January 2016 – Lightning talks

A big thanks to everyone who came to our first meetup of the year. It was one of our busiest yet with 52 people through the door!

We’d like to thank our two speakers, Andy Wooton and Paul Boocock for speaking. Also to Trevor Adams for hosting our open discussion session.

This meetup saw the arrival of our new sponsor, TopCashback. Alongside iWeb, they will be helping with the ongoing costs of running the meetup.

The open discussion session was a big success again, thanks to Trevor Adams for hosting it. We are keen to run this on a regular basis moving forward.

Lightning talks

We’ve included a summary of the evenings talks below.

Fighting Intertwingularity

Presented by Andy Wootton

“EVERYTHING IS DEEPLY INTERTWINGLED. In an important sense there are no ‘subjects’ at all; there is only all knowledge, since the cross-connections among the myriad topics of this world simply cannot be divided up neatly… People keep pretending they can make things hierarchical, categorizable and sequential when they can’t”. OR CAN THEY?

Continuously delivering software to big brands

Presented by Paul Boocock

The ability to react and deliver quickly is a vital component to the way we work. Our clients run some of the biggest brands in the world, so how do we continuously deliver software whilst ensuring we keep our clients happy and our quality high? This talk will take you on a journey from a developers mind to our customer’s hands from writing the first test to deploying your changes to a live environment using a variety of techniques and tools.
