Workshops & talks
  • We're all biased
    Everyone is biased. Conscious or unconscious. But if you leave these biases unchecked when creating digital products, you risk excluding large groups of people. This workshop learns you to apply inclusive & accessible design principles to serve your users better, innovate and lift up your product's thresholds.

    For whom: For anyone with even the slightest hand in digital product building. All the way from devs to PMs, this workshop is an eye-opener into the world of inclusive design.
  • Stir up the cloud
    The C in Cloud stands for complexity. This workshop aims to bring clarity on how to set up a fitting cloud architecture for your digital solution.

    For whom: People who love to bring structure into technical complexity. If you know what Deploy or Die stands for, this workshop is right up your alley.
  • Roadmap: Board(room) Game
    The road to digital success is eventful, to say the least. Many challenges will cross your path. Things that can set you back or move you forward. In this first-of-its-kind board game, you will encounter recognisable digital challenges and address them in a playful way. Expect an hour filled with real-life examples, tips, and lively discussions.

    For whom: For people on the frontline of innovation who enjoy learning in a playful way as much as they like to solve pretty tough challenges.
  • What organisations can foster high-performing teams?
    While many companies try to install a so-called “software factory” or “delivery organisation”, few succeed. Digital product development challenges the org charts of most companies. Our CEO Jeroen Lemaire explains his vision on how to build a context and a culture to make your teams thrive.

    For whom: Organisation culture is what drives you. Transformation beyond the hype triggers you.

In this panel discussion with experts like Kat Zhou, we will dive into the specifics of digital trust and how leading companies build digital trust towards their users.

Infocalypse by deepfakes

In a world of deepfakes, it will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what isn’t. As advances in AI, video creation and online trolling continue, deepfakes pose a real threat to democracy and individual and societal manipulation. This crisis of misinformation which we now face has since been dubbed the “Infocalypse.” Nina Schick reveals shocking examples of deepfakery and explains the dangerous political consequences of the Infocalypse, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics. She also unveils what this means for us individuals and how unprepared governments and tech companies are for what’s coming.
