Christian Heilman had two main aims at Codemotion Berlin: to make all developers fall in love with and to make people less afraid of robots taking over the world.
Not a simple task – but he certainly made great strides during his fascinating talks at our conference.
So how can we convince people that they should worry less about robots taking over their jobs tomorrow or whether we’ll be mowed down by a self-driving car – and focus instead on the amazing possibilities of how AI can transform our lives for the better?
If robots can carry out a number of everyday tasks, wouldn’t this free up time and space in our brains for more stimulating stuff?
By highlighting the many benefits of AI, we can encourage others to embrace the revolution – which is already here – that is deep.
As a developer evangelist, Christian Heilmann is also committed to making code and coders work efficiently and getting more done quickly. But he also says this shouldn’t mean we have to compromise on quality – or lose sight of what it is we are doing.
He’s dedicated the last 20 years on making the web thrive, but he stresses thatalone won’t get you through without teamwork and a good handover.
But he also brought to the stage a few tricks and ideas to encourage those who aren’t fans of dear old JS that they can find a way to love it. The wild world of, says Christian, is here to stay. Just look at its incredible evolution from a fringe to the most used one on the market!
We’re sure there were quite a few converts tofollowing Christian’s talk at Codemotion Berlin.
