The Evolution of a Cybersecurity Specialist to Data Specialist - Stack-X x JuniorDevSG

Speaker: Shane Woo, Quantitative Analyst and former Associate Cybersecurity Specialist, GovTech

Shane graduated from the NUS Business School in 2018 with a degree in Business Administration. Despite this non-technical background, he realised he wasn’t that interested in a traditional ‘business’ career, and wanted to pursue tech. Fortunately, by picking up skills through self-study, he was able to make the leap to join the GovTech TAP programme.

There, he spent the first two years as a Cybersecurity Specialist doing Threat Hunting under the Government IT Security and Incident Response Team (GITSIR), and has recently joined the Data Science and AI Division as a Quantitative Analyst. This cross-domain exposure has given Shane valuable experience and a unique perspective of how tech can be integrated.

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail - Stack-X x JuniorDevSG

Speaker: Kai Rueber, Chief Executive Officer, Mercurics

Kai is the CEO of Mercurics, a people analytics startup focusing on computational psychology. He previously worked as a recruitment consultant specialising in tech.

After working 10 years in the HR industry, from recruitment to L&D, Kai noticed a gap between companies and its people - employers not knowing enough to bring out the best in their employees - a gap that can be closed using data. So with a background in psychology and a passion for tech recruitment, he and his team at Mercurics plan to help companies, big and small, hire, train and retain better through computational psychology - from getting the right fit to correctly assessing performance.

Web assembly for enterprise devs - SingaporeJS

Speaker: Nemanja Ninkovic
GitHub: @nemwiz

We've all heard about WebAssembly, but most of the times it's mentioned in the context of building video games, image and video compression, VR/AR etc.
However, a lot of us do not work as game developers and we don't encounter these problems in our day to day work. This brings out the question - should I even learn WebAssembly?
In this talk, I want to show some use cases in building business/enterprise applications where WebAssembly can be applied. The talk is practical and we will see how WebAssembly can improve your apps performance by order of magnitude and hopefully convince you why WebAssembly is here to stay.

Presenter's bio
Hi, my name is Nemanja Ninkovic and I'm a software engineer at Zuhlke. Passionate about problem solving and trying to keep up with the latest on the web.
