Top Virtual Events on Technology This Summer
A digital version of the yearly Cisco event, the free “digital experience” will explore the future of Cisco technology and how the tech landscape is set to change in the coming years. There will also be sessions focused on technical education and online networking opportunities.
The Digital Transformation Conference
Switched from a physical event in London, the online virtual conference is available free to the first 1,000 sign-ups. Speakers include Just Eat CTO Fernando Fanton, Sky head of technology Louise Elliott and HSBC Global head of strategic, customer & commercial Kate Simon.
Originally set to be held in Boston, the US, LiveWorx 2020 is a free virtual event to help technologists apply digital transformation with clear outcomes in mind. Speakers include Black Girls CODE CEO Kimberly Bryant, PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann and author Nir Eyal.
The much-loved hacker conference goes virtual for 2020, promising the usual mix of training, socialising, theme-specific ‘villages’, entertainment and job fairs, all set against this year’s oddly appropriate theme: apocalypse. Pulling multiple platforms together, it is set to go well beyond a simple stream.
HPE Discover Virtual Experience
Designed to help attendees “address the challenges of today while transforming for tomorrow”, HPE Discover Virtual Experience combines live and on-demand sessions, demos and training, including certification. The event will be launched with a keynote from HPE CEO Antonio Neri.
Collision From Home
Replacing the Canada-based conference from the team behind Web Summit, Collision From Home promises the usual star-studded lineup in an interactive, completely digital format. Speakers include Uber CTO Thuan Pham, Microsoft President Brad Smith, DJ Steve Aoki and Google chief sustainability officer Kate Brandt.
Designed for coding newcomers and seasoned programming professionals alike, this conference is designed to be community-first, providing opportunities for learning, idea development and individual growth, alongside talks on key topics including open source and collaboration.
Now a four-day online-only event, NDC Melbourne provides insightful and compelling talks for software developers alongside key workshops on topics including cybersecurity, React and .NET web apps. Speakers include internet security specialist Troy Hunt and Headspring chief architect Jimmy Bogard.
