    August 18th, 18:30-20:30

    Livestream on Panter's YouTube Channe


    Pantalks Speaker:

    Marco Wettstein & Claudio Romano

    Senior Software Engineers at Panter AG  

    Topic (tech):

    How we created a web stack

    bottom-up using just open source

    Marco and Claudio love react, they love typescript, and they adore graphql.

    Finding ways of combining these tools is not hard, quite the opposite: There are so many libraries and options to choose from - it's actually harder to settle on the best possible solution. JS Fatigue is still a thing in 2020.

    For Marco, Claudio, and their teammates at panter, it’s even a bigger challenge: They all work on many projects while trying to stay flexible team members. It's therefore crucial to them that they find their way in every project fast, so they have to set certain standards.

    On the other hand, IT and in particular web development is never “done”. You have to be ready for new technologies and improvements so that you can adapt to them if you need to. On this never-ending journey to find the “perfect stack”

    Marco and Claudio came up with something that solves most of their pain-points and gives them the power and flexibility to what they need.

    At their pantalk, they'll share what they came up with.

    Spoiler alert: it involves react, next.js, graphql-nexus and prisma

    What are the Pantalks AI mornings about?

    Nowadays you have numerous options to get informed about Artificial Intelligence (AI) achievements and progresses.


    Actually, it can even be overwhelming, as everyone claims to have embraced AI and is “fully taking advantage” of this amazing new way of sorting through data. It may even make you feel a tech slacker or that you are missing the the-next-great-thing boat.


    Beyond buzzwords!

    Pantalks AI mornings present applied machine learning use cases that serve real business needs and leaves aside over-inflated claims.

    Attend these short (45 min) morning sessions prior to starting your work day and get a rapid understanding of applied AI business cases and their integration implications.

    Are the Pantalks AI mornings for me?

    Traditionally Pantalks are visited by decision-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, executives, thinkers, and doers to explore innovative technologies as well as their societal impacts. It’s also an Impact Hub Community event! Get your seat. We'd love to see you there.


    Format (venue, dates)

    Colab @ Impact Hub Zürich, monthly, every last Tuesday, not during summer / winter holidays


    - Tue 25.02.2020: Michael Born, CEO of PXL Vision AG

    - More dates will follow soon


    Time: 8.00 - 8.45: coffee & gipfeli, introduction, presentation, Q&A, open discussion


    Each event will be promoted and organized through our Meetup group (+2400 members!).

  • Our Story

    Pantalks, initiated by Panter employees in 2010, began as a small community meetup where individuals looking to exchange knowledge, tech and non-tech, could connect and share their insights. Today, with +2700 meetup members and more than 200+ Pantalks hosted, the community has grown into a meaningful network. Once a month we host an intriguing talk with fresh from the field insights and engaging discussion over snacks and drinks— we'd love you to join us!
