What we're about

Bash! is an event for developers organised by developers. Since 2012 we have sought to bring interesting and thought-provoking speakers working at the cutting edge of software development to your doorstep.

The focus of Bash is unashamedly on current and upcoming trends in software. We don't focus on a specific language or technology but rather prefer to explore the full, rich tapestry of what is happening in the world of software. If it's interesting and relevant then it will be on our radar.

The Big Ideas BASH

Oh Yeah Music Centre

We are delighted to welcome John Nolan and Paul Johnston for an evenings debate, based around ethics in Software Development. Expect a challenging evening of robust deliberation, wherein our shared assumptions about the merits of our profession and its value in society are put through the wringer and potentially eviscerated. There will be two talks, with plenty of opportunity for discussion, and food courtesy of our generous sponsors Liberty IT and Instil. Agile : Considered Morally Harmful Agile is good, right ? Or is it ? This session, through collaborative argument, provides an opportunity for the audience to consider Agile software development from the perspective of morals and ethics. Indeed, it’s aim is to gain agreement that there are serious moral and ethical concerns that we need to be aware of when practicing Agile development. Sustainable Clouds - How Tech affects Climate Change Come and find out how about the business risks of climate change and how that affects the world of technology and cloud, and how the major cloud vendors are reacting to climate change and what that means for you, your code and your business. You will learn about how important industry decisions are compared to personal decisions, and how your business decisions about where to run your applications affects the climate, and the questions that you should be asking of your cloud vendors and suppliers regarding where their energy comes from. It is possible for the tech world to have a positive impact on climate change and mitigate their business risk at the same time. Come and find out how. *Please note - event is taking place in Oh Yeah Music Centre, Gordon Street Belfast.
