• "Transformative Impact: Sustained Change through Volunteering in Bangladesh"

    SESSION ONE :"Transformative Impact: Sustained Change through Volunteering" In March 2019 an EE team worked on a month long engagement with a hard deadline and under extreme conditions. We delivered working software. We researched our users using surveys, interviews and observations with video recordings. We mapped out our user's experience and service touch-points. This was both a Discovery and a narrowly focused Delivery. It was exhausting and one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever had the privilege of being part of. This is a talk about how EE used technology to help deliver sustained change and have transformative impact on the lives of marginalised families. Our users were small-hold farmers and we worked in the rural communities of the Rangpur division of Bangladesh. SPEAKER : Matt McGuire - Technology Consultant, Advisor, Mentor, CTO, Explorer and EE Engagement Manager ** SESSION TWO: "Coding for Good" The software for the project was developed in Manchester. This is the story of how we went from inception to production in four weeks and the challenges I faced of developing software half the world away from home SPEAKER: Patrick Birchall - DevOps and Operability Consultant, Equal Experts. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Food and drink will be provided - we look forward to seeing you there! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
