Announcing the DDD Scotland Community Room

Not long to wait until DDD Scotland and we wanted to introduce you to our latest exciting addition, our DDD Scotland community room! This year we wanted to make DDD even more community focused and thought how better to do that than get people talking and giving new speakers the chance to get experience.

The other rooms will be fully booked with back to back talks, the community room will have a mix of sessions and also some unscheduled slots to allow collaboration.

This room will feature:

*Lightning talks are 15 minutes sessions for new speakers or new material from experienced speakers. A great way to test the waters with a friendly crowd!

*Panels

We have 2 panels of experts to discuss their experiences and take questions. These are “My journey as a software developer” and “What makes a graduate software developer employable”. We will keep the panellists secret for now but we think we have a great group that should make for interesting conversations.

Have a question for the “My journey as a software developer” panel? Leave them here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8V26GKF

*Lean Coffee is an unplanned conversation where the participants suggest and vote for the topics. A great way to learn how others work in their organisation and get to know other developers.

*Mob Programming Taster

Joe will be giving us an introduction to Mob Programming, here is a description for his session:

“All the brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and on the same computer” –Woody Zuill

Everyone working together on one machine, at the same time? That can’t possibly work. Or can it?

Come along to this session, and we’ll spend 45 minutes mobbing. You might find you like it.

*Unscheduled time– we are leaving some sessions unbooked in this room to allow for community conversations and collaboration. You never know, your next job, project or friendship might be made at DDD Scotland!

One of the main aims from Scottish Developers team is to grow our community of developers in Scotland and beyond so this is really exciting for us! We can’t wait til see you all there on the day.
