Senior Frontend Developer at Noice

Daniel Yuschick (Finland)

Approach With Care - Making Digital Accessibility Feel Natural (English)
Senior Frontend Developer at Noice

Daniel Yuschick (Finland)

Let's step away from specific code examples and, instead, look at how to approach common UI patterns in accessible ways. We will learn how assistive technologies communicate these patterns and highlight the keys to making accessible decisions at the earliest stages of our design and development work. We are not building software for users, but for people — and people deserve empathy from the digital products their lives require.

Software Architect at ASML

How sand and Java are used to create the world’s most powerful chips (English)
Software Architect at ASML

Johan Janssen (The Netherlands)

Java software is used everywhere, also in the process of chip manufacturing. In my project at ASML we’re working on a relatively new analytics platform which is used to process the data from the machines. The application then visualizes the results in order to find issues or improvement areas. This information is used to change the configuration parameters of the physical machine in order to create more and better chips. I will explain, on a high level, how our applications look like and which Java technologies we use.

The Angular Reactivity Momentum in a Nutshell (English)
Principal Software Engineer at Netcetera

Blagoj Jovanov (North Macedonia)

The latest version of Angular has brought a lot of significant improvements towards enabling fine-grained reactivity of the framework. This presentation will cover the most important ones in more detail: the new control flow, angular signals and deferred views. With all these changes Angular makes big steps in becoming fully reactive. After this talk you will be able to unleash the full potential of the reactivity momentum.

Join this session to learn what are some of the best practices learned while helping customers build and scale their internal platforms.
CTO at Sofascore

Scaling: from 0 to 20 million users (English)
CTO at Sofascore

Josip Stuhli (Croatia)

A story of how our infrastructure evolved over time to accommodate an increasing number of users - from on-premise to cloud and back down. How does one make an infrastructure to handle more than a couple of users? How do you go from 100 to 1000 to 100,000 to tens of millions? What happens when due to popular demand hundreds of thousands of users hit your servers at the same time? I'll tell you a story of how a small team of people managed to move software and services from one server to two, and then to dozens on cloud and then back to on-premise.

Digital Identity & Currency in Practice (English)
Solution Architect at IBM Research

Ilie Circiumaru (Switzerland)

According to Ernst & Young, Digital ID could unlock economic value equivalent to 3 to 13 percent of GDP in 2030. To be able to unlock this great potential, during the workshop we will study different types of Digital Identity, real-world use cases and associated challenges. We will dive deep into concrete implementations and applied, but fancy cryptography. In the second part of the workshop we will see how digital identity can facilitate anonymous and in the same time auditable digital payments which stay in the core of the emerging financial instrument "Central Bank Digital Currency".
