each other and share our knowledge.


This conference is about finding better ways to develop software: We will talk and learn about coding, code quality, quality of work, testing, sustainable development, mastery and other topics.


SoCraTes Days Linz is a conference that is entirely created by its participants. We want hands-on coding sessions, sessions focused on discussion, interactive talks, and more.


There will be lots of opportunities to meet, connect, learn, teach, share, and have fun together. We also highly encourage "fun sessions".

The main language of the event (facilitation, group activities) will be English. Sessions can be in German if everybody in the audience of the session understands German or if you announce the session as “German session”.
