Merge comes to the awesome Porto! Having such a success in Lisbon, with past speakers from StackOverflow, EngineYard and ElasticSearch, among many others, now it's time to rock the house of FCP and Douro river.
Entrance is free, you're welcome to bring as many guests as you want, and drinks and snacks are on us! Can we count on you?
18:30 - Welcome, finos & bifanas
19:00 - From Ruby to Elixir by Igor Šarčević
(Do you want to extend your Ruby applications to handle millions of requests backed with a rock solid fault tolerant platform?
Elixir is probably a great choice for you. In this session I'll share some insights about Elixir, and describe how we managed to speed up parts of our infrastructure by introducing Elixir/Erlang into our stack.)
19:45 - Break
20:00 - Creating a great engineering culture - Roundtable with António Arrais de Castro (GlassesGroupGlobal), Jose António Silva (Devscope), Mariana Salvaterra (Blip.pt) and Teresa Carreiro (Critical Manufacturing). "What makes great teams? How much autonomy and transparency is right? Why would you join some teams and not others?" Featuring four speakers from different backgrounds, we'll discuss these and other topics in a very interactive session, moderated by Vânia Gonçalves (Research | R&D Coordinator).
20:45 - Networking (and probably more drinks...)
