Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to attend the OutSystems One Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, representing JustSolve one of the branding sponsors. The experience was amazing, filled with innovation, insights, and connections that left me and my fellow Solver and UX lead, Kimberleigh Philips-Page, inspired and excited about our current career trajectories. In this blog post, I'll share the highlights of the OutSystems One Conference and explain why you should consider attending this event.
The OutSystems One Conference is a global gathering of experts from around the world. At this event, you can connect with other developers, designers, and OutSystems experts. During our visit, we attended over 15 tech sessions, giving us a sneak peek at new tools on the horizon and the chance to meet some fantastic and inspiring people.
This event is hosted by OutSystems, a leading name in low-code application development. It's held in Lisbon and offers fantastic networking opportunities, informative keynotes, and opportunities for skill improvement. In 2023, the conference took place in Lisbon, Denver, and Bengaluru, showcasing its growing global presence. With its increasing popularity, the 2024 conference will be even bigger and better.
What can you expect at the conference?
1. Inspiring Keynotes and Talks
The conference started with some interesting keynote talks by tech industry experts. They talked about the future of technology and how low-code development is changing businesses worldwide. They discussed things like OutSystems ODC and Project Morpheus, which are coming to OutSystems soon. These talks were not just informative; they were inspiring. I'm really looking forward to trying out Project Morpheus when it's released.
Over the course of this two-day conference, there were more than 40 talks, and I found myself wishing I could clone myself to attend even more sessions. As a front-end developer, I was particularly drawn to the 'Fresh Outlooks' category, which offered a treasure trove of front-end tips and tricks. Additionally, the 'High Adoption Experience' category was a standout for me, featuring sessions like vision workshops, extending the OutSystems UI framework, and mastering design systems, just to name a few.
2. Networking Opportunities
The conference served as a vibrant networking hub, bringing together professionals from a wide range of industries. The diverse crowd made it effortless to initiate conversations, share ideas, and establish valuable connections. Whether you’re searching for potential collaborators, OutSystems mentors, or just like-minded individuals, this event offered an ideal platform for meaningful networking. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet people you might have previously encountered online, perhaps during user group sessions or while reading their articles, or even when using components, they've created on the Forge. The networking possibilities were truly limitless.
Now that you know what happened at ONE let me tell you why you should try and attend next year.

Attending OutSystems One will immerse you in cutting-edge technologies, innovative ideas, and best practices.
