Don't Solve Problems, Eliminate Them
Kent C. Dodds (Kent C. Dodds Tech LLC)
Humans are natural problem solvers and we're good enough at it that we've survived over the centuries and become the dominant species of the planet. Because we're so good at it, we sometimes become problem seekers too–looking for problems we can solve. Those who most successfully accomplish their goals are the problem eliminators. Let's talk about the distinction between solving and eliminating problems with examples from inside and outside the coding world.

Qwik a Novel Approach to the Fastest Possible Time-to-Interactive by Delaying JavaScript Without Sacrificing Interactivity
Misko Hevery (Builder.io)
Builder.io provides visual headless CMS for eCommerce websites. Making sites load fast with the current set of technologies is essentially out of reach for most. Builder.io is working on a new open-source framework that focuses on time to interact as a top priority. The unique approach allows for rendering sites on the server and delaying downloading of the code until the user wants to interact with the page. This approach results in the highest Google PageSpeed Insights scores.

Modern Front End Routing
Eduardo San Martin Morote
When we develop a Single Page Application, we have to use a Router. It's a common use case, yet every single framework has its own router, React even has multiple ones you can choose from. And even though each framework is different and every router takes a different approach, they all share quite a few principles. Understanding those helps us handle routing in our SPA because behind all those simple, different APIs provided by framework-specific routers, a more complex architecture is hidden from us.

Luring Devs by Cutting Down the Time to First "Hello World"
Aldin Kiselica (Infobip)
Developers know how they like their integrations: functional, well documented, testable, smooth, easy to use, etc. And yet, what often happens is that the ones among the people who are developing for other developers, many somehow manage to miss a number of those important things due to any of the potential reasons. My team is not there just yet either, but we are fully focused on getting there. This is a talk about how we managed to minimize the time needed to get to that first "Hello World", or in this case specifically, the time needed to have some of our API methods running in close to no time. Hopefully, might even help you get an idea of how to improve some of your own processes.

The Third Age of JavaScript
Shawn Wang (Temporal)
The way we write JavaScript in 2030 will be completely different than in 2020. Here's why: the slow death of IE11 and rollout of ES Modules will converge toward a new generation of JavaScript tooling. These tools are faster, typesafer, and polyglot, leading to both a better developer and user experience. Change is afoot!

Rescue the Dead Horse
Eva Ferreira (Money Button)
Tech debt comes as free credit for our lack of experience, wrong deadlines or simply a mix of bad decisions; but no matter how it gets there, the cost is usually on accessibility. The first to sacrify is the one tool that allows all people to surf the web without constraints. How do we tackle a technical debt for accessibility? Where do we begin? How fast and far can we get? In this talk we will go through real-world examples on how to begin fixing the most important technical debt out there.

⭐️Igniting Innovation in an Organization: Options for Leaders
Greg Fisher (Algebra MBA)
Organizations need to innovate to survive and thrive. But generating and implementing novel and useful entrepreneurial ideas in an organization is not easy; it is much easier to just keep doing the same thing that you have always done. So what options do leaders have for driving innovation and entrepreneurship in their organizations? In this presentation, I explore four distinct ways that leaders can foster innovation and entrepreneurship within an existing organization.

TigerGraph: Connecting the World
Bruno Simic (Tigergraph)
Why graph - because it's how we think! Graph is a natural way to represent all kinds of things, ideas, and how they relate to one another, delivering more value and better results. Analyze relationships deeper into the data to find hidden patterns, connect all datasets to uncover undisclosed relationships. All this in real time.

Making Application Logic Visually Collaborative
David Khourshid (Stately)
Logic is much more than just code. It is the user flows, the diagrams, the user stories, and the business logic that are shared with developers, designers, project managers, and other stakeholders. In this talk, we'll explore tools and techniques for unlocking application logic and making it accessible to everyone, in a highly collaborative, visual way. With software modeling concepts and techniques like state machines, statecharts, and the actor model, even the most complex logic can be visualized, understood, simulated, and even automatically tested by the entire team, preventing bugs and drastically reducing the cost of development.

How Pandemic Made Us Remote-Friendly
Darko Zelic (Freshbooks)
We opened European FreshBooks offices in January and February of 2020 and, shortly after, the whole world changed. In the middle of a global pandemic, we built several remote, high performing engineering teams. Timezone differences, being completely remote, affinity distance and a general feeling of isolation everyone felt made challenges we had in front of ourselves even harder and even more apparent. I will share our learnings alongside some forward-looking thoughts.

Don't Solve Problems, Eliminate Them
Kent C. Dodds (Kent C. Dodds Tech LLC)
Humans are natural problem solvers and we're good enough at it that we've survived over the centuries and become the dominant species of the planet. Because we're so good at it, we sometimes become problem seekers too–looking for problems we can solve. Those who most successfully accomplish their goals are the problem eliminators. Let's talk about the distinction between solving and eliminating problems with examples from inside and outside the coding world.

Full End-to-End Testing for Your HTML Email Workflows
Gleb Bahmutov (Mercari)
Every time a new user registers for your service, your application probably sends a confirmation email. How does that email look in the user's browser? How does it look on a mobile screen? And most importantly: does it work?

In this presentation, I will show the full end-to-end open-source testing procedure for validating HTML emails. We will test the email functionality, accessibility, and visual look and style to ensure that our users are not silently dropping out due to a broken email subsystem.

It’s been a long, four year journey from defining them in the spec (June 2015!) till they could be used in Node.JS (November 2019). Why did it take so long? What were the major hurdles? What does the migration path look like? Are they really better than CommonJS Modules? What is in store for the future? And most importantly: can I start the migration?

Building a Serverless Compute Platform with AWS and TypeScript -
Tomasz Lakomy (Stedi)
Have you ever used a SaaS and thought: "They don't have this one feature I want, I wish I could implement it myself" (e.g. edit tweets)? Well, we did, and that's why we gave our customers an escape hatch of being able to add functionality we haven't implemented (yet!). In this talk I'd like to present how a small team of 4 engineers built a serverless compute platform by combining serverless AWS services in a matter of weeks, not years. You'll learn what are the key challenges of building a system like this, what to avoid and how we securely run users' code. And the best part? The whole system - frontend, backend, infrastructure is all built in a single programming language - TypeScript.

WebAssembly is not Just for the Web
Nic Jackson (HashiCorp)
How many times have you found a great library, perfect for your needs but written in a different language? Or have you ever encountered an issue where someone would love to contribute a feature to your application but program in a different language to you? Creating libraries that are linkable from another language, or enabling the extensibility of your application in multiple different languages, can be seen as the holy grail of application development. WebAssembly presents an incredible opportunity to solve these problems by providing a common compile-time target and system interface. In this talk, you will learn some of the core concepts of WebAssembly (Wasm) and the WebAssembly System interface (Wasi) and leverage them from your applications to link foreign language libraries and provide a pluggable architecture not limited by language choice.

Zero-downtime Deployment on Kubernetes
Nicolas Frankel (Hazelcast)
Kubernetes allows a lot. After discovering its features, it’s easy to think it can magically transform your application deployment process into a painless no-event. For Hello World applications, that is the case. Unfortunately, not many of us do deploy such applications day-to-day because we need to handle state. Though it would be much easier to have stateless apps, and despite our best efforts in this direction, state is found in (at least) two places: sessions and databases. You need to think keeping the state while stopping and starting application nodes. In this talk, I’ll demo how to update a Spring Boot app deployed on a Kubernetes cluster with a non-trivial database schema change with the help of Hazelcast, while keeping the service up during the entire update process.

Building Full Stack dApps with React, Ethers.js, Solidity, and Hardhat
Nader Dabit (Edge & Node)
Decentralized apps (dApps) are continuing to gain momentum in the industry. Blockchain developers are also now some of the highest paid in the entire industry. Building decentralized apps is a paradigm shift that requires a different way of thinking than apps built with traditional centralized infrastructure, tooling, and services. As a front-end developer, I initially had a hard time understanding this entirely new (to me) ecosystem, how everything fit together, and the mental model needed to understand and be a productive full stack developer in this space. In this talk, I'll give a comprehensive overview of the space, how you can get started building these types of applications, and the entire tech stack broken apart then put back together to show how everything works.

The Eternal Sunshine of the Zero Build Pipeline
Matthias Dugue (‹div›RIOTS)
For many years, we have migrated all our devtools to Node.js for the sake of simplicity: a common language (JS/TS), a large ecosystem (NPM), and a powerful engine. In the meantime, we moved a lot of computation tasks to the client-side thanks to PWA and JavaScript Hegemony. So we made Webapps for years, developing with awesome reactive frameworks and bundling a lot of dependencies. We progressively moved from our simplicity to complex apps toolchains. We've become the new Java-like ecosystem. It sucks. It's 2021, we've got a lot of new technologies to sustain our Users eXperience. It's time to have a break and rethink our tools rather than going faster and faster in the same direction. It's time to redesign the Developer eXperience. It's time for a bundle-free dev environment. It's time to embrace a new frontend building philosophy, still with our lovely JavaScript. Introducing Snowpack, Vite, Astro, and other Bare Modules tools concepts!

Deployments and Disasters: an incident management RPG
Josip Antolis (Infobip)
Any software system will eventually experience a degradation, outage or a similar incident. Depending on the type of business you're in this can lead to a loss of revenue and clients, or even have legal repercussions. That is why it's important to have a good incident management process for resolving incidents, reporting on their impact and preventing them from happening again. In this talk I'll start from my personal experience with challenges in establishing the incident management process in a company with Infobip’s scale. I’ll describe how I used gamification principles to built a tabletop role-playing game Deployments and Disasters as a tool for incident management training. I’ll show you how the game works, how it helps players prepare for real world incidents and how you can use it to improve the incident management processes in your own business.

Speeding up Build Times with DPR in Next.js
Ekene Eze (Netifly)
The Jamstack way of building the web is highly optimized for speed and performance and we love it. This is because the assets required in your site will be pre-generated at build time and readily available to your users. But what happens when your site grows and you have to pre-generate thousands of pages and assets? your build times will skyrocket. This will consequently impact productivity and increase cost. In this session, we’ll look at DPR - a new approach that aims to reduce build times for teams and individuals building large sites on the Jamstack.

Until things start getting bigger. One team becomes multiple teams, goals and requirements multiple beyond count and suddenly performance and accessibility show hard to overcome bottlenecks. How do we beat those growing pains? There isn't a single answer, but Jamstack can definitely help. Maintainability and complexity are not opposites.

You Can Do it, Put your Backend to it!
Adrienne Tacke (MongoDB)
Isn’t it funny how we dread implementing the basic parts of our app? Authentication, authorization, state changes; there’s so much that’s expected of our applications today, yet we often procrastinate on those pieces. 😅 Luckily, implementing these parts aren’t as difficult as many think and I want to show that in this session! In this demo extravaganza:
- I’ll guide the audience as I add these pieces to an application step-by-step.
- We’ll learn how to create functions and triggers through MongoDB Realm to handle state changes.
- We’ll explore how to implement basic authentication and authorization to secure our app and handle different user types.
- Time permitting, we'll interact with the demo!

By the end of this talk, the audience should be able to interact with this demo and understand how each part works!

Vitaly Friedman (Smashing Magazine)
With HTTP/3, Service Workers, Jamstack, PWA, TypeScript, Web Assembly, AVIF, Variable Fonts, CSS Container Queries and clamp(), Client Hints and Resource Hints, CSS Subgrid and SVG2, we all are still trying to figure out just the right strategy for building websites and apps efficiently. We want to use all of these technologies and smart processes, but how can we use them efficiently, and how do we achieve it within a reasonable amount of time? What’s the the best way to compress text, optimize images, deliver and contain third-party scripts, conduct A/B testing, manage web fonts, build layouts, streamline delivery of CSS/JS, serve static assets and architect a flexible and maintainable design system? And where would we even start refactoring and re-organizing our legacy code base, or move to ES Modules in production, or use Web workers or Webassembly? Oh my, in the workshop, we’ll cover it all. In this workshop, Vitaly Friedman, co-founder of Smashing Magazine and front-end/UX consultant, will be looking into the state of front-end in 2021, with new challenges and new opportunities, and how we can utilize all of those wonderful shiny web technologies we have available today. We’ll also talk about dealing with legacy browsers and will cover a few dirty little techniques that might ensure that your websites and apps will stay relevant, flexible and accessible in the years to come. Beware: you won’t be able to unlearn the things that you’ll learn in the workshop! This workshop will explore:

- Component-based workflow and tooling,
- Localization and internationalization,
- Image and video optimization, techniques, tooling and formats (AVIF),
- Bulletproof web font loading strategies and techniques, along with variable fonts and how to use them,

New Front-End Adventures, 2021 Edition (part 2/3)
Vitaly Friedman (Smashing Magazine)
With HTTP/3, Service Workers, Jamstack, PWA, TypeScript, Web Assembly, AVIF, Variable Fonts, CSS Container Queries and clamp(), Client Hints and Resource Hints, CSS Subgrid and SVG2, we all are still trying to figure out just the right strategy for building websites and apps efficiently. We want to use all of these technologies and smart processes, but how can we use them efficiently, and how do we achieve it within a reasonable amount of time? What’s the the best way to compress text, optimize images, deliver and contain third-party scripts, conduct A/B testing, manage web fonts, build layouts, streamline delivery of CSS/JS, serve static assets and architect a flexible and maintainable design system? And where would we even start refactoring and re-organizing our legacy code base, or move to ES Modules in production, or use Web workers or Webassembly? Oh my, in the workshop, we’ll cover it all.

Microsoft Power Platform: Business Process Automation (part 1/3)
Dino Kurelovic (Algebra)
Business process automation is becoming necessary in all areas. For example, filling in the same documents individually is prone to errors and is a waste of time. With the Power Platform tool, we can analyze data, build applications and automate processes, making our daily tasks easier. In the workshop we will show how to prepare documents, create an application for data entry using the low code / no code PowerApps platform. Based on the data entered from the application, we will automate the process with Power Automate and save, convert and send completed documents.

Welcome to the Tribe
Moderator: Nikola Pavesic (Infobip)
Marin Troselj (Stemi), Darko Jovisic (robotiq.ai)
The Infobip Startup Tribe is a new startup ecosystem initiative designed to support the global ecosystem, in a very local way. Infobip has decided to put plenty of their resources at the disposal of startups of all sizes, industries and geographies. We'll learn what's the impact the Tribe has had so far; what is their roadmap; what excites them; and what is their endgame (if there is one).

Moderator: Anja Obradovic (Infobip)
Grga Curkovic (Mireo), Matija Puskar (Byte Lab)
Internet of Things is something you have definitely stumbled upon in the last few years or so. Have you thought of it in a big picture way? In terms of nodes, platforms, connectivity, scalability? We'll talk to a few startups from Tribe that work in this super exciting field and see what was the best way for them to interact with all kinds of partners. Beacons of future hope, literally.

Business vs. engineering and everything in-between has been an issue in many, if not most, companies. What happens when the engineers wear multiple hats and start taking care of business? Is it a steep learning curve? Is it experience? Is it instinct? In what we foresee to be a heated debate we will talk to technical founders that wanted to be CTOs and beyond - if there is anything above it anyways.

Developing for the Blockchain Future
Moderator: Ana Marija Kostanic (Netokracija)
Edi Sinovcic (Shard Labs), Mario Radosevic (BTC Store), Josipa Majic (Revuto)
In terms of tech, blockchain is a pretty new thing - but, to be honest, not too new anymore. After an immense hype and all the ups and downs with the crypto markets of the last decade we can agree this has become a new asset class but what happened with mass adoption? In this panel we will discuss how to build blockchain and crypto projects that actually work and have real life use cases. What are the challenges? How hard is it to find developers? How do you deal with regulation? How do you cope with the general skepticism?

Since Marc Andreessen's quote 10 years ago, software's gluttony has not slowed down. What aspects of business and everyday life has software digitalized and eaten and where will we go next? What happened in the last 10 years and what will happen in the next 10 years? We will try to see how the software development landscape is changing, if it's accelerating, and if so - how fast?

Smart vs. Stupid Money: Investor Stories
Moderator: Nikola Pavesic (Infobip)
Bozidar Pavlovic (Jackie Agency), David Polach (J&T Ventures), Pedja Predin (South Central Ventures)
Fact: investors can make or break startups. The not-so-mature ecosystems are often suffering of inexperienced investors and the very mature ones might overflow with capital which could be counterproductive. Startups and investors will share their experiences and the mistakes they made. We will learn what is the true role of angels, VCs and PEs.
