Beyond a more capable web - Basic : UX & Design

Our vision of how we interact with most productivity, line-of-business and data systems has remained largely the same for the last two decades while we have been busy moving them from the desktop to the web. Throughout, we have needed to compromise the idealised experience to accommodate the constraints of the web's capability. However, browsers increasingly are no longer the constraint they once were. Maybe now is the time we need to stop hiding behind the excuse of technology, and start truly exploring how we might interact with complex systems?

Rosie Hamilton, Developer @ ThingCo - 10 minutes
Adabox - An Awesome Adventure - Basic : Development / IoT

Sam Hogarth, Lead Developer @ Scott Logic - 30 minutes
In Retrospect - Basic : Delivery & Process

Why we perform retrospectives, where we go wrong, how to make them right.

I've seen a lot of projects where retrospectives have failed to deliver incremental change. In this talk I take a look back into history to understand the cross-disciplinary evidence for iterating on feedback, reflecting on how this is the "engine" of Agile development.

Thanks to our sponsors, Scott Logic (
