About: Hard skills are specific, teachable abilities that can be defined and measured, such as typing, writing, math, reading and the ability to use software programs. By contrast, soft skills are less tangible and harder to quantify, such as etiquette, getting along with others, listening and engaging in small talk. How to combine them in your work…and life.

18:55 – 20:00 – Second talk: Colin Bendell “Closing the Loop: 5 strategies to connecting the dots of data to user experience”

Attributing causation is difficult. How did this micro service impact user experience? Are we sure that this user behavior was caused by this code change? The distribution of user experience behavior is always very wide with many variables. This is a challenge when trying to link causation. In this talk, we will explore 5 strategies that how Cloudinary is using to closing the causation loop – from application telemetry to end user experience.
