Build an App in 2 Hours
Concrete Foundations of Architecture 
You’re busy. We get it. Learning a new technology takes time and dedication. In this two-hour session, we’ll help you build your first OutSystems app. Not only that, but you’ll leave with a complete understanding of the tools, docs and training available so you can continue your learning when you go back to the office. Best of all, you’ll take an app with you to prove it.
Architecture doesn't have to be scary. All it takes is a down-to-earth approach. In this session, an expert who has been setting up architecture and explaining the concepts ever since the early days of OutSystems will share his knowledge. He’ll explain, in simple concrete terms, how to integrate with legacy systems, how to stratify data persistence with performance in mind, how to manage master data that spans across all systems and how to adopt a microservices strategy for continuous delivery. It’s all your questions answered in terms you understand.

Creating a Culture of Digital Innovation with Low-Code
Building Great Mobile Experiences with Low-Code
A company with a 25-year history and a longtime partnership with IBM, Advanced Programs has seen more than a few IT fads come and go.

On a quest to modernize these applications and create systems of innovation, Advanced Programs recognized that low-code offers a compelling path forward. Join Advanced Programs and IBM to learn how forward-thinking organizations can evolve their core systems and benefit from the innovation that low-code delivers.

Panel Discussion - Lessons from the Low-Code Journey
Ensuring Quality Throughout the Software Development Lifecycle
Hear from a variety of customers and partners how their low-code journey started and has evolved. From best practices for those in the early stages, to lessons learned by organizations who are pushing the low-code envelope, this session will provide practical guidance and insights for all companies using low-code to become more digital. Miguel Lopes, OutSystems Vice President of Analyst Relations, will moderate this panel.
Building great user experiences is about more than interaction and performance. If the app doesn't do what's expected, users will simply stop using it. As apps mature from experimental prototypes to mission critical and highly scalable, ensuring continuous quality becomes an essential part of delivery. But the number of tests, even for a small application, can rapidly become unmanageable, and running them has a cost. Learn from our experts and partners how to define the best test strategy for your mobile apps.
