My favorite part about working at 8th Light are the connections made with brilliant peers, and the insights we share.
As consultants, our team interactions vary from day-to-day. Throughout the week, we’re staffed on different projects with very little overlap, but when we come together to discuss our work, it often sparks larger lessons and revelations that resonate across contexts.
This is why I’m thrilled to share that this year we’re inviting our community and client partners to join in our knowledge sharing at sparkConf on July 14, 2023. SparkConf is a one-day, single-track conference with speakers selected from 8th Light’s extended universe, including current and former 8th Lights.
Although this is our first time hosting sparkConf, it builds on a legacy of continual learning. Inspired by our internal miniConf, sparkConf’s lineup includes a few recent fan favorite presentations, with additional stories curated to show how a single team can spark meaningful and systematic organizational change.
sparkConf is also an evolution of how we share ourselves with the larger community, which has been a foundational part of 8th Light’s culture from our beginning. Our commitment to learning and growing alongside our community has shown up in 8th Light University, WindyCityRails, Software Craftsmanship North America conferences, guilds, and any of the dozens of other Meetups, conferences, and community partnerships.
We’re excited to share the list of sessions, with presentations that cover the full spectrum of how 8th Light unlocks value from quality software in partnership with great businesses like yours.
In the meantime, you can reserve a seat, and tell your network to join in and help us spark something great together.
