Kathy Tafel, Director of Mobile Engineering at Meetup
A Timeless Way of Building
Kathy Tafel is Director of Mobile Engineering at Meetup where she leads the iOS and Android engineering teams. She’ll be talking about launching the new Meetup app, including things she contributed to specifically, such as continuous integration and deployment using Xcode server bots. Learn a few shell scripts that can make your life easier. Hear about their awesome decision to go all in on swift. Chat about what it’s like to join a team already underway on a huge project. Hear about how Meetup is iterating fast in response to member feedback.
