Three steps to improve your code and software design.

Thorben Stangenberg

Have you ever needed to fix buggy and poorly written code? Maybe you had to hunt down an intermittent problem just to find out it was caused by ?copy and paste? from a poor solution from StackOverflow. It sucks working on code like this, don?t you think?

Empathic Mentoring for Developers - Why Should You Care, and How?

Dervis Mansuroglu

This talk will share with you proven techniques for helping developers succeed. You will learn about the speakers experiences of mentoring developers from underrepresented groups of the IT-industry and how they succeed landing jobs and trainees positions after just a year and a half of mentoring. Learn about challenges along the way, and the prerequisites needed before mentoring others. Becoming a mentor requires you to face your biases and inner demons. It requires you to believe that all people, no matter background, are unique and skilled. You must relearn what trust and empathy really is in practice. Being a mentor elevates your career, your personality, and it can even save lives.

High Performance through Perseverance

Kellyn Gorman

"Fall down seven times, get up eight."

There is incredible power through the simple act of not giving up. Many who accomplish considerable feats find when reviewing what it was the fact that they didn't give up over the steps or failures that occurred to get to the finish line. This session will dig into a personal journey around a career of great success that all starts and ends with simply doing and persevering.

The goal of this session is to teach others the power of building a goal and sticking to it, even when challenges arise that may make you want to give up. We'll discuss how to make efficient use of time, skills and how to persevere without costing too much of oneself, too.

17:45 to 18:20 (GMT-3)
20:45 to 21:20 (GMT)

Why you should focus on your skills and not on your job description

Daniel Wildt

Some people start working for companies and improve their career based on job descriptions. Later you exchange to another company, going for a different job description.

This never ends. And in the end, you may become someone outdated.

We can create more possibilities, we can build a different path while accepting some job descriptions along the way.

What's the job of your life? What are you willing to do? What are the items in your "must do" list?

I want to talk to you about your skills and why you should focus on them. And why you should build side projects to enhance skills or even create new skills.

18:25 to 18:45 (GMT-3)
21:25 to 21:45 (GMT)
Closing session

After the presentation of the results of the day, on the Stadium stage, many sweepstakes will close the day.
