2. Talk (en): Open Source at sitegeist by Wilhelm Behncke (sitegeist)

Almost every major tech company does open source nowadays. For example, Google and Microsoft both manage over a thousand open source repositories on, Facebook and Netflix both over a hundred. Amongst those projects are big names like TypeScript and React. But there's also a lot of smaller libraries and developer tools published by those companies.

It looks like this is a wide spread practice amongst the most successful companies in the field. Yet, the thought of publishing your software for free - your intellectual property, no less - seems counterintuitive. How could this be beneficial to your business? What is it about open source software, that so many big companies are doing it? Do you have to be a big company to engage in open source development?

At sitegeist we're publishing open source packages on a regular basis. And with this talk, we'd like to share our experience, by focusing on the following questions:

- What do we mean when we talk about open source?
- What benefits come with publishing open source software?
- What are - in our experience - the ideal conditions for developing open source software?

And finally, we'd like to give some practical advice and tips for how to get started with and sustain continuous open source development.

3. Talk (en): EventSourced Starship by Bernhard Schmitt (sitegeist)

In the domain of fictional starship operating systems, there are a lot of messages being transmitted between subsystems - with an event store as single source of truth. We'll have a quick look at the responsibilities of Node and PHP in this project and how the latter can help - in form of Neos, which now Can Also Run Starships.

4. Talk (de): Automate all the things von Roland Golla (never code alone -

Ein Push und alle Rollouts passieren von alleine. Mit GitLab und Docker wird direkt eine Feature Subdomain angelegt und alle Acceptance-, API und PHPUnit-Tests gefahren. Von hier geht es mit Merge Requests in GitLab weiter auf die Develop- und Staging-Umgebungen. Am Ende wird es dann einfach mit einem Knopfdruck live gestellt. Das spart viel Zeit, Geld und Nerven. Der Never Code Alone Workflow als Live Demo von der Tastatur bis zum Release.
