Speaker Lineup

2018-03-31 17:30:00 +0200

After our hard working review team has decided on talks, and the selected speakers have confirmed their participation, we’re excited to announce our speaker lineup!

We’re happy to see such a great variety and depth in topics – and that we’re hosting both new speakers and well-known faces from our community. For all ideas that don’t quite fill the length or depth of a talk, we’re also going to have Lightning Talk slots. Sign-up for Lightning Talks will be on-site at the talk venue.

Update: Due to a technical failure, the first version of this blog post missed 6 talks. We want to apologize for this error.
