Digital is no longer an option.
We need to reboot and recover, and to do that digital is critical. It’s a catalyst for economic growth and is supporting the transformation of businesses across the globe.
CmdR ScotSoft is the leading tech conference in Scotland and has been running for more than 20 years. It’s an annual festival of ideas and innovation that showcases the best of the Scottish technology sector and brings you sought after speakers from far flung locations.
We seek to help technology businesses and professionals focus on future trends, opportunities for growth, look at personal development in leadership skills and strategies and help the digital community in Scotland prosper.
This year is no different. We’ll bring together a community like minded professionals to learn from the very best within our industry – only instead of connecting in person, we’ll do it in a virtual environment.
You’ll enjoy a packed day with speakers drawn from all corners of the world. This year we’ve got Steve “Guggs” Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President – AI & ISV Engagement at Microsoft Corporation, Rik Ferguson, Vice President of Security Research at Trend Micro, Andrew Harmel-Law, Technical Principal at ThoughtWorks, security geek Mark Goodwin (Mozilla) – check out our speakers and agenda to find out more.
We’ll be running parallel sessions throughout the day focussing on things your business can do to recover and grow, taking a deep dive into core subjects including cloud, AI, languages and security, and also looking at how technology can help transform non-tech businesses, highlighting some of the best solutions Scotland has to offer.
So if you’re a practitioner, leader or just an interested observer, join us, we’d love to have you.
