Design leadership for introverts
Tim Yeo @timyeo
Do you squirm in your seat when all eyes are on you? Do you find networking awkward and embarrassing? In meetings, do you find yourself keeping quiet even though you have something to say? Does a quiet evening at home with a book sound more attractive to you than an evening socialising with people you’ve never met?
If your answer to most of these questions is yes, congratulations: you are (probably) an introvert.
Introversion is not a choice; I believe it is something you are born with. However, it should not limit you, especially your ability to lead. Yet, as an introvert, you lose energy when engaging with people rather than gain. People engagement is not optional if you want to lead. So how do you lead as an introvert?
In this talk, I share techniques I’ve used to manage my own introversion in order to lead as a designer.

It looks like CSS but it’s not CSS: Writing styles for React Native
Petra Gulicher @petronbot
Writing styles for a React Native app has a lot in common with writing styles for the browser but there are some critical differences. What are the things you need to know to get started, and how do you make sure your code can grow happily? Petch has learnt the hard way so that you don’t have to.
