Track: Xtra(ck)

Always nice to have a little Xtra fun!  We admit it: we have a kick-ass program. But Øredev also arranges all the parts that let you enjoy, re-energize, even relax while you learn. It also makes for better, easier network building. This year we boost the fun with a bonus activities track – the Xtra(ck) – running in parallel.


10:15 - 11:05

Take Control of Your Development Career

As developers, we tend to spend a lot of time focused on languages, frameworks, and tools. But few of us spend time thinking about our careers or personal growth. Michael talks about simple things you can do today that pay off in a big way tomorrow. Take control of your Development Career. Be the developer you wanted to be. It is easier than you might think.

Understanding hypnosis

Lina will explain to you how the mind works according to the study of hypnosis. You will come to understand why hypnosis is safe and will not in anyway make you do things that you do not want to do. She will also briefly tell you why people have their own personalities, habits and behaviors and why is it so difficult for some people to change for the better. And also what does hypnosis have to do with everyday life and how it can be a useful tool for everyone

Lina Esa

Lina is a hypnotherapist and a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. She will take you into a nice hypnotic stress free state in her session. But first she wants to explain to you that Hypnosis is NOT mind control and will definitely NOT make you bark (unless you want to)!

From seed to cup

Ever wonder how it all happens? Mattias Sjöbäck will take you on the coffee journey "from seed to cup," with a special focus on the workers involved (pickers, farmers...). With description and real images from farms, drying mills, wet mills, the roasting process and so on, you'll be entertained and gain a clearer sense of the life of a coffee farmer, picker and roaster. You'll also get to know the difference between regular coffee and excellent coffee.
