Tracks

Technology

Quantum Leap or Status Quo?

Take a proper look at the latest tech moves — fast data, artificial intelligence, the cloud, container platforms, blockchain, security, the future of front-end, and quantum computing... and find out what should be keeping you awake at night.

Design

Turn dreams into Magic

How can you transform your craziest daydreams into something tangible? Think like a designer. We’ll dive into the art of designing something truly magical. We’ll transition from ARGH to WOW to create enjoyable experiences that make us crave more.

Craftsmanship

Free the beauty within

How can you blend skill with artistry to craft beautiful things? We’ll dive into making things with finesse in a world where the boundaries of crafts have become blurred — for example — with virtual, augmented and extended reality and, umm... just reality.
