Talk 1: Skills vs Knowledge : are we learning the right things? - Natalia An
Succeeding as an IT professional is challenging. One might work hard, but is that enough? What is it that makes you stand out of crowd? Is it knowledge or skills that are most important and what is the difference between those two? Understanding this difference is vital for the career development, but sometimes not easy.
This short talk will define and compare skills vs knowledge and their importance, helping you cast a critical look at your carreer and do the right steps to improve it.
Talk 2: Grain + Hops + IoT = Beer - David Christiansen
Come and find out how my garage based all-grain beer brewery uses the finest grain, quality hops, a few IoT devices and hacked fridges.
Discover how to use docker, python, .net core, a few raspberry Pi, arduino, mains electricity and hacked fridges tometiculously monitor andcontrol brewing and fermentation processes - results being mighty fine quality beer!
There have been moments in time that represent a discontinuity with history: the first sub-four minute mile; the breaking of the sound barrier; the first man on the Moon.
This is a tale of development, DevOps, of epic system optimizations, near tragedy, and the triumph of the human spirit.
Just as NASA's space program technology rolled back into human society to change the quality of human life - the technology developed to set that world record has been used to make a difference in the quality of life of children and families living with Type 1 Diabetes.
The MCT1 project, conceived through a chance meeting at NDC Sydney in 2016, uses this technology to fundamentally alter the quality of life for people around the world. As software developers, we hold a tremendous power and with it a great responsibility.
In this talk you'll get a real sense of the power and the possibility of the connections around you and the abilities that you have.
