Our goal as software developers is to sustainably deliver value for our organizations. Conferences are a great opportunity to learn about the challenges other teams faced (challenges you might also be facing right now) and how those challenges can be solved. However, putting even the best of advice’s into practice is hard. This exciting day-long coding challenge will provide you with an opportunity to practice continuous delivery and related agile and lean principles. You and your team will compete with other teams in delivering the most value to your product. Along the way, our mentor will spend time with you and your team and give you advice personalized to your needs.

Please make sure to bring your laptop along, and that you have your development environment set up for at least one of the supported languages: Clojure, C#, Elixir, Go, Groovy, Haskell, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Scala, TypeScript. 

What you will learn:

  • How to use a continuous deployment pipeline to your advantage
  • How to cut your feedback loop down to hours or even minutes by deploying early and often
  • How to release new versions safely using feature toggles, dark launches, and shadow features in practice
  • How to make pragmatic decisions about when and how to test your software
  • How to split responsibilities within a team for maximum effectiveness 
  • How to sustainably react to a rapidly changing market and requirements
  • How to measure the success of your product and the effects of changes you deployed
