First day at code.talks 2023: Learning About Security, AI, and Design

I attended the code.talks 2023 conference on Thursday, September 14, 2023. The conference was held in Hamburg, Germany, and it brought together a diverse group of speakers and attendees to discuss the latest trends in technology. I attended six talks on a variety of topics, including security, artificial intelligence, and design.

My attended Talks:

  • Welcome Speech: The conference kicked off with a welcome speech from Dr. Julia Imlauer, who talked about the importance of security and privacy in the age of technology.

  • Cyberattacks easily implemented with AI?: This talk explored the potential for artificial intelligence to be used to create more sophisticated cyberattacks. The speaker, Isabelle Ewald, discussed the different ways that AI could be used to automate attacks and evade detection.

  • 24/7 in uncertain times: how to reconcile high-performance hosting and innovation projects with IT security and data protection: This talk discussed the challenges of balancing the need for innovation with the need for security and data protection. The speaker, Carolin Désirée Töpfer, talked about the different ways to mitigate risk and ensure that systems are secure even in the face of uncertainty.

  • The Evolution of UI/UX Design: Exploring Latest Trends and the Impact of AI: This talk explored the latest trends in UI/UX design and how artificial intelligence is being used to improve the user experience. The speaker, Ali Amin Agha, talked about the different ways that AI can be used to create more personalized and engaging experiences.

  • Why you fail at Application Security - and how to fix it: This talk discussed the common reasons why organizations fail at application security and how to improve their security posture. The speaker, Annemarie Paul, talked about the different ways to identify and mitigate security risks in applications.

  • Frischer Wind für Legacy-Software: Wie man alte Anwendungen auf neue Beine stellt: This talk talked about how to modernize legacy software to make it more secure, efficient, and scalable. The speaker, Christoph Burmeister, talked about the different approaches to legacy modernization and how to choose the right approach for your organization.

  • Let's Build React Context From Scratch in JS: This talk taught how to use React Context to manage state in React applications. The speaker, Evyatar Alush, talked about the benefits of using React Context and how to implement it in your own applications.

  • The Evolution of Design Tokens: In this talk, Nils Wiere will explore the evolution of design tokens, from their early days as a way to share colors and typography to their current use as a comprehensive system for managing all aspects of a design system. He will also discuss the benefits of using design tokens, and how to get started with them.

I learned a lot from the talks I attended at code.talks 2023. I am now more aware of the threats posed by cyberattacks and how to mitigate them. I am also more familiar with the latest trends in UI/UX design and how AI can be used to improve the user experience. I am excited to put my new knowledge into practice and make a positive impact on the world of technology.
