Talks

I spoke at my very first conference in 2014 and enjoy spreading my knowledge since. I see my talks as little "acts" where I not only stand in front of people and share the topics that I feel passionate about, but I also try to make my talks engaging for the audience. This includes live demos, building a PHP package live on stage, or interacting with Alexa while I give my talk.

Below is a list of all my talks, that I have given over the course of the last years.
