Zero conflict marriages with Astro

Astro is an all-in-one framework with a focus on high performant delivery of content. It support popular frameworks like ReactJS, Angular, VueJS and Svelte with zero configuration.

In this talk we'll discover some of the features and top notch developer experience of Astro by showcasing the zero config setup and having a miniature React JS application communicating with a miniature VueJS application.

I will also showcase the performant side of Astro by quickly deploying and showcasing the out of the box performance of a simple website.

The session is meant to inspire and support the opening of traditional developer tech silos with supportive modern frameworks.

Great Migrations: Upgrading at Scale

In the wild, creatures migrate in large herds for various reasons. These migrations are not without peril. In this talk, natures' migratory patterns serve as inspiration when applying lessons to our own upgrade and migration paths. I'll be describing processes you can employ in your (mid to large scale) organisation to follow an optimal migration path.

Use case is the way we've upgraded our internal component library on which we build our software at Jumbo Supermarkten. This situation applied to the upgrade that we are conducting on our tech stack based on Vue & Nuxt in a multi application landscape.

Why the Developer Experience matters for business

Your typical loyal customer journey might take less than an hour on your platform. But your development team however, spends significantly more time on your product. Every. Single. Day. That's why you should focus on the DX as well as the UX.

Maintaining a component library at scale

At Jumbo Supermarkten we use Vue for our frontend development. To speed up application building, we've created and maintain a component library. Within our frontend chapter, we're making a point of everybody being involved in the maintenance and development of the library. What did we do to facilitate this? And what problems did we need to solve? How is this helping cross domain communications? How are we dealing with the Vue3 update? Come find out!

Building a frontend platform with Nuxt

At Jumbo Supermarkten, we're building our own frontend platform to facilitate individual scrum teams working independently on the stuff that matters while maintaining a omni channel experience across our landscape.

Navigating Design System Maturity in Tech Organizations

Join us for an insightful and entertaining talk that dives into the world of design systems and their evolution within growing tech organizations. In this session, we'll explore the concept of maturity models and how they can be applied to design systems, offering practical guidance for organizations at different stages of growth.

From fledgling startups to established enterprises, the process of establishing and maintaining a design system can vary significantly. We'll deconstruct the journey into distinct maturity levels, providing you with a roadmap for success. Along the way, we'll share real-world examples, lessons learned, and expert advice on how to adapt your approach to fit your organization's unique culture and needs.

Why is this topic important and relevant? Well, design systems play a pivotal role in modern web development, enabling teams to achieve consistency, scalability, and efficiency. However, implementing and maturing a design system can be a complex undertaking, particularly as organizations evolve and grow. By understanding the different maturity levels and the appropriate processes for each stage, you'll be empowered to make informed decisions, avoid common pitfalls, and foster a culture of continuous improvement.

Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. So, join us as we explore the fascinating world of design system maturity and discover how to build bridges that connect your organization's unique culture with effective design system practices. Be ready to laugh, learn, and leave inspired to take your design system journey to new heights!

The Voice of the Web

The Web Speech API offers a couple of interesting and possibly useful APIs to play around with and to create interesting web applications, and at the least some out of the box possibilities. In the session we'll investigate use cases of using the API, and some examples in dealing to text to speech synthesis and using voice as an input.

This is a native javascript / webAPI talk and depends on the availability of sound. It's not highly technical and serves as a change of perspective and out of the box thinkings.

Nuxt as the Backbone of Scalable E-Commerce

Talk on how Nuxt can fit in with enterprise scale architectures. I gave an inspirational talk about how we at Jumbo Supermarkten have devised a platform to publish our E-Commerce.

It starts with a bit of context and a short history, where we will start to apply the changes that are needed to move to the newly built platform.

Not a technical deep dive, and no in-depth technical knowledge needed to be applicable.

Gotta have more cowbell

Talk, with some live coding, on how to learn new tech concepts and ideas by showcasing a small side project. Learning tech is important and therefore should be fun!

Uses sound and is targeted at javascript developers. Takes about 20&30 minutes
