What it feels like
What's a conference without inspiring talks? For DEV DAY'19 we selected skilled speakers who deliver a broad range of topics of all development aspects. They'll show us how far they can stretch the term "beyond" by getting their hands dirty on doing practice lessons, live coding and demos.
We're building the conference spaces in Faro and Berlin to be as open as possible, so you'll have a good chance to run into the speakers during the day and ask them any questions you might have come up with during their talks. In the end of the day our audiences in Faro and Berlin will vote for the exclusive Best Speaker Award, a unique trophy that will never let the winners forget that they gave a talk at DEV DAY'19.

Unity Audio - Making the best of what it's got!
What does Unity offer in terms of audio? Do you know and exploit the full potential of the tools given, and what are the limitations that you need to be aware of? After many projects as Audio Director, Composer and Sound Designer, I'd like to shine a light on the most important and/or overlooked aspects of creating an efficient audio pipeline, in order to speed up the set up process and focus on the important thing: making your game sound great. I'll share my experiences and tips regarding audio production from beginning (organising soundlists, communicating with audio talent) to end (final mix, delivery) . I'll be bringing real-world examples from a variety of games such as Mimimi Games' "Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun", Bonus Level Entertainment "FOX N FORESTS", and several other titles.
Do you have a minute? - Why a CPU does not bother but you maybe should
Learning to say no is hard. Saying no to your colleagues when they ask you if you have a minute while you are working s.th. is even harder. But knowing the biological, neuronal and social mechanisms that are involved in this "1 minute" (and it never is only that) we might consider saying "not now" more often and also refrain from asking our colleagues that question. In this talk i will make a small introduction to the inner workings of the human brain during a context switch and how it influences your work, your perception of it, your well-being and your social interaction. Additionally I will introduce tools (technical and process related ) that might reduce context switches and general distractions. Whether from the outside our your inside.
Frontend development 2020 – what's in your stack?
Current trends in NLP for finance
The talk is an overview of shallow and deep learning methods used in NLP for finance. Examples are given in Python and are presented using Jupyter. We go through topics like word2vec, sentiment analysis, text summarization, text generation, and chatbots. A docker image is provided to try the methods later at home.
Let's talk about language compilers and basic principles behind it. It sounds a bit scientific, but it can also be very interesting and probably significantly different from your routine programming tasks.
Adding Decentralized IDs and User-Owned Storage to a React App
Blockstack is an open source network and development platform that makes it easy to build scalable apps that put identity and data back in the hands of its users. With Blockstack, developers no longer need to manage an identity system or secure centralized databases of users’ information. Blockstack also launched their 'App Mining' program that rewards developers building Apps on the platform.In this talk I will give an overview of the platform and show how to integrate authentication and storage into an existing web app build with react and redux that does not need any servers (apart from static file hosting).
UX is kind. UX is smart. UX is emotion.
It is still a common misconception for many professionals in the industry (IT) to consider design to be "art", but as a UI/UX designer, I feel the need to explain that Design is NOT art. Design in general, but more specifically so, UI and UX, is probably more Tech than Art. Art is raw, personal and without rules, and that is beautiful. But design is neither raw, personal or without rules. Just like developers and fellow engineers, designers rely on guiding rules, process documentations and creative thinking to do their job. But more importantly, UX Design needs to be kind, smart and emotional. Let's understand why :)

How to promote the culture of learning
How to promote the culture of learning? The purpose is to show ways to promote the culture of learning through pair programming, tech talks, brown bag session and so on. If we want a strong team, we need to encourage this mindset and help the team to conquer that.

Things can talk in our office
In our office we try to always innovate by bringing the latest tech into it. New processes and devices are managed by a decentralized brain. In this presentation we will talk about problems of an Enterprise IoT environment and the solutions we found to tackle them. We will show you some pratical examples that can be usefull in an office environment and let you interact with our smart office system.
There is no "I" in Team, so when teaming up we should to leave our ego at the door. You are not your code! The goal of a code review is not to prove your code has no defects! So don't be that guy or girl and join me in learning the human principles of software.
Tick Tock: What the heck is time-series data?
The rise of IoT and smart infrastructure has led to the generation of massive amounts of complex data. In this session, we will talk about time-series data, the challenges of working with time series data, ingestion of this data using data from NYC cabs and running real time queries to gather insights. By the end of the session, we will have an understanding of what time-series data is, how to build streaming data pipelines for massive time series data using Flink, Kafka and CrateDB, and visualising all this data with the help of a dashboard.
How machine learning is used in processing text
Lately, it seems like everyone is talking about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning… When this hype started, I got a little stressed by all these new terms. What does it all mean for me as a developer? In this talk we will end the confusion and look at some of the ML fundamentals. We will be learning the fundamentals by building a simple sentiment classifier. A sentiment classifier can determine whether a written review was positive or negative. The goal is not to make you a data scientist, but to teach you some of the ML fundamentals. You will get a better idea of which of your problems might be solved by using ML.
All Day: Coding Challenge
This year we're proud to have platform.sh aboard who make our Coding Challenge possible. To make it really challenging, we're offering you 5 preconfigured notebooks with preinstalled platform.sh tools, IDEs and activated evaluation accounts.
The idea is to collaborate on a microservice oriented aggregation platform for news, events, repos, profiles, xcds or anything coding related piece of information you can think of. You're invited to hack along no matter your grade of experience. A platform.sh evangelist will be around all time to get you onboarded and help you with any questions.
