18:30: Doors

18:50: Intro

18:55: Talk One: Yvette - Don't kill your users, and other important lessons learnt building a medical mobile app

What if your code could change someone’s life, but a bug might kill them? As our devices have gotten smarter a world of possibility has been opened up to transform the lives of people living with chronic health conditions. Being able to manage, understand and treat their conditions using their phone could be life-changing, and maybe even life-saving. But was does that mean for developers who want to deliver on this promise?

19:15: Break

19:20: Talk Two: Amy Simmons - A guide to the care and feeding of new devs

While being a junior developer is incredibly exciting, it can also be overwhelming. This presentation will give you an insight into life as a junior developer, and offer suggestions on how juniors can be better supported in the workplace.

19:40: Break

19:45: Talk Three: Sabrina Leandro - Do Repeat Yourself

How do you communicate with the rest of the team when you're engaged in a long-running technical project like a rewrite or migration? Communication can often become stale and irrelevant to everyone else. Sabrina Leandro will provide tactics for keeping your team in the loop. Sabrina is former Director of Engineering and VP of Tech at Songkick and most recently working with companies to improve their tech and processes.

20:00: Outro

20:15ish: Social, The Fence (www.thefenceuk.co.uk), 67-69 Cowcross St, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 6BP

We understand that some people have other commitments, and cannot spend the whole evening with us. Because of this we start early, try to run very close to time, and we do not take questions after the talks. This allows everyone to benefit from the main part of the evening, and then, if you are able, you can join us after for the social where hopefully some, or all, of the speakers will be on hand. We think this makes // TODO more inclusive, but if you think we can do better, do let us know.
