MakeIT 2019 – Call for papers

Dear speakers,

Last year we successfully started a new path on the Slovenian IT conference scene with the MakeIT conference, where we covered current developments of technologies, which are at the basis of a successful implementation of on-premises and cloud IT solutions.

We continue along this path also in 2019. The MakeIT 2019 conference is a 2-day conference which will take place from October 14th to October 15th 2019 in the congress centre Portus in Portorose. We expect over 350 attendees.

Do you have interesting experiences and/or good practices you’d like to share? If the answer is yes, you’re invited to submit your abstract. That way you’ll help make the conference an interesting and useful event for  developers, end users, DBAs and decision makers.

The MakeIT 2019 conference will cover the following topics:

  • Cloud-native & DevOps (Serverless, CI, K8s, Docker, Prometheus, Istio, ...)
  • Java (JakartaEE, Microprofile, Spring, ...)
  • Database (Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Cassandra, …)
  • Database Development (APEX, PL/SQL, …)
  • Data Analytics (Big Data, BI, DWH)
  • Innovative Solutions (IoT, AI, Blockchain, Smart Cities, Smart Roads, Smart …)
  • Security & Infrastructure (Cybersecurity, GDPR, Identity management, …)


Presentation format and length

The official languages at the conference are Slovenian and English. It’s expected that the presentation is delivered in the same language as specified on the submission form.
