AI is shaking up the front-end scene, but is it a game-changer or a job-taker? Tired of repetitive tasks and boilerplate code? Picture this: AI handles the boring parts, letting you unleash your creativity on the stuff that really matters. But let’s hit the brakes for a second—could this wizardry actually boot us out of our own jobs? In this eye-opening talk, we’ll dive deep into AI tools that can level up your coding and design skills. We’ll also tackle the burning question everyone’s thinking but not asking: Is AI your future sidekick or the one that’ll swipe your job? Get ready to learn how to make AI your ally in coding, all while keeping your career on solid ground.

AI and Web Development: Hype or Reality
In this talk, we'll take a look at the growing intersection of AI and web development. There's a lot of buzz around the potential uses of AI in writing, understanding, and debugging code, and integrating it into our applications is becoming easier and more affordable. But there are also questions about the future of AI in app development, and whether it will make us more productive or take our jobs.
There's a lot of excitement, skepticism, and concern about the rise of AI in web development. We'll explore the real potential for AI in creating new web development frameworks, and separate fact from fiction.
So if you're interested in the future of web development and the role of AI in it, this talk is for you. Oh, and this talk abstract was written by AI after I gave it several of my unstructured thoughts.

The Rise of the AI Engineer
We are observing a once in a generation “shift right” of applied AI, fueled by the emergent capabilities and open source/API availability of Foundation Models. A wide range of AI tasks that used to take 5 years and a research team to accomplish in 2013, now just require API docs and a spare afternoon in 2023. Emergent capabilities are creating an emerging title: to wield them, we'll have to go beyond the Prompt Engineer and write *software*. Let's explore the wide array of new opportunities in the age of Software 3.0!

Building the AI for Athena Crisis
This talk will dive into how to build an AI for a turn based strategy game from scratch. When I started building Athena Crisis, I had no idea how to build an AI. All the available resources were too complex or confusing, so I just started building it based on how I would play the game. If you would like to learn how to build an AI, check out this talk!

In this workshop, we discuss the merits of serverless architecture and how it can be applied to the AI space. We'll explore options around building serverless RAG applications for a more lambda-esque approach to AI. Next, we'll get hands on and build a sample CRUD app that allows you to store information and query it using an LLM with Workers AI, Vectorize, D1, and Cloudflare Workers.

In this workshop we'll take a tour of applied AI from the perspective of front end developers, zooming in on the emerging best practices when it comes to working with LLMs to build great products. This workshop is based on learnings from working with the OpenAI API from its debut last November to build out a working MVP which became PowerModeAI (A customer facing ideation and slide creation tool).
In the workshop they'll be a mix of presentation and hands on exercises to cover topics including:
- GPT fundamentals- Pitfalls of LLMs- Prompt engineering best practices and techniques- Using the playground effectively- Installing and configuring the OpenAI SDK- Approaches to working with the API and prompt management- Implementing the API to build an AI powered customer facing application- Fine tuning and embeddings- Emerging best practice on LLMOps

Have you wanted to explore AI, but didn't want to learn Python to do it? Tensorflow.js lets you use AI and deep learning in javascript – no python required!
We'll take a look at the different tasks AI can help solve, and how to use Tensorflow.js to solve them. You don't need to know any AI to get started - we'll start with the basics, but we'll still be able to see some neat demos, because Tensorflow.js has a bunch of functionality and pre-built models that you can use on the server or in the browser.
After this workshop, you should be able to set up and run pre-built Tensorflow.js models, or begin to write and train your own models on your own data.
