  • More Betterer Development

    Paymark

    We've all had apps that were not a shining example of great software design or implementation. Maybe a 3rd party built it for you, maybe you've started a new job and inherited it, or maybe you actually wrote it (we won't judge). Maybe the idea of adding a new feature or even tweaking an existing one not only fills you with dread but you know even a simple change can actually take ages to deliver. You are at the point with that code that you believe it would actually be easier to throw it away and start again. Unfortunately, it's almost always a bad idea to throw it out and start over again, so what can we do to first understand the app, then actually go and make it better? In this talk Kevin Isom (Senior Engineer at Lightbox NZ) will take an application and show ways to understand just what is going on with it, implement steps to ensure that a minimum quality threshold is maintained while allowing us to steadily improve the application. This will cover a range of areas including DevOps, Databases, as well as both FrontEnd and BackEnd code and examining third-party services we can use as well.

  • Battle of the Cities 3: The Showdown

    Paymark

    This is it folks. We can't let Christchurch win three times in a row. This time Auckland will be victorious! Do we have some new recruits to train for the fight? Do we have some veterans to lead the way? Come on down this September and program your own snippet of game logic to out-smart the enemy. Bring your laptop with Node.js installed, and write your own battle-hardened AI, or pair up with someone to make the smartest fighter in the nation. Node.js experience not required, some javascript experience would help. To keep it fair there'll be more details on the night. Whether your a node veteran or just starting out you'll be welcome with some minor prizes, major trash talk, and some beer and pizza from Paymark. As usual there will be friendly people from all skill levels wandering about. So bring along your laptops and your competitive spirit and let's show Christchurch who is boss! See you there!
