Talk 1: A Performance Test on Steroids! - Jens Hordvik
Whether you are fresh out of school or an experienced developer, we have all made a mistake at some point at work. But despite the negative connotations of the word, making a mistake is not necessarily a negative thing. Mistakes provide experience. Mistakes create innovation. Having room for mistakes is essential in the workplace. To create room for errors it is important to share. During this talk I will tell a fun, lighthearted story of one the mistakes I have made recently and show how much trouble one supposedly innocent API-request can cause.

Talk 2: Mixed Reality check - Scott Leaman
What is the state of Mixed Reality in 2023, and how did we get here?

Starting with an accelerated history of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, we will look at the current state of the art of Mixed Reality in terms of hardware and software/services, and have a look forward to the near future to see what is just around the corner for this relatively new medium.

As Microsoft, Meta and Apple carve out their own respective visions for the future of Mixed Reality, it's never been a more important time to stop and take a look at how far the technology has come, and where it might take us in the future

Climate action and green software engineering has risen to the top of many technology companies' agenda. But where does one get started? The Principles of Green Software are a core set of competencies needed to define, build and run green sustainable software applications. Through the synthesis of this knowledge, a Green Software Practitioner can make decisions which have a meaningful impact on the carbon emissions of their applications. This session will give you the tools to take an active part in the climate solution.
