Over the last few years, Infobip partnered with Shift conference founder and CEO Ivan Burazin, who is also Infobip's Chief Developer Experience Officer, to completely reimagine Shift for North American audiences and beyond-inviting attendees to hear from some of the most sought-after trailblazers of the global developer community, enjoy the panel discussions on the hottest tech topics of the day, and expand their knowledge in various fields of development. Shift Europe has long been a successfl feature on the developer and innovative tech event circuit. Shift Miami will build on this success, bringing together innovative, inspirational, and immersive in-person and digital experiences across a global gathering of some of the brightest and most brilliant thinkers in tech. This inaugural event also represents a significant breakthrough in Infobip's efforts to increase its footprint in the United States.
"The conference expansion outside of Europe is a logical progression of the event considering the number of developers working in the U.S. In the coming years, we will expand into other continents, transforming a successful regional player into a global one," said Burazin. "Keeping the developer community connected and focused on growth is increasingly relevant considering the recent period of uncertainties in the tech sector, marked by mass lay-offs. Shift is integral to Infobip's efforts to strengthen and support the developer ecosystem globally."
"Shift will showcase an impressive line-up of speakers from the top of the industry sharing cutting-edge insights on AI-code creation, Cloud platform, and cloud-native development, Developer Velocity, Blockchain development, front-end trends, sustainable technology trends and more," said Nikola Radišic, Global Events Team Lead at Infobip. Speakers confirmed to date include John Romero (the father of first-person shooters, most notably Doom), Ekene Eze (Director of Developer Relations at Abridged), Kitze (founder of Sizzy), Joyce Lin (Head of Developer Relations at Postman), Jhey Tompkins (Developer Relations Engineer at Google), and many more.
