Please join us for the May edition of codebar Monthlies while the sun is still out!

We'll have food and drinks as you turn up. There are breaks between talks. We aim to finish around 20:30.

Long talks 🗣

Sagar Patil (he/him) : "Topics from a CS degree you should be aware of"

If you are working or planning to work in a technical role but don't have a CS degree, don't worry. We'll try to go through some of the things that you might need to be aware of.

Kavita Kalaichelvan (she/her) : "Navigating Legacy Code "

A large portion of a developer’s time is spent reading and navigating other people’s code - the larger (and older) the codebase, the tricker this job gets. One of the most overwhelming things a junior developer can face in their first day at work is staring at thousands of files with no idea where to begin and how to start.

This talk aims to deal with countering some of that anxiety. We’ll be talking about how to dig your way through a legacy codebase, covering everything from tools you can use, the attitude you should have and some takeaways from my own experience in the area.

Short talks ⚡️

Ana Rodrigues (she/her) :“Blogging is for everyone”

Having a blog seems like an idea that some of us would like to build but end up not doing it. Why do we hesitate to publish? This is a talk about how you can write about what you want and not be afraid about not being innovative, cool or experienced.
