This year's theme is "Head, Hands and Heart".
Heart connects between Head and Hands, and then they create something new.
The word “Head” symbolizes information processing out of them such as Big data, data science or AI.
The word “Hands” symbolizes implementation or physical area solutions such as development methodologies like agile development, mob programming, IoT or robotics.
It’s only the "Heart" that connects data or knowledge to implementation or physical area.
