JuniorDev Code & Tell - A Night of Technical Talks & Coding

1) Daniele Polencic
Topic: Should you use Kubernetes and Docker in your next project?

Abstract: In the last few years, the industry has experienced a shift towards developing smaller and more focused applications. Smaller services are excellent from a product and development perspective: they are quicker to deploy, easier to iterate on and can handle failure gracefully. But how does that cultural shift impact the infrastructure?
In this talk, you will learn what’s all the hype about containers and Kubernetes and how they impact the development of your microservices.

Daniele is an instructor at Learnk8s, where he teaches Kubernetes and containers to small and large enterprises.


2) Sharon Woo
Topic: "How to get a job as a (junior) data scientist"

Data science has been called “the sexiest job of the 21st century”, and EDB estimates the data analytics industry contributes about S$1b annually to the Singapore economy. But ask 10 people what a data science job is and how to break in, and you're likely to get more than 10 job titles and pathways because the field is rapidly evolving. How do we as junior developers then 1) decide if it's for us, whatever *it* is, 2) plan out some routes to break in, and 3) look out for some green/red flags in the interviewing process?

In this talk, we will explore what "data science" roles can mean, how-to-ing the job interview process, and how to vet roles to determine if they're right for you.

Sharon is currently working in the Singapore Government as a data scientist, and is finishing up a Masters at SMU's School of Information Systems.


3) Choong Yue Lin
Topic: Understanding Ops for Devs

We know there is more to coding, but it is not easy to understand where the drivers come from.
I will give a birds eye view of a product's life cycle.
And demonstrate some processes, such as user story mapping and mapping a user journey, that are useful to know, whether you are in a startup wearing many hats or wish to climb the career ladder in your company.


4) Alex Lakatos
Topic: Breaking into Developer Relations

I sat down and talked with newly minted Developer Advocates I met during the past two years, and a pattern emerged. I’m going to outline the stories and the common points we all shared on our way to becoming Developer Advocates!
