Mercari Tech Conf (MTC) is a technology conference introducing the future business direction and the technological challenges of the companies of the Mercari Group to fellow engineers.
The theme of Mercari Tech Conf 2018 is Evolution. At this second annual conference we will introduce how the Mercari Group has evolved over the past year, and the changes yet to come.
In addition to various talk sessions, there will also be exhibition booths run by our various engineering teams as well as an after party with food and drinks provided. We hope all attendees can take advantage of this opportunity to socialize and network with your fellow engineers.
