★ The talks

✩ Imposter Syndrome - Smilyan Pavlov (@smilyanp)

Imposter syndrome is experienced in some form or another by more than 70% of people. It influences how we see the world, what challenges we take on and can have a real impact day to day. In this talk Smilyan shares his personal experiences and breaks down some of the ways in which imposter syndrome works.

✩ CMSs: Easy Enough to Use, Easy Enough to Ruin - Philip Broadhead (@_Phil83)

Talking through the pitfalls and upsides of the CMS. Speed, development, ease of use, etc. The CMS is something that should be used for the right reasons rather than creating something using one as it is 'easy'.
