How We Built a Business on Open Source

Markus Junginger, ObjectBox

Markus’ code runs on 25% of the top-500 Android apps. It all started as side project; in 2011, he open-sourced a library that helped him develop an Android app faster. Other libraries followed and were picked up by an ever rising amount of developers. At some point Markus and his co-founder realized writing tools for developers was their real passion. With ObjectBox they made it their full-time job and a dream coming true. This talk tells the story of the journey.

Fine Tuning Your GitHub Flow – Let's Dive Into GitHub Workflows

Stefan Stölzle, GitHub

Workflows come in all shapes and sizes. Teams developing web apps have slightly different needs than those working with embedded software, and you have probably heard more than one recommendation on the "best" workflow. In working with hundreds of teams, we have learned that the best workflow is the simplest workflow. It is easier to teach and easier to follow – and both results in more consistent applications. In this session, Stefan will break out the markers and learn how you can trim the fluff from your workflows.
