Blockchain, the Decentralised Workforce and what it means for the Future of Work

Andrew Spence, Workforce Futurist

More info

There are many ways to earn and learn in the 2020s – from labourers to playbourers, carers to sharers, preachers to teachers.

The State Of The Web

Jeremy Keith, Web Stuff Do-er @ Clearleft

More info

The World Wide Web has come a long way in its three decades of existence. There’s so much we can do now with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: animation, layout, powerful APIs… we can even make websites that work offline! And yet the web isn’t exactly looking rosy right now. The problems we face aren’t technical in nature. We’re facing a crisis of expectations: we’ve convinced people that the web is slow, buggy, and inaccessible. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There is no fate but what we make. In this perspective-setting talk, Jeremy will take you on a journey to the past, present, and future of web design and development. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and by the end, you’ll be ready to make the web better.

Intuitive APIs and Developer Education

Bear Douglas, Director of Developer Relations @ Slack

More info

API standards, from SOAP to REST to GraphQL, have evolved to meet the needs of API providers and developer consumers. They make APIs “intuitive” by making them predictable. When product designs bump up against the constraints of standards, you can choose to force a fit or break from convention and invest in educating developers about your choices. Through case studies (incl. Facebook’s Open Graph, Slack’s workspace apps project) Bear will examine the tradeoffs, consequences, and some learnings about how to get your developer community to come along with you.

Running Design Sprint for Product Discoveries: Things I wish I learned Earlier

Luky PrimadaniStrategic Designer BCG Platinion

One of the widely-known tools to facilitate Product Discovery is Design Sprint. It’s a highly structured step-by-step approach to tackling big challenges, especially within digital product development. The concept is highly collaborative and customer-centric to find new opportunities and test assumptions earlier when defining a product strategy. However, in reality, there are challenges when applying it, especially in a different organizational setup. What are they? And how can we adapt to the challenges and at the same time enable teams to continuously have product discoveries?

Product Design for Devs, by Devs

Tiago Franco, CEO @ Imaginary Cloud
André Santos, Senior Software Engineer @ Imaginary Cloud

More info

Developing Web and Mobile apps is a complex endeavour where most companies follow inconsistent and inefficient processes. By over-focusing on the shiny design or on that amazing feature, most of the time the teams running the process have developers only as an after-though, meaning everything is pretty much set in stone before we get the Dev Teams in, leading to poor design and implementation. In this talk, Tiago and André will explore how to avoid this common pitfall and involve Developers from the get go and create quicker and seamless implementations.

Event Sourcing is an event-centric approach to building applications with persistent state. Even though it’s not exactly new, it’s still a hot topic in software development. So is the actor model, a concurrency model based on message-passing, popularised by Erlang and its JVM counterpart – Akka framework. Akka Persistence naturally combines the two approaches. Together with other parts of the Akka family, it gives us superpowers for building resilient, scalable services.

How we designed a PM school for non-PMs: Why we need more newly trained PMs

André Marquet, Creator of Productized Conference @ Productized

Co-organized with:
Productized
More info

The rise of Amazon, Google, Uber, and many other scaleups over the past several years has put a new light on the role of the Product Manager (PM) and made it in high demand in the tech jobs market. However, the number of professional PMs is not keeping up with the demand from this growing trend in product-led companies. What if we could train many more non-PMs with the necessary skills and tactics to become functional PMs? Pretty much the same way, that coding schools kicked started this movement for developers a few years ago. Then many more companies would be able to satisfy their needs with competent, trained in the basics, rather newly minted PMs.
Which techniques could these freshly trained PMs apply to set the strategy and execution of all product-related activities inside startups and more established companies alike? Establishing a product vision, product innovation, caring for product development, interfacing product design, and helping to build product-led organizations. In this talk, André Marquet, creator of Productized, argues that we need to train a new generation of PMs and explains how he and his team have designed an open-sourced curriculum to train new PMs, in partnership with leading business, and coding schools, having already trained dozens of new PMs, and how companies can embrace APM roles as a way for our industry to keep developing, by training more professionals on the job.
With practical examples, this talk will take you on a journey, on how leading companies are facilitating the training of new PMs delivering more value to the tech ecosystem as a whole while arguing on the importance of giving formal training to create a common education standard for the PM community.

Consent vs Consensus: how it affects decision-making

Pietro Basso, iOS Engineer @ N26

More info

A consensus-based decision-making process usually leads to amending the proposer’s decision by making someone happy. It’s also often assumed and implicit. Sometimes it can be beneficial, but it’s not always the case. In this session, Pietro will talk about how the future of an organization would be if it was focused on consent (i.e. there are no valid objections) instead of consensus (i.e. we are all of the same opinion), using real world examples from the developer perspective, in order to build it in the present with that in mind.

The idea is to, looking to (but not only) my example, make the audience perceive that our career can be managed based in simple things: defining short and medium term goals, making intermediate evaluations and choose your next move, based on the gap (where do I´m and where I did define to be?)…but…never wait too much to decide. On the other side, the idea of “…if you think you will be fully prepared to apply for the next job, them this is not the right one for you…” will be explored, to show the importance of knowing your strengths, but also your limitations. Finally, analyze the portuguese case, specifically, the quality and flexibility of our students, to motivate young professionals to “explore, before decide”.

When approaching distributed architectures, questions start to pop: “What cloud provider should I use?”, “What technological stack to pick?”, “How do I develop in a large-scale environment?”, “How do I keep my data secure?” There is a myriad of possible answers to these questions. Different use-cases, different needs dictate different approaches. Nevertheless, all of them have in common the fact that they all require a site to deploy artifacts, a set of access rules to enforce security across all tiers, strong and reliable quality assurance, and fast, dependable, automated delivery.

The Psychology of UX

Fábio Pereira, Innovation Executive @ RedHat

More info

35 thousand! That’s the average number of decisions a person makes every day. Imagine if you could hack the brain and the mind, these complex decision-making systems.

For decades, scientists have been studying so we can better understand how it’s possible not only to predict but also influence decisions through interventions on the environment where decisions are made. Yes, it’s possible! And Fabio will teach you the secrets behind it.

Shielding applications from a microservice architecture

Hugo Raimundo, Head of Architecture @ Sky

More info

When we’re building a (very!) large-scale platform, with an incredibly high number of requests per second, we usually adopt a fragmented approach. This also creates a much more complex, yet manageable and ideally clearer architecture and system. On top of all this, we build the client applications, but how do we keep the applications performant and ready for this large of a scale? How do the applications contribute to it and how do we guarantee that these are not exposed to the high complexity of the systems we create? In this talk, Hugo will attempt to give you a glimpse into the highly complex challenges they face as well as the alternatives and solutions they’ve found to address them.

There will be resistance on many levels, making this a difficult endeavour. This talk will focus on how product teams need to implement strategies that allow for innovation within established company cultures in order to deliver innovative products.
