  • Sentry Community Show & Tell Night: Share Your Best Fails!

    Join us in kicking off our new event series with a lightning round of community show-and-tells. The theme: share your fails and what you've learned from them! We invite every developer (yes, you!) to submit an informal 5-minute story showing off your best fails, foibles and fiascos. * Bonus: every show-and-tell speaker will get some super snazzy Sentry swag as a gift! ================================ Submit your show-and-tell here: https://tinyurl.com/sharebugs Deadline to submit: Monday, July 29th (by 11:59pm PDT) We'll select speakers on a rolling basis -- so the sooner you submit, the better! ================================ Here's some inspiration to get those creative gears turning: - AI gone awry Example: "A robotic arm trained to slide a block to a target position on a table achieves the goal by moving the table itself." (via https://tinyurl.com/yaflloq6) - Strange side effects Example: the SFMTA recently had a bug in its transit data feed resulting in Google Maps suggesting hilariously inconvenient travel directions (via https://tinyurl.com/yyln28yy) - That time you (or "not you") took down the production server, and how it led your team to improve their processes (or not) - An intermittent bug, the many hoops you jumped through to replicate it, and how you banished it once and for all - Any of your funniest face-palm moments (and what you learned to never *ever* do again) ======================== Why only 5 minutes? ======================== - To encourage every developer to share their experience in a casual, fun environment. (Everybody has a story to share!) - To explore diverse topics from a diverse group of speakers. (Get a taste of something new in our potluck-style buffet of ideas!) - To invite those new to public speaking to make their voices heard. (We're super low-key and judgement-free!) Submit your show-and-tell here: https://tinyurl.com/sharebugs ============ Agenda: ============ - 6:30pm: Be social! - 6:50pm: Brief announcements / welcome! - 7pm: Our featured show-and-tells - 7:30pm: Networking time (the real reason people go to meetups: to meet cool new people, eat, and drink!) - 9pm: Wrap up ========================= We expect all of our attendees to follow our Code of Conduct: https://sentry.io/_/events/code-of-conduct/
