Back to Berlin in 2024

While recordings are a great way to share the wealth of information presented by expert speakers, not even the most talented videographer can capture the great conversations happening between the community members in attendance, and there is nothing like networking face-to-face.

Mark your calendars and save the date, as Flink Forward is heading back to Berlin, Germany in October 2024!
