Software on the Rocks blends two disciplines renowned for their mastery and craftsmanship: great software and fine drinks. Inspired by the open spaces format, we'll explore the patterns and practices that make great software great... all whilst enjoying an ale, Scotch, or anything else the pub has to offer.
While this obviously covers a broad range of topics, we'll theme some events around simplicity in design and process, effective software teams, agile/lean mindsets, usability, transitioning to continuous delivery / DevOps, etc. Basically, all the parts of development that support and lay the groundwork for great software. All types of software professionals are welcome and encouraged -- part of the experience will be learning and sharing perspectives from folks outside your immediate area of expertise.
