JCommerce at the Web Summit 2017 in Lisbon

Today is the start of the Web Summit, one of the world’s largest technology conferences, which has been bringing IT professionals together since 2010 – from Fortune 500 companies to small startups. For the past few days, participants and speakers have been arriving in Lisbon, where this year’s edition of the conference has been organized. Among them – for the first time – is the JCommerce team, proudly representing one of the biggest software development outsourcing companies in Poland.

We arrived in Lisbon from Katowice on Saturday to prepare for the conference, but it was not until Monday that everything really got started. The inauguration evening drew crowds who wanted to know what direction the industry is going in and what kind of surprises are being prepared by technological giants, and how the world is reacting to these changes. The special guests and speakers included representatives of both the business and political worlds.

After the inauguration, the participants are waiting impatiently for further attractions, of which there are plenty. As of today, the marathon of conferences and meetings will begin, during which we will have the opportunity to listen to celebrities such as:

  • Brad Smith – President of Microsoft
  • Werner Vogels – Chief Technology Officer of Amazon
  • Gillian Tans – President and CEO of Booking.com
  • Sean Red – Co-founder of Tinder
  • Brian Krzanich – CEO of Intel
  • Stewart Butterfield – Co-founder of Slack
  • the former President of France Francois Hollande
  • people from Uber, Google, Facebook, Messenger and many more.

What are our plans for the Web Summit?

Of course we will always be available for visitors at our booth at Pavilion FIL 3, Booth B 614, but besides that you can also meet us at conferences, Round Tables and Mentor Hours, and at the Summit Pub as well 😉 We promise to be everywhere!
