Smashing the Virtual Barrier

NDC 2020 – Smashing the virtual barrier

With social distancing and working from home our new norm, people have had to learn new ways to connect. Sadly for now large events are a thing of the past. For 25 years I have travelled to America for conferences without missing a year, until Coronavirus hit.

I also travelled to Europe most of those years, and it is no secret that NDC Oslo is my favourite developers conference in the world. It’s like attending a rock concert for developers, where you get to ride wave after wave of epic developer talks, interact with great people and socialise with ‘your tribe’. Jakob Bradford and his Norwegian team have created something truly special, and SSW look forward to it every year.
