Lille’s going to be the place to be on January 17-18th. Tech center / incubator EuraTechnologies and Promotion of Future Digital Technologies Association (founded by entrepreneurs Benjamin Tierny, Robin Komiwes, and Florian Le Goff) have teamed up to create the first TakeOff Conference.  The conference, which will be in English, offers passionate developers and designers the opportunity to come together and discuss the latest trends in code and design for web-based applications.  The conference organizers have already rounded up a great line up of speakers, such as Mozilla Technology Evangelist Paul Rouget, Twilio’s Head Developer Evangelist Rob Spectre, content, inclduing workshops such as “Robots need love too” and “12 steps to win at software development”, and sponsors, including Google and Twilio.  Another plus about this conference is that it’s platform and programming language agnostic, so whether your a Java, Ruby, Python, etc lover, there’s something for you .

Another great advantage of TakeOff is that with reasonble prices and an all-inclusive package, including a wide-range of conference sessions/workshops, meals, and, of course, a great party, it offers terrific value for money.  The organisers have also announced a €199 start-up (less than 2 years) and freelancer rate.  The code for this rate is ILOVEMYSPACECONFERENCE and you can even get a special €180 rate if you buy your ticket Monday 12h.

For all others the rate is €299 entry-only or €399 entry + €100 donation to the Promotion of Future Digital Technologies Association.  However, the team is currently offering a special 11%-off discount (yes, a prime number :-). This special rate will run through the the 17th of December and the promo-code is  SPACEBAGUETTE.
