The Orbital Perspective

Humanity faces an unprecedent crisis that threatens all life of Earth. Desert storm fighter pilot and NASA astronaut Ron Garan will address this head-on in his keynote: The Orbital Perspective. Ron will take us on an extraordinary journey through outer space and inner space. From this perspective, Ron will map out a viable path forward - to solve our crisis, we need a giant leap in humanity's evolutionary process, and we must embrace the true nature of our interdependence with this fragile planet and all life within its biosphere. Ron will show us how to discover our purpose, detoxify our divisive culture and become a "white blood cell" in a growing immune response to heal our world. Ron will present a blueprint to build a restorative and positive future for all.

Writing code for humans

As programmers, we tend to brush away usability as something that designers should worry about. However, every time we write code that will be used by others — or ourselves in the future! — we are creating a UI. A UI whose usability can be vastly improved by the very same UX principles that are used to improve visual interfaces. In this light-hearted talk you will learn how to think to make your APIs easy to learn and fast to use. Its takeaways are distilled from Lea’s experience reviewing proposals for Web APIs as a W3C TAG member, as well as creating & managing dozens of successful open source projects for over a decade with thousands of merged pull requests.

Building Privacy Into iOS and macOS Apps

A lot of time Privacy of my data as a user is not a priority for Developers. Whether it’s my calendar, my contacts, my location, I want as a user to be able to use an app without all of those attacks in my privacy. I want to summarize some things an iOS developer should do to ensure the most critical user can still use my app in some regards, and not just say “I need all your information”. This is the beauty of iOS, being able to fine grain (although not enough) so let’s do this all together, as a beautiful community concerned by Privacy. We’ll review some very old APIs and focus on the last changes in iOS.

The Modern DXP - How Jamstack will change the world

This talk showcases the Digital Experience Platform of the future. I will outline how we used to build DXP's and what needs to change to modernize them. We are ready to take on (and out-perform) the status quo in enterprise software. We can now build global scale platforms and e-commerce sites with the tools we love: Jamstack, Vue.js, React, CDN edge, serverless and more. The old school dusty enterprise software that has historically been used to shape your online shopping experience is no more. The time is now for Jamstack!

SaaS Rebels - An Explanation on Why "on-premises" is Still Alive and Here to Stay

"What do you mean, you’re not a SaaS company? I don’t get it.” It’s not too much to say that the world moved to SaaS, or at least software companies did. It would make no sense today to create an “on-premises” startup for technical or business purposes. Despite this transition, we cannot deny that the “on-premises” is still alive and forecasted to stay. Moving to SaaS can be a tough decision for large companies, especially for technical, security, and political reasons. Naturally, these same reasons represent a great opportunity for “on-premises” startups. Of course, there are good reasons for moving to SaaS, which means it can be very challenging if you decide not to. However, this is what Dataiku did. During this talk, we will discuss the reasons why software companies can choose “on-premises” deployment, how they can deploy it, what obstacles they may face, and how Dataiku tackled these challenges.

State machines with Kotlin Flow

If we look at Finite State Machines (FSM), we can find a number of examples everywhere in the world that surrounds us. There are vending machines, subway entrance turnstiles, heating systems, self-driving cars, elevators, etc., but also many, many cases of UI frameworks like Android's UI lifecycle (arguably a finite state machine). The concept of FSM and its mathematical computational model are very interesting to implement in many programming languages. With Kotlin's recent investment in asynchronous programming tools, it seemed like a good time to look into it.

How a tech startup planted (almost) 100 million trees

The search engine Ecosia is not only the biggest European search engine but also one of the biggest tree planting organizations on the planet.

Prioritizing Technical Debt as if Time and Money Matters

Prioritizing technical debt is a hard problem as modern systems might have millions of lines of code and multiple development teams — no one has a holistic overview. In addition, there's always a trade-off between improving existing code versus adding new features so we need to use our time wisely. What if we could mine the collective intelligence of all contributing programmers and start making decisions based on information from how the organization actually works with the code? In this presentation, you'll see how easily obtained version-control data uncovers the behavior and patterns of the development organization. This language-neutral approach lets you prioritize the parts of your system that benefit the most from improvements so that you can balance short- and long-term goals guided by data. The specific examples are from real-world codebases like Android, the Linux Kernel, .Net Core Runtime and more. This new perspective on software development will change how you view code.

How to build, manage and retain a killer team in Deep Learning

With close to 60 data scientists and deep learning engineers (an the same amount of developer), preligens own one of the largest Deep Learning team in France. Since our founding 5 year ago, we learnt what to do (and not do) to build a tiers 1 team in AI and Deep Learning, how to retain talent and how to grow them. In this talk we will share some experience and feedback whereas they are tech or managerial and maybe help you navigate in the complexity of the AI talent world.

Mind hygiene: taking care of your brain in the age of digital distraction

This is an interactive neuroscience-based talk on how technology changes our behaviour and affects our health, thinking, decision-making and creativity if we don’t manage it properly. Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina will share practical tips on how to take charge of technology, and not allow it drive your agenda or thinking. She will also discuss social responsibility of developers.

At the crossroad of Crypto and Security: A dev insider view

By now, everyone has heard of cryptocurrencies and, by extension, of blockchains. In some shape or another, they have been a topic of discussion for the last ten years. Whether they are seen as the future of payment or a scam following the many security breaches, cryptocurrencies are shaking things up and cannot be ignored. But what does it look like from the inside? How is your everyday-normal-dev navigating these ever changing topics? Join us for a glimpse of the beautiful world of hardware security at the service of cryptocurrencies, and how it makes our day-to-day as developers at Ledger both exciting, and surprisingly complex.

Introduction to audio programming

Audio and music are everywhere in our everyday life: at home, at work, when we go shopping, in our cars etc. The vast majority of the apps on our mobile devices use audio in some way, and yet, most of us programmers are not aware of the ins and outs of audio programming. In this workshop, we will introduce you to the challenges audio programmers face daily. The objective of the workshop will be to code simple audio applications in C/C++ to play around with sound, music and audio effects

There and Back Again - a Web Tale

The core technologies of the Web: HTML, CSS, SVG and the DOM APIs always have a hot new thing, something coming soon that will change everything. That is as true today as it was 20 years ago. But sometimes, these hot things look sort of familiar. And other times, a particular technology takes decades to finally become mainstream and reliable. Why is that, and are we condemned to reinvent the wheel constantly? Drawing on his role as W3C Strategy Specialist on the Core Web, as well as two decades of Web standardization experience, Chris Lilley will take us on a tour of the past, present and future of the core Web Platform.

10:55
11:35

Building an OpenAPI from Typescript

The web is built on top of RESTful APIs. The way we build Apps usually involves consuming a RESTful API that we communicate with over HTTP. We design contracts for those APIs to define the way they work and, to have a formal spec for them, the Swagger IDL was proposed back in 2011 to become the OpenAPI Spec in 2016. At Vercel we love NodeJS and we built almost every service in our system on top of it. We felt the need of having a spec for our API but of course, we never wanted to write it manually. There is almost no support to auto-generate an OpenAPI Spec in the NodeJS ecosystem but since the wide adoption of static typing, it became possible to write a generator for this purpose. In this talk, we will explore the reasoning behind having an OpenAPI Spec at Vercel and what are exactly the problems it solves. We will see how we built a static analyser tool that allowed us to infer a Spec from the implementation of our APIs and how we integrated it using Vercel in our workflow to get alerted on API changes.

11:40
12:25

Design patterns for application resiliency

We have traditionally built robust architectures by trying to avoid mistakes or failures in production, or by testing parts of the system in isolation. However, modern techniques take a very different approach: embracing failure instead of trying to avoid it. Resilient architectures enhance observability, leverage well-known patterns such as graceful degradation, timeouts and circuit breakers but also new patterns like cell-based architecture and shuffle sharding. In this session, will review the most useful patterns for building resilient software systems and especially show the audience how they can benefit from the patterns.

Learnings of an event-based serverless application to broadcast real-time traffic alerts

RATPDev runs multiple transit networks worldwide. They are in need for a single solution to allow transit operators to easily broadcast traffic alerts over multiple communication channels (Twitter, Facebook, email, SMS, Google Maps…). Unpredictability and high throughput make it a perfect fit for a serverless architecture. In this talk, I’ll share my personal experience during the development of this application, the challenges I faced when understanding serverless paradigms compared to a classic infrastructure. I’ll also go in details on the implementation of this application using an Event Sourcing architecture implementation with AWS using DynamoDB and EventBridge.

No way, JOSE!

Is your first thought when thinking about cryptography, “nope, that’s not for me!”? There’s no need to. When explained with simple examples, you can see the basics are not that complicated. The JavaScript Object Signing and Encryption, or JOSE for short is a framework that helps us deal with encryption. It describes ways to securely transfer data either signed (JWS) or encrypted (JWE). Let’s take a leap of faith and explore the wonderful world of cryptography together, shall we? In this talk, I will try to explain the basics of encryption and hashing through simple examples. We’ll look into how the JOSE standard can help us with encrypted content on the web using JSON Web Encryption (JWE) and JSON Web Keys (JWK). The audience does not need any specific knowledge about cryptography as this talk will go through the basics. Some JavaScript knowledge can be useful but not necessary as code examples will be simple and explained.

Mobile Development, what’s wrong with you ?

You may often wonder which technology is better for your mobile customer needs. You are right, there is plenty of amazing solutions: programming languages, frameworks, best practices, design patterns… Finding the right solution can often lead you to huge headaches and it won't get any easier. So what is the future of mobile development? On which framework should you invest? What are the most used tools? What is the most appreciated solution in developer communities? Actually, these questions are not what you're really supposed to dig into.

Let's Stop Making Each Other Feel Stupid

We work in an industry where we judge one another constantly for being stupid. And yet, there are a million different paths through software development. The skills we don’t need now are necessarily forgotten, or delegated to someone else. And that’s fine. Instead of judging people for their ignorance, let’s help them to feel excited about all the new things they’ll discover. Instead of saying “For God’s sake, you don’t know that?” let’s say “Fantastic! Lucky you. You get to learn something. What can I do to help?”

11:40
12:25

The culture of process

If we call developers “resources”, they get to call managers (us!) “overhead”. But managers are overhead, and bad process is a tax on efficiency (and effectiveness). When process is good, it is indistinguishable from culture. Let’s talk about a different mindset to process - process as a tool for creating change.

Fearless Deploys on Friday Evening. Wait; what?!

Do you know how some software development teams are afraid to deploy their code to production, and they have to “pray” after each release that it has not so many and not so critical bugs? Do you know how some business owners are embarrassed to enter the new market because the software their teams produce is so unstable that it’s frantically just a joke?In this talk, you’ll learn how to properly apply practices such as TDD, continuous refactoring, integration, and delivery, get and give feedback on the code, and how you can deploy on Friday evening without fear of being called by your angry CTO to fix broken software over the weekend.

Beyond the cockpit

When you accept the responsibility of leading a pair of Rafale over enemy territory, no excuses are accepted in the debriefing room. During the flight you must be all you can be. But in a work environment where you are over saturated with information, how do you perform efficiently individually and as a team ? It took the aviation community decades to develop our current methods. They have been proven in combat. They have saved lives. The best part ? They work beyond the cockpit. In our exponential world, learn how to stay "ahead of the aircraft", follow, lead and win.

Developer and Companies, Work Anywhere, Be Protected

The World of work has completely changed with Internet. As a company, you can now work with a freelance on the other side of the globe. As a developper Freelance, based in France for instance, you now receive all the offers from the other countries. You want to invoice and you also want to get social protection. You don’t want to spent more then 5 to 10 minutes managing that and you want to have proper payslip, retirement pension, insurances, fiscal and social charges, etc. You are moving to see the client ? Are you covered ? How can you set up the Commercial and Social protection you need, and start working with your client that called you half an hour ago ? Discover a new way to manage all this, as fast as you and your client need it. We spent 10 years trying to eliminate all the points that prevent companies to work with freelances. We want to create a new workstyle that is called OpenWork. And we want to share that with you through this conference.

Cracking the hiring process - Demystifying developer hiring best practices

I’m both a Software Engineer and a Hiring Manager. And as such, I know what it’s like to make a hiring decision based on a couple of hours of interview with a person in front of me. In this talk, I will share the insights I’ve gathered through hundreds of interviews on how you can both design delightful hiring processes for developers and better approach interviewing as a Tech person. This presentation is valuable for hiring managers seeking to improve their recruitment process, but also for developers curious about getting involved in hiring their future teammates or simply understanding what goes on behind the scenes.
