“Each segfault ends in a coredump” – anonymous programmer just before starting gdb


CoreDump – the answer to your need to find inspiration, "wrapped in” two intense conference days.

We want to create space for everyone, regardless of technology, favourite programming language or their role in a team. We want to give participants an injection of ideas, and show them a different perspective on the problems being solved. We wish to prove that inspiration can be found exactly where our knowledge or experience cannot reach.

The first day of CoreDump is the Community Day. We want to invite all Polish IT communities to meet in one place, exchange experiences, knowledge and contacts, and to support local communities with new ideas. On this day, all the invited, thriving communities will meet up to listen to presentations given by their best speakers.

What can happen after such an intense day? What else but the second day!

The second day is about the invited guests. We have chosen not only the best speakers, but also people who change the future with their daily work – and not only the future of our industry. Each of the blocks of this year’s edition of CoreDump (programming languages, distributed systems, databases and future of work) will culminate in a discussion panel.

Looking for inspiration? CoreDump. You simply have to be there!


programming languages

and a discussion on the subject of the value of newly created languages and the problems which remain unsolved in this area;

distributed systems

and a discussion on techniques of verification of correctness of these systems in the light of overwhelming microservice madness;


and news from the world of ever growing petabytes stored in data centres and whether the conflict between SQL and noSQL databases is just a marketing gimmick;

future of work, i.e.

a conversation on how organisations where we work have to and do change, how the approach to the way we provide value to companies will change and how to keep balance in all this.

Experience is a master teacher, even when it’s not our own. - Gina Greenlee

We are a group of people that has been shaping the market of IT conferences for over 10 years as active members of communities, conference organisers, members of programme boards and speakers. Throughout our operations, we have spurred a number of communities into action. In addition, we are professionally involved in the development of software on many levels – as programmers, architects and consultants.

For years, our idée fixe has been a return to the roots and construction of a solid foundation for the development of the IT industry in Poland. We want to go beyond the “closed categories” of Java, Spring Boot, .NET., PHP, Python, Docker, test, programmer or architect.
