Announcement of StartUp focused 102nd ONLINE DevClub.lv

HI!

It is almost a tradition to have Start-up focused DevClub.lv at the turn of the year. This time we intended to make an event to help us to consider that we live in a common IT ecosystem where we all have opportunities and potential.

In addition, we are looking for new ways how in this online period of our lives to provide more opportunities for event attendees to participate in it. Some events ago we tried to have “DevClub’s kitchen” as a place where anyone can connect and communicate but it didn’t really work. This time we decided to try out panel discussion as a format where attendees could participate more than in regular presentations. So – if you already have questions or issues you would like to be discussed in any of the panel discussions, please let us know by sending them to our e-mail. If you don’t have them yet, don’t worry – you will have opportunities to ask them at the event.

Please pay attention that this time event will happen on WednesdayDecember 15 (start 18:00) and all content will be in Latvian.

You are welcome to StartUp focused 102nd DevClub.lv. Please register on Hopin.

  • Anna Sundukova from Accenture will give a talk on Li-Fi – innovative, secure and green networking technology“.
    This will be a broad overview and introduction to Li-Fi technology – that is high speed, bi-directional and networked wireless communication. As we all know, there are quite a lot of problems that Wi-Fi is facing right now when everything needs to be connected, and it does not seem that current idea of 5G is the only solution for that. So, let’s get a bit more familiar how light can actually become a data and see if it is a future replacement of Wi-Fi.

  • Rūdolfs Kreicbergs from LMT will give a talk “How quantum technologies affect network security today“.
    This talk will discuss some of the ways quantum technologies are already impacting network security standards and requirements. To understand the impact, we need to start with the basics (ciphers and other cryptograhic functions, protocols, standards, etc) and their usage in various solutions (KPI-based handshakes, streamed data integrity validation, secure static content delivery, etc.). Quantum computers have been known for a while as a security threat – but it’s not so straight forward, nor is the industry unprepared for this. Will discuss how post-quantum cryptography addresses the risks and how quantum technologies such as quantum key distribution (QKD) can improve the security of future systems. Lastly, will brief on a collaboration project with LU MII to use quantum key distribution (QKD) over LMT optical cables for encrypting real-life data.
    This talk does not require prior cryptography knowledge, but understanding the basics may help.

    Rūdolfs Kreicbergs is a hands-on engineering manager with a background in mathematics, cryptography, application security and web-based systems. Having experienced various technical roles as software engineer, data analyst, cryptoanalyst and software architect, Rūdolfs advocates for simplicity and efficiency both in architecture and in development processes. He believes companies needs more focus on sustainable engineering culture to enable the engineers to achieve the architecture goals we all love to talk about. For Rūdolfs, the answer is simple – provide mastery, autonomy and purpose, and the engineers will do the rest.
