What we're about

This is The SocialCode. Our aim is to create an environment where developers of all levels can come and feel a part of the conversation, focusing not just on the sharing of knowledge but also creating a true sense of community.

With The SocialCode, no matter where you are in your software development career you can be part of the conversation. You are welcome to contribute to any discussion or presentation no matter how much or little previous experience you have with a topic and most importantly, you are welcome in The SocialCode circle to contribute as much or as little as you'd like. This is about what suits you as a developer.

Moving forward, we're always looking for new contributors to the group. So if you're a developer with a burning desire to share some of your knowledge and create a conversation, a collective looking to add value to the community, or simply keen to come along and watch, listen and learn then get in touch, and join The SocialCode.

The SocialCode x MCR: Psychological Safety, Observability and Unit Testing

We’re collaborating with market-leaders Street Group, to host our 12th Social Code x Manchester event! Our sponsors successfully pair the 'UK’s leading estate agency talent with tomorrow’s technology.' 🤩

We've got some incredible speakers, who are renowned in the North West tech scene, lined-up to discuss a range of refreshing topics – (check out their full bios below 👇).

There’s going to be interesting conversations around how psychological safety can impact teams, in what way observability can provide a better understanding across the organisation, and how using TypeScript and the Jest testing framework helps to influence coding. 💡

THE SPEAKERS:
Chris Grice - Head of Engineering at Street Group: ‘Building with Trust - Psychological Safety in Dev Teams’

Psychological safety is a term that gets thrown around a lot, but how does it impact your team, and what can you do about it? This talk will dive into the concept in a bit more detail - where did it originate, how do you recognise it, what are the effects on your teams, and how do you go about improving it?
This talk is designed for developers, managers, and anyone interested in fostering high-performing, inclusive teams within the tech industry. Ideally, you’ll come away with some actions you can take to measure and improve the level of trust in your teams.

Toli Apostolidis - Head of Engineering Practice at Cinch: ‘A Culture of Observing: How to get a better understanding across the organisation through observability’

For years testable systems have helped us amplify flow, feedback, learning and experimentation. However, this still doesn’t enhance our understanding of the health of our business transactions in production. Observability is the missing piece of the puzzle that will finally shift our attention right: to understand the systems that matter. Software systems are becoming increasingly more observable by the people who build the systems themselves. Observable systems democratise the understanding of systems where Analytics and Data have fallen short.

Steve Atkinson - Senior Software Engineer at Clock: ‘Building and testing with TypeScript’

Unit testing codes help to build up documentation on the expected behavior of code. It also helps to break down functionality into bitesize chunks that are easy to understand. This talk aims to show you how Steve builds a suite of tests using TypeScript and the Jest testing framework, and how it helps to influence how codes are written.
