  • An evolutionary architecture supports incremental, guided change across multiple dimensions. For many years, software architecture was described as the “parts that are hard to change later”. But then microservices showed that if architects build evolvability into the architecture, change becomes easier. This talk, based on our recent book, investigates the family of software architectures that s...

  • A key strength of neural networks is their composability which allows them to process different forms of input and output data. In this talk, Matt describes the basic building blocks of neural networks and how they handle varying types of data (such as images & text) as well as varying datasets sizes. He reviews how a novel set of problems can be solved with interesting combinations of these piec...

  • They used to be pets, then we turned them into cattle, when all we ever wanted was a good steak. Developers just want to run code reliably and repeatably. Instead, they spend their time with pet servers or caring for their herd. We’ve relegated hardware to a distant memory, and it is time to do the same for our idea of what a server is. In this talk, James and Fernando will cover the landscape ...

  • A typical interaction with a device or interface involves touching it. Either you're pressing buttons on a controller, swiping on a touchscreen or clicking on your laptop's trackpad. But what if you could control things without the use of your hands? What if you could use your thoughts instead? Charlie has evolved this interaction using a brain sensor and developed an open source JavaScript fram...

  • The value of defining our production infrastructure as code is unquestionable, but in 2018 we are still struggling with our local build and testing environments. All too often, starting a new project is an incredibly painful process of working out which tools we need to install, which versions will happily coexist together, and configuring them to make them behave as we would like. As the appli...

  • In recent years, we've seen an explosion in the use of microservices to avoid the limitations of backend monoliths, but many organisations continue to struggle with large, monolithic frontend codebases. In this talk, Cam will explore how to break up a web application into decoupled micro frontends, and how such an architecture can improve delivery quality and efficiency. In particular, he will s...

  • There exists a recent and disturbing trend in the software quality space for people to view themselves as "test automation engineers" or similar, and to focus on creating large automation suites post-hoc. These suites are normally generated verbatim from acceptance criteria and mapped directly to UI-automation tests. The guiding principle appears to be that no bug shall ever reach production. Whi...

  • Digital transformation has reinforced the success of an iterative and distributed approach to change, yet many organisations have adopted a 'big bang' or centralised mindset for their data strategy. To navigate the Artificial Intelligence (AI) landscape we should look to continuously augment human abilities at scale - in terms of speed, volume or quality - rather than simply look for the next wav...
