After the break, we had three fantastic lightning talks, just like All Day Hey!. Kim Johannesen went into detail on accessibility with his talk “Accessible Buttons”, followed by Grace Zarczynska running through ways to be more productive in your editor with “Productivity: Ways to speed up your coding”. Klara Fleischmann closed the lightning talks with her first-ever talk, “It’s your journey, don’t be afraid to find your way”. Klara absolutely smashed this, telling the audience how important it is to carve your own path and how it’s OK to learn from past mistakes.
Simona Cotin set of us off on the final set of talks with “Serverless at the End of the Universe”. This was by far the most technical talk of the day, diving into serverless functions and how you can manage state between them, giving the audience plenty of practical tips to how you can build better production applications using serverless.
Finally, Asim Hussain closed the conference with “Principles of Green Application Architecture Design”, raising the important topic of the real cost of running our applications on cloud architecture. He lifted the lid on green apps, explaining what we can all do to contribute to a cleaner, greener future.
