What we're about

Behind The Buzz Word is a software development kata run by Reed Technology for those who're looking to get hands on with the latest technologies.

The event is designed to allow you to get hands on with the latest technologies that can add value to your stack. By using a kata format, you're able to be introduced to something new and then really get stuck in with it - all you need to do is bring your laptop.

The introduction to the new technologies is provided by the best possible speakers. Remaining language agnostic, so you can interact with the new tech however you develop, we offer a fair and open opportunity for those of all skill sets to experience something new, brush up on skills, or even learn a new approach from those around you.

This isn't designed to be a super serious, heads down event. The flow is loose, collaboration is encouraged, as long as you feel like you've gained new knowledge then we're happy.

Behind The Buzz Word #3: Graph Databases - Welcome to a Relational World

57 Thomas Street Marble Beers

Extremely pleased to announce that Behind The Buzz Word is back for the third installment. This time we're going to be looking at Graph Databases - a topic that I know has appealed to many of you recently. The wonderful Behind The Buzz Word community has really come together to help build this one and Dave Blencowe (Head of Development at Just Loans Group) will be guiding us into the kata. Over the course the night we'll explore what a graph database is and its continuously growing uses in real world applications, then we'll dive right in and build and traverse a graph that represents air traffic routes between airports around the world. Got ideas for your own Graph? Feel free to bring your own datasets.
