Delivery software with confidence by Jarne van Aerde

Are you as self assured to get your code to production as you were when you’ve written it? Or is there some kind of fear that it may all go wrong for thousands of users? In this session, I will tell you more about how we do software delivery at my current client, and how we succeed in going to production multiple times a day.

Speaker: Everyone wants to make the world a better place, we each do this by different actions. I do this by sharing knowledge to the best of my ability. I get great joy from explaining something that is not easy to understand, but in such a way that it becomes trivial and fun to listen to.

I mostly cover technical topics, but I also like to talk about the way we work, communicate and use our soft skills.

Outside work, I like to cook, play pool and have a beer with some friends.

Length: 30min

Quick wins and marginal gains in Laravel by Bert De Swaef

During this talk, we'll dive into a bunch tips and tricks in Laravel that helped me out as a "Laravel" developer over the year...

Some easy things that you may have forgotten over time, that will gain you some serious advantages in production.

Alongside that we'll take a look at a few techniques that will ease out your development process.

Speaker: Bert is a software developer from Ghent, Belgium, with a passion for automatisation. Besides crafting awesome products, he enjoys creating tutorials on YouTube, and talking with fellow developers at conferences, on or off stage...
When he's not writing code or talking about his passion. He competes in Dogfrisbee and Triathlon.
