November is rushing by, and we’re looking forward to another great meetup on Monday 20th November at The Student Room offices; as announced last month, you can arrive from 18:15, with talks starting around 19:00. In a slight change from some listings, we are pleased to welcome Ian Thomas who will be Introducing Peer Review (Even if Your Boss is a Git), and then we’ll have a chance to discuss How You Work.
If you’ve not been before, you can find details of the venue here; you can keep in touch by signing up to our mailing list or joining our Facebook group where you can also tell us your coming and invite your friends . We hope to see you there!
Ian Thomas – Introducing Peer Review (Even if Your Boss is a Git)
Peer review. You’ve probably heard it’s something that people do, but it sounds like a lot of work. How can you find time to do it when your boss wants the release finished yesterday?
I’ll explain why you should be doing peer review, show you the tools to use and give you a plan to convince a skeptical development manager.
Ian Thomas is a Lead Developer at Travelopia, and has led teams working in PHP and C#. When he’s not sat behind a keyboard, he spends as many weekends as he can jumping out of aeroplanes.
Discussion – How do You Work?
Afer the pizza break, we’d like to hear about how you work – spend a few minutes giving us a window into your working world. You could talk about your workspace set-up, how you sit and what you drink; your dev systems, the tools you couldn’t live without, and the tips you wish you’d known years ago; or maybe you’d like to share your experience of peer review, project management, and how you deliver high quality code.
