The big list of IT and tech conferences in 2016

Everybody loves a good tech conference. It's a chance to get away for a while, get some inspiration, hang out with some nice interesting people, catch up and get a bit tipsy!

Tech Conferences 2016

I've been looking at conferences that could be interesting to attend in 2016, and decided to make a list and share it. The list it not exhaustive, and very skewed towards things I find interesting. Expect to find things like: Cloud, DevOps, software craftsmanship, functional programming, .NET, architecture and design, continuous delivery and Big Data.

You'll find two lists here.

  • A list of conferences with set dates
  • A list of conferences that I expect to appear again in 2016, but which haven't got a date yet (some of them are still coming up this year)

I'll revisit the lists once in a while, update links, and move the conferences between the lists when dates are decided (last update 12th of Jan 2016). Let me now if you have suggestions for conferences to add, or if you spot any incorrect information.
