More Reliable Delivery with Monte Carlo & Mapping

Why Bother With Kotlin - Not Just Another Language Tour

Why should a developer come to this talk?

Presidential Campaigns & Immutable Infrastructure

QCon: Aside from supporting a website, people might ask why would a Presidential campaign need immutable infrastructure? What are some use cases that the team had to handle and how large was the team?
