Practical Steps Towards Diversity
by Jessica Rose
With the increased attention on creating supportive representation spaces, diversity has become a shared goal for most developer communities. But little on how individuals and orgs can act to diversify existing structures has been mapped out. This talk will focus on low impact ways that individuals, groups and organisations can work to foster long and short term diversity.
Jessica Rose (@jesslynnrose) is a self taught technologist with a focus on technical education and accessibility. Founder of Open Code and co-founder of Trans*Code she's always interested in hearing about new projects to make technology more accessible.
Awesomely Productive Teams
by Zan Kavtaskin
Most teams are now using some flavour of Agile or Lean Production such as Scrum, Extreme Programming and many more.
However most people and companies don't know why we are using these methodologies, where they came from and what they are trying to achieve.
Zan's interactive, hands-on talk will explore the origins of the Agile & Lean Production and its core concepts such as Continuous flow, Theory of Constraints and Pull Systems.
Lean Production has completely changed the car manufacturing industry and now it's changing the software development industry, let's find out why.
Unity? Child's Play!
by Leif Kemp
This month we welcome our youngest ever speaker, Leif Kemp!
Leif will be talking us through building worlds in the popular 3d game engine Unity - and how you can make your interactions feel like more than just a dustbin with a camera attached!
Leif Kemp (@silverslyder) is a 13 year old who discovered Unity, toyed around with it and hopes to become a great games developer.
See you there!
