How well do you know your options?

At DevTank this time round we're giving you a hefty helping of options to satisfy your decision making needs. Many thanks to our sponsors, Forward ( and Ginicam (, for providing the beer and pizza!

Liz Keogh ( - Real Options

We are all wired to avoid uncertainty. Unfortunately this causes us to make premature commitments all the time. In this talk, we look at how those commitments affect us, and how we can change the mindset we use for making decisions - discovering uncertainty earlier and paying to keep our options open, so that we can focus on when to make decisions, rather than what decision to make.

Steve Robinson - Stock Options

Whilst perusing the job market you may have come across descriptions like:

"Highly competitive salary plus generous stock options with uncapped potential."

The job looks great, its offering market salary plus stock options! But what does "stock options" actually mean? Steve Robinson, Corporate Controller at ( will explain all.

Also, are you looking for a job?

Our friends at Silicon Milkroundabout have asked us to remind you that their event is next weekend 26/27th May and has 800+ exciting job opportunities at 100+ UK's top startups for developers and engineers.
