After Devoxx BE newcomer Hubert Sablonnière gave one of the top rated sessions (Make CSS Fun Again with Flexbox!), we talked to Dan Allen and himself about their partnership.

Standing out as a speaker

After 4 days “the talks start to look the same” – how do you do something different to make your talk stand out? Playing Lemmings during a JWT talk, anyone?

Custom tools to control the flow
