Lectures:

Everything Breaks, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Change

Eric Schmidt is famous for warning that every process breaks at every order of magnitude. Change is constant and necessary to scale. As we grew from a community to a marketplace and technology platform, from a few thousand to 16 million photographers, from 4 team mates on a living room couch to 75 people in three cities and timezones, our organization has had to evolve. I will share ten lessons learned along the way

Antoni Kędracki

Workshops:

Hardware Hacking with Raspberry Pi [hands on]

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi project is to provide a small and cheap PC replacement, that can be used for teaching children basic computer science. But its able to do so much more. It has GPIO, a lot of processing power and multiple connectivity options. All this makes It a potent Arduino replacement. I would like to invite you to a hands on exploration of the Raspberry Pi GPIO port. We will start by interfacing some basic components (LEDs, buttons, etc). We will also play with a cool (and surprisingly simple) technique called Capacitive Proximity Sensing. Then, when we have learned enough, I will encourage you to let your imagination drift, and hack together a cool contraption.

Workshops:

Creating tomorrow’s cities, together [brains on]

What will tomorrow’s cities look like? How will they function? How will they be governed? How will people live in tomorrow’s cities? What services will they use? How will technology support their lives? How will they interact with it? We will try to answer some of these questions together using Futurice IoT Service Kit to create new concepts for the future connected services.

Innovation and Futures Thinking: Are You Leading or Following? [brains on]

The workshop is about the practice of Futures Thinking on the conception and design of services. Attendees will learn to identify, understand and foresee emerging needs and opportunities, and build concepts that could meet them. Using future scenarios for guidance, attendees will also learn how to transform ideas from trends into potential business and increase their chances of succeeding in the market.

Lectures:

Escape from Mars: Thank Your Architecture

Everybody involved in a mid size project or bigger is concerned about architecture.  We have all been told that a good architecture can help us to have a more agile, robust, and easier to work with application, but it is not always clear how nor the architecture everybody else is talking about.  By establishing parallelisms with Andy Weir's story, The Martian, I will go through the most relevant problems we usually find, explain how a well though out architecture can be valuable to us, and share some code that implements it.
I will use Swift in all of the code examples, because, in my opinion, it is very well suited to implement those advanced architectures. I will highlight its advantages and disadvantages compared Objective-C and other languages from an architectural point of view.
If you care:- The talk includes only minor spoilers- No, it isn't about MVC, but beyond that

Kyle Fuller




Kyle Fuller started developing Swift the very day it was announced and he hasn’t looked back since. He’s an active contributor in the open-source Swift scene with more projects than he can count.


Lectures:

End-to-end: Building a Web Service in Swift

With open source Swift, Apple has created a new range of possibilities. You can now take existing knowledge and code and apply then to web application development.
 
This talk will show you how you can reuse existing skills to build and deploy your first web service in Swift.

Workshops:

Connected Houses [hands on]

Connected houses

The workshop will let you explore all IoT tools and build step-by-step a project called ‘The-connected-houses’. This project consists of two parts, a first part will lead you to build a prototype in line with a pre-defined scenario, the second part will allow participants to build additional features which they will define in a so-called ‘Ideation’ session. The workshop is aimed at software developers, hardware makers and innovators.

Ideation

Great ideas don’t arise from splendid isolation. Structure and creativity combined however, lead to impactful result. During the workshop we will familiarise you with a 7-step methodology to formulate, structure, share and challenge your ideas to evaluate how IoT technologies will strengthen them. Team size will be 2-3 people, typically innovators or designers and the workshop duration is about 4 hours.

IoT Prototyping (Sensors, Computer and prototyping platform)

All participating teams will use an AllThingsTalk Rapid Development Kit. This prototyping tool includes an computer and a set of sensors. Next to the hardware the Kit includes access to AllThingsTalk IoT Prototyping Platform to enable you to quickly connect your devices and develop interaction between them and the Web Services of your choice using the powerful rules wizard included in the platform. Team size will be 2-3 people, hardware or software developers and the workshop duration is about 4 hours.

Professional coaches and product specialists

Product specialists, developers and coaches from AllThingsTalk will be glad to support participants with hands-on assistance when needed.

Naren Shaam

GoEuro



Born in Bangalore, India, Shaam has an MBA from Harvard University and worked in the auto industry and financial services before moving to Berlin in 2012. As a passionate traveller, it was while backpacking around Europe in 2010 after completing his studies that Shaam first became aware of the need to improve the transport booking system on the continent; and the inspiration behind GoEuro was born. Although the trip was a fantastic experience, Shaam found he was spending too much time planning the trips rather than enjoying the travel. There was no centralised, clear platform, to compare train, bus, rail, and car hire options. The travel operators were not all presented in one search engine, and each country had a different way of showing data and managing user experience, making it a very challenging process, in need of change. He decided to move to Berlin and found GoEuro


Lectures:

PODs – New organization to optimize your team improving autonomy and alignment

Trust in your people is a very important part of GoEuro’s culture and PODs structure are the best example of it and of how to improve and dynamize in processes in product and tech teams. PODs are self contained independent units with a clear objective or product ownership that delivers superior results/value to our customers. They are self sufficient and cross functional teams independent of other PODs, and contain people with all the skills and tools necessary to deliver their part of a product: from design to release and maintenance
