On May 19 and 20 we had another great edition of our user conference, the NextStep. It was an amazing event with the largest ever gathering of our customers, our partners, members of the press, and OutSystems employees.
During these two days we had keynotes, technical sessions, personal demos, breakfast tables, lunches and coffee breaks. And in all of these everybody shared their work experiences, their expertise using the Agile Platform, their ideas on how to make IT more efficient, and a myriad of other topics were discuss around making business and IT life easier.
So that you have an idea of how busy the event was this year, here are a few of the numbers that made NextStep ’11 so awesome!
We had 7 booths at the expo hall
We filled 12 breakfast tables, each discussing an IT topic
We handed out 12 agility awards to our customers and partners
We had 27 great sessions on business and technology
We welcomed over 500 participants…
…from 10 different countries!
We had a lot of fun organizing this event, and hope everybody enjoyed it. But this was only possible thanks to our fabulous speakers, to our sponsoring partners, to everyone that helped assemble and organize the venue and, of course, to everybody that attended and turned NextStep into a great show. Thank you very much!
We’ve made a lot of material available online to those that attended and want to review it, and to those that couldn’t make it but wished they were there. You can get it at the NextStep website.

The transformation IoT promises is one that makes technology seamless and transparent to the point of becoming almost invisible. This is, for me, the alchemy of our days.
How can you capture this somewhat elusive spirit of transformation, creation and combination when you’re talking about the Internet of Things? What is the transmutation that we can aspire to, what is the lead we’re starting with and what is the gold that we’re trying to achieve?
We need to start by understanding what the Internet of Things is. Because everyone knows what the internet is, let’s start by understanding what these Things are, then.

The notion that a suitably sophisticated platform might ease the custom coding work of software developers has been around for many years.
Fourth-generation languages (4GLs) like PowerBuilder and Delphi touted such ease of development, opening up enterprise software creation to less seasoned application creators while simplifying and accelerating the work of their more experienced colleagues. (more…)
