  • How thinking small is changing software development big time

    The world is changing fast. More precisely, the world is changing at increasing speed. This means things that were not possible five years ago come into reach. Incumbent organizations need to adapt fast to keep up with new competitors that use new technologies easier, faster and better than they do. As a result, every aspect of software changes towards smaller. Even smaller teams or even micro-teams, less management, flatter organizations, even shorter cycles, and smaller components.

  • Practical A11Y for Web Apps

    Accessibility (A11Y) is an often misunderstood topic by developers. We also tend to not see the importance and if we see it, we struggle on getting started because it’s such broad topic. What can we do to improve?

    In this talk Bob will explain web accessibility and why it’s such a critical part of our job.

    He will explain how to get started in testing and improving your apps using tools and methods that are market standard.

    There will be real-world examples from his daily job and he’ll share how to tackle common pitfalls.

    After this session, you’ll have enough knowledge to start fixing your front-end’s most low hanging A11Y issues.

  • The Future of Real-time | Offline | Data

    Complexity, and the consistent attempts to reduce complexity, are at the core of the evolution of technology. As technology evolves, we then find harder problems to solve and are presented with new challenges. In the client space, we’ve seen innovation that has addressed how we deal with modern application concerns like real-time and offline data while at the same time GraphQL has continued to gain in market share.

    What happens when we take the advancements that GraphQL has introduced as a paradigm and combine them with a mental model that all data should be local and offline first, with eventual consistency to your database as a second thought? In this talk, I’ll talk about a data store paradigm that allows developers to work with a single, local database and source of truth, and the idea that you should not have to make more than one write action to have (eventual) consistency across the client and server.

  • GraphQL Without a Database

    Your frontend developers are pushing to get started with GraphQL, but you don’t have the backend capacity to migrate your existing REST APIs to GraphQL? Or you want to have a GraphQL API next to your existing endpoints that are based on REST, without having to rewrite all your controllers? In this talk I’ll show how to wrap existing REST APIs into one single GraphQL endpoint on both the client and server side. This allows you to access the power of GraphQL without having to change any of your existing code or connect to a database.

  • Team First

    Producing high quality work is dependent on a well-organized team, especially in a high-pressure environment like an ad agency or a production studio. At a certain scale almost every team struggles with cultural differences, perceived pressure from management or misaligned definitions of success. Over the years Tim has learned that you are more successful if you understand what motivates people and he created a framework (yes, he's a developer) to deal with projects in complex environments that he calls "Team First".
