Development teams are changing, with modern developers part of smaller teams, with more responsibilities, ownership and pressure to broaden their knowledge and skill set. Today, they need to better understand the full code delivery chain and how each part operates. At the same time the developer stack is constantly evolving, with more tools available to enable them to deliver code in shorter deployment cycles and timeframes.

These changes mean developers have so much to learn and so many tooling options to choose from that it can be difficult to know where to start. While there is no single path to follow to be successful, a consensus has emerged that offers developers a route to success.

Our event will discuss the best practices, tooling, skills and strategies that development teams should be employing to be successful. Whether you’re a developer, engineer or architect, or a senior leader in your organisation, join us on 20th October in London to learn:

  • How to think about your data architecture

  • Best practices when thinking about your cloud-native strategy

  • Tips on working cohesively as a development team

We look forward to seeing you for an evening of education and networking over some beers and pizza!
