1a Biblical Ethics and Morality in IT Decision Making
In the past, have you ever bought pirated software or cheated Microsoft licensing restrictions and usage, while on the field? In your office, are you on top of your software licensing, EULAs, data protection and other requirements relating to your digital data? Have you taken into account the corporate reputation or ethics of your secular IT software, hardware or service provider, before using their offerings?

When it comes down to the use of cheap and cheerful IT products, highly convenient solutions, or the unavoidable secular giants of the IT Cloud world, we seem to have distanced ourselves from our Biblical ethics and morality. The unpleasant thought of spending more money, more time or more resources to come up with an alternative solution, dulls the reality that many secular IT corporations, are using practices that are in direct conflict with our Biblical worldview. It's not a secret that Western corporate greed for profit and control is a cancer to our society, leading to scandals in the news when they are exposed, and involving many of our IT providers.

In this workshop, we will look at what the Bible and related readings have to say, in order to help us choose an ethical and moral approach to our decision-making process. We will also reflect on the challenges to implementing an uncompromising biblical position when dealing with secular IT providers.

2b Hands-On: Building a Mini Interactive Web App with React
We will experiment with some of the core features of React JS, but previous programming experience will not be necessary. React is the fastest growing framework and nowadays the most asked for skill for web app developers. Although, in fact, it is not a framework, but rather a library of reusable components. All components, small or big, are reusable, even across different projects. The functional JavaScript model and the one-way data flow improves the readability of all components and makes it easier to design re-usability.

3b Tactical vs Strategic
As a leader, we have a lot of things wanting our attention. Being able to prioritize our time appropriately is a key skill. Understanding what action items are tactical vs strategic (and even what is visionary) play a role in not only making sure we're doing what we should be doing but also helps those we lead in focusing on what they are to be doing.

3c Programmatic Design Patterns
Design Patterns are well-defined and well-studied relationships between classes, interfaces, and objects. They have been proven to help developers design and implement more robust software -- software that adapts gracefully to changing requirements and environments. In this talk, I will introduce some of the most common and useful design patterns, with examples. I will also speak about the underlying Design Principles that motivate the creation and use of patterns.

4c. Using OpenPetra for Your Small Charity
OpenPetra is an administration tool for charities, and the workshop will show how it helps you to manage your contacts' addresses, lists for newsletters, and the donations.

In the past year, OpenPetra has been partly rewritten to now run in the web browser and can be used from everywhere. It is open source and can be hosted by yourself, or you can use the service at https://www.openpetra.com.

This workshop shows how you can manage your addresses, and how you can import your bank statements and match regular and new donations to the donors so that you can print an annual receipt for the donors which they can give to their tax office.

We currently don't target big organisations, but the small charity or church bookkeeper that manages the addresses and finances in his/her spare time.

4a Cybersecurity & Nationals
Working with nationals out on the field and within their countries is a requirement for most ministries. As expats, we usually do a good job of taking care of our own ministry’s internal digital security. But what about when we work with nationals? Are there differences? Do we need to have them at the same standard as our own ministry’s levels? This workshop will look into what considerations and protocols we should be looking at when working with nationals.

Your organisation is already using an older version of Dynamics NAV, and you want to know where Dynamics NAV is going? Or are you considering Dynamics NAV as a future alternative to your existing ERP System?

We will present the possibilities you have as developer with coding in AL and developing extensions for Dynamics NAV. We will show the development with Visual Code, and managing your code in Git, show situations where you still have to make changes in C/AL, how to manage your own data model for your extensions, and how to develop assistants.

6c Erasing Worry from Our Lives
We all worry from time to time. We may worry about:
  • finances
  • a job
  • the health of parents or children
  • failing to make much impact for God in the role that He has given us on earth
  • our relationship with God, as we pray and God seems unwilling, or unable, to answer and provide
In this workshop, we will explore Christ's words in Matthew 6:34 as the means to eliminate worry from our lives. In the midst of this workshop, we will take time to commit our worries to the Lord, laying our requests before our Father in heaven.
