Speakers

Chris Collins

Chris has been a full stack engineer for over 10 years gaining a variety of experience, from working in small and big teams to managing them. Interesting facts about Chris:

  • He designed a Christmas number one single during my previous career as a designer
  • Once, Jeff Bezos acknowledged his presence in his previous engineering role

The 5 habits for a highly effective code base

In my talk, I will explore how data visualisation can be used to help improve the engineering community's coding and contribution habits. I will present some good and bad behaviours in code contributions at an individual, team and group level.

For example, is the code community support distributed well in team or held up by a single point of awesomeness?

Are you able to spot which teams practice Scrum or Kanban though the data?

Hibri Marzook, Principal Consultant at Contino

Pipelines are dead by

In this talk, Hibri will ask you to take a different point of view of software delivery pipelines, and how our current view of them has hindered how we deliver software.

He’ll explore how we can think beyond delivery pipelines, and how to put the creators of the systems we build at the centre of it all.

We always expect high demand for our events, so if interested, please signup ASAP via the Meetup page. For all other queries please email events@oliverbernard.co.uk.

Look forward to seeing some of you there on Thursday 9th August at 18:00.
