Why Your Team Won’t Low-Code
Advanced Patterns and Anti-patterns for Great Mobile Apps (Part I)
With low-code, you can create complex products without so much as a blink. So, why isn’t everyone jumping on the bandwagon? Because low-code raises as many questions as it answers: Should I fear for my job? Can I trust this black box? Will my team adopt this? Will this speed up development to the point where things will break? Join a front-end developer as he shares his perspectives and thoughts about his journey of considering low-code as viable approach to software development.
There’s no getting around the fact that mobile is a whole different game, and you need to leave behind the web mentality. In this session, we will share the development patterns you should use—as well as the ones you should avoid—to overcome limited device resources, flaky internet connections and other mobile app challenges. Your mobile apps will never be the same again.

Build an App in 2 Hours
The Concrete Foundations of Architecture 
You’re busy. We get it. Learning a new technology takes time and dedication. In this two-hour session, we’ll help you build your first OutSystems app. Not only that, but you’ll leave with a complete understanding of the tools, docs and training available so you can continue your learning when you go back to the office. Best of all, you’ll take an app with you to prove it.
Architecture doesn't have to be scary. All it takes is a down-to-earth approach. In this session, an expert who has been setting up architecture and explaining the concepts ever since the early days of OutSystems will share his knowledge. He’ll explain, in simple concrete terms, how to integrate with legacy systems, how to stratify data persistence with performance in mind, how to manage master data that spans across all systems and how to adopt a microservices strategy for continuous delivery. It’s all your questions answered in terms you understand.

Managing Projects in OutSystems 
An OutSystems MVP will walk you through his journey as a .NET developer and architect who adopted OutSystems as part of his toolset. He’s not a millionaire yet, but he’s had quite a successful career so far.
Have you ever asked yourself "How do I keep on innovating if I need to deliver faster?" If so, this session will show you how. You’ll see that the faster you deliver, the more time you’ll have to focus on innovating. We’ll demonstrate how to derive a vision for your development project and how to gather context from the business and its users. Even better, you’ll discover how to estimate user stories and features at the speed at which only low-code can deliver, so you can keep on innovating in a speedy world.

Panel Discussion - Lessons from the Low-Code Journey
Ensuring Quality Throughout the Software Development Lifecycle
Hear from a variety of customers and partners how their low-code journey started and has evolved. From best practices for those in the early stages, to lessons learned by organizations who are pushing the low-code envelope, this session will provide practical guidance and insights for all companies using low-code to become more digital.
Building great user experiences is about more than interaction and performance. If the app doesn't do what's expected, users will simply stop using it. As apps mature from experimental prototypes to mission critical and highly scalable, ensuring continuous quality becomes an essential part of delivery. But the number of tests, even for a small application, can rapidly become unmanageable, and running them has a cost. Learn from our experts and partners how to define the best test strategy for your mobile apps.
