// Diversity & Inclusion - Surviving the Start-up Ecosystem - Dr. Galit Desheh

Diversity is one of the key elements for innovation and ingenuity. It creates disruption that is one of the key elements for out of the box thinking. For Israel to continue to serve as a start up nation model for innovation, it is essential that the members of the Israeli tech industry reflect the diverse world we live in.
As we increase the diversity within our community, our companies – and society as a whole – will reach greater heights of success. This all sounds great, especially in an ecosystem so hungry for talents. So how come we mostly see monolithic companies composed mostly of same type people? Dr. Galit Deshe will share her insights on what are the obstacles and how we can successfully overcome them.

// Technical Blogging with Style - Nataly Bendersky Shalem

Creating content in the form of blog posts is a great way to build your personal brand while sharing valuable information or a unique way of thinking. The style you write in, can have a big impact on how memorable your post is and what kind of brand it creates in the mind of the readers. Nataly will share some principles for good writing and look at examples of various styles, to help you write your own interesting and memorable blog posts.

// Tests - the gatekeepers of our code - Daniela Green

In this talk, we will ask and answer one of the most frequently asked questions in the software development world today - Why and how should we use tests?
Moreover, Deniela will present different types of tests and demonstrate how writing tests actually makes us write better code.
Finally, we're gonna have a small taste of what is TDD and experience a short live coding example of TDD.
