Just like the regular symposium, the ASAS Nights are meant for software architects, developers, requirements engineers and information analysts to share knowledge, discuss software architecture and meet their peers. For each night, we invite a different speaker to share his experience and knowledge with others. And of course there's food and drinks, too!
