Hard & Soft Skills to Avoid Outages

Our second event of 2014 will be a talk by Pascal-Louis Perez of Square NYC. In just a few years, Square has achieved ubiquitous recognition for mobile card processing grossing over $15B a year in credit card transactions. At the heart of Square's technology are many financial systems which must operate safely, correctly, and sustain rapid growth.

During this tech talk, Pascal will describe the concept of an immune system, go over best practices, share lessons leaned and provide a detailed layering of best practices. This talk will cover non-controversial topics such ad TDD, but from new angles. We'll also cover emerging practices like continuous deployment, and softer areas such as engineering management practices geared towards safety. You'll come out of this session with a fresh perspective on how to build software.

& networking at 6:30, talk at 7.



Pascal-Louis Perez is an engineer in Square's NYC office. Prior to Square, he headed technology at Wealthfront, a fully-automated financial advisor. Over the past 6 years, he has focused on money moving systems and the intricacies of large scale financial systems, as well as being a thought leader in the continuous deployment and lean methodologies.
