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.

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
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
Jon Flint is a Designer and Maker at Superflux Studios; he completed his MA in Interaction Design at Goldsmiths, University of London. He enjoys tinkering with electronics and using speculative design methods in new design and research contexts. Jon has worked extensively on the Drone Aviary and BuggyAir projects, recently done projects on the public perception of Graphene, and has conceived and led various hands-on drone-making workshops. He has exhibited work with Superflux at 21-21 Design sight in Tokyo, the Victoria and Albert Museum London, and the ZKM in Karlsruhe.
What I Cannot Create, I Do Not Understand
My talk will cover our process through two different case studies which touch on speculative design, strategy and making, through a series of built and deployed products. The first case study will look at the Drone Aviary project exploring the social, political and cultural potential of drone technology as it enters civil space. It will also examine how we have been communicating the project to different audiences in the form of inventive publications and workshops. And the next case study will look at BuggyAir (part of our bigger Internet of things platform called IOTA) an accurate mobile sensing kit that helps parents understand their children's exposure to air pollution. The title of the talk is from a quote by Richard Feynman it resonates with me because I am making and designing artefacts in the studio that have to be intuitive enough for any audience to understand. But also we find ourselves in the studio trying to work something out; from deciding what flight system to use for a quadcopter, to fabrication techniques. To do this we often ask ourselves, do we really have a real understanding of each step of the process?

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.

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?

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

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.
