Learn across the stack

Hilton Antwerp Old Town

Full Stack Europe is the international conference for developers who want to learn across the stack. Step out of your comfort zone and improve not only your existing skills, but learn new ones as well. Do you identify as full stack or are you interested in front end, back end, devops, design or anything in between? This is the conference for you!

Full Stack Europe is a two day conference with an extra day of workshops. There’s a mix of short 30 minute talks and longer keynotes, giving you insights in a wide range of topics. The breaks give you ample time to mingle with fellow full stack developers, speakers, experts, and vendors.

Full Stack Europe is organised by Dries Vints, Freek Van der Herten & Rias Van der Veken. They’re well known members in the full stack community, and organize the Full Stack Belgium meetups in Antwerp and Ghent.
