After having quickly reviewed the basic concepts upon which Montecarlo event generators are built, I will explain how NLO QCD corrections can be included in these tools, focusing mostly on the powheg method. I will then show how a more recent idea (MiNLO) has allowed to generate events with simultaneous NLO accuracy in different jet multiplicities, and how it can be applied to get NNLO accurate predictions matched to parton showers.
