What we're about

Thoughtworks is a global technology consultancy that integrates strategy, design and software engineering - and a community of passionate, purpose-led individuals. We have one mission: We think disruptively to deliver technology to address our clients' toughest challenges, all while seeking to revolutionize the IT industry and create positive social change.

We are intentional about making technology a better place for all. Thoughtworkers are encouraged to stand up, speak up, and advocate for who and what they believe in. We host events and talks tackling intersectionality, discrimination and bias in tech because we believe conversations create understanding and diversity in organizations and thinking.

Here you are free to learn and to share on any platform. Free to feel safe in your own skin. Free to follow your latest curiosity to an unknown place. Free to challenge ideas, assumptions, and solutions - no matter who they belong to (respectfully). Free to experiment and recommend the right tech without bias. Free to change career paths. Free to make technology a better place for all.

We like to share our knowledge and would like to invite you to become part of this meetup group to stay up to date with our latest events - you don't have to be a Thoughtworker to join this community :)

Our venue in Berlin is a barrier free non-smoking area. The toilets are wheelchair accessible.

tl;dr: Be excellent to each other

A primary goal of Thoughtworks’ events is to be inclusive to a diverse group of people from all walks of life. Therefore, we are dedicated to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, appearance, disability, marital status, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).

----------

Wir wollen die Technologiebranche zu einem besseren Ort für alle machen. Wir ermutigen ThoughtworkerInnen, aufzustehen, sich frei zu äußern und dafür einzutreten, an wen und an was sie glauben. Wir veranstalten Events und Vorträge zu Themen wie z.B. Diskriminierung oder Vorurteile in der Technologiebranche, weil wir glauben, dass Konversation Verständnis und Vielfalt schafft.

Als ThoughtworkerIn hast du die Freiheit, auf allen möglichen Wegen und Plattformen zu lernen und das Gelernte mit anderen zu teilen. Du bist frei, du selbst zu sein. Frei, den Themen, die dich begeistern, zu folgen und unbekannte Bereiche oder Tech Stacks zu erkunden. Frei, Ideen, Annahmen und Lösungen in Frage zu stellen – egal zu wem sie gehören. Frei, zu experimentieren. Frei, deinen Weg zu ändern. Frei, die Welt durch Technologie zu einem besseren Ort zu machen.

Wir konzentrieren uns auf die Weiterentwicklung der ganzen Software-Branche. Und wir finden, Wissen sollte man teilen.

Werde Teil unserer Meetup Gruppe und bleibe auf dem Laufenden über unsere aktuelle Events - du musst kein ThoughtworkerIn sein, um Teil dieser Gemeinschaft zu sein :)

Unser Veranstaltungsort in Berlin ist eine barrierefreie Nichtraucherzone. Die Toiletten sind mit Rollstühlen zugänglich

Infrastructure WebConf Europe Vol. 6

Link visible for attendees

***Sign up here***

At Thoughtworks, we believe in you-build-it-you-run-it. Our software developers and infrastructure specialists are responsible for the knowledge, ideas, and hands-on implementation skills needed to deliver and run software services. They help our clients adopt DevOps approaches, break out of rigid, traditional ways of working and move to a more customer-focused and agile approach.

Our cross-functional teams contain developers, infrastructure specialists and product experts. They build developer experience platforms, CI/CD systems, infrastructure automation using practices like infrastructure-as-code and observability capabilities.

Join us on October 13 where subject matter experts will explore best practices and thought-provoking learnings on application-driven infrastructure engineering, corporate security and platform building in our sixth edition of Infra WebConf Europe.

Welcome

Head in the Clouds
Jonathan Carrillo
We're used to considering technical and financial concerns when selecting cloud technologies. How fast is it? How much is it? Does it support my programming language? We are less used to consider the human side. Platforms are springing up inside technology organisations across the world, in a large part motivated by simplifying the workload of product developers. But we also need to care about the strain we are placing on infrastructure and platform professionals, who are being confronted with an explosion of complexity as more and more tools are released in this space. In this talk, Jonathan and María will discuss the role that cognitive load plays in choosing and using cloud technologies.

10:55 CEST
Using simulations to tackle cyberattacks
Rushil Gala-Shah
Having secure infrastructure has always been an important part of building platforms. With cyberattacks becoming more and more frequent, more companies are ensuring that there is a focus placed on cybersecurity. Last year, we embarked on an approach that simulated multiple scenarios using two teams: a blue team and a red team. The blue team played the role of an organisation that was building a few services and the underlying infrastructure whilst the red team played the role of the attackers attempting to capture the flags planted by the blue team. There were a lot of interesting discoveries along the way and Rushil will share the journey as well as some of the learnings from this approach.

“Click-Click” Data Product
Lou Franklin and Clemence Burnichon
One of the central principles of data mesh is an ability to self-serve data infrastructure in order to support the federation and ownership of data products. From the inception of the data mesh project at ITV our aspiration has been to provide any users with an ability to quickly and easily create and deploy data products, without the need for any platform technical knowledge. Join us in this talk to discuss what it has meant to put self-service at the heart of ITVs data mesh platform implementation and how this journey has and continues to evolve. What does it look like to build infrastructure with developer self-service as a core tenant, how this has shaped the structure of our components and how we have worked to deliver value at multiple stages of evolution.

12:35 CEST
5 things we learned building an enterprise cloud platform on GCP at PAYBACK
Georgios Chinis and Thomas Falkenberg
If you are new to the cloud or have difficulties scaling and maintaining your cloud platform without jeopardizing compliance, security and stability, this session is for you. One year ago we started from almost zero to a running platform for multiple product teams based on the Google Cloud Platform. We made a lot of decisions on the way and are constantly challenged to find the right balance between standardization and compliance and team autonomy. I will share our major learnings which range from why bother with cloud in the first place, to tuning cloudbuild and terraform executions up to running a successful platform team and how to collaborate with product teams.
