What is GOTO Chicago?
GOTO Chicago is the enterprise software development conference designed for team leads, architects, and project management and is organized by developers, for developers. As software developers and architects ourselves, we wanted to craft the ultimate conference.
The result is a high quality conference experience where a tremendous amount of attention and investment has gone into having the best content on the most important topics presented by the leaders in our community, staged in an intimate environment needed to support as much learning and networking as possible.
Our concept has always been to present the latest developments as they become relevant and interesting for the software development community. With a 360 degree perspective we present new technology and trends in a non vendor forum to give the attendees inspiration, energy and desire to learn. Plus, we always have awesome speakers!
The idea for GOTO came about in the late 1990's as the management at Trifork wanted to create a vendor independent forum that would give the development staff inspiration, energy and desire to learn coupled with the chance to network and simply to hang out with some of the "rock stars" of the IT community. Now 16 years later, the concept has grown from a small software conference to some of the leading developer conferences in the world. In 2014-15, GOTO Conferences will take place in Chicago, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam and Aarhus. GOTO Chicago is a joint partnership and is produced by Trifork and Bedarra Labs.
