What we're about

We’re thrilled to be bringing our ExpertTalks events to the South West! These sessions are an opportunity for the software community to come together to share and learn from real-world experiences (and have a good old-fashioned chinwag) .

We cover any and all elements of software development – from the technology and processes used, to the proven techniques that help keep deliveries on track.

Food and drink is on Equal Experts – hope you can join us. To learn more about what we do and how we work, pay us a visit at equalexperts.com.

Dave Farley: Lessons From The Cyberpunk 2077 Release

Online event

At the end of last year I released a video on my Software Engineering YouTube channel called “Bad Software Engineering Killed the Cyberpunk 2077 Release.” It was ridiculously successful, so far over 445k views. In this talk, I reflect on the failures in Software Engineering exemplified in the CyberPunk 2077 release, and on the comments section of my YouTube video which were also fascinating. The most common negative comments were best paraphrased by, “this guy blames the developers, but it was the evil management.” I think that this demonstrates a deep disconnect in our organisations and in what “engineering” for software means. In this talk, we will also explore how we should think about engineering in software terms, and why it matters SPEAKER: DAVE FARLEY Dave is the founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd.
