About daho.am

DAHO.AM is a tech conference bringing together some of the best developers in the world to discuss the topics: Evolve Yourself and Build Tech.

The conference covers all the things developers care about, both technology and personal development. Technical education is only one half of the equation. The other half is improving yourself, your team, and your mindset.

DAHO.AM helps you to become the best developer you can be, pushing boundaries, charging your career, and getting inspiration.

Becoming a CTO
Ulrike Müller

Young startups often assign the title CTO just to the most technical person and that’s their definition of the CTO role. The industry however distinguishes between three technical leadership roles, the CTO, the VP Engineering and the Chief Software Architect. The CTOs primary role is to connect business and technology. In this talk, I’ll define the role of the CTO through my experience from different companies. With examples from my previous roles I also show how business and technology are intertwined and how the CTO has to lead in both directions. I will also provide some advice, on how to grow into the CTO role.

Deep Human Learning
Jan Stassen
Museum of Values // cocreation.loft

AI, VR and Big Data are seen as the drivers of change. But what electricity is for devices, are values for social systems and society. In a world of growing complexity and digitalization, we need an equal understanding of how we relate to ourselves and others. The questions arises: If Deep Machine Learning becomes increasingly important in a technology-driven world, what would Deep Human Learning look like? In this talk, we want to explore the importance of personal values, reflection and life-long learning.

Development is for Future
Maximilian Berghoff
Mayflower

We developers don't feel addressed when it comes to climate change. We don't run factories, we can work from home offices, and our laptops consume very little electricity. The environmental sinners are the others. But if you look at the figures, we are far less innocent. Bitcoin alone generates more CO2 than the 165 million inhabitants of Bangladesh. 5 seconds of Internet video generate one gram of CO2, an e-mail 4. A single Bitcoin transaction generates more CO2 than 100 km in the SUV, 2% of the total CO2 volume worldwide is generated by the Internet alone.  So we are not uninvolved, but directly responsible for CO2 emissions. But what does this mean for our work? What can we do to reduce our Co2 footprint and the solutions we create? Can we really work climate neutrally if we want to?

Fear of the Dark - or: How to shine in a TechDD
Chris Philipps
Philipps & Byrne

I am a man who walks alone And when I'm walking a dark road At night or strolling through the park When the light begins to change I sometimes feel a little strange A little anxious when it's dark Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have a constant fear that somethings always near Fear of the dark, fear of the dark I have a phobia that someone's always there   ----- One of the most crucial processes in a startup is the Due Diligence. Leaving a good impression is key to investors’ money. Tech people, especially young founders and CTOs, are often dramatically unprepared when it comes to a technical due diligence. On the other hand, with a bit of preparation, a Due Diligence (DD) shouldn't be a reason for sleepless nights. Chris Philipps has been on both sides of the game, as CTO as well as reviewer. In this talk Chris will to share their experience: - What is important in a Tech and Product DD, specifically for an eCommerce company? - How can one be well-prepared? - Red flags and green flags - How to discuss (and sell) skeletons in the closet? At the end of the session there will be space for your questions.

Networking and Public Speaking for Introverts
Johann Romefort
Techstars

In this talk, which is inspired by his own personal experience as an introvert, Johann will explain how to build the soft skills required to advance your career in a world where hard skills are becoming increasingly commoditized.   Building a network and leading by influence are essential to propel your career - yet those skills are not taught at school, and are daunting tasks for the introverts to take on. By reflecting on his personal journey, Johann will provide immediately actionable tips and insights on how to tame fear, develop confidence and become good at connecting with others in any scenario.   Finally, in the spirit of pushing boundaries, Johann will explain how he got on this stage, conquering the #1 fear of humans: Public Speaking.

How does a typical career path look like and most importantly - what do we try to achieve? What does really matter? Money? Career? Power? Values are important but how to find and keep them? Let’s sit together and discuss over drinks.

Workshop: Delivering Modern Production-Ready Apps with AWS
Sönke Rümpler
superluminar

This session gives an overview how to build production-ready and future-proof serverless applications with AWS - optimized for high-speed app delivery and lowest maintenance overhead. We will cover everything you need for a full-blown environment from dev to prod: Automated and secure multi-account setup, app development with the Serverless Application Model (SAM); queues and databases; testing, automated deployment and releases, secrets management, backup and restore, monitoring and alerting, observability and tracing.
The result is a fully managed setup, no containers or servers to maintain, no pay for idle resources; fault-tolerant and scalable to thousands of requests per second.

Workshop: Securing JavaScript (and more): Content Security Policy
Christian Wenz
Arrabiata Solutions

The concept of Cross-site Scripting (XSS) is over 20 years old, but the attack does not seem to go away. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel: Content Security Policy (CSP) is a W3C standard that can effectively limit which JavaScript code a browser is allowed to run. Additional features like reporting, fallbacks for older browsers, and fine-grained control over other content of a web site makes CSP a must-have tool for every web developer. It does come with a cost, though: especially legacy applications may need some refactoring. In this workshop we will have a look at different features and versions of CSP, provide best practices for using this technology, and also analyze implementation strategies.
