Mendix world was absolutely amazing overall. But to get the full picture of how great it was I would love to hear from others what their answers are on the following questions:


The positives for me:


The negatives for me:


What did I get out of it:

Thanks for starting this discussion. Here’s my feedback on Mendix World 2019:

  • What were the positives?
    • All the keynotes were really well done. As a developer, I especially liked Johan’s keynote. They were brave enough to do a lot of live demos, and everything worked out great. 
    • I loved the emphasis that was placed on the SAP partnership. Coming from a company that is heavily invested in SAP, this is great to hear.
    • It also sounds like this Siemens takeover will be very beneficial for Mendix and Mendix customers.
    • The venue was great, the food was great.
  • What were the negatives?
    • I have to agree on the issue with the size of the tents/bubbles. They clearly underestimated the amount of people that would be interested in a lot of those talks. I was particularly upset about missing out on the talk on “The Future of Mobile is Offline First”. I am in a big offline mobile app project myself, and I feel like I missed out on a lot of valuable insights from that session.
  • What did you get out of it?
    • I was introduced to lots of practical use-cases for Mendix, and I will take those back to my company, and see if we can apply those ideas here, too.
    • It was great to see and feel the energy of the Mendix community. The future looks bright, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
  • What are you most excited about?
    • I loved the AR demo that was shown at the end of the Keynote. I hope to get a project started in that direction.
    • The Mendix Data Hub sounds amazing! I’m already dealing with lots of different data sources in my apps. The Hub could make things a lot easier in the future.


One last big thing - if anyone from Mendix is reading this: Please, at the very least, post the slides from all of the sessions online. It would be optimal if the speakers could post small blogs, or summaries, since a lot was said, that wasn’t on the slides. I feel like a lot of useful information will get lost, if this is not done. I already saw the blog from Han Pieter Duyvermann (and I also attended that session), and it would be great if we could get something similar from the other sessions.


Edit: Slides/Videos have been uploaded here - 



Hi everyone, 

You can find all of the slides and videos from Mendix World presentations in our content hub here: 



Hi all,

as a Mendix fan, so i did not see any update strategy for mendix Asia. and the competitor such as Outsystem is already announce the local support such as Outsystem Singapore and Thailand.

When the words mendix asia will be launched, we are waiting for this.



Im really interested in the free model!

How will this help create new MX devs, and how MX will it be used in a “for consumers” way.

How will this impact the perception of UX. (a beautiful app is not necessarily a user friendly app)




What were the positives?

Good and impressive presentation of the new options/capabilties in Mendix 8, especially the AI built in (with code correction and suggestion)

Frienly atmosphere

Catering was excellent

What were the negatives?

The release of the new options/capabilites in Mendix 8 in stages

The Partner stands were not really inviting to make contact

A lot of people were more interested in their smart phone

The presentations in the iglo's were a one time option; some were very popular that another session on the same topic was more than justified, if recorded/taped/filmed, please, put those on line.

What did you get out of it?

Mendix is opening up in the Cloud, connecting to other options

Mendix 8 is a great leap forward

What are you most excited about?

Mendix 8 (have I mentioned this already?)

The possibilities that programmers are capable of doing nowadays (AI integration)
