Summit 2018: Same same, but different: Lessons learned from building the same feature twice a 1Y/ Shachar Brenner

Our product wasn't complete without this one feature, so we went ahead and built it. Soon enough we came to realize users didn't use it, and even worse, they were still feeling the pain we planned to solve. We ended up finding ourselves in a situation where we had to rebuild a fresh feature from scratch. This experience thought us some good lessons that would should be heard by anyone building anything.

Summit 2018: How I built the fastest graph database on earth / Roi Lipman

The graphdb world hasn't changed much for the past couple of years, the same major players applying the same old know techniques, when I started creating my own version of a graph database, I followed the same path, but to make a difference and really standout in the crowd something had to be done differently. This talk will introduce you to and guide you through what I've learnt in the past two years creating the fastest graphdb today using basic mathematics, I hope your linear-algebra is polished!

This is a lightweight, (hopefully) entertaining talk, in which I will present insights and anecdotes from my studies in a laboratory that combines artificial intelligence with human-computer collaborations, and how I got to intentionally stumble into people.

Summit 2018: Creating a Product Your Users Will Love / Reut Golan

As product managers, our biggest fear is creating a product that nobody needs. So, how to make sure your users will want your product?

In the B2C world, you have to be both data-driven and customer-centric. To make your product better, you need to:

Collect input from users
Understand why users churn or stay
Apply that data using MVP and fast iterations
We tried at Soluto different ways to collect data in the right time and context. I would like to share with you what we did and learned in the process, show methods to collect user input, what worked and what didn’t. I will also showcase examples of how to use the data and create a product your users will actually use - and love.

Summit 2018: Storing your data in the cloud: doing it right / Orit Wasserman

We all use cloud object storage extensively, like Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage and others. However, not many utilize its unique capabilities and advanced features, such as versioning, security, life cycle... Throughout my work developing Ceph object storage and supporting large customers, I’ve seen a lot of incorrect and sub-optimal usage. This session will briefly discuss object storage design, highlight valuable features and review practical dos and don’ts.

Summit 2018: How to Find Growth Material & Learn x2 Faster / Oren Ellenbogen

I've shared more than 2000 posts on SoftwareLeadWeekly.com in the past 5+ years. To share these posts, I had to read almost 14000 posts during that time, which includes blog posts, videos, books and interviews (podcasts).

I want to share some of my lessons learned about:

Which kind of "Growth Material" you should focus on?
Where and how to find great content (good value vs. noise ratio)?
How to set time for learning? (I'm a father of 2, I know how hard it can be)
How to consume knowledge X2 faster?
Are you seeking ways to up your game? If so, you'll enjoy this talk.
