 #SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
#OPEN SOURCE 

 

KEYNOTE – Free and open source culture and you…

STAGE 1| 12:30

Most of you are familiar with commercial software like Microsoft or Oracle or Adobe. Unless you work for those companies you never get to see the source code of the software, so you do not know how it works. Also, you never own the software….it belongs to them…they only let you use it. This talk will be about a different way of creating software that migrated to hardware and even culture…..where you work with other people to meet all of your needs, and the end user is allowed to own the software…in fact we all own the software. The talk will also be sprinkled with how the tech industry has been fairly accepting of LGBTIQ+ people, where “show me the code” is the only thing important to many.

 #TECH CAREER 

Redefining the “Diversity Hire”

STAGE 2| 13:30

You do your job. Maybe you even do it well. But if you work in an industry like tech that is struggling to include underrepresented people, then – at some point – you’ve probably had a very uncomfortable thought: Am I here to fill a quota? Am I a diversity hire? The answer may be “yes”… but that’s not just okay, it’s actually kinda awesome.

 #SOCIAL MEDIA

Tech as Reflection

STAGE 1| 17:00

Technology built without consideration is perhaps the best reflection of the biases, assumptions, and structural inequalities in societies today. Why do we remain unconvinced about the commitment to inclusion for certain brands, while we gravitate towards others?

 #MARKETING 

Using Interactive Content to Market in the Post-Pandemic Economic Boom

STAGE 3| 17:00

Post pandemic shifts in consumer preferences are expected to be significant, The Economist and the Wall Street Journal both predict that a historic economic boom reminiscent of the roaring 20s is just around the corner. New business formation is surging across the world, as entrepreneurs seek to fill gaps in the market with radically unique growth and marketing strategies. In my talk I explore the paradigm shift that the pandemic has brought about to the markets of the Information Age, and how all businesses must play by the new rules of the Information Market or risk becoming irrelevant. One key rule that I will explore is the rapid adoption of interactive content that is allowing companies like TESLA, Amazon, Nike, L’Oreal, and IKEA to beat their competitors easily. Find out how you can try out similar interactive strategies for your own business for free.
