This event is a public presentation of our team's experience for the last couple of years in Decoupled Development, Design & Leadership.

We're happy to speak about the following topics:

1. A Designer and 4 Developers Walk Into a Bar – My Role as a Designer in an Agile Dev Team. Presented by Luke Shahinian (Head of Design).

The experience of coming from a freelance design background and integrating into a larger development team has been both challenging and enlightening. I will talk about how I’ve been able to bring value to a team that did not have an in-house designer on staff before my arrival, and how the two most important things I do occur before I design anything and after all designs have been approved by the client.

2. Agile Leadership. Presented by Morten Grantzau (Director of Operations) & Patri Garrido (Agile Growth Lead)

A talk about Leading in the World of Agile. When we shift from a line organisation to a lean agile organisation how do we act as leaders and what are our responsibilities? What happens to our “managers” and who has the authority and who has the accountability?

3. Decoupled software - When to do it and when not. Presented by Ev Maslovskiy (CTO) & Sergey Korzh (Senior developer)

2 years ago our company shifted to the Decoupled Development approach. In this session we will present our retrospective on several years of enterprise projects development based on headless Drupal 8 and React.js. Problems & solutions, reasons to change, lessons learnt.

4. Testing of decoupled websites. Presented by Kate Marshallkina (Team lead)

Decoupling often introduces extra layers of complexity when it comes to testing and deployments. At SystemSeed, our DevOps stack includes Docker, Circle CI, Codeception, Jest, Nock, Gemini, and more. In this session, we will overview different approaches to automated testing and how they can be applied to decoupled architectures.
