Filipe Mendes – The Legend of Documentation: A markdown to the past
The great majority of programmers agree that documentation is useful but not that many will take the time to write it. If code is the real source of truth, why bother writing documents that might soon get outdated? In this talk Filipe will tell you his story on how documentation helped ease the integration of new colleagues, how it promotes knowledge sharing and how it helped preventing internal disagreements.
Gareth Shapiro – This talk will give you superpowers
Gareth has a secret and it’s time to come clean. Completely by accident he discovered how to nurture superpowers.
You too can live in a world where money has no meaning.
You too can experience people giving you expensive things.
You too can be stopped in the supermarket, and chased down the road, by admirers.
You too can get access to high powered people in fancy board rooms.
You too can have people actually respond to your tweets ….
All you have to do is put the secrets in this talk in to practice.
Ataul Munim – How empathy relates to effective feedback
We’ll look at what effective feedback is, and how it relates to empathy. We’ll cover distinct forms of feedback and in which situations each is most impactful.
Social: The Sea Horse
We understand that some people have other commitments, and cannot spend the whole evening with us. Because of this we start early, try to run very close to time, and we do not take questions after the talks. This allows everyone to benefit from the main part of the evening, and then, if you are able, you can join us after for the social where typically some, if not all, of the speakers will be on hand.
