The program is divided in three themes:

  • Portfolio Estimation
  • IT Cost Estimation
  • The Value of IT

Each day has it’s own theme, so if a full 3-day conference is too much for you, you can also select one or two days with the theme(s) of your choice. Details will be added, as soon as they become available. We will also have an interesting side-program for partners who are not interested in a software conference, but like to get to know the beauty of Haarlem and its culture.
