The community has spoken
After a week of hard voting, 126 participants, gave out, on average, five votes to talks they wanted to see on the upcoming WebCamp Zagreb 2016 conference. Thanks to our voting dashboard, organisers were able to watch live how elections unfolded.
From the beginning, Simon and Zoran exchanged top spot, while Miro was nowhere to be seen. After first day, there was no clear favourite and anything could have happened. Few days in, Miro started tweeting and promoting community vote on social media and crowd slowly started pushing him to the top.
As we approached last two days, first spot was cemented for Miro and Simon was strong second, so battle switched for third. It was clear that differences would be minimal and organisers even started to discuss scenario on how they would handle a tie between Zoran and Tomek. Luckily for them, eight minutes before the deadline, winning vote came in for Zoran.
Here are the results for top talks, in details.
|1||Miro Svrtan - Being a remote developer||55|
|2||Simon Belak - Building dashboards people actually use||46|
|3||Zoran Antolovic - Self-testable API docs - Docs shouldn't lie!||35|
|4||Tomek Wytrębowicz - CSS Grid Layout - the only grid
|5||Marina Jukić - Keeping up with developers||32|
|6||Ville Hellman - Continuously Improving Everything||31|
|7||Zoran Antolovic - Auto updated Test Environments with large databases||28|
|8||Petar Obradović - The Bystander Effect||27|
|9||Alexandra Bowen - Up Your API Game, from REST to Microservices||26|
|10||Antonio Peric-Mazar - A recipe for effective leadership||24|
|10||Alexandra Bowen - Developers as Company Leaders||24|
|10||Miro Svrtan - Jenkins vs Circle vs Travis||24|
|10||Andrei Zvonimir Crnković - Make web apps great again||24|
