This year’s central theme is ‘Work efficient and live your life’. With our speaker and topic selection we want to give you a guide on how to improve the holy grail of ‘work-life balance’.
You will learn how to work more efficient with sane approaches to front-end tooling, hear how to find your niche in our industry, listen to building side projects while caring about your children and husband / wife and get advice how to stay up to date in todays’ fast-moving world.
We chose five high-level speakers entertaining you during this evening at the conference.
Bastian is the creator of a little, file-based CMS called Kirby and the former visual bookmarking service Zootool. He has a master’s degree in design but works as a freelance web developer for more than a decade.
