Speakers

Trish Khoo

Awesome developers test their code

Trish Khoo, former engineering manager at Google, tells you why testing your code is critical to becoming a senior developer.

Jaime Febres - LINQ 101

LINQ (Language-Integrated Query) changed forever the way in which .Net developers interacted with data.
It allowed expressiveness in a traditionally procedural way of projecting, aggregating and filtering data.
During this presentation, we will see how LINQ makes all of this possible and how you can take advantage of it.

Ben Hockley

The job market can be really daunting when you’re trying to find your first job in the industry. You can keep sending off applications without ever hearing back from employers. [As a junior, you also don’t have experience in X language]. I know because I did the same until I got my current job.

I am a Junior Software Engineer at MAXART. We build Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications for training and educating people. I’m here to share my story with you about how I got my job. The secret to my success is something you may not expect - it’s networking!
