        • Kirill Linnik from MOVE Guides/DevClub Estonia will give a talk „GDPR and kittens“
          Despite the new law affects all people, the most influence it has on us – IT crowd. Interestingly, if you check presentations regarding GDPR, they are mainly produced by lawyers and other people, who will not tell you what it means in practice. The reason is simple: GDPR is an 88-pages-long document and it is written in a language, not all IT people can understand. Therefore, DevClub does it for you. This is our translation of what GDPR means to IT, how it affects our development, business in general and how kittens are connected to all of that.
