Community panel - Trigger phrases, controversy and a bit of ranting
Blockchain has no applications, and it's just hype. Angular is more opinionated, and that's why large corporations prefer it over React. Kubernetes is the Linux of the cloud-native world. Every month there is a new DevOps tool that will save your deployment pipeline. We hear and read these controversial statements very often and a lot of fierce commentaries about them. Blog posts, opinions, and discussions on Reddit or real life are part of the "ranting" culture around software engineers. Join this panel and listen to what our panelists have to say about trigger phrases.

I am in love with anything reactive & streaming, especially if built with Scala, Akka and the rest of their wonderful ecosystem. I love to help communities grow and I founded myself the Reactive Amsterdam meetup which has been very successful over the last couple of years, with great numbers and sponsors. My biggest passion beside tech is bicycle touring – the biggest adventure so far cycling from Amsterdam to Rome, my home town. Oh, I run a meetup about that too!
