Part 2: Succes by design – How to innovate with impact
The key to successful digital transformation is a focus on creating an impactful user experience. In this keynote, we will look at the role of design in today’s world and how it helps to define and deliver meaningful impact when innovating.
Part 3: Running 30-year-old code in the cloud
Containerization has been common practice in the Linux world for years, but lately, developers on the Microsoft stack have jumped on the Docker bandwagon too. That is all nice and dandy for .NET Core applications that are easily deployable in Docker on Linux, but what if you have a 30-year-old maritime simulator that has to be cloudified and run as a Software as a Service offering on-demand? In this presentation, we’ll share the journey of our team that led us from hope to desperation to glory in turning on-premise simulators into a full-blown cloud-native service, with some ancient pieces still in there. It surely can be done!
Presenters: Roy Cornelissen, lead consultant at Xpirit & Sander Aernouts, lead consultant at Xpirit

Remote Engineering at Kongsberg
With several international customers, Kongsberg being one of them, Xpirit has been fully equipped to work remotely for years. Our consultants are hired because of the expert knowledge they share with clients. Nowadays, this is all done remotely.
For Kongsberg, remote engineering is nothing new. With teams in Norway, the Netherlands, India, and Russia, they have worked like this for years. However, the technologies and tools available to make remote working (even) more efficient have changed. Remote engineering is becoming the new normal. Partly because of Corona, many people work from home now. Finding ways to make the most out of remote work is becoming increasingly important.
