The Conference

GOTO Conference is a software development conference designed for developers, team leads, architects, and project managers and is organized "for developers by developers". As software developers and architects ourselves, we wanted to create a great social and learning experience.


We cover wide array of trending and cutting-edge technologies, all related to this year's topic «Digital Transformation».
Please note that below Tracks titles are subject to change.

While We Wait

GOTO Amsterdam is held at the Beurs van Berlage.

The Beurs van Berlage is a building on the Damrak, in the centre of Amsterdam. It was designed as a commodity exchange by architect Hendrik Petrus Berlage and constructed between 1896 and 1903.

The building is constructed of red brick, with an iron and glass roof and stone piers, lintels and corbels. Its entrance is under a 40m high clock tower, while inside lie three large multi-storey halls formerly used as trading floors, with offices and communal facilities grouped around them.
