Imposter syndrome and Great Resignation, perfect oxymoron or is it?

The Great resignation and Imposter syndrome should be a perfect oxymoron in IT, but in reality one is a perfect booster for the other. How do you tackle one, and avoid the other?

How has my personal experience with the imposter syndrome influenced my career progress and what steps I should have taken to do things differently? How does it tie up with the current Great Resignation and how has it impacted my career development? Finally, what should you do in order to be the best version of yourself and inspire the best in others?

Come join me as we embark on a journey of personal growth and progress.

Session duration is targeted for 30 minutes.

From iOS developer to Head of Development - the journey!

From development to leadership - the journey!

Growing with the iOS platform from its beginnings was a start of a beautiful journey. Transitioning to a team lead was humbling. Becoming a head of multiple development teams was the challenge of a lifetime.

How do college projects help you adapt the right mindset for teamwork and how do they shape your career - what are the key takeaways? How to utilise the acquired skills and knowledge to be able to lead your own team one day?
Why is delegating a powerful tool for empowering your team members and cultivating trust? How does tapping into individualism and diversity stenghten your team dynamic and foster progress?

This presentation will share first hand experiences, successes and failures of building yourself and your team, and inspire you to bring out the best in yourself and others.
Come and hear all about it and more!

Duration will be targeted around 30 minutes.

Building an effective team from zero

The reality that any employer faces today is that it is increasingly difficult to find new talent. Once you do find them, you need keep your employees challenged and happy in order for them to stay.

Last year we took a leap of faith and ventured in setting up an office at a remote location where we previously did not have a significant presence and achieved a mutually beneficial collaboration with the University of Rijeka.
We will demonstrate how we provided industry based knowledge to students, details of our internship program and how we managed to setup and grow an effective team of 9 that is thriving.

Finally, we will share our wins and fails, what we have learned and how we managed to have fun along the way.

Better safe than sorry

Don't ask for security, ask for an adventure! Or not?

Mobile security has come a long way in the last few years, but it has definitely had its share of design and implementation faux pas, some far more memorable than others.
In this talk we'll go through Android and iOS security and its history; trends that were invented, reinvented and copied, how each platform approaches keeping their users safe, and share a laugh about the mistakes that were made along the way.

In the end you'll have greater insight in the history of security, how it has shaped the design of both platforms and how you can contribute to a greater user experience in your applications, while keeping your users safe!
