Software Development - Commercial and Open Source

  • Oct 18, 2012 · 7:30 PM

For October's Geek Night we are going to have two contrasting views of software development, one from the always impressive team at Nokia, and the other from Alaric Snell-Pym who's open-source project Ugarit uses Lisp to create an backup/archival system based around content-addressible storage.

A week in the life of a Java developer at Nokia
Neil Prosser and Danny Smith
Neil is a developer. A Java developer who works at Nokia. Follow our
hero for a week as he writes code, deploys it to production, and find
out what he does when things go wrong.

You can read more about Alaric here and Ugarit here

And of course post talks they'll be a chance for drinks and dialogue

Looking forward to seeing you all

    Great Speakers, great people, great conversations afterwards. Alaric stunned us all with his archival file system written in Lisp and the Nokia guys showed us what it takes to do continuous delivery and the huge mindset shift it creates. Thanks to everyone who came.

    2 great talks. I feel cleverer after Alaric's talk and inspired by Nokia's genuine adoption of an Agile approach (most large companies that "do" Agile don't adopt the mindset)

    Was hoping for a comparison of the two..... I was considering making my software open source, but didnt know what the implications might be of this...
