We make IT work

Solving complex challenges requires innovation and courage. We share our expert knowledge at conferences and meet-ups.

IT Security

API hacking using the example of REST technology

We refer to the manipulation of application interfaces as API hacking. This danger increases to the extent that new API technologies come onto the market. In this talk, Jens uses the example of REST to show how the danger can be effectively contained.

Speaker: Jens Becker

IT Security

IT Security for SMEs: Basics + Strategy

Micromata is participating in this series of events organized by the Competence Center for Digitalization in Rural Areas (KDLR). The two IT security experts Jens Becker and Sergej Michel provide tips on the topics of password security, clean desk policy and handling personal data, among others.

Speaker: Jens Becker, Sergej Michel

IT Security

Social engineering or the human risk factor

Social engineering is the term used to describe the attempt to exploit the greatest security vulnerability of all – people. To this end, people are often spied on and manipulated with the help of modern communication media in order to exploit them for criminal purposes without their knowledge. But we can protect ourselves.

Speaker: Joshua Wollenweber, Patrick Ditzel, Sergej Michel

Software development

Individual or standard software? A comparison

Anyone who invests in new software deserves the best of all solutions. After all, it is an investment in the future viability of the company. All the more important that it fits the business case perfectly. But which is better suited: Standard or individual software? We answer.

Speaker: Isabelle Lüdenbach, Gero Auhagen, Dr. Andreas Witsch

Cloud Engineering

Legacy goes Cloud. How the migration succeeds

Everyone is talking about the cloud. Whether it’s AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud – we’re already spoilt for choice when it comes to the provider. So how do we decide which technology mix is right for us? Especially when it comes to migrating historically grown legacy applications? Our cloud experts know the answer.

Speaker: Christian Claus, Sebastian Hardt, Dr. Andreas Witsch

Cloud Engineering

Quickstart Guide for Cloud Migrations

Legacy in the cloud! If you want to continue to operate historically grown software in a resource-efficient way in the future, you can’t avoid the cloud. The presentation by Dr. Andreas Witsch shows how to move legacy software to the cloud – and how to do so in such a way that it also benefits sustainably from the advantages of the cloud after migration.

Speaker: Dr. Andreas Witsch


Spielerische Sicherheit

Security is a big topic. On the one hand, it is individual and requires deep knowledge of the systems and the business processes. On the other hand, it is so complex that expert knowledge in the field of security is necessary. Matthias Altmann and Claudius Link show how to transfer IT security knowledge into practice in a playful way.


Speaker: Matthias Altmann (Micromata) und Claudius Link

Software Development

How to turn your monolith into a kick-ass cloud solution

Social Engineering is the term we use to describe the attempt to exploit the greatest security vulnerability of all – us humans. The gateways for this type of criminal manipulation range from the front door to the telephone to the e-mail inbox. A workshop about phishing & co. and how we can protect ourselves.

Speaker: Sebastian Hardt

Software Development

Tidy at last: Clean Code increases software quality

Like in a kitchen with many cooks, developers work on a common code base day after day, sometimes for years. If you don’t have your source code under control, you create technical debt. We can effectively counteract this danger with Clean Code.

Speaker: Arkadius Roczniewski

Software Development

Workshop zum Digitaltag 2021: Vorsicht, giftige Post!

Social engineering is the term we use to describe the attempt to exploit the greatest security vulnerability of all – us humans. The gateways for this type of criminal manipulation range from the front door to the telephone to the e-mail inbox. A workshop about phishing & co. and how we can protect ourselves.

Speaker: Matthias Altmann

Software Development

Domain Driven Design - so that your code speaks plain language

DDD not only helps to avoid technical misunderstandings between the stakeholders involved in a project, but also establishes clarity and unambiguity about the functional and technical parameters in the specification in particular – and thus creates the prerequisite for high code quality.

Speaker: Daniel Ludwig


Larry and Bill: Big Data or Big Pile of Poo?

In times of Big Data and NoSQL, relational databases seem to be going out of fashion. This presentation will show that this is very much not the case. If we know how to use them properly, they can do much more than we give them credit for today – and they also scale well in the face of growing data volumes.

Speaker: Steve Ulrich

IT Security

Workshop Security Games

IT security is often understood as a dry, abstract topic that is handled by a few experts who are just as dry. But that’s not true, and it doesn’t work that way. On the contrary, you need as many perspectives from as many stakeholders as possible to achieve a high level of security. Security games make this possible.

Speaker: Matthias Altmann (Micromata) and Claudius Link

Project Management

Fall - get up - straighten your crown - and do better in the future

In order to successfully lead complex projects to the finish line, we need not only professional project management, but also a constructive and motivating error culture. This expert lecture sheds light on its ingredients and provides a lot of practical experience.

Speaker: Petra Krug

Project Management

Inform - motivate - integrate: Mobile app for all employees

Our everyday working lives are becoming increasingly mobile. Business trips, home offices, decentralized locations. All of this presents us with completely new challenges when it comes to employee communication. In this webinar, we’ll show how digital tools can be used to meet these new dynamics and at the same time promote cohesion, identification and a shared culture within a company.

Speaker: Petra Krug, Philipp Mandler, Duo Andreas Qiu

Software Engineering Build Tool for Modular Java Projects“ is a lightweight build tool for creating modular Java projects based on jshell/java. It supports a „zero install“ execution mode, a simple properties file to customize the default settings and an API to create custom projects etc.

Speaker: Christian Stein


Database tuning for software developers

The disks are spinning, the CPU is glowing – and still the database queries are too slow? Don’t worry, you don’t have to change the database system or upgrade with new hardware! Instead, targeted tuning in a few, but the right places is enough.

Speaker: Steve Ulrich

Software Engineering

JUnit 5 & Project Loom

This talk not only recounts the adventures of connecting the JUnit testing interface Jupiter to the new efficient threads called fibers, but also introduces Java’s Loom project, which aims to make it easier to write, debug, and maintain concurrent applications.

  • JavaLand 2020 (cancelled)

Speaker: Christian Stein

User Experience Design UX

The future has to be invented

The future is not an act of God, but can be consciously shaped. So let’s start setting the course so that we travel to a future that corresponds to our wishes. This lecture makes us want to do so.

Speaker: Julian Mengel

IT Security

LFI/RFI - Remote Code Execution made easy

Local/Remote File Inclusion has been around for a very long time – but is still highly dangerous. This talk is about explaining LFI/RFI attacks and how to protect against them.

Speaker: Matthias Altmann

Project Management

What time is it, anyway? A practical look at the team clock

We’ve all heard of the team clock. This presentation highlights the different phases of team building Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing and introduces helpful methods and tools to master them.

Speaker: Stephan Doerfel, Simon Krackrügge

We live know-how transfer

Because we believe that shared knowledge has a double effect. Let’s shape digitization together in a lively dialog!
