Design Systems: The journey from chaos to consistency
Design systems are everywhere. At some point, we’ve all used bootstrap, material, or shoelace. But we end up tweaking and changing and struggling with out of the box solutions, until we begin to fantasize about creating our own design system. But what does that process look like? What happens behind the scenes? Do we get enough value to justify the cost? This talk will describe the journey we took at Vonage to create our own design system, the challenges we faced on the way, and the surprising insights that turned an internally used tool into a customer facing product.

It’s easy to create good looking products, but what about useful ones?
"It’s not enough to build products that function, it's not even enough to make them understandable and usable, you need to build products that bring joy and excitement, pleasure & fun, if possible even beauty to people’s lives. Learn to design with your user’s needs and expectations in mind by applying basic rules. What to expect: ◾ UX vs UI: The two different perspectives of UX and UI, the importance of each, what does a UX designer do, what does a UI designer do, the different categories of UX as well as UI. ◾ About Heuristics: What is the heuristic evaluation? How to conduct an effective heuristic evaluation? Why do we need it? ◾ The 10 Usability Heuristics (by Jakob Nielson and Don Norman): With tips and examples. ◾ The Do’s and Don’ts of UX: Quick tips about UX researchers and designers ◾ The Good and the Bad of UI: How does a good designer work VS a bad designer."

Quo vadis, Frontend?
There is no industry that is more rapidly developing than the frontend. You can argue, but how many more ecosystems do you know where frameworks are emerging at this rate? Web standards are being implemented and immediately become obsolete. The most important question is: where are we going, and where will we come to? The question is not rhetorical: how not to stay out of business in this bubbling stream and capture only the most important, what will be the trend in 2022.

A Guide To Functional Programming
"Functional Programming is a paradigm as old as time (well as old as the 1950s if we’re being literal) but that doesn’t make it any easier to understand. While there are languages that are functional by design, it’s also possible to use functional programming as a coding guide for any language you're working in. In this presentation, we'll explore the What, Why and How of Functional Programming and also take a look at how to use functional programming with popular languages to write code that is scalable, readable and easy to maintain - all the things good code should be."

Using Data Visualization to Fight COVID-19
The years 2020-2021 will be remembered as the years of COVID-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, I was involved in building a web app for the Israel ministry of health. The app visualizes the chain of infection and helps decision makers to understand the characteristics of the virus spreading and other aspects. In this talk, I’ll delve into how we used D3, React and PixiJS in order to build the app.
Software Engineer @ Delivery Hero SE
Let's talk about design systems.
When we talk about a design system, people by default assume it is something very complex and is only for experienced developers! Why do we have this kind of gatekeeping? It’s not needed! Let me walk you through how we handle our design system at Delivery hero. How when I started I was able to make sense out of design systems. How you can too. I am going to talk about how you don't need to consider all the components of design systems, we take what we need and make our project beautiful and scalable. Let's talk about consistency, component library and think of design systems together.
Senior Development Manager at Shopify, founder at Rebased @ Shopify, Rebased
In every organization, someone uses a spreadsheet instead of specialized software. It works and it does the job. Sometimes, however, it would be nice to get to the API of the websites we use instead of pasting the data into the spreadsheet, and it would be best if it could be done with code in JS, the lingua franca of the Internet. It all turns out to be possible and that is exactly what we are going to play with during my presentation.

Building a next-gen validations framework
Forms were not always a part of the web, in fact, they were only added in HTML2, and even to this day writing them feels like they are an afterthought. Vest is a powerful form validations framework inspired by the syntax and style of unit testing libraries like Mocha or Jest. It uses their declarative structure and makes it easy to write complex form validations that are also easy to read and maintain. Vest changes we think and about validation logic in our apps. Let's see what goes into building such a framework.

Palace of Culture and Science
00-901 Warsaw, Poland
Palace of Culture and Science
One of the highest and most recognisable building in Warsaw can be seen from almost every part of the capital. Where did it come from? It was opened in 1955 on the initiative of Joseph Stalin as a “gift of the Soviet people for the Poles”. Built by Russian workers, for a long time, it was considered to be a symbol of socialist power and the pride of People’s Poland – it was where conventions of the Polish United Workers’ Party took place. Since its very beginning, its monumental interiors have hosted numerous concerts, exhibitions, fairs and shows.
