What we're about

There is still some time before the next GOTO Berlin conference takes place. To give you the GOTO feeling until then, we schedule a wide range of free GOTO Nights in the months before.

GOTO Nights are designed for people who want to stay up to date with the latest tools, technologies, processes and practices in the software industry.

GOTO Nights are free evening events driven by involvement from both speakers and participants. Come along to learn something new and network with your peers! We will provide you with a first class speaker (or two) - all you have to do is: sign up and show up ;)

GOTO Nights provide you with an opportunity to:

• Hear excellent speakers
• Learn about the latest trends
• Reach beyond your current language, platform, or practices
• Increase your technical depth and breadth
• Expand your professional network
• Connect with the global software community
• Share your experience and expertise with others

We cover a vast range of topics on our GOTO Nights. If you have a topic you are keen to learn more about, please let us know and we'll try to organize a talk.

GOTO Night: Exploring Modern Web Development. Ember, GraphQL and Testing.

Doors opening 18:30 Start 19:00 Cost free of charge Snacks & refreshments included Speaker: Rami Rihawi, Rocky Neurock & Chad Carbert GOTO Night: Exploring Modern Web Development. Ember, GraphQL and Testing. How We Sped up Our Frontend Acceptance Tests by 42% When it comes to testing, it’s always about releasing faster without compromising quality. In this light talk, we'll go over the benefits of having a fast and well-optimised test suite. We’ll also discuss some techniques and ideas that helped us improve the speed of our frontend acceptance tests. In addition to that, we'll showcase how we measure test performance and run tests in parallel. Rami Rihawi is a 24 years old Software Developer at Kloeckner.i. He's from Aleppo, Syria and arrived to Germany 3 years ago. He got introduced to web development through REDI (a school that teaches refugees how to code) where he learned the basics of Javascript and ruby. Now he's really passionate and excited about Elixir and functional programming in general. In his spare time, he reads up on autonomous drones, Blockchain and video games. No Graph Theory Required: Ember and GraphQL in Practice A large percentage of Ember developers work on data-intensive applications. Ember’s built-in ORM and the JSON:API spec give us really powerful tools for interacting with that data but sometimes these tools still aren’t flexible enough. In this talk we’ll explore why, and how, we transitioned to GraphQL with Ember, along with some tips and techniques you may want to try out in your own projects. Rocky and Chad are Senior Frontend Developers at kloeckner.i in Berlin. They are both ex-Portlanders who spent years being involved in the Portland Ember community, attending EmberConf and participating in Ember meet ups. Now they enjoy being involved in all things Ember in Europe.
