Panelists: Gor Karapetyan (Co-founder, Simple Solutions), ROman Daneghyan (Chief Marketing Officer, Renderforest), Tatev Hakobyan (SEO Expert)

The future of search looks like it will have actually less search, as weird as that might sound. Google performed lots of changes in SERP, lots of algorithms and features were added and updated, which make things even more complex. Voice and visual search will ultimately become significant drivers of query volume beside text input. And moreover what should we expect if the Facebook join the search engines competition

Native vs Hybrid app development [Panel]

Keynote: Astghik Petrosyan (Co-founder, meettal)

Panelists: Aram Nazaryan (Tech Lead, PicsArt / Android), Davit Siradeghyan (Sr. Software Engineer, DISQO / iOS), Arman Chatikyan (Sr. Software Engineer, Volo / Android), Gurgen Hovhannisyan (CTO, Digital Pomegranate / Flutter)

These days, mobile apps are a business instrument that acts as another communication and sales channel with clients. Thus, it is necessary to build product that performs very well so that your app may succeed. The native app, a hybrid app, or a web app - what app development approach to choose? This question is rather debatable while each variant has its pros and cons. At the same time, all of these options are progressing. For instance, the introduction of a Progressive Web App or Flutter framework shuffled all cards. This begins to blur the lines, making the right app development decision complicated. Join this panel to learn about the unique aspects of native app development vs hybrid app

14:05 - 14:30 Speaker session

Minas Keshishyan

Computational Photography

Computational photography extends the capabilities of digital cameras by using algorithms instead of optical processes. Some techniques like portrait mode simply mimic features of traditional photography.

On the other hand, HDR can improve dynamic range of photos, night sight can take photos in dark, astrophotography mode can capture stars in the sky. It helped to shot the first photo of a black hole. These things are mostly not possible with traditional methods. Join the session to discuss these techniques in more details
