About #SConf New Zealand

ScaleConf New Zealand is an international technical conference for those who build or maintain web systems. Audience includes developers, engineers and managers from companies of all sizes, researchers, academics, influential business decision makers, CTOs and VPs engaged in the web development and performance ecosystem.

Bringing together international and local thought-leaders, knowledge of innovators, and practitioners in development and operations. ScaleConf promises to provide plenty of networking opportunities, as well as opportunities to connect with decision makers, influencers and industry minds.

During this 2 day event, the first day will include a succession of Workshops and a pre-conference event, followed by a second day of scheduled presentations from international and local speakers and influential personalities within the tech industry. Presentation breaks, catered lunch and workshop training sessions all provide the perfect environment to mingle.
