About

Building The Future is the point where technology, transformation and leadership meet to empower people and organizations.
Here you’ll find world-class experts who are changing the way we interact with reality. You will be able to learn from them with hands-on sessions and outstanding use cases.
Aiming to become Portugal’s greatest tech event in 2019, Building The Future is the place to build the vision, the strategy, the foundations and the code necessary to create your future.

Technology has redefined our understanding of human progress.
With digital transformation happening right now at an incredible pace, developers have never had such a great need to adapt to new, cutting-edge technologies, and business’s decision-makers have never had to be as quick and swift in their investment choices.
Here you will get to know the trends and the vision for our collective future.

If you think you’re already digitally transformed and making the most of the digital era, think again!
At Building The Future you'll have the chance to learn from visionary leaders and innovative use cases, on how Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, big data, IoT, blockchain and Augmented Reality are redefining the way we relate with clients, boosting productivity, creating new products and services and reshaping the way we collaborate and work.

All businesses are technological nowadays. You don’t need to be a heavy user or a developer to understand or be passionate about it, and you don’t need to have the investment capacity of multinational organizations to make a difference in it. We strongly believe in democratizing technology and the content offered allows anyone to fully emerge into what a technological business is. If you wish to be a builder for this new digital era, you have to start with the foundations.

Go deeper. Move forward. Code! Whether you are a DevOps, an IT Pro, a Maker or you’re just getting started with javascript, in our hands-on sessions, we'll give you the skills to build the future. Get in touch with the technology you love, watch live demos, learn from experts and make a difference.
