Big Mountain Data & Dev Conference

On 10-11 November 2017, I had the opportunity to speak at Big Mountain Data & Dev Conference (aka Utah Code Camp) in Salt Lake City, Utah. I gave 3 talks across the 2 days.

Code Review - 10 November 2017
According to a 2016 survey by Smart Bear Software code reviews are the #1 way to improve code quality. Come to this session to learn the benefits of reviewing code, as well as different tools and techniques for conducting code reviews.

Professional Software Craftsmanship - 11 November 2017
As our profession grows and matures, it becomes more and more important for us to develop a sense of what it means to be a software professional. Analogies to existing professions are easily drawn. Precision and analytical problem solving are essential. So are we engineers? Creativity and willingness to try things we’ve never done are core to success. So are we artists? We are a new breed of professional that draws on but is unique from what has come before.

An Architecture for Autonomy - 11 November 2017
In the 5 years that I have worked as an architect at Pluralsight, we have grown from one team of 4 engineers to over a dozen teams totaling more than 100 smart, professional software craftsmen. During this time, we have also acquired more than half a dozen companies and disassembled a single monolith 40+ bounded contexts with hundreds of independent microservices. Come to this talk to learn how we integrated .NET, PHP, Python, NodeJS, Ruby, Elixer, Scala and soon Go into a single, functional product offering. Come to this talk to learn how we have embraced team autonomy to create an architecture that allowed us to deliver more than 60 new user experiences over the last year.
