One-day Open Space
Please Note: You will need to register you attendance at https://ti.to/deniseyu/one-day-open-space Please join us on Saturday, May 12 for a One-Day Open Space! This is an independently-run event, by and for the London and Cambridge software communities. With Socrates UK approaching fast, whether you're an Open Space veteran or newcomer, come along for a day of learning and sharing ideas. Who should attend? This event is geared towards people who work in or are interested in software development. All disciplines are welcome: software engineering, product management, design, testing, managers, and more. All experience levels are welcome, whether you are just beginning your journey or if you've spent many years in the industry. What is an Open Space? An Open Space is a loosely structured conference (you may have heard the term "unconference") where the timeslots and rooms are decided, but the content is decided on the day of, by the participants. Most sessions usually end up being about software development, methodology, practices, people skills, etc. What sessions have been run in the past? A huge variety of topics including "Mob Programming in Rust", "AWS Explained Like I'm 5", "How to Give Better Feedback", "Functional Reactive Programming in JavaScript", "Going 'Post-Technical'", "Diversity in Tech Retrospective" and many more! You do not have to be a subject matter expert to propose a session! Why is no food provided at this event? This is an independently-organised event with no sponsor. Pivotal's office has snacks and drinks which you are welcome to, but we will not be organising breakfast or lunch. (Why not charge for a ticket price? Long story short... we wanted to, but Denise failed to sort out UK business registration ahead of time and it's not legal for us to personally charge for tickets on this platform!)

What we're about

Public Group

This is a community for those who care and are proud of what they do. For those developers, regardless how experienced they are, who want to improve and master their craft.

This is a community for those who believe that being average is just not good enough.

The Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship

As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work we have come to value:

Not only working software, but also well-crafted software
Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value

Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals

Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable.
