DevOps is coming for you (by Hannes Lowette of Axxes)
The IT world is a rather young industry, and as a consequence, things are evolving rapidly. More than once, 'the way things are done' have changed. And they will change again during the rest of your career. One of the next big changes that no of us will be able to escape is 'DevOps'. There are many definitions for that word. If you look at job openings, it might mean 'system engineering by automating everything', if you talk to recruiters, it might be a guy that has the combined skills of a developer and a sysadmin, but to me, DevOps is a mentality. And one we won't be able to escape...

Help, my boss hates me! (by David Stroobants of Kenze)
First, let me be clear. I don't hate you! (Really, I don't!) But that doesn't mean I always like the things you do ;-)
I used to be an employee for many many years before I turned over to the dark side and became "a manager" myself. Maybe now is a good time to share with you some of the things that I experience being a manager and working with employees from a different perspective.
What are the things that I like? What is behaviour that I expect? What can you expect from me? What is your role and my role within the company? What can you do to get promoted and maybe become a manager yourself?
Hopefully, this session will give you some fresh insights into the head of "a manager" that doesn't hate you, at all ;-)

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse with Adaptable IoT (by Geert Baeke of Xylos)
You never know what is going to happen next. When starting with IoT, there are a lot of choices to be made with respect to devices, sensors and backend systems. In a rapidly changing world with continuously evolving requirements, it is important that you roll out a solution that can quickly adapt to changing circumstances, such as the zombie apocalypse. That requires constructing a flexible end-to-end approach for your IoT solution, both on the device and backend side; for example to easily add or change sensors at the device and deal with that new type of data in the backend.

This session discusses what choices we think you should make at the device side and Microsoft Azure IoT side, to avoid having to restart from scratch every time your business comes back with a new requirement. The goal is to create an adaptable IoT solution, to handle even the toughest & weirdest situations.

Medical Prescriptions on a Public Blockchain (by Kristof Verslype of Smals)
Electronic prescriptions offer numerous advantages over their physical counterpart, but also pose new challenges. We present a novel approach, based on smart contracts on a public blockchain. Despite this public character, the privacy of the involved persons, such as the patient, as well as the confidentiality of business information of the involved organisations, such as the mutuality, is guaranteed.
