A recap of the European workshop on software ecosystems 2016

The workshop was a complete success with thirty participants. Academics and professionals were happy with the presentations and even more with the opportunities and time to ask questions and to interact with presenters and fellow professionals. With people from numerous companies like Huawei, Amazon Web services, Netfira, SAP, Synomic and others the workshop was equipped with professionals from large and small software companies and service providers.

What made this workshop successful were the discussions about the presentations but also the interactions in breaks and during lunch. A big thank you goes out to all presenters, participants and sponsors!
