Opening Remarks, Nicole Forsgren, Host

Plato would be a programmer, Fred Fisher
Philosophy is to programming what physics is to engineering. Things we use every day like classes and objects are described in Plato’s metaphysics. If Plato was alive today, he would be awestruck by the power we have to shape the world around us using logic alone, by programming machines.

When your team is wholly distributed it can be tough to develop a team spirit, strong culture and shared approach. This talk will highlight the challenges we’ve seen and suggest tips and tricks that we have experimented with to improve this.

Deploying Radically, Democratizing Release, Heidi Waterhouse
The state of software is driving to get software out the door more quickly, an ever-accelerating pace.

What can you do as one person in an organization or one team in a company to make your software ready for the world more quickly?

Building blocks for functional programming, Daisy Shih
I would like to show you the basic building blocks for functional programming and why it’s an exciting and useful developer tool to have. Accessible to everyone!

Implementing Kubernetes – Tales from an Ops Engineer, Michael Hobbs
Everyone’s talking about Kubernetes but what about the team who have to run it? How different is it from your traditional LAMP stack and what should you expect? This talk gives you an Ops Engineers perspective on implementing Kubernetes in an modern e-commerce business.

Speaker’s Ballads, Jo Pearce
