    When Robots Hit the Road: New Challenges in Multi-Vehicle Coordination

    The practical realization of multi-robot systems includes two important domains that are signaling strong growth: transport (e.g., multi-vehicle ride-sharing, automated truck platoons) and logistic operations (e.g., warehouse robots, automated pickup and delivery). The commonality of these two application domains is that they require solutions to core problems such as task assignment, path planning, and formation control. In this talk, I shed some light on new challenges in these areas, and present insights that pertain...

  • The idea of the Headless CMS is becoming more and more popular in the industry and is widely seen as the next step for content management. Using the CMS as pure content management and whatever tool you want to build the front-end can give lots of flexibility and also comes with a host of advantages (and its own problems).

    But why does everyone talk about JavaScript and Single Page Apps whenever Headless CMS is mentioned? What is the JAM stack? How does Progressive Web Apps fit into all this and why is JavaScript not always the answer when you're serving content to your users?

    In this talk I'll cover what a Headless CMS is and why it's useful for both clients and developers, our experience at Studio 24 of using WordPress and Drupal as a Headless CMS and how we tackled building a progressive front-end to a Headless CMS in PHP and Symfony.

    Copied event description:
    "In recent years the internet has become a key battleground for electoral politics.
