Dezyne Community Meeting


Time remaining:


Help us to better help you!

Engineering great software is getting tougher. Complexity and connectivity is increasing. But at the same time systems must become more flexible, robust, reliable and resilient. Recruiting additional software engineers to address these problems is increasingly difficult. Taking longer to deliver the next generation of your application is inconceivable. So how do you plan to address these challenges? And how can Verum help?

This is the theme of Verum’s Dezyne Community Meeting on the 14th of September. In addition to hearing from a range of Verum’s customers and partners about how they are tackling these challenges, we offer you the chance to discuss your software engineering challenges with the Verum team and wider Dezyne community in a series of round table and focus group discussions. Not only is this an opportunity to learn from others, you can also help us to add to Dezyne more of the value that you need.

The program for the day is shown below. The aim of the round table is to discuss the challenges that face software engineering and share ideas on tackling these issues. It will be hosted by a panel of experts and will be open to all CM17 attendees. The focus groups will discuss Verum’s Dezyne roadmap through 2018 and attendees will be encouraged to provide us with their ideas on new features for Dezyne and help us prioritize feature development. Attendance of a focus group meeting is by invitation.

To add extra flavour to our the event, Verum is pleased to offer all attendees our exclusive “Dezyner Beer” collection from Stadsbrouwerij De Kat (Helmond, The Netherlands).

Stadsbrouwerij De Kat is a local microbrewery founded and operated by Verum’s Maarten van de Waarsenberg. De Kat has been supplying beer connoisseurs in Helmond with artisanal beer for almost 2 years. In the last year demand has risen by 150% and Maarten has now reached his capacity limit of 200 litres per week. Fortunately, from the beginning of next year, his capacity will increase to up to 500L per week.

Included in the Verum gift box are three De Kat beers: Peel Ale (pale ale), Nicodemus (double beer) and Hemelrijk (triple beer). Peel Ale is a high fermentation beer with an amber colour. It is low on hopps with a malty taste that feeds a thirst for more. Nicodemus is the original beer that Verum tested extensively for Maarten. It’s a high fermentation, dark beer with 7.5% alcohol. Hemelrijk is a Helmond beer fermented in the Belgian style. Golden blond, low on hopps and with 9% alcohol, Hemelrijk is pure liquid pleasure.

Impression of last year’s Community Meeting

Last year we had presentations from i.a. Elekta (Nucletron), Prodrive Technology, Lely Technologies, Phenom World and Bitwise Europe. These are amongst the companies who have evaluated and adopted Dezyne in 2016. Each company had a story to tell about applying Dezyne, the lessons they have learned and the initial benefits they have gained.  Other presentations given were from Sioux Embedded Systems, the Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Sciences.

The full presentations are available here.
