Speakers & Topics

Gayathri Ramanujam: "Domain Driven Design - Practical Applications and Challenges"

Domain Driven Design ideas and processes are simple, however navigating implementation and driving adoption can be tricky.We will explore about how does one go about implementing this from scratch.Do you try to do the big push or do smaller increments. Get an insider look into some of different types of implementations taken from my experience.

Maggie Casey: "A Brief and Incomplete History of Women in Computer Science"

Amanda Munoz: "Extreme Programming"

Courage, simplicity, and respect might not be the first words that comes to mind when thinking about software development. In this talk, I will describe how applying these values, as well as the other values and principles of Extreme Programming, can improve your software development and teams.

Preethi Shravan: "Deep Learning"

Food and drinks will be provided!

If you'd like to give a lightning talk (or longer talk!) at a future event, please fill out this form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPo8oBe1BHOWeRy5CxWVhIH4nMTuXVRdIFiXxgng4VVyg4bg/viewform#start=invite). If you'd like to speak but don't have a topic in mind, let us know and we can help you brainstorm. The talk doesn't have to be technical and the only requirement is that others should be able to learn something from it. The talks will be short (6-8 minutes + a couple of minutes for Q&A) so shouldn't require a lot of preparation.
