Digital Labin Conference 2022

In Istria, in the small medieval town of Labin, on September 23 and 24, Labin’s IT company Lloyds Digital painted town in the colors of the Digital Labin conference. Several workshops and lectures were organized but also talked with colleagues over craft beers and fine Istrian delicacies.

Workshop day was fantastic, but the fun really started on the second day, Speakers day. There were five workshops with different topics, divided into programmers and designers. On the Speakers day, after the opening ceremony held by Domagoj Ostović (CEO/Founder of Lloyds digital), the conference is divided into two stages, Design and UX at Hangar Arena with host Iva Šulentić and Development and Data at Mine Hall with host Ivan Šaric. Of course, we must not forget the fantastic lecturers and panelists at the end of the conference.

Vanja Bertalan (CEO at Human) discusses the Rate of change and the speed of light – How much is too much? Through the lecture, he raises awareness of the high speed of technology development, while we are mostly unaware of it.

Elena Crnković (Product Design Director at Bornfight) believes that design is very important for achieving business values. It explains how design can influence business goals and how to advance the level of design maturity in an organization.

The lecture started with Kitze (Founder of Sizzy), whom we have already met at several conferences. He presents an interesting topic: But, you’re not Facebook. Thinking that we should stop solving problems that have already been solved or problems that don’t exist at all, because we don’t work for Facebook.

Ivan Lučin (VP of Engineering at Productive) with the lecture How we dared to compete with Google? shows the company’s latest product and the problems they encountered in its implementation. An online platform for real-time collaboration through documents, which is a direct competitor to Google Docs and Jira confluence. And among the lecturers were also:

Roberto Gobo (Director of digital strategy and technology at Valamar) held a lecture on Why we developed our own real-time data streaming platform (MDP) and slashed integration cost 10x? He explained how they managed to develop the first release of a real-time data streaming platform in 6 months and how they reduced integration costs altogether.
