About Us

RebelCon 2020

Rebellious thinkers change the world.

There are always game changers in history. The industrialists of the new century, the bankers of the 80’s. Today it’s the software practitioners. This is our time, software is eating the world and software practitioners are the dream makers. Embrace your rebel, dare differently and love what you do.

This year we will bring together the software engineering community from across Ireland for a two day extravaganza of workshops, talks, and breakout sessions.

Day 1:
4 x day long workshops

Day 2:
We kick off with an amazing keynote followed by 4 parallel tracks of talks focusing on the following topics:

  • Cyber Security,
  • Practical DevOps,
  • Ways of Working,
  • Rebel Track, our signature track inspiring you to dream big and dare differently.
