Leading by managing yourself - insights into a personal journey

My personal leadership journey has brought me from being a leader in volunteering to leading project teams to leading with "borrowed power" and finally to being a leader. Each of these steps has had its specific challenges and learnings. However, they have one thing in common - in order to be a good leader, you have to manage yourself and therefore know yourself very well. I will share with you my personal experiences and some insights on how to manage yourself and on leadership in challenging times.

The courage to embrace diversity - success with personality instead of elbows

This keynote speech encourages people to reflect on their personal and collective attitude towards diversity in their own company and in IT. Because in order to successfully meet the challenges of the current times, it is a risk NOT to ask ourselves how we can manage to ensure that all genders shape technology equally. After all, we can be far more successful with diversity in practice - but we can only achieve this together and without elbows.

Jenna van Hauten, MSc. Psychologist and Leadership Coach

Green code for a sustainable future? Techniques and methods for the path to "green" software.

Be it climate change, the current energy shortage or rising energy prices, there are many reasons to avoid CO2 in all areas of society. Software plays a central role in all areas of life, while energy consumption in the IT sector is constantly increasing. Integrating energy measurements into the development process and developing in a resource-conscious manner is becoming increasingly important. How can resource-saving software development contribute to saving energy and what is green code?

Is AI the salvation for our birds?

Almost half of the native bird species in Germany are threatened with extinction.
Experts who can count and recognize birds are getting older and older on average - and are therefore perhaps considered to be threatened with extinction themselves.
Is AI a possible solution to this problem?
Facts, possible approaches and a discussion about the potential and limits of AI - all presented in a short lecture.

Marc Neumann, founder

Everyone loves to talk about architecture. Only a few think code architecture

In the world of product development, a diverse ensemble of architects plays a key role - cloud architects, solution architects, software architects through to enterprise architects - and each brings their unique expertise to the table. Yet amidst this architectural symphony, the core melody - the code - often goes unsung. It's all too common to come across sprawling spaghetti code that turns into an unwieldy ball of mud.

Join me as I meander through the enchanting stories of my everyday programming adventures, drawing on ancient wisdom and architectural lore. Discover the magic of layered architecture, CQRS, ports and adapters, Separation of Concerns and the venerable SOLID principles.

During my talk, let's go on this journey together, where theory meets practice, and learn how to use these concepts to create code that is not only sustainable, but also fun to work with.

IT security - implementation & challenges in special infrastructures

IT security is one of the most important fields in IT. The advance of digitalization is also creating more opportunities for hackers to penetrate important systems and steal valuable assets (such as information) from a company. It is therefore all the more important to be up to date and to consistently protect our systems from attackers. Implementation and realization are tailor-made and are essential for our mobility of the future.

Cloud Solution vs. On-Premises Solution - Where is the trend at Deka heading? 

Bei der IT-Infrastruktur müssen Unternehmen oft entscheiden, ob sie eine On-Premise- oder eine Cloud-Lösung wollen. Bei On-Premise haben sie die volle Kontrolle über die Hardware und Daten. Bei Cloud-Lösungen sind sie flexibler und können ihre Leistungen besser anpassen. Die Entscheidung muss gut überlegt sein und hängt von den individuellen Anforderungen an Sicherheit, Kosten und Leistung ab.
