Abstract: Tips about making a pet-project
Everyone of us is dreaming about making their own startup. Eventually, 90% of such projects fail. I've spent a lot of time working on open source and pet-projects. This talk is about my insights about forcing myself to build and finish a project.
Abstract: Burnout syndrome and why should you take it seriously
In this talk, I will share my experience with burnout syndrome – symptoms, how to avoid or cope with it and will use Chopsticks to visually explain why should you take it serious.
