What to expect: A sampling of XConf 2022 talks
Andy Nolan — Technical director, Australia
Imagine a world where computing is decentralized and power efficient with privacy built-in. A world where devices with a micro footprint have a macro impact. Move over big data, machine learning and cloud compute - and welcome to the world of TinyML. Our keynote speaker, Andy Nolan, will explore this emerging (yet highly underrated) technology.
Jessica Kazembe — Senior consultant, North America
More and more web applications are moving towards a single page application model. Because a lot of the logic is in the frontend, we are starting to apply the backend microservices architecture to the frontend, calling it micro-frontends. But what does that look like in practice? In this talk we will discuss an example of what a micro-frontend architecture looks like, its benefits and pitfalls.
Esther Tham — Experience designer, Singapore
The wide range of needs present in our communities affects how people interact with digital experiences. All too often accessibility and inclusivity are ignored or considered until just before, if not just after, the release of software. This talk will discuss why the path towards accessibility needn’t be difficult, and explore some simple ways to incorporate these aspects into the development process.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on July 28
