After that we will welcome Jesse Taverne from Experius, who as Magento certified front-end developer will share with you his experience in speech "Need for Speed - Optimizing for Performance on the Frontend".

Presentations & Speakers

Manos Tsagkias (904Labs)

Manos leads 904Labs, an Amsterdam-based artificial-intelligence company that offers the first commercially available self-learning search engine for e-commerce and content providers. Manos holds a Ph.D. in search engine technology and has more than ten years of experience in search, recommendation, and predictive analytics systems.

Manos’ current mission is to disseminate the importance and the implications of search in today’s online businesses.

TECH Talks TOPIC: Building e-commerce focused search engine using A.I

Search has become ubiquitous in a large range of applications from web search and online ads, to product search, recommendations, and personal assistants. In this talk, we visit some applications for search, quickly recap 50 years of search technological advancements, understand why e-shops miss the opportunities from search, and how A.I. can help boost the search experience for a user and increase revenue. The talk will go over current search practices and the current state-of-the-art in search, and it will be peppered with real-world examples from Dutch shops.

Jesse Taverne (Experius)

Jesse is an experienced front-end developer with a big interest in responsive design and performance optimization. He believes that the challenge of the modern world of web design is getting your content right for everyone, everywhere, regardless of device or network conditions. Jesse is a Magento certified front-end developer currently working at Experius, an e-commerce system integrator.

TECH Talks TOPIC: "Need for Speed - Optimizing for Performance on the Frontend".

In e-commerce, one of the most prized feats of a platform is its speed. Ofcourse usability and design play key-roles as well - but when research points out that the majority of visitors will bounce if left hanging too long, it's easy to make a case for its importance.

In this talk we will dive deeper in real-world use-cases and practical examples of performance optimization on the frontend at Experius (and why Google's Pagespeed Insights is useful, but also a trap).
