Current schedule is two ~20min talks including Q&A, followed by splitting the audience into smaller groups for virtually hanging out (optional) :)

Main Talk #1 - Florian Gilcher

CEO of @asquera. Heavily invested in the @ruby, @rust-lang and @elastic/@solr communities.

Organiser @eurucamp/@jrubyconf/@rustfest.

You can be part of the difference: dealing with bad players in communities

We all talk about how toxic people get into positions of power and the bad they do. But we rarely talk about how to deal with them.

This talk focuses on mental frameworks to deal with such situations. It also introduces the assumption that toxicity can be perceivedaccidental and deliberate - all of which need different methods to approach. It also focuses on techniques that can be applied outside of the classic community leader chain.

Main Talk #2 - Alexandre Omeyer 

Indie Game Dev: MIRTS, The Ensign, and A Noble Circle. I ported A Dark Room to mobile which went viral out of sheer dumb luck. CEO of DragonRuby. :wq

How to deal with tech debt—Lessons learned from the best engineering teams

Technical debt can be really overwhelming. Often when you start to address it, you realize you’re only just scratching the tip of the iceberg. I have interviewed 200 top engineering teams to learn the perfect process to manage technical debt. In this talk, I will share my learnings: tactics, processes, and tools to use when dealing with small, medium, and large pieces of tech debt, and the approach you can take depending on your company’s stage, size, business priorities, and culture.
