Since 2014, DataArt, IT Ukraine member, has been holding an international IT NonStop conference, which brings together novice and experienced engineers, programmers, managers, and experts in the field of business development. IT NonStop keeps pace with cutting-edge technologies, market and domain trends, and other IT solutions that drive changes in the modern world. Every year, the conference presents numerous formats such as speeches, workshops, discussion panels, and others to deliver information in the most comprehensible way to our audience.
IT NonStop 2021 will run for 3 days: November 18–20. The working language of IT NonStop is English. However, sections aimed at novice specialists will be conducted mostly in Russian. IT NonStop 2021 is free of charge. The program of one of the days consists entirely of workshops and introductory lectures for beginner IT specialists.
The main topics of the conference this year are Cloud, Data, Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence.
At the same time, the mission of the conference is not limited to the dissemination of relevant IT knowledge. The hosts believe the industry is indebted to the pioneers of programming and computer engineering. Thanks to their work, information technology plays a vital role in modern society.
Therefore, under IT NonStop 2021, the participants are developing an educational project dedicated to the Small Electronic Counting Machine (MESM) - one of the first computers in Europe. It was designed in Kyiv in the early 1950s. Already in 1951, MESM was used in the space program. And in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Machine, DataArt organized a crowdfunding campaign to create an online project, where they will collect all available materials about this computer.
