Agenda for FinTech focused 70th DevClub.lv:

    • Erik Kaju from TransferWise will give a talk “How to build a payment card product”.
      For a long time payment cards used to be the domain of banks. In the last decade, the paradigm has shifted – we see more and more regular enterprises issuing their own cards, be it telcos, grocery store chains, various fintech startups etc.
      But what does it take to build a payment card from scratch? How do cards work? What is the anatomy of card transactions?
      This is a talk focusing on technical and product aspects of the card issuance, based on true story.
      (Language – English)

      Erik is leading the payment card product engineering at TransferWise. Loves all aspects of product engineering – from validating the market fit, establishing partnerships and negotiating deals, to designing technical architecture, building the team and bringing hyper-growth products to live.

    • Dmitry Buzdin from a-heads consulting will give a talk “How payment cards really work”.
      This talk is an introduction about technical aspects of how payment cards function, what technical protocols are involved and what are implementation complexities in a typical payments project. You will learn about concepts like 3DSecure, Authorisation and Clearing, Tokenization and know about novelties in the payment world, which will affect consumers in the nearest future.

    • Jake Sebastian-Jones from Nordigen will give a talk “Data is not enough, you need information”.
      Having a lot of raw data by itself is meaningless – you need to extract information from the data. Banks and other financial institutions have a lot of data but surprisingly little information. This talk will explain how Nordigen uses transaction data to provide multiple tiers of information to financial service providers.
