  1. Introduction

    A/V setup, small introduction to the Porto Codes project, and a warm up to the night’s presentation.

  2. Implementing Grading System Soup-To-Nuts

    Sooner or later each software development company approaches the point where it requires a grading system. The process of creating and implementing such systems requires a lot of effort and can easily fail at any stage because of various circumstances. My presentation will help engineering managers and C-level managers understand the basic pros and cons of such systems and give them algorithms for choosing between different approaches. From an individual contributor’s perspective, it might be useful for a better understanding of why companies have such systems and how they are created.

  3. Choreography and Diligence

    In this talk, pkoch will be highlighting the trade-offs of microservices and proposing instead using packages as boundaries.

  4. Dinner, maybe?

    We will have dinner downtown, please let us know of any dietary restrictions so we can plan accordingly. Afterwards it is customary to go for ice cream at Santini and continue the conversation.
