Every year in September, BASTA! s the meeting point for Microsoft, Cloud and Web Developers! Auch in diesem Jahr freuen wir uns, Sie wieder zu treffen!

This year, BASTA! will take place under very special conditions. Even though BASTA! is by no means a small conference, it does not represent what politicians call a “big event”, so the signs are looking good.

Necessary hygiene and spacing measures will of course be taken care of by us and the Rheingoldhalle Mainz. For this purpose, we will control the number of participants.

As an additional precaution, we have created our hybrid concept. You have the choice of “visiting” the conference on-site or remotely from your home or office. All lectures and workshops are transmitted live via professional video technology.

As you can see – thanks to the innovative program and numerous networking opportunities, this year’s BASTA! provides the ideal setting for furthering your education. On-site in Mainz or digitally – the choice is yours!

On behalf of the entire BASTA! team: Sebastian Meyen (Global Content Director, S&S Media Group)


During the COVID-19 epidemic, BASTA! will be carried out under special hygiene and social distancing conditions.

For this purpose, we will control the number of participants.

In order to be accessible for all interested parties, BASTA! will be streamed live with all parallel tracks at the same time. The choice is yours: you can visit the conference on-site or follow it live remotely via video stream.

First of all: it works! Together with hygiene experts and in cooperation with the Rheingoldhalle Mainz a detailed concept will be developed for BASTA! in order to make your conference participation as safe and pleasant as possible.

The Rheingoldhalle Mainz supports this process with its special expertise, as event and congress hall.

The following measures apply to BASTA! 2020 and will, if necessary,
be adjusted in accordance with official requirements:


All contact surfaces of the Rheingoldhalle Mainz such as door handles or tables are disinfected regularly, several times a day. Special attention is paid to disinfecting catering surfaces. Disinfectants will also be provided for participants at numerous stations.


Mouth and nose protection must be worn on the way into the event rooms, in the expo area, in all public areas outside the event rooms, in restrooms, and when serving food. If you have forgotten your own face mask, a replacement will be waiting for you at the check-in. Staff at the Rheingoldhalle Mainz is also instructed to wear mouth and nose protection.


In the session, workshop, and keynote rooms as well as in the expo, seating must be at least 1.5 meters apart. This will be achieved with additional space at the venue, video transmission, and by active control of the number of participants. The expo area as well as the general traffic areas will be dimensioned so that minimum distances can be easily maintained.


The routing in the Rheingoldhalle Mainz will be designed in such a way that participants will encounter each other as little as possible when entering and leaving the venue (separate entrances and exits). Care will be taken to ensure that aisle widths are at least 2.40 meters in each case. Furthermore, floor markings will be used.


In cooperation with the Rheingoldhalle Mainz, culinary creations are served individually with the usual exceptional quality. Great importance is attached to current gastronomy hygiene regulations.

Jedes Jahr im November ist die W-JAX der Treffpunkt für Java- und Softwarearchitektur-Entwickler! Auch in diesem Jahr wollen wir uns wieder treffen — und freuen uns schon jetzt auf Sie!

Nach einer langen Phase des „Social Distancing”, bedingt durch die Corona-Pandemie, wollen wir dann wieder mit Ihnen über aktuelle Technologien reden, uns treffen, austauschen und gegenseitig inspirieren!

Die Zeichen stehen gut, dass im November wieder Fachkonferenzen stattfinden werden. Falls notwendig, werden natürlich alle erforderlichen Hygiene- und Abstandsmaßnahmen getroffen, um die Konferenz zu einem sicheren und angenehmen Ort zu machen. Ganz so, wie Sie es von der W-JAX seit jeher kennen!

Als zusätzliche Möglichkeit bieten wir übrigens an, die Konferenz remote zu „besuchen”: per professioneller Videotechnik können Sie allen Vorträgen der Konferenz von zuhause oder vom Büro aus folgen. Weitere Informationen dazu folgen in nächster Zeit.

Und natürlich hält die W-JAX auch in diesem Jahr wieder eine Fülle aktueller Inhalte für Sie bereit — mehr als 130 renommierte Speaker werden in Sessions, Workshops und Keynotes ihr Wissen an Sie weiter geben.

Dank dem innovativen Programm und den zahlreichen Networking-Gelegenheiten bildet die W-JAX den idealen Rahmen für Ihre Weiterbildung — ob vor Ort oder remote!
