                The Origins of Notepad Conf - Todd H Gardner The origin story of the testiest conference around: NotepadConf! Hear how the misguided questionnaire of one BigCorp Project Management Office led to the concept and realization of the premier conference for plain-text enthusiasts and notepad.exe users. Did you arrive on the DLR and use a contactless payment card? Now you have the chance to find out how TFL made that work - Ed Blackburn How did you arrive at the Excel Centre today? Did you use public transport? Did you use a Contactless Payment Card? If so you used a back office system created in .NET. A system that pieces together your journey, calculates your fare and charges you off-line making sure you pay the cheapest fares available. A brave new world compared to the Oyster card embedded C client and massive PL/SQL batch job. We’ll see how the fares component calculates your fare accurately considering, your taps, most common journeys, capping and disruptions. Find out how you can take a new system from a Minimal Viable Product to a fully-fledged production system supporting millions of users. We’ll look into the strategies used to design this system in an agnostic fashion to work with any mode of transport, from tubes, to buses, even to potentially cycle hire or congestion card; from any reader, from a tube gate, to a mobile revenue inspection device or in time potentially any NFC device such as a mobile phone or wearable device. Get a glimpse into the future of travel in London. Passion makes the World go round - Michał Śliwoń & Rafał Legiędź It usually takes a lot of time and effort to create something valuable, but sometimes things are simpler than you might think. All you need is passion. A story about two friends and their love for conferences, which started with nothing but a vision of a great event they would like to have in their country. Pursuing this goal for three years during which passion turned into obsession, they try finding ways to create a genuine atmosphere that their peers would get addicted to. Their journey shows how instead of overanalysing things, it’s better to start small and take a first step. It’s also about how passion helps to create and do things you love without slightest sign of boredom or tiredness.
