A framework to lead a team to success in a challenging environment

𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗞 𝗔𝗕𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧
Producing high-quality work is dependent on how well-organized is the team, especially in a high-pressure environment like an ad agency or a production studio. Additionally, this high-pressure environment is intensified due to the global COVID-19 lockdown that makes us all work from home. Now more than ever, teams struggle with cultural differences, perceived pressure from management, or misaligned definitions of success.

These examples are only a handful of current problems that (almost) every team faces, which results in unhappy and stressed out developers. Processes outside of their control keep them from doing the thing they love: write great code. Even from home.

Over the years I have learned that you are more successful if you understand what motivates people. At Valtech we know happy teams produce better work. Motivated and responsible people are the core of our success. Therefore, I have created a framework (yes, I’m a developer) to deal with projects in complex environments that I call “Team First”.

This talk is about how the “Team First” framework came to be and how it works. Team First contains best practices and rules to follow in order to make yourself and your team successful. I share anecdotes from years of experience that most developers can identify with. In this installment, I will focus on remote working as well.

Tim has worked at different agencies in Amsterdam and Paris over the past twelve years. He has been lucky enough to have had global clients like Nike, Heineken, Google, Tommy Hilfiger, EA games, Chanel, and Hermes. Next to being web development director he also has a transversal front-end lead role for the biggest global client program at Valtech. The job involves programming with nice technologies but also animating an international group of amazing front-end developers to a future of innovation for both Valtech and its clients. It’s all about quality and building fancy websites. A demanding job also needs balancing. Tim plays guitar and loves family time with his wife and a little corgi called Nugget.

Reactive Online Meetup | Gil Tayar #1

𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗞:
These microservices are made for testing, and testing is what we’ll do…

𝗔𝗕𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧:
…one of these days these tests are gonna help a lot for you!
But to do that, you need to write those tests. Which is what we’ll do: write tests for microservices, and understand the best strategy for testing them, the techniques used, and the correct mix of unit, integration, and end to end tests.

𝗚𝗜𝗟’𝘀 𝗕𝗜𝗢:
From the olden days of DOS, to the contemporary world of Software Testing, Gil was, is, and always will be, a software developer. He has in the past co-founded WebCollage, survived the bubble collapse of 2000, and worked on various big cloudy projects at Wix.
His current passion is figuring out how to test software, a passion which he has turned into his main job as Evangelist and Senior Architect at Applitools. He has religiously tested all his software, from the early days as a junior software developer to the current days at Applitools, where he develops tests for software that tests software, which is almost one meta layer too many for him.

TALK
GraphQL Mesh – Why GraphQL between services is the worst idea and the best idea at the same time!

TALK ABSTRACT
We all heard about the benefits of using GraphQL between the client and server, but when it comes to communication between services on the backend there is still a lot of discussions about different philosophies and solutions. Should you use Federation, Stitching, or not use GraphQL at all? In this talk, I’m going to demonstrate each approach, show the downsides of each of them, and reveal a new, radical approach that brings the best of all worlds.

BIO
Long time open source veteran. Started The Guild to create a sustainable way of building and maintaining open source. A big believer in GraphQL. Worked in Apollo, collaborated with Facebook on the GraphQL Subscriptions spec, and create many famous open source libraries.

Forbidden Planet Cured my Imposter Syndrome

𝗔𝗕𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧
Come with me on an adventure with a heroic robot, a mad scientist, a feminist, a pilot, and our monster, imposter syndrome. Let me share how a sci-fi movie from 1956, starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen, taught me how to recognize imposter syndrome not as the monster hellbent on ruining my romance with an ever-evolving development ecosystem, but as a tool to prevent burnout.

Jen Luker is a Sr. Frontend Engineer, conference speaker, and BookBytes podcast co-host. She has spent the majority of her career as a full-stack developer using PHP, Javascript, and CSS, but has a particular fondness for frontend technologies. She is an advocate for both accessibility, and processes that make doing the right thing easy and the wrong thing hard. When she’s not exploring solutions, learning new technologies, or reading, Jen’s spare time is spent spinning yarn from raw wool and knitting; she’s even been known to 3D print her own tools for the job. She is also fascinated by all things space, antique cars, and IoT.

Building Your Own Design System with CSS Variables

𝗔𝗕𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧
You probably don’t need a CSS framework. While CSS Frameworks are wonderful and certainly have their place in the development landscape, they are often overused in place of a custom solution. In this talk, we’ll look at how you can abandon the bloat and overhead of a CSS framework and quickly build a robust design system of components tuned to your needs using CSS variables.
