Jessica Rose presenting "Impostor Syndrome and Individual Competence" at Fronteers Conference 2017 in Amsterdam, on 5 October 2017.
"This talk focuses on how Impostor Syndrome and the Dunning-Kruger effect work to undermine our estimation of our individual skills. Who do these cognitive biases affect? And how do they collectively shape the face of the software development industry? The impact of these biases on personal and professional relationships among individuals and groups will be examined, along with what can be done to diagnose and cope with them."

Yoav Weiss presenting "Caches All the Way Down" at Fronteers Conference 2017 in Amsterdam, on 5 October 2017.
The fastest resource download is the one never made. Caching is a great way to ensure your content is positioned as close to your users as possible and that your repeat visitors get instant access to your content. Developers can impact the behavior of network and browser caches, improving content caching and ensuring it’s always as available as it can be, but caching semantics in HTTP can be confusing, which means that most content on the web today is not properly cached.
Yoav Weiss explores HTTP cache semantics, strategies, browser internal caches, and service workers and explains how serve your content fast and fresh.

Alice Boxhall presenting "Debugging Accessibility" at Fronteers Conference 2017 in Amsterdam, on 5 October 2017.
How do people with disabilities use the web? Well, that depends on how accessible your site is.
Many people with disabilities use assistive technologies, which adapt an existing user interface into a modality which the user can access. A large chunk of the broad spectrum covered by the term "accessibility" concerns making sure you mark up your front-end code to work well for assistive technology users.
In her talk, Alice Boxhall discusses why developers so often get this wrong, even with the best of intentions, and demonstrates some new features in Chrome which can help you understand and debug accessibility in your web pages.
