GeekNight February 2020

Details

ThoughtWorks released their most recent Technology Radar, Vol. 21 (https://www.thoughtworks.com/radar). In February 2020 GeekNight we are going to discuss the details about the same.

If you haven't seen it before, it's an interactive publication that explores the direction our industry is heading. We cover the cutting-edge techniques, tools, platforms and frameworks being developed today and discuss how to apply them to your own work.

The Radar is created by our Technology Advisory Board, a diverse group of senior technology leaders from all over the ThoughtWorks' world. They meet regularly to discuss the technology strategy for ThoughtWorks and the technology trends that impact our industry.

Below are the themes for Tech Radar Vol. 21

Cloud: Is More Less?
Cloud providers rush new services to market in a competitive frenzy. Beware the rough edges and friction of early adoption.

Protecting the Software Supply Chain
Modern delivery pipelines protect more and more aspects of creating software artefacts as we evolve toward governance as code.

Interpreting the Black Box of ML
The power of machine learning (ML) matches its inscrutability. Explainability is growing in importance when choosing models, as are tools for interpreting the model output.

Software Development as a Team Sport
Innovation thrives by pulling separate specialisations into collaborative and cross-functional "10x teams."
