OutSystems Developer Days Tokyo 2024

Apr 28, 2024 | OutSystems


I recently had the incredible opportunity to speak at the OutSystems Developer Days Tokyo 2024 event which was held last April 26th, 2024 at Tokyo Conference Center Shinagawa. There where over 300 passionate developers gathered to explore the latest trends and advancements in low code software development. As a first-time public speaker, I was both excited and nervous to share my insights with such a diverse and knowledgeable audience.

The Presentation

My presentation centered around the theme of “ODC Architecture Design Patterns,” a topic that has become increasingly relevant to those evaluating and adopting our new platform – OutSystems Developer Cloud (ODC). Divided into three main categories, I delved into the fundamental concepts of ODC, the principles behind designing a well-architected application, and explored various architecture design patterns that can elevate the efficiency and scalability of software solutions.

The journey began with a simple self-introduction. From there, we embarked on a 40-minute exploration of ODC Basic Concepts, Designing a Well Architected Application, and ODC Architecture Design Patterns. Each category offered unique insights and practical strategies for developers looking to successfully design their architecture in ODC.

With each passing minute, I felt more at ease, drawn in by the warmth and enthusiasm of the audience. The 40-minute presentation flew by in a blur, as we journeyed together through the intricacies of ODC Basic Concepts, the art of Designing a Well Architected Application, and the power of ODC Architecture Design Patterns.

Below is one of the most memorable moments came when a colleague of mine took a photo from the back of the hall. The image captured the essence of the event perfectly: a vibrant community coming together to learn, to grow, and to inspire one another.

Also did you know that Japan is the 2nd largest low code community globally? How cool is that!

But the experience didn’t end with the presentation. Throughout the event, attendees were treated to a selection of snacks and refreshments, ensuring that energy levels remained high and spirits were lifted. And as the day drew to a close, we gathered once more for a delicious dinner, a chance to unwind and reflect on the day’s learnings.

Wasn’t able to take photos of all the dinner served but all our stomach were happy and full.

Reflecting on My First Public Speaking Event

Looking back on the experience, I am filled with a sense of fulfillment and gratitude. Public speaking can be a daunting task, but the support and encouragement of the OutSystems Developer Days community made it an incredibly rewarding experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and insights and look forward to future opportunities to connect with fellow developers and continue learning and growing together.

To all those who attended the event, thank you for your participation and enthusiasm. And to anyone considering stepping out of their comfort zone and embracing public speaking, I encourage you to seize the opportunity. The journey may be challenging, but the rewards are immeasurable.

Until next time, happy low coding!
