Fun with Autonomous AI agents
AutoGPT, AgentGPT, GodMode... there are a bunch of apps spinning up that are goal-oriented and use GPT under the hood to recursively task itself and make progress towards a goal. This article is a great summary of current options: https://mashable.com/article/autogpt-ai-agents-how-to-get-access This talk will explore the different projects (both self-hosted OSS as well as hosted SaaS) for using autonomous AI agents as personal assistants. We'll look at the capabilities of each tool and run an example challenge on each. By the end of the talk you'll have some familiarity with the available tools, understanding of their capabilities and know when to use which. * I can lead this talk.

Using the “Inversion of Control” design pattern to push decision making to the edges
This is not so much a Nocode-specific technique but a more generalized mental model that’s very useful in entrepreneurship. This blog post I did in 2005 gives a good example of this concept applied to building package-routing applications: https://scrollinondubs.com/2005/08/23/aha-moment-selfish-objects-as-a-means-for-mitigating-complexity-in-large-systems/ I can lead this talk and show other examples of how I apply this design philosophy in Problemattic.app
Building a bounty system and trading platform in Bubble
I've developed an entire trading platform for fungible & non-fungible assets that now underpins all collaboration for Problemattic. This uses their native datastore and backend workflows for settlement. It leverages the pubsub message bus I developed as well to notify all stakeholders of proposed trades and requires approval from counterparties before execution. I can lead this talk.
Creating a pubsub message feed with Bubble to give your users customized notifications on their terms
This is the system I created from scratch for our users of Problemattic and can be seen here: https://problemattic.app/admin-profile Pubsub is publish/subscription and is the foundational architecture of follow systems like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. This enables your users to subscribe granularly to various events and sub-events and get notifications on their terms. I can lead this talk.
Improve your user activation with smart, visual onboarding prompts

Learning Docker as the ultimate unlock for using OSS
Open source server software gives you a whole new world of possibilities for pre-packaged apps that can extend your toolset. Docker is the containerization technology that lets you take advantage of this without knowing code (well a little bit of code). Learn how to launch your first app in Docker via Digital Ocean. * I can lead this talk

Visual data extraction tools that allow you to turn any website into an API
This data scraping tool has an interesting capability that makes it so it can be invoked via API call and can be used to treat a website like a database you can query to power your app. Here's one tool that enables this: https://automatio.co/
