“2020 is going to be my year!”, right? That’s definitely how this year started for many of us, and especially for the Prow team, as we were really excited to launch the first edition of this conference and gather all the doers, makers, builders, you name them.
Then life happened, at a such a high speed that even the greatest makers had to regather their forces.
But you know what? The doers, the makers, the builders have this thing in common - they adapt and they innovate and they make the best out of their current circumstances or resources. Therefore, 2020 is still going to be our year, and we will adapt to this new reality the best way possible. Prow will take place on 6 November, at Iulius Congress Hall in Timisoara, and the entire event will be streamed online for those who can’t join us at the location or simply prefer this type of participation.
National and international speakers will be the first prows to go on stage and share some of their insights, and their perspectives on what the latest technologies actually mean to product people. New frameworks, skills and problems we need to solve on the market will have their dedicated minutes of fame under the spotlight.
