What we're about

ThoughtWorks is a software consultancy - 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 Munich is a barrier free non-smoking area. The toilets are wheelchair accessible.

ThoughtWorks ist eine Software Beratung – und eine Gemeinschaft von engagierten, zielorientierten Menschen.

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 ThoughtWorker 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 München ist eine barrierefreie Nichtraucherzone. Die Toiletten sind mit Rollstühlen zugänglich.

TW presents: Build pipelines that don't suck

ThoughtWorks Munich

Did you ever spend a day or more trying to figure out why your CI pipeline is red? I know I did. A crappy setup can make your life unnecessarily harder. Conversely, a good setup can allow you to move fast, iterate quickly and deliver value while being confident that you are not breaking anything. Mario will to talk about what makes a pipeline useful for him, and how you can get there without losing your mind in the process. ABOUT MARIO: Mario develops software for a living. Then he goes home and continues reading about software, because he just cannot get enough. At some point somebody thought it was a good idea to make him the technical lead of an agile team. He quickly discovered that building things himself is not the same as helping somebody else figure it out. He learned, somewhat to his surprise, that he really enjoys sharing ideas. According to their feedback, other developers have managed to learn something from Mario. At least they don't tend to run away screaming, which is, as he thinks, a good thing. SNACKS: As always we are offering various snacks and, beer and soft drinks. No full meal, but at least something to eat.
