Ebru Cucen -> Survival Kit for Women in IT, from a mother who has spent 15 years in IT, most of the time the only women engineer/lead in her teams. This talk is about biases, how we can enable more diverse conversations and enjoy family life.

For the last two decades, she had multiple hats such as programmer, trainer, architect, scrum master, coach, as well as wife, mum, and doing her best to have a balanced, happy life. She loves learning, pushing boundaries, and would never say no to a glass of red wine or preparing maths questions for her 7yr old son!
Amanda Cavallaro & Laura Morinigo -> Building your own automated conversations. You can use Dialogflow, Firebase and Google Cloud Platform for many reasons, we can create interactions to be used within your own communities, may it be a conversational action for families, companies, sports; to help workflows for both customers and businesses. Sometimes it can be a bad thing to talk to an automated conversation if it is not well-designed.
Everyone at all levels is welcome to attend this talk!

Ayelet Sachto -> If you can drive you can architect a system: what you should not forget when architecting a solution
In this talk, I will try to simplify a complex subject, by demonstrating how natural solution architecture can be if you use a different perspective, implementing similar logic from a driver’s daily life through architecture challenges. We will start with demonstrating such trade-offs and design principles by asking simple questions as “which car would you buy?” and "What will your answer be if you have 1000$? 10M$, Would you buy the same car? Will it affect your decision If you driving 10 mins a day? 10 hours a day? Together we will cover the key points and questions you should consider when architecting your solution.
