Talk Night - Engineering Methodologies with WebHack


Welcome to our Talk Night in partnership with WebHack community! Join us for a night of knowledge sharing about Development Methodologies, some drinks and pizza!

🎤 Talk 1: Scaling Software Development: Teams & Codebase

Setup your environment, code, commit, push and deploy, simple like that. When you are working alone, on a small personal project. When the development team and the codebase start to grow, things need to change.

This talk is about the challenges of scaling software development, multiplying team size and system complexity, and some strategies to deal with them. Including but not limited to: team sizes, code organization, quality assurance and automation.

🎤 Talk 2: To pair or not to pair

Pair programming is the most controversial element of Extreme programming in terms of team productivity. The speaker's team started full pair rotation from February 2019, and the team suffered but benefited. Sometimes, pair programming made more deliveries and everybody was happier, while sometimes the opposite. The speaker will share the stories about when to pair, when not to, and the whys.

This talk is an extended version for the conference talk in Women Who Code CONNECT Asia 2019 in Singapore.
