πŸ’£ 19:00  

Gabby Spurling - "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Your Dev Team" 

The most effective development teams offer more than strong technical capabilities. Teams do their best work when they organize their time and outputs efficiently, simplifying confusion and mess with structure and process. In this talk, Gabby will cover solutions to common process problems that enable teams to functions better and spark more joy at work.

​

πŸ’£19:30 Russ Miles - Introducing "Resiliency": Reliability for Practitioners

In this talk Russ Miles will introduce what system resiliency is, how to develop it, and why a focus on proactively, and deliberately, practicing reliability is even more important in a "Remote First" world. You can't "buy" reliability, you have to practice it to develop resiliency, and this talk will cover how.

06 meetup 

April 30, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00  Sam Newman - "Coupling, Cohesion, and Microservices"

The terms coupling and cohesion come from the world of structured programming, but they are also thrown about in the context of microservices. In this session, I look at the applicability of these terms to a microservice architecture, and also do a deep dive into the different types of coupling to explore how ideas from the 1970s still have a lot of relevance to the types of systems we build today.

πŸ’£19:30  Laura SilvanavičiΕ«tΔ—- 

"Rock n Roll in Javascript"

We are very used to generating visual results with code but are still often surprised to hear that we can create music in the same way.

Oh, you didn’t know that? Not for long! Let's shed some light on music programming using JavaScript.

03 meetup

April 9, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00 Debbie O'Brien - “Static generated sites === great performance" (VIDEO) 

Statically generated sites are the future. Seriously. With frameworks like Nuxt we can build really cool sites that look and feel like a single page application but are actually static generated. That means no need for a server but most importantly performance is amazing. Everything is generated at build time.

πŸ’£19:30 Hannes Lowette - “Challenges in building IoT backend systems” (VIDEO)

 When you develop a new device, chances are that it will need to connect to something. They will generate a never-ending stream of data. And if it becomes a hit, you’re going to need to be able to scale. The ‘Hello world’ of IoT devices is a temperature sensor, but real-world cases are a lot trickier to handle. What do you do with gaps? How do you handle application redeploys? How do you deal with state?

08 meetup 

May 14, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00  Susanne Kaiser - "Designing a Serverless Application with Domain Driven Design"

With Serverless/FaaS the unit of work is a fine-grained, ephemeral function triggered by a variety of events. One approach could be by introducing DDD - it’s a methodology to capture a business domain as closely as possible into software coming with strategic and tactical design patterns. 
In this talk, I am going to highlight how Domain Driven Design and Serverless/FaaS can go together by splitting a system into Bounded Contexts and how these Bounded Contexts can be implemented by using Serverless technologies.

​

πŸ’£19:30 Jimmy Bogard - "Distributed Tracing Made Easy with .NET Core and OpenTelemetry"

When something goes wrong in a single application, we get a nice stack trace. In a distributed system, we get almost nothing! 
In this talk, we'll look at the new diagnostics capabilities in .NET Core 3, and how we can leverage them to expose and propagate tracing data. We'll also look at the OpenTelemetry project, an effort to standardize tracing APIs and SDKs. Finally, we'll extend OpenTelementry so that our infrastructure can target any distributed tracing product, such as Jaeger, Zipkin, Application Insights, and more.

05 meetup

April 23, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00  Julie Lerman - “Turning an ASP.NET Core API into an AWS Lambda Function” (VIDEO)

As a long time .NET developer working mostly in the Microsoft ecosystem, I was surprised to learn that not only is AWS a member of the .NET Foundation but that they have a lot of APIs and tooling dedicated to .NET developers. In this short session, I’ll share a look at my latest experiment: publishing an ASP.Net Core API as an AWS Lambda Function. 

πŸ’£19:30  Ian Cooper - “Conversations” (VIDEO)

If we choose to build a distributed system using messages, we are creating a conversation between the components in that system. So that those conversations are meaningful, not just babble, we need to use one of two principles: choreography and orchestration. In this presentation, we look at what those are, and how we can use them to make messaging work for us.

02 meetup

April 2, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00 Kevlin Henney - “Messing with Time". (VIDEO)

There is something about calendars, time zones, etc., that brings out the worst in APIs. Whether you're talking about Java or C, there is a good chance that dates and times are offered in a profusion and confusion of ways. In this talk we'll look at some of the assumptions and problems experienced when programmers try to conquer time!

πŸ’£19:30 Felienne Hermans - “How to Teach Programming and Other Things?” (VIDEO)

Everyone should learn to program, right? Yes! But how? This talk shows a history of programming education and didactics beliefs in it that leads to the prevalence of exploratory forms of teaching. We’ll explore how people learn in general and how they could learn to program in particular!

07 meetup 

May 7, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00  Laura Weis - "Organisational Network Analysis"

Formal, static hierarchies are increasingly replaced by more informal, dynamic networks spanning across business functions and teams. Discover Organisational Network Analysis, a methodology that enables leaders to analyze and understand informal networks that are vital for knowledge sharing, team collaboration, individual productivity, customer engagement, and innovation. (VIDEO)

πŸ’£19:30 Mark Rendle - "Zen And The Art Of Software Development"

There is a book called Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert M. Pirsig. As he says in the introduction, it’s not really a book about Zen, or motorcycles. It’s about Quality: what it is; how to define it; how to achieve it. In software development we talk a lot about Quality, and the general consensus seems to be that we’re not very good at it. So this talk will look at Quality through the lens of the book, discussing what we might take from it and apply to the things we build, and to ourselves, to try and make things Better. Hopefully without going insane like the book’s protagonist. There will be a little bit about Zen, a little more about software development, and none at all about motorcycles.(VIDEO)

April 16, 2020 19:00 (GMT +3)

πŸ’£ 19:00 Randy Shoup - “Minimal Viable Architecture” (VIDEO) 

Most applications start as a monolith, and most should stay that way; only a minority of applications need something like microservices. We'll talk about understanding what phase our product is in, and how to make a principled decision about the kind of architecture we need right now. After all, successful companies architect for the problems they have, not the problems they *want* to have!

πŸ’£19:30 Christina Aldan - "How to Say No! Without Being a Jerk" (VIDEO) Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed because you overcommit? A recovering “People Pleaser,” I know the harm and unrest that can come with saying “yes” too often. Learn to recognize your resistance to saying “no.” Get examples of strategies you can begin to implement immediately to get better results in your life. This talk will present tips and tricks for re-training your mind to only accept invitations that will propel you forward in life.

 πŸ’£19:00 Dylan Beattie in his talk “Welcome to the Metaverse”   (VIDEO) will share some of the tips, tools, and ideas he’s learned so far - whether you’re virtualizing a conference, running remote workshops, collaborating with your team or just hanging out and chatting with your friends, we’re all learning a lot of unfamiliar technology in a big hurry. Let’s figure out how to make it fun!

πŸ’£19:30 Maryam Umar 

(VIDEO)

works in the QA field as a manager with a special focus on sustainable delivery practices. In addition to this, Maryam has been a keen advocate of creating and sustaining diverse teams! Her Thursday's topic is “Keeping on top of software quality remotely”. We bet you are eager to hear more!
