SwinTech is a quarterly meetup with a simple goal – to bring together techies to learn stuff off each other. No name badges, no sales pitches, just informative presentations from your peers and a chance to meet some of the tech community around you over drinks and a bite to eat. An expert guest speaker will kick off each session to stimulate debate on the hot topics within software development, data, architecture, delivery, QA/testing and UX/UI.
This group is dedicated to the needs and interests of the Local Tech Community so if you would like to see a specific area covered or indeed would like to be a speaker get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
We also have a few topics in mind so why not sign up and we’ll keep you updated so you can pick out the most relevant SwinTech event for you!
Please note, this group isn’t open to sales or recruitment professionals.
SwinTech are delighted to welcome the well renowned Software Engineer Jon Skeet to our Opening event!
Jon Skeet current works at Google, working out of the London office (and his shed). The well renowned Software engineer, author and stackoverflow contributor will be taking us through C# 8.0.
C# 8 was released at the end of September and is now in for production use! The most important, complex and potential disruptive feature in C# 8 is nullable reference types, but there is more than that! The event will provide a great opportunity to find out what the future holds and how to get ahead of the game.
We will also be joined by our very own Richard James (Head of Digital Technology & Engineering) who will give a brief introduction to NBS and his Experience of leading the technology transformation for Nationwide Digital.
