Isabel Brison - Radical Keyboard Surfing
Keyboard navigation is a radical sport on today's Internet. Chances you'll make it through a website with nothing but your keys are pretty slim.
But it doesn't have to be that way. By making sure all interactive elements can be reached (and escaped) through the keyboard and by providing visual evidence of focus we can make the web a friendlier place for keyboard surfers. Plus we can implement some handy shortcuts: surfing is all about speed, right? And avoiding the jaws of dreaded focus traps. Forget about mice, we're going to build the coolest keyboard experience ever!
Kiah Hickson - The Pursuit of Passion & Career Change Challenges
Impossible really is nothing. This is what happens when you let technology in to re-wire your destiny.
From building interest, to building passion, to putting in the hard work and creating opportunities, my goal is to lead by example, to show women everywhere, that you can change the course of your life.
Shipra Mahindra - B2B: Binary to Business
To become a better developer, it is crucial to understand how the business oeprates. In my short talk, I would like to expand on this further and discuss how we can bridge the gap between the technical/non-technical parts of a business.
Note: Please try to arrive on time as the lifts need swipe access to get to Level 6. There will be someone to swipe people up, but they can’t stay downstairs forever!
If you arrive early, you may need to wait in Atlassian's reception area until our door-person arrives, as they need to mark your name off our Guest List.
Our pizzas are full of gluten and cheese, so if you have any food intolerances, you're best off bringing a snack! There will be vegetarian options.
