#ExtremeContracts
Speaker pitch 
Extreme Contracts is a concept I created to redefine negotiation in any job happening in the turbulent and complex environment of knowledge work: designers, developers, architects, managers, photographers and everybody who is in charge of delivering projects with volatile requirements, uncertainty and tons of skills required.

Architecture with uncertainty
Speaker pitch
Do we really know what is a good architecture ? How could we possibly explain that some supposed poorly designed system had a better ability to evolve and adapt ? Is worse better* ?

In the middle of uncertainty no perfect solution exists, chasing the silver bullet is a losing game. All model are wrong some are useful, let's explore how could we possibly architect for discovery and not 'only' for delivery.

A good architecture goes beyond only technical concerns and make it easy to share knowledge.

* Worse is better essay

The Importance of Fun in the Workplace
Speaker pitch
An in-depth look at what makes software development a roller coaster where the highs of 0 compiler warnings are quickly cancelled out by the pain of long hours, bad requirements, endless configuration, clueless managers and a plethora of other issues which make death by a thousand cuts seem like a good idea….
They will answer questions such as: “Why is programming often called an art despite having its underpinnings in formal logic?” “How can I rediscover the delight I felt when I first started coding?” “What’s that rush I feel when my test passes? Am I addicted to TDD?”
Combining Psychology, Philosophy and Computer Science, Dr Holly Cummins will present a series of practical tips to help you rediscover the euphoria that you felt the very first time a metal box in front of you came to life and cried out “Hello World”.

Dynamique de groupes et structuration du temps
Dynamique de groupes et structuration du temps :
la théorie organisationnelle de Berne, une autre approche agile.

Speaker pitch
De l'individu seul aux interactions de groupes, tout est échange, tout est transaction.
La théorie organisationnelle de Berne reprend l'un des concepts fondateurs de l'analyse transactionnelle, la structuration du temps.
En tant que coach, facilitateur, manager, le décryptage de ces moments de vie appliqués à l'échelle d'un groupe ou d'une organisation, donnera des clefs de compréhension pour envisager les risques encourus par les membres réunis dans cette aventure commune.
Après avoir rapidement posé les bases structurantes de l'analyse transactionnelle, nécessaires à la compréhension de tous, cette conférence présentera comment l'individu structure son temps et pourquoi, pour ensuite transposer cette structuration aux étapes par lesquelles l'individu passe pour s'intégrer dans un groupe ou une organisation.
Enfin, il s'agira de donner des perspectives sur une ébauche de diagnostic, visant à résoudre les dysfonctionnements de groupe que la structuration du temps révèle.

The lizard loop
Speaker pitch
Backing up Rigor with Intuition. When talking about "systems thinking" we often talk about validating your assumptions with research and data. But we rarely talk about closing that loop, and instinctively assessing the output of your research for bias and subjectivity.
I'll talk about why this is important, and some practical tools to help you do it in your workplace.

Event Storming : improving your facilitation skills
Speaker Pitch
Event Storming is a great tool to explore complex domains and put things quickly in motion, from big picture to software design. The format is easy to understand, and provided you have the right number of stickies and markers, you can jump into an Event Storming session is a blitz.

However, during the first edition of the Event Storming Summit in July 2018, I came to realize something. Most of the people who were present at the summit, who were advanced Event Storming practitioners and had facilitated loads of sessions, came from a technical background. To become good at facilitating an Event Storming, we all had to acquire a whole new skillset that we did not possess upfront, new facilitation skills.

In this talk, we will explore how you can improve your skills to become a better Event Storming facilitator. I will share my experience as a DDD practitioner, an agile coach and a serious player to address different techniques and open new perspectives, mixing things up a little. We will explore for example professional training approaches, playfulness, coaching postures and questioning techniques. And we will review some of the most dreadful anti-patterns and pitfalls you can reach as a facilitator.

Whether you are new at Event Storming or you already have experience, you will end this talk with a richer and broader perspective on your job as a facilitator.

Building observable distributed systems
Speaker pitch
I will speak about the need of becoming more comfortable with failure, especially when working with the complexity that comes with distributed systems. In my experience, a critical part of building applications is acknowledging that we cannot possibly prepare for everything... but there are ways to be ready for it.
My talk will go through how we can build system with observability in mind (using metrics, high-cardinality logging, distributed tracing...) in order to have the right tools to understand how our applications really behave.

Beyond the Black Hole: Product Management for Continuous Delivery
Speaker pitch
Continuous Delivery can be a hard sell to product managers, even in small, healthy organisations. The benefits sound implausible, the costs high, and it’s really hard to understand all that it enables. However, CD has been hugely beneficial at the leading edge of product management.
As deployment pipelines have taken root, there has also been a shift in how we see and measure user value. Take these trends together, and there’s been a giant leap forwards in how to prioritise work and judge its success.
When our teams at ORG stopped throwing features into a black hole, and instead closed the loop with feedback, it had surprising knock-on effects. Come to this session and find out more!

Empowerment through Observability
Speaker pitch
Leaning into building observable systems will empower us to move past the rat race which is “test everything before release”. 
For the last year, Abby has been embedding herself in the world of operations to uncover how the tools and techniques used by operations engineers can support testing.
This talk will examine Abby's experiences improving team and business outcomes through a focus on observability with topics like:
- Reimagining how we define useful alerts based on experiences writing test automation suites
- Building test environments to continuously deliver applications when dependent systems move at a much slower pace
- Asking “what is normal” for systems that have not previously defined baselines

This focus on operations tooling has been driven by the last ten years of growing DevOps adoption. DevOps speeds up feedback loops, delivers value faster, and shortens time to validate before release while simultaneously tricking us into thinking we still can test everything in a CD pipeline.
The extensive cost associated with creating and maintaining “realistic” pre-production environments still leaves many issues which just can’t be imagined or recreated in even the best case scenario.
The large scale and messy reality that is real customer use cases like global traffic or malformed historical data will always uncover new understanding about our systems.
To identify and triage these behaviours we need to reimagine testing through the lens of observability.
By understanding Abby's lessons learned, you will be empowered to understand and apply observability to your own product.

Le paradoxe du poisson rouge
Speaker pitch
Dans un monde complexe en perpétuel mouvement, un pays semble se distinguer dans son aisance à l’appréhender : la Chine. Un animal particulier y est célébré depuis longtemps : le poisson rouge - pas celui qui tourne en rond dans son bocal mais la carpe koï, élégante et colorée, ornant majestueusement les bassins des jardins publics.
La culture populaire lui confère 8 grandes vertus, toutes issues de la sagesse chinoise, lui permettant de vivre en harmonie avec son environnement et de saisir les opportunités avec agilité. Ces idées sont autant d’inspiration dans notre développement personnel que dans nos pratiques professionnelles.
Je vous invite donc à les découvrir afin d’ouvrir votre champ de perspectives et réveiller le Chinois qui sommeille en vous ! ;-)

Flow: The New World of Business Agility
Speaker pitch
Flow is taking the world of agile by storm with it’s simplified framework for business agility and as a powerful antidote for those organisations who are struggling with their scaled agile implementations. Fin Goulding, Founder and CIO of his own startup the Flow Academy will show how the framework goes beyond traditional technical agile methodologies (such as Scrum) and not only encompasses business functions but also extends to Customers as well. Focusing on Customers is key, even before you start thinking about Products, and Flow actively places them within your feedback loops in order to inform your work-design and overall business strategy. Fin will also show how Flow is obsessed with being pro-value, delivers work at pace (in two-day cycles or less), is supercharged by lean software development and Cloud but also provides tangible ways to practice continuous improvement. This true end-to-end 'Business' approach is underpinned by Customer innovation/segmentation, Executive portfolio planning and a dash of cultural transformation – which is at the heart of any good agile transformation.

Mob Programming : je ne développerai plus jamais seul
Speaker pitch
Chez Fluo, la première fois que nous avons entendu parler de mob programming nous étions un peu perplexes.
Dans une startup comme la nôtre, 5/6 développeurs à se partager un clavier ça semblait très curieux.
Un beau matin, histoire de débloquer deux de nos collègues coincés sur un dev, nous avons tout de même décidé d'essayer.
Avec un rétro, nous avons alors projeté le code sur un écran. Ca a tellement bien marché que depuis, contre toute attente, nous avons continué et sommes devenus fan de cette pratique.

Lors de cette session, nous vous proposons de vous en dire un peu plus : concrètement comment ça marche, ce que cela nous a apporté, et pourquoi nous pensons que c'est si efficace.
