Top Omnis Speakers at EurOmnis Developer Conference

EurOmnis is a developer conference run by developers, for developers from across Europe and the rest of the world. It provides 4 fully packed days of intensive technical sessions, 20 of the most prominent and knowledgeable speakers in the Omnis world, 50 sessions, around 60 different subjects, plus lectures, forums, and representing more than 300 hours of learning. The conference fees pay for themselves just in terms of the training and knowledge you will gain from attending EurOmnis – and you will you make new friends, business contacts, and have a lot of fun (and you get to hear the Omnis band..!).
The EuOmnis conference this year takes place in Germany, October 7-12, at the stunning Burg Hemmersbach, a beautiful old castle/chateau located on the edge of a forest, close to Cologne and only 50 minutes from Düsseldorf Airport. The venue has recently been refurbished to a high standard, with all the facilities you would expect including 60 double rooms, conference auditorium, meeting rooms, smaller breakout rooms, and looks ideal for the EurOmnis-style conference.
At the heart of the EurOmnis conference are the technical sessions and the incredible, world-class speakers, and this year is no exception… With the recent Studio 8.1 enhancements and upcoming Studio 9 release there is so much to talk about, explore and revel in. The speakers are without exaggeration some of the most knowledgeable and experienced Omnis developers in the world – many of them have 20+ years’ experience of using Omnis, have built successful businesses around their software development, and are proven speakers at previous Omnis conferences and other events.
