What we're about

We love all things developer.

We are a technology & vendor-neutral group (so we do not favour anyone or anything) which lets us share and learn on WIDE variety of topics from software development methodologies to patterns, best practices, various language paradigms and xkcd humour etc.

It's great to meet local developers and see what they are doing! From beginner to expert, all are welcome.

We meet monthly to learn about things related to software development. Our regular meetings happen in Joburg, Pretoria and Cape Town every month!

We also run ad hoc special events.

Application modernisation Is it time? Has making changes become too expensive, time-consuming, and exhausting? You know what I'm taking about! That monolith that you do not want to change because a simple change inevitably breaks something somewhere else. In this fairly opinionated session, I am going to talk through the options of breaking up large applications and adopting modern cloud-based platforms and technologies. We will discuss breaking up the application into manageable chucks with a cloud native view. I'll be speaking through some processes, procedures and practices that should give you an understanding of what is possible, and maybe give you the insight and guts to breathe some new life into that big app in the corner. Facilitator: Niel Zeeman Being an avid developer for over a decade I've seen the bad and the good and would like to take this experience and translate it into guidance for others. Currently my mission is to get development teams using best practice ALM applications such as Team Foundation Server / Azure DevOps and Visual Studio to its full extent in the production of high quality software, through consulting, mentoring and training.
