We are all technologists. But what to do to set ourselves apart and up our game? The talks we prepared will give you something to think about

Abraham Marin-Perez Breaking Down Your Build: Architectural Patterns For A More Efficient Pipeline

Structuring your codebase without the build pipeline in mind may lead to a situation where your changes force rebuilding things that don’t really need to be rebuilt. In this talk I’ll go through different scenarios that create this effect, showing ways in which the situation can be fixed.

Bio: Abraham Marin-Perez is a Java programmer and enthusiastic agilist. Abraham's main focus is finding out what maximises a team's capacity to deliver in the long term, looking at the technical aspects (like fully automated CI/CD) to the psychological ones (like matching personality types), and then everything in between.

Dr Oliver ShawTest Driven Development, the most misused term in software development?

In this talk Oliver describes what "Doing TDD" is and, importantly, what it isn't. He will make the ethos of TDD very clear and show you how to do TDD via a live coding demo. He touches on mocking, the testing pyramid and finishes by doing a fanaticism check with the audience.

Bio: Oliver is an associate with Equal Experts. Currently assisting the public sector. Oliver has an interest in creating pragmatic, quality software and getting that into live as soon as possible using DevOps techniques. Specific tech interests include Scala, Docker, CI/CD. Co-Organiser of DevOps North East.

As always, pizza and drinks will be provided
