Lightning talks (approx 10 minutes each)

Talk 1: Developer productivity in a post-AI world - Roberth Strand
AI seems to get integrated into everything these days, and developer tools are no exception. We have now have virtual assistants that can suggest code, explain and teach, and even troubleshoot deployments or improve your applications security.

How do AI tools transform the way developers write code, and how we can get the most out of our new digital helpers? In this session we will look at the tools that have quickly become the industry standards, but also some that can be a benefits for both developers and cloud engineers.

Talk 2: Why your AI generated talk abstract was rejected for NDC Oslo - Einar Høst
This year, NDC Oslo received a large volume of AI generated talk abstracts. Most of them were rejected. We'll explain why.

Talk 3: Modern fraud: A deep dive into Vishing - Brynjar Steinbakk Ulriksen
Recently, many of us have received random robot phone calls supposedly from the 'Norwegian Police Department,' originating from Norwegian phone numbers. The caller claims that we are victims of a scam. While most of us recognize this as a scam and either refrain from answering or promptly hang up, the persistence of these calls begs the question: why do they continue?

In this lightning talk, we will delve into an emerging modern fraud strategy gaining traction: vishing. We'll explore an introduction to vishing, how it is executed, and the active measures taken by you, the police and banks to combat it.

Talk 4: Primitive Collections in EF Core 8.0: Simplifying Data Storage with JSON - Hallstein Brøtan

The release of Entity Framework (EF) Core 8.0 introduced primitive collections, a feature enabling the direct storage of lists and arrays as JSON in SQL Server. By mapping any IEnumerable T property, where T is a primitive type, to a JSON column, developers can now efficiently manage data without the overhead of traditional tables. I've been using this feature in my current project, and I would like to share my real-word experience, using code examples.

In this session, you'll learn:
* A straightforward explanation of primitive collections in EF Core 8.0.
* Practical tips for when to use JSON to simplify your data storage.

Join me to discover how EF Core 8.0 can enhance your data handling in just 15 minutes.
