About the Event

Join us for our next TopTalks event on Wednesday, February 23, at 10:00 AM EST hosted through the Speakers Network program at Toptal! TopTalks are short TED-style talks in under 10-minutes presented by Toptal experts. Each talk showcases a well-formed idea, followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.

Come learn from fellow Toptalers, and if you’re up for it, give your feedback to help them improve! (Note: Rubrics will be provided at the event to all attendees who are open to sharing feedback. Or just come and learn something new!)


Himanshu Bharadwaj - Finding creative expression in Design Systems How should we create design systems where there is enough scope for creativity and design has a deeper connection with the users. This talk will help designers that are in the early stages of creating design systems plan their design systems such that there is ample scope for creativity, flexibility and delight.

Tahir Shahzad - Is WordPress Right for You? What causes 43% of the web to use WordPress? In this era of data, there are a lot of tools available to bootstrap your web projects and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to pick the best option for your next project. WordPress is not just another blogging tool. Tahir Shahzad has been developing websites, widgets, and tools powered by WordPress that work well every time. Let’s try to understand WordPress and its core features. Do you know when not to use WordPress?

Muhammad Junaid - Asking your users what they need isn’t a bad idea after-all? In product life-cycle it’s a common perception that asking the user what they need isn’t a great idea. The problem doesn’t lie in asking the user but the way and how they are asked and what’s been done with that data. This talk will focus on customer & user’s very crucial involvement in the product development cycle resulting in much better results.
