Lo que hacemos

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.

Kotlin != Android: Our experience using Kotlin in a microservices architecture

It feels that Kotlin has taken the world by storm. Our very own Tech Radar (https://www.thoughtworks.com/radar/languages-and-frameworks) features Kotlin itself, plus a bunch of other frameworks and libraries based on Kotlin. However, it seems that most talks and conferences still focus on the Android side. We want to bring a different perspective to the table. We have noticed that more and more of our projects find themselves picking Kotlin to build new services within a typical microservices setup. The experience has been positive for us, and we want to talk about it! For this meetup, we'll do three small talks to show you our experience in some of our projects. We hope you'll become as excited as we are about all the possibilities if you aren't yet. Mario Fernandez - Kotlin for microservices, why? Andrei Bechet - Error handling for a rest API backend? Vineeth Venudasan - Kotlin code in Production: Observations and learnings 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. ABOUT ANDREI: Andrei is a software developer and technology enthusiast. He loves to challenge the status quo, share ideas and participate in interesting discussions. He is as much interested in people and how to get stuff done together, as he is in tech. he/him SNACKS: As always we are offering various snacks and, beer and soft drinks. No full meal, but at least something to eat.

Global Day of Coderetreat @ ThoughtWorks Munich

ThoughtWorks Munich

Welcome to the Global Day of Coderetreat in Munich on Saturday November 16th at ThoughtWorks Munich! On Saturday, November 16th, Coderetreats will be held in cities around the world for the 2019 Global Day of Coderetreat, uniting software developers in their quest for improvement. It also happens to be the 10 year anniversary of this format. Write code, learn from others, teach someone else, and expand your network of friends who are passionate about their craft. Software developers of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome! What to Bring: Please bring your laptop with your favorite development tools (IDE, version control) and a unit test framework, everything else is provided. Background: Coderetreat is a worldwide pattern designed to hone software skills and design practices through repeated attempts to build an implementation of a well-known software problem (for example Conway's Game of Life). Unit testing and Test-Driven Development will be emphasized as key practices. Developers use pair programming and discussion to exchange knowledge, and additional constraints are given throughout the day to emphasize good design concepts and practices. More details about the format and intention at https://www.coderetreat.org/ Code of Conduct: We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, programming language, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof). And so we invite all those who participate in our event to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone. Therefore please: Be welcoming, friendly, and patient. Be respectful. Not all of us will agree with each other all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. Be aware of the effect your words may have on others. We are a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants. Harassment and other exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. Agenda: We will open the doors at 8:30am and offer a little breakfast until we will start the program at 9:30am. Lunch, coffee and beverages will be provided, so you will be able to concentrate on coding the whole day. There will be three sessions in the morning and three sessions after lunch. The official program will end around 5:00pm.
