For our April meetup we are generously hosted by the Telegraph at their offices in Victoria. Here is the draft schedule (subject to change):
6:30pm - Arrival, Drinks and Food
6:45pm - Introductions
7:00pm - An Engineer's Guide to a Good Night's Sleep - Nicky Wrightson, Principal Engineer at River Island
As organisations look to empower engineers more, and embrace DevOps practices, we have seen the support role change quite a bit too. In this talk, I will be exploring and discussing some of my top approaches and techniques to help reduce the risk of that dreaded 3am call! You will gain some practical insight into how to handle failure in today's more complex distributed microservice systems.
7:50pm - Transpiling: a quick journey from Python to Python - Daniele Esposti Python Software Engineer - Revolut
Transpiling is useful to convert code to either the next or to the previous version of the language, or to refactor medium to huge codebases.
In this talk we'll learn how a transpiler works, how it breaks downs your code, manipulates it and writes it back. We'll also learn how to write a transpiler for Python out of packages publicly available.
8:30pm - Close and pub
Please get in touch with Marc, Matt or Jack if you'd like to speak at this meetup or a future one :)
