Last week, I visited Amsterdam for GOTO Amsterdam 2023 and Amsterdam JUG. This week, I will be on the Island of Crete attending JCrete. This will be my last event before summer, and it is a perfect way to round off the conference season. JCrete is an unconference, which means that there are no talks scheduled and the agenda is made up as we go. It is a cool concept, and the topics tend to be of all kinds of categories. Something for everyone! If you want to check out an unconference, check out The JUnconference Alliance.
