What Is SoCraTes?
SoCraTes Conference is an International Software Craftsmanship and Testing Conference in Germany. Having started in 2010, the conference is growing and spreading, with SoCraTes UK taking place for the fourth time, and SoCraTes France and SoCraTes Canaries in their second year, together with us, SoCraTes Day Switzerland. We are proud to be part of this family.
Open Space Technology is an approach for hosting meetings, conferences, corporate-style retreats and community summit events, on a specific and important purpose, but beginning without any formal agenda (source: Wikipedia). A related term is Unconference, typically used to imply discussions only, whereas we will be facilitating coding workshops as well, hence Open Space.
