Going to a tech conference is a bit like your first day at high school or university. You might have had some choice in where to go, or were just sent there. You might know a few people, or you might be new to the local community and know a couple of folks, or no-one at all. Either way, you feel like everyone else is there with their mates. It’s no surprise that some people feel very anxious at the mere thought of going. Also, conferences come in all different flavours and formats. It can be hard to know which ones to choose and how to get the most value for your time and money. Suze takes you through why you should try it, how to decide which ones to go to and how you can get access to conference talks for free. She will go into detail about different conference formats, how to get the most out of them and how to decide which sessions to attend. For those who need networking help, Suze will give you some tips about how to approach people you don't know, get chatting and keep in touch with them.
Tatiana will tell the story of how things sometimes fell through the cracks when sending several hundred thousand emails a day to Financial Times readers, and how a better architecture, monitoring and alerting helped improve the situation. You'll learn about what a lambda is, what we did when our database couldn't cope, what good monitoring looks like and tips for using the Slack and Google APIs.
Optimising apps for performance is a topic that might slip juniors minds, as understandably, there is so much to learn starting out as a developer. However, highly-performant apps lead to better user retention, business metrics and just overall good user experience! After this talk you will have at least a few tools both simple and more complex , to improve the ‘Milestone timings’ of your app -such as the loading speed, time to interactive , size of the application for web portals and native apps.
