Harry Brundage worked closely with the CTO at Shopify scaling it from only a few thousand merchants to powering the biggest flash sales on the internet, but something inspired him to make a huge change. He's passionate about building the same high quality engineering experience and platform, which led him to start Gadget in 2020.  

ABOUT OUR GUEST
 

Harry Brundage is the co-founder and acting CTO of Gadget, the serverless stack for eCommerce app developers. Before Gadget, he worked at Shopify in numerous capacities, including building and scaling Shopify's backend infrastructure and frontend technology stack. After Shopify, Harry has built many other systems, allowing him to see first-hand how repetitive software development can be. This became the impetus for Harry and his colleagues to found Gadget -- it just doesn't need to be this hard!

As an established leader in AI, Peter Voss is passionate about answering the question of making AI more and more human. What is (and isn't) AI? How much further does AI need to go to reach that "human" threshold? Should we be concerned about this closing of the gap, or is there a bigger problem to keep in mind? We discuss all this and more in Educative Sessions.

 
ABOUT OUR GUEST
 

Peter Voss started out in electronics engineering, but quickly moved into software. After developing a comprehensive ERP software package, Peter took his first software company from a zero to 400-person IPO in seven years. Peter founded SmartAction.ai in 2009, which developed the first AGI-based call center automation technology. Now, in his latest venture, Aigo.ai, he has created a ‘Conversational AI’ technology with a mission of providing hyper-intelligent hyper-personal assistants for everyone.

Liz will discuss what she actually uses AI technologies for & if it's worth it.

We know that not every line of code is equally valuable, but how do you work on valuable things? Developers obsess over frameworks and code quality, but in reality the best outcomes are more determined by product-market-founder fit than code quality. Swyx is a former hedge fund investor turned developer and has some interesting thoughts based on seeing through 2 unicorn startups.

This is the story of an A/B test which failed miserably. What seemed like a brilliant idea lead to the conversion rate and revenue per visitor fall inexplicably through the floor. In the series of epiphanies which follow, our protagonist happens upon the realisation that his failure actually saved his employer millions of pounds.

ABOUT OUR GUEST
 

Oliver Palmer ran his first A/B test back in 2008 while contracting at a London law firm. He discovered with a handful of experiments and a few false starts that he was able to halve their cost of acquisition on Google’s most notoriously expensive PPC keyword.
