TAPOST conferences started in May 18, 2000 as local conference organized by the main IT companies in Latvia. The very first one had just 5 presentations and about 40 participants. Here are the presentation slides from that historical event:

In period 2000-2007 the conferences were mainly organized by the core team: Sandra Tene, Sanda Linde, Mārtiņš Gills, Vita Sniķere with many additional IT persons joining. The conference is primarily targeted to local professionals, but almost every time there are some invited speakers from abroad.

Since 2008, the main organizing is performed by Latvian IT Cluster. Since then, the TAPOST conference has become truly international.
