Unlock Your Product’s Full Potential: Mastering Your Users’ True Needs to Build the Right Product
Creating a product without seeking and relying on the true needs of your users can often be what holds a company back from achieving the level of speed and success that it has the potential for. Instead, earning a proper understanding of how to capture your users’ foundational needs, underlying motivations, and the data to reveal predictable behavior can guide your product toward the critical elements it needs to master your users’ desires, grow usage and daily engagement, and maintain a loyal user base. This talk will cover the critical and success-defining strategies on how to leverage your users’ voice and turn it into a core element of your product development philosophy. Learn how to build the right product by 1) speaking directly to your users in ways that get to the realities about what will drive them to actually use your product features, and 2) ensuring your company - whether a startup or an established corporation - has the proper methods in place to put your users’ desires efficiently and effectively into your product development.

Practical Protocol-Oriented Programming in Swift
Value types are at the core of Swift (seriously, mostly everything in the Swift standard library is a value type). But how do you avoid subclassing? That's where the power of Protocol-Oriented programming comes in. Learn how to structure your code to (almost) never subclass again! Practical everyday examples and ideas for your own code base will be included.

Fab Lab Barcelona
Anastasia Pistofidou is a freelance researcher, practitioner and educator on digital fabrication technologies, digital art installations, textiles and wearable technologies.
With a degree in Architecture AUTH Aristotle University, Thessaloniki and Master Degree from IAAC Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (Fabbots 2011) she has been working at Fab Lab Barcelona as coordinator and later as head of Advanced Manufacturing Office, specialised in hardware development, rapid prototyping and design to production, workshops, lectures and tutoring.
She developed a personal applied research line on textiles, soft architectures and innovative materials : fabtextiles.org. Experimenting with new materials and processes, combining digital fabrication techniques and crafts, her work is demonstrating how new technologies can shift the massive consumption of fast fashion to a customised, personal and local fabrication applied on education and every day life.
She is also a founding member at FirstV1sion.com and collaborates for the development of a wearable t-shirt for sports, that integrates a camera with a HD transmission system.
Her artistic public interventions are together with a multidisciplinary collective, chinos international.cc , an activist group of programmers , interaction designers, anthropologists and artists.
3d Print on Fabric [hands on]
This workshop will introduce participants to 3d printing techniques combined with textiles and patterns in order to created controlled forms, 3d volume and deformation. We will investigate in different fabrics and patterns that can create special properties on our textiles. No previous experience is needed Keywords: 3d printing, 3d modeling, 3d printed fashion, fabtextiles.
Fab Textiles Project. Open Sourcing Fashion Production for a Global Innovation Ecosystem.
Hyper connectivity through digital platforms is becoming symbiotic with the physical realm, creating synergies between bits and atoms in places like Fab Labs and Makerspaces all over the planet.
Digital fabrication laboratories are becoming incubators for innovative technologies and creators of spin off and disruptive initiatives that are being implemented in the “real” world. In Barcelona we have continuously contributing to the change of mindset on how we understand the gaps of our broken economy, and how to open the exclusiveness of means of production and networks through practical examples like: Smart Citizen, Fab Textiles, Open Source Beehives, Fab Store as well as implementations in global scale, such as the Fab City project, Fab 10 Conference, or FabLabs.io. The possibilities to conduct experimental research in a open laboratory gives the physical and mental space for innovative re-thinking, and offer the resources for visions to be materialised, tested, developed and make an active impact in people’s life, no as a linear process, but as a spiral iteration and implementation in the reality.
Fab Textiles offers a cross-disciplinary education and research platform, where production and culture through advanced technologies are making impact in the way we think and act towards the fashion industry. We work locally, while creating connected communities globally. We are not waiting for things to change, we are changing them from the ground up.

Building Swift Libraries for iOS
I'll look into the internals of a Swift library developed for iOS that heavily uses UIKit and the ObjectiveC runtime. Since those are two dependencies you can't get rid off why not make the best out of them? I'm going to look into how I could stand of the shoulders of giants to deliver a slim but flexible Swift lib with the ObjectiveC runtime blessing.

The Fiction of No Friction: Thoughts on the Future of Human-Centered Design
Designers translate human needs and desires into experiences that fulfill them. Over the last decade I've practiced human-centered design and believe it demands more than just empathy with others; it requires a deep understanding of our own selves.
In this talk I will share thoughts on the future of human-centered design, the dangers of empathizing with the needs of the few, and the importance of designing for friction and self-reflection.
I will share principles and practical tools for designing experiences that help us — practitioners and consumers — know ourselves, and the impact that this knowledge can have on customer satisfaction, delight, behavior change, even transformation.
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

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
