XTech is the premier European conference for developers, information designers and managers working with web and standards-based technologies. We bring together the worlds of web development, open source, Web 2.0 and open standards.

The theme for this year’s conference is “The Web on the Move”. For years we have been developing and promoting open data standards, enabling data portability. Recent developments have led to web-wide programming APIs and virtualization. It’s no longer just our data on the move, it’s our applications and even our servers too.

What impact will this era of unprecedented portability have on us? How should we change the way we build for the web? XTech 2008 will examine the technology, war stories and practical concerns of developing for today’s web.

XTech is organized by IDEAlliance.
