Key Speakers


    Senior Development Lead, Endava

    Gleb has been a practice lead on front-end and mobile practices within the company. A go-to person for technical and exciting stuff. Technology polyglot interested in innovation with award winning mobile apps that can find joy even in mathematical-analysis if it serves a good purpose. Has helped clients build awesome projects in New York, London and Dublin. Likes reading fantasy books, building and racing drones when he isn't learning something new.


    He will share with you the journey of his team starting from a moment of crisis to being a successful team and product. Nowadays, there a lot of emerging technologies, a big number of new frameworks and programming languages coming out. It’s often hard to keep the pace. Getting out of your comfort zone, trying out a new language or platform always keeps you on your toes. It helps you grow, deliver, advance and be able to fill any gap in a team.


    VP, Digital Product Strategy, Endava

    A creative executive with 20 years of experience in product strategy, UX, and design. As VP, Digital Product Strategy at Endava, I work with our clients to ensure they have the right digital strategy in place, then tailor innovative solutions to the business challenges that stand in the way using the right synthesis of Endava’s end-to-end service offers. Previous to Endava, I specialized in digital entertainment, releasing over 150 games across most major platforms, including collaborating with Microsoft on the #1 Free Game on the Windows Store.


    An interface is the critical interpreter between people and their technology. In the near future, a paradigm shift will revolutionize our interfaces by causing them to recede, eliminating most layers of abstraction that stand between technology and experience and, ultimately, bestowing humans with superhuman capabilities. Join us as we explore these ideas and their implications for the future.


    Digital transformation, professional

    Sonia is Quantitative Methods professor and a regular conference speaker on digital transformation and data storytelling. Statistics, math, data and stories are the tools she uses to help companies move toward digital transformation era. She leads the Apps design based on UX and the decision making process of each user. Her area of expertise includes Data Analysis with R, metrics and data storytelling. 


    The talk’s main objective is to show the positive effect of apps designed to satisfy users’ needs and how the output is not just a great dashboard but a data story. We will cover this idea with real cases and the software engineering challenges involved.

    Many companies want to adopt big data technologies for data driven decisions making, but when most of their processes are based on people intuition without metrics that allow to find hits and misses, the first step to achieve this goal is to make a digital transformation.
