Context Engineering Reality as a Medium
This session will investigate hybrid transformative technologies and techniques that combine the affordances of the analogue with the digital to enable a new era of Hyper Function, Sensory Augmentation and Perceptual Adaptation. As a result of these contextual interventions and augmentations the lenses through which we experience the world are becoming more adjustable than ever.
The newly funded Horizon 2020 project '[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ http://wekit.eu/ will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’, an entirely new form of media.
Context Engineering will give us new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, providing us with a new type of self-exploration. In this session we will discuss hybrid transformative technologies to enhance our perception and help us see, hear, and feel our environments in new and enriched ways. The following questions will be explored:
-How adaptable is our perception?
-What is the impact of mnemonics and spatial literacy on memory and cognition.
-What are the biological risks of Context Engineering?
-How can hybrid technological devices, of often- prosthetic alienation, help us to reconnect to ourselves and to the surrounding environment?
-How important is immersion for overcoming and subverting the human condition?
-To what extent can content create context?
-How can we find an appropriate balance in this hybrid environment that pushes but respects the human condition?

The Digitalization Journey
When large blue chip companies approach digitalization it's often either with a sense of fear or somewhat misplaced enthusiasm and always with a lot of confusion. When making "analouge" companies successful through digitalization, the product or service is seldom the largest obstacle. This talk highlights areas within large companies that are crucial to not only succeed with digitalization, but to have it transform the whole organization.

Connected Houses [hands on]
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.
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.
Innovative Technologies and Bright Ideas. Now What ?
(Almost) Everybody has heard about a promising future where the Internet of Things will affect our lives and business. But today most of us still have questions on how it will affect our business processes, businesses and product innovation. So, how can we tackle and kick start the innovation proces within our company, how do we embrace innovative ideas and technologies as an organisation, share ideas and build them into viable products?
This presentation will attempt to demystify IoT and address these questions.

Clean Android Architecture
Most engineers start working on apps as prototypes with less focus on architecture and more focus on functionality until the point when the app's architecture or lack thereof becomes an impediment in continuing to build features into the app at a fast pace. This talk will cover experiences with Coursera's Android app, build up on issues with MVC and go on to illustrate how to start with MVC and get to a solution that fits the needs of apps.
Clean Architecture is a great way to start thinking about architecture for apps. Using SOLID principles, its a philosophy that motivates developers to think of architecture in terms of intents rather than frameworks and build software that are independent of UI, database or libraries. UI changes much faster than databases, and its important to decouple former from latter to make changes to it easily without affecting the latter, which is what this philosophy motivates. The talk will go through a way of implementing clean architecture using a modified version VIPER, and into implementation details using a sample application.
React Native: Open Source Continuous Build and Delivery
