    Developer Joy – How great teams get s%*t done

    By Sven Peters

    Software development has become more complex over the years: Building and running a distributed architecture in the cloud, ensuring observability, discussing user experience with design and product, and keeping a healthy balance between dev speed and code quality isn’t easy. Just be agile and practice DevOps, they say. Join Sven and learn how great software teams measure and improve their developer experience, coordinate work across teams, run autonomous but highly aligned teams, and create a healthy and joyful engineering culture. Always backed up by data (not driven) instead of opinions. The talk will demonstrate how great teams faced development challenges, reinvented themselves, and created new ways of working to get s%*t done. Without losing sight of what makes this craft fun for engineers.

    The (IT) transformation of KNAB: transforming a scale up for the future

    By Krista Den Uijl

How did we start out, where are we now and what does that mean for our IT? A journey from start up to finding our sweet spot to delivering on our (customer) value by reaching our full potential in the future and the transformation that is underway to make this all possible.

    How good of a developer are you?

    By Roy Wasse

    Are you a good Java developer? What makes a good developer? And how can we measure this? If you ask Oracle they'll say OCP (Oracle Certified Programmer), which means that you know when the compiler makes those red squiggly lines in your IDE disappear. If you ask FAANG companies it means you can balance a binary tree on a whiteboard. All of these methods involve some knowledge and memory, but have very little to do with actual day-to-day programming, technical skill, problem solving and creativity. And.. don’t you think it’s annoying you have to take all these technical tests even though you’ve been coding for many years? In this talk we'll describe our long journey to find a better way to test software development skills; a model based on scientific research, to measure actual coding skills, in a realistic environment. Demo & code included. We're currently working with the (international) community to use these measures and set up a more realistic certification process.

    The Next Generation of IT: Harnessing the Potential of Trainees

    By Iris de Haas

    Does your organization aim to increase productivity, decrease time to market and become more efficient? You’re going to need the right people to achieve these goals, and they can be hard to come by. At ING, we have found that hiring (external) trainees with little to no IT experience and investing in their development is a great way of meeting our talent needs. In this talk, you will learn (from a former trainee!) how investing in trainees helped us build our internal talent pipeline, foster innovation, and develop a learning culture. Join this session if you are interested to learn how IT trainees can benefit your team and organization!
