This year’s lineup is a great mix of new-thinking and inspirational practitioners, researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs who operate at the intersection of business and software development. Here are all the speakers at myConf 2024:

Tamara Carleton: Building a Moonshot Mindset

When should your team go bigger, and what are some ways to take visionary action? In this inspirational session, hear Tamara Carleton introduce the moonshot mindset and some ways for turning radical ideas into reality, drawing from her recent book Building Moonshots which the Financial Times described as "a much-needed resource for our era of uncertainty".

James Lewis: How flow works

Have you ever thought about why what we see as the sensible defaults for software engineering in 2024 work? We adopt the key metrics from Accelerate, team structures from Team Topologies, and Microservices in an effort to improve the flow of value to our users. But what is Value? What is Flow? Come along and explore the weird world of how work works.

April Wensel: Maximize humanity with compassion

With all the time we spend on machines, it’s easy to forget that we are human beings, and so are our collaborators and customers. In this talk, you’ll learn concrete steps for applying compassion to manage your stress levels, connect more deeply with your coworkers, create products that delight users, and ultimately leave a more positive impact on the world.

Erik Meijer: Virtual machinations – leveraging the linguistic bytecode of large language models to emulate programming language VMs

We need to adjust the way we communicate with and instruct AIs to perform desired tasks. However, natural language is inefficient for expressing instructions precisely. We will demo the design of a natural language-based programming language and show how we can implement it using a large language model as its VM.

Jan Bosch: Stop wasting your R&D budget! Start modeling value and experiment!

Research shows that current practices around product management and R&D are incredibly wasteful. In this talk, I present an alternative approach organized around quantitative modeling of value, experimental development approaches, and continuous monitoring of value delivered to customers in operational software.
