SHARE IT 2019
CONNECTING KNOWLEDGE, SOLUTIONS, AND EXPERIENCE
WHAT IS SHARE IT?
Even though in Riga there is a wide choice of IT conferences, regions have their own specifics and challenges. IT professionals in Vidzeme are keeping up with the trends, but so are they willing to strengthen their IT community and interpersonal connections. Therefore, local people and their friends are the main target audience and content creators of Share IT.

So you have super-sophisticated security toolbox and engineers, but you still don’t feel safe? You’re absolutely right! The reference threat everyone today is not the random hacker or ransomware infection, it’s the state-sponsored attacks! And the reason for that is the lack of our ability to effectively defend against those. Modern solutions can’t handle a well-crafted targeted attack. It’s a matter of time. And when successful, the blast radius is massive. Because if you run a power grid, electricity supply might get interrupted. And if you have an election campaign the public opinion might be manipulated due to fake news. These attacks are rarely detected, but always carry a big damage potential.
A practical, hands-on presentation about various use cases of computer vision. The aim of the presentation is to show that computer vision is not black magic, but a simple and intuitive process of solving real-life problems. The presentation will include practical demonstrations of code solving real-life problems.
Regular Expressions (RX) is a tool for handling texts of almost any complexity, in any programming language. When one masters Regular Expressions, one has virtually no need for special-purpose text handling functions. They allow us to verify, search, extract, replace and match texts. It's an elegant and handy tool for every coder. In the workshop, we look at major RX concepts and solve some real-life challenges.
There is a direct relationship between a dip in user satisfaction and a decrease in good user experience(UX). In this talk, you will get to know how UX influences your customers and affects company income and what are the main principles to ensure good experience across your web platforms.
Trying to do test automation on a colossal scale is a huge challenge to tackle. We've built a web app performance and load testing tool Loadero that can do precisely that. We learned a lot about building resource-intensive apps, and we want to share some of that knowledge with you.
This session is addressed to business representatives who have a need for a digital solution, but who is not a specialist in an IT field. Understanding on how to follow the solution development process, how to communicate with designers and developers in order to gain the best value for the business. (Topics - User experience, Business Analysis, Agile development)
iPhone is more than 10 years old and creating applications for this platform has become a de-facto standard. It is obvious that the demand for iOS supported products is there. Understand how to leverage this ever-growing market, by providing meaningful user experiences and finding the talent you need to make it happen.
You may have already heard of the term "open data". If you're not, it's definitely time to listen. The ability to use data today is a significant driver for the development of any person or business. However, our experience shows that many still face major challenges in understanding the value of data and how to manage it. Before we can get the benefits of using data - smart decisions, automation, work efficiency and optimization, innovation and new business opportunities - we need to understand what data we have. This session will focus on how to discover and manage your datasets.
Knowledge on how to benefit from commercial or publicly available data value is a key ingredient of any modern participant of society – citizen, student, entrepreneur or municipality. Our experience indicates all stakeholders face a challenge when starting the journey of data platform creation and data value discovery. For customers to succeed in this journey Squalio has developed methodology and services that in cooperation with ALSO will guide to data value discovery.
Live coding session where we will create a simple application from scratch, use GitLab CI to run some tests, build a production-ready Docker image and deploy to AWS ECS cluster. If you want to follow along on your own laptop, you can prepare by installing Docker and registering to GitLab and AWS.

The design thinking approach is a unique and successful approach that might be used not only in design but also in product development and startup product shaping. Design thinking clarifies milestones and makes realize - difficulties are not the end, - it is the beginning. And then - everything starts! To work, prototype, test, and help to solve problems. This topic might be useful for visionaries, idea creators and other specialists, who want to know "how to".
In this session, I share my experience of deployment challenges in a big client context, where we had a bunch of Drupal sites with a similar setup. Duplicated deployment code led to tech debt. Every small change across projects started to take forever. On top of that, there are subsets that share common code: environments (dev, staging, production), regions (EU, US, AU), different software versions (D7, D8). How to deduplicate that deployment code?
An important requirement for success is the ability to scale effectively with limited resources.
We will explore how "Estoty" tackled the challenge of creating 1000 levels without a level designer using procedural generation.
