February Meetup 2017hosted by Tobias Pfeiffer by solarisBank AG (www.solarisbank.de), 02.02.2017 at 19:30
Let's continue the new (and cold year) with a bunch of great talks and nice people! :)
We are in the 6th floor and you gotta go check in at the reception first - because they are the ones that can send the elevator up to the 6th floor where we are.
There will be drinks as always, but there will also be food - it's going to be Pizza.
As engineers, we pride ourselves on building and continuously improving software systems that work. When it comes to organizing our teams and our working processes, though, we often leave this thinking at the door.
In this talk, we'll look at the ways in which queuing theory governs the behaviour of software development processes. We'll understand: why a team that is working 100% of the time is not efficient; when planning ahead is counterproductive; how to organize a development process that delights engineers and business people.
In this talk we'll learn how using monadic design can lead to more fault-tolerant systems and cleaner code. This talk will not go deep on the mathematics of monads and monoids but instead will focus on showing that we can take advantage of concepts without the complete mathematical background
