📩Postman: How to test and monitor your APIs with no hassle - Jernej Kavka (@jernej_kavka) - 30min:
Testing and monitoring APIs is a hard and time-consuming process. In this talk, Jernej will show you how to simplify debugging and integration testing with Postman. He'll import requests from Open API (Swagger), switch between different environments, manipulate environment variables with scripts, monitor the health of the application and much more.

⏱Networking during intermission - 25min:
Pizza thanks to PCCW Global's Brisbane team & Drinks thanks to Just Digital People :-)

🗣Voice AI technology, use cases and demos - Shreyas Nivas (@shreyasnivas) - 20min:
Shreyas has been working on a voice AI application platform that can replicate real voices for a variety of use cases. In this he'll be demonstrating the voice tech and discussing some of the technology challenges with delivering voice audio to a creative user-base over the web. What kinds of frontend stack might support the heavy text to audio capability that they demand?

🧪NOTE: "When to TDD" has unfortunately been cancelled.

⚡️Lightning talk - Metamodules: Importing the banana without the forest - Jarred Filmer (GH: BrighTide) - 5min
Often we encapsulate and deploy microservices as a node module. This is great, but when you want to re-use something from that service then your other services have to import an entire service just to use it. Using typescript and some npm scripts though you can create a "meta-module" build step, that packages what you need and publishes it as a separate module to be imported by other services.

📹How live coding on Twitch made me a better developer - Josh Wulf (@sitapati) - 20min:
After Josh has been streaming for some time on YouTube, he now professionally live codes on Twitch too.
He joins us to share his experiences, and the surprising discovery made during live coding; his hardware and software setup; and the tools that he's written in JavaScript to automate my workflow. Keen to stream? Josh could give you a boost!
