by Hannes et al.

Software Architecture, Processes, Organization – and Humans
- In this talk, we’ll look at software architecture, team organization and the interplay between technology and humans. We’ll address some of the patterns and anti-patterns that can be observed when organizations try to evolve towards more decentralization and autonomy, and take a look at some strategies to ensure technology supports and enables the desired outcome.

Cloud-Performance - how we survived the holiday season @NewStore
Performance is still key in usability and operations of all applications that we build and use.
- [masked]€ per year by 0.1s performance improvement

This talk will discuss the above issues and will add some spice with our recent holiday season f***-**s experiences.
