Business insights

Join Chief Wine Officer and Cockroach Labs right from your home for an evening of networking, fine wine tasting and knowledge sharing. We’ll discuss how the most successful companies of 2023 designed and deployed applications that could scale globally and fulfil every customer demand. You’ll further see how their time-saving approach to app development can minimise costs by up to $8 million. Throughout the evening, our Master of Wine, one of only 416 in the world, will also guide you on a premium wine-tasting experience. Shall we book your spot?

As you enter a competitive new year, your mission-critical apps are more important than ever. At this unique event, you’ll see how market leaders are delivering apps that can handle even billions of requests with complete ease and guaranteed availability. Their secret is surprisingly simple, and it starts at the foundation layer: the database. You’ll hear insights from Gorka Lerchundi, Engineering Manager & Tech Lead, SALTO Systems, on how they pioneered this approach and unlocked new efficiencies in their organisation.

Key discussion points

  • How to build business-critical applications with seamless customer experience while tightly controlling overheads and costs
  • How to remove the main bottlenecks in your process and accelerate your app development
  • How to ensure you achieve high availability, even as you scale up your operation, with sought-after techniques

This event is open to just 12 senior tech leaders from across Europe in charge of app development and architecture. Book your spot – they fill up fast. And why not invite a senior colleague, too?
