As previously blogged in Announcing Tuga IT 2018 Summer Edition, is almost there and we have already revealed the 4 incredible workshops that we are hosting as part of our event between 19th and 21st of July. We shall host 2 workshops on Thursday and 2 workshops on Friday, while the regular sessions will take place on Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

The workshops are targeting Data Platform (Distributed & Relational), Development & Cloud, with speakers ranging from MVPs (Cassandra & Microsoft) to MCT, from Engineering Manager to Database Wizard (yeah, this description is applied by me to one of the speakers). Naturally their titles and descriptions can look as obscure and specific, but trust us – we did our very best in order to select the very best possible content out of the big number of workshops proposals that we have received. We know that those people are capable to deliver a first-class unique experience that we want Tuga It to deliver.
