S, BB, X, Y, Z, a – a plethora of generations in Tech
The conflict between generations is an eternal topic. There have always been the older ones – wise and experienced – and the younger ones – demanding, naive and unmannered. Or rather: the older ones – decrepit and hampering progress – and the younger ones – creative, brave and changing the world.
But is it really? Are generational differences simply myths and harmful stereotypes – or are they facts useful for resolving conflicts and building productive cooperation, and even a better world?
So – what (if at all) are the generations of Gordon Moore, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and Greta Thunberg different from each other? What is the Culture of Mysterious Children and Reverse Mentoring? Does history go in circles with a diameter of 80 years? What do we owe to the silent generation, and what does the future hold? And above all – how does all this affect the labor market and the IT world?
Stay awhile and listen.

Impostor Syndrome in Tech
IT impostor syndrome Do you ever get that awful feeling that you’re not good enough to do your job? That you lack skills, intelligence and talent? That everyone around you knows what they’re doing, and you just slip through by luck, chance, and appearing to be better than you really are? Do you live in fear that it’s only a matter of time before someone discovers you’re just a fraud?
You are not alone.
According to research, Impostor Syndrome affects almost 90% of people working in IT. In this presentation, I will unravel this phenomenon, explore why it is so dominant in our industry, how one gets into a vicious circle and where it can lead to. I will discuss how the awareness of simple mechanisms will help you see your competencies and what tricks to use to defy the demons of insecurity.

The Art of Web API Design – How to keep sanity while creating noisy applications
Web applications don’t talk with front-end and database only anymore. They increasingly often talk with each other. In order not to get crazy in this communication mess, it’s good to take a look at many aspects of creating web API. Let’s talk about Morville, Fielding, Richardson, resources, behavior, relations, parameters, headers, versioning, errors, security, performance health, and business. A bunch of tips on how to make consumers of our API happy. Warning: may contain traces of snakes and camels.
