Debug C++ Without Running:
In this talk we'll see interesting approaches to solving cases like macro and typedef 'debug', understanding types when auto/decltype hide them, dealing with different code branches depending on the preprocessor's pass-through, and other ideas. The aim of this talk is to share the workflows supported by the tools that can help C++ developers create better modern C++ code.

Idiomatic Kotlin:
Kotlin has many useful features that can help you to express your ideas in a short and well-understandable form. In this talk, we are going to discuss some of the Kotlin best practices, how to use IntelliJ IDEA features to simplify your code, and how to write own Kotlin-based domain-specific languages.
