Edinburgh TechMeetup Talks for 14th November

(Justin Matters) #1

Hi everyone!

TechMeetup Edinburgh is meeting on Wednesday 14th November 2018 at the normal time of 6:30pm at our new venue which is CodeBase at 38 Castle Terrace, EH3 9DZ. Here’s a map to the venue: https://goo.gl/maps/vGxnZeziwdJ2 .

You need to enter from the Castle Terrace entrance. Someone will be on-hand at reception to let you in.

This month we have talks from:

Rachel Willmer - “DevOps: Why the Startup CEO should care and how to convince them with numbers” - This talk will take some examples of DevOps projects and show how to describe them to show that they are an investment not a cost. Make your CEO want to put money into your DevOps project, not fight to hold it back.

Andrew Samtoy - “What We Wish You Would Say!” - Contrasting different communication styles in tech with examples from Scotland, London and Silicon Valley. How do some tech teams and tech communities achieve more than others?

There’s (free) drinks, pizza, snacks and plenty of time around the talks to catch up on the latest tech news and gossip.

As always, the event is free and no sign-up is necessary.

Big thanks to our sponsors: Skyscanner, Cultivate and Informatics Ventures.

TechMeetup is a community event, so if you want to speak or help out in some way please email me or speak to one of the organisers at the event. In December we will be having 5 minute Flash Talks, please get in touch if you would like to do one.

See you on Wednesday14th! Remember we have moved to CodeBase!
