Agent Conf 2018
This year has only just begun and the Sulu team has already attended a conference: Agent Conf 2018.
The whole talks were filmend and should be available in the near future on the conference site.
Keynote from Max Stoiber
And that was also the topic of the talk: contributing to open source. In my opinion one of his messages was "Open code = better code".
Another good point he made was how you can help an open source project getting better:
- Create issues with your problems or your feature requests
- Create PR for the documentation
He also has a good advise for the maintainers of an project: "sometimes you should just say NO!"
But the sentence in his talk that touched me most was: "Can I make it open source?" The Sulu team answered this question a few years ago with "Of course wecan" and today we are very glad to have made this decision.

As our team member Daniel already correctly mentioned in his tweet.
Your brain doesn't have a fix flag
On the second day the attendees awaited a very special and very important talk. As the topic shows this talk wasn't about programmin, it was about one of the most important topics overall: Mental Health.
Sara Vieira shared her very personal experience with panic/social/anxiety disorders and how she has now the power to hold a speech about this topic.
Thanks for making us laugh while listening to your absolutly honestly talk!

This talk was also a very special one because of this funny guy called Kitze.
He's the creator projects like reactacademy.io, ok-google.io, sizzy.co and he also published some open source libraries.
We heard a lot of great talks about very important topics and met super nice people. The event was very professionally organised and everything went very smoothly.
I am very glad that we've got the opportunity to join such an awesome conference in our small hometown of Dornbirn. It is truly a big win for the developer community around the Lake of Constance and it's amazing that so many high profile people from around the globe took the chance to come to Austria and share their know how with all of us.
A really big THANK YOU goes out to all the organizers, see you next year! ;)
