What we're about

GOTO Nights are free community events brought to you by the GOTO Amsterdam (https://gotoams.nl/) team.

Our mission at GOTO is bring to you the creators and builders of the tools and technologies that you use everyday along with the thought leaders who highlight what’s coming next.

Tech topics we are passionate about include Programming Languages and Frameworks (mostly back-end), Event-Driven Architecture, Microservices, Machine Learning, AI (& society), The Human Factor of Tech and IoT to name a few.

You can take a deep dive on all of these topics and more at our next conference (https://gotoams.nl/), happening Dec. 7-10.

Any questions, comments or topic ideas? Feel free to contact Bianca (bil@trifork.com). You can also let her know if you know of a cool speaker as we are always looking to collaborate on our community events.

See you at our next meetup! In the meantime, check out our over a thousand top-rated talks from our past conferences over on our GOTO Conferences YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb4rtedNVO8eRB-XfTO8kag).

Software Engineering in 100 Years Time

Online event

** PLEASE REGISTER HERE ** https://trifork.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_FrTNpIfhQjWSdEyyW4Dx3Q Join us for the online meetup "Software Engineering in 100 Years Time" with Dave Farley. This GOTO night is focused on continuous delivery and why it may be the best starting point in exploring software engineering in 100 years. Venue/Host: Zoom Costs: Free of charge Speaker: Dave Farley ABOUT THE TALK If we were to more clearly define our discipline what would that look like? If “software engineering” is real “engineering” then wouldn't we expect the principles to be long-lasting, durable and probably unsurprising. What sort of ideas will be as true of “software engineering” in 100 years time as they are today? What are the foundations on which we could begin to build a true engineering discipline for our profession? This talk explores some of those ideas and describes why continuous delivery may be the best starting point that we have for that. AGENDA 18.00: Welcome to this GOTO Night with Dave Farley 18.05: Dave Farley will present his subject of the day 18.30: Live Q&A with Dave Farley 18.55: Thank you for joining us for this GOTO Night ABOUT THE SPEAKER Dave Farley is a thought leader in the field of continuous delivery, DevOps and software development in general. He is co-author of the Jolt-award winning book "Continuous Delivery", one of the authors of "Reactive Manifesto", an independent software developer and consultant, and founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd. Dave has been having fun with computers for over 30 years has worked on most types of software, from firmware, through tinkering with operating systems and device drivers, to writing games and commercial applications of all shapes and sizes. He started working in large scale distributed systems more than 25 years ago, doing research into the development of loose-coupled, message-based systems — a forerunner of microservice architectures. He was also an early adopter of agile development techniques, employing iterative development, continuous integration and significant levels of automated testing on commercial projects from the early 1990s.

Why Your Private Cloud is Probably a Bad Idea

Online event

** PLEASE REGISTER HERE ** https://trifork.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fI42eYizRJC-39zOOB6xqg Join us for the online meetup "Why Your Private Cloud is Probably a Bad Idea" with Sam Newman. This GOTO Night will focus on the use of public cloud and what makes it work (or not). Venue/Host: Zoom Costs: Free of charge Speaker: Sam Newman ABOUT THE TALK The growth of the public cloud market is obvious to everyone. But what’s less well known is that enterprises are still growing the infrastructure and services they run for themselves. A host of reasons are given for why companies can't use public cloud solutions, but do these reasons stack up? This talk analyses the concerns around the use of public cloud, including concerns about vendor lock-in. I'll also look at what makes cloud work (or not), we'll see why private clouds often fail to deliver. AGENDA 5:00pm – Welcome to this GOTO Night with Sam Newman 5:05pm – Sam Newman will present his subject of the day 5:30pm – Live Q&A with Sam Newman 5:55pm – Thank you for joining us for this GOTO Night ABOUT THE SPEAKER Sam Newman is an independent consultant specializing in helping people ship software fast. Sam has worked extensively with the cloud, continuous delivery and microservices and is especially preoccupied with understanding how to more easily deploy working software into production. For the last few years, he’s focused on microservice architectures. He has worked with a variety of companies around the world, often with one foot in the developer world and another in the IT operations space.
