The Speaker this month is Tess Barnes
Who is a Lead Software Engineer at Made Tech

Title: Our never ending tech and career growth paths: how much is enough?
I’ve learned over the last few years: there is no end to the tech journey and no pauses along the way, unless we decide them. There are some important decisions around this, individual to each of us and to what we are taking on, but still some common themes.

Through the medium of docker we will:

  • explore how to survey the problem landscape
  • where to start
  • when we should measure value
  • how big a leap to take
  • (and most importantly) when to stop

Even if you don’t know how to read a docker file, I intend that all the principles we discuss will be transferable to your own challenges on your learning and improvement efforts, no matter where you are in your technical growth or career path.

This is a women only event but men may be invited as a guest (they just can’t be members – as this assures we keep a Female majority)

Serrie, Gudren and Maria
