We are proud to present a special edition Craft Meetup as part of the Meetup Evening, which is a warmup event for the Craft Conference. https://craft-conf.com/2016
You can meet two well-known international speakers at Emarsys.
Houssam Fakih: My team, Me and the full-time pair-programming. "In February, I celebrated my 4th anniversary developing using full-time pair-programming. By full-time I mean that when I arrive in the morning at work I do not have my own computer. I share a computer all the day with another developer of my team. At first sight, it might look easy, amazing and a kind of luxury. Instead of having one person to develop a new functionality we have two persons that work together on it. In reality, it is a tiring but exciting work: ‘Tiring’ because you need to have more skills than solo developers. Among these skills we can mention: coordination, accuracy, stamina, flexibility, balance, etc. ‘Exciting’ because it challenges you and if it does not challenge you it does not change you. The challenge is not only technical but also human and psychological.”
Adam Tornhill: Software design, team work and other man-made disasters. "There's more to software development than technology. More projects fail for social reasons than due to technologies or tools. To understand why, we need to dive into social psychology to uncover the intersection between technical decisions and people. In this session you'll learn to mine social information from source code repositories. You'll see how the way you chose to organise affects the code you write and how an architecture is as much a social as a technical design. As a bonus, you'll learn about social biases and how to fight them." www.adamtornhill.com
This event will be in English. The venue opens at 5.30 pm. The presentations start at 6:00 pm, so please don't be late! After the talks it's pizza-time (maybe beer, too.)
