Charlie Gerard - Experimenting with Creative Technologies
How coding can be more creative than we think and how innovative technologies can help solve problems in new ways.
Tran To - Introduction to Reactive Programming
Reactive programming has been introduced since 2014. However, adopting this approach is still quite new to the majority. Through the talk, the audience will gain the following knowledge:
1. What is Reactive programming?
2. The combination of Reactive programming and MVVM
3. Why we should consider to adopt Reactive programming
4. Sharing resource
Carolyn Choy - Dealing with Stress: Having the Emotional Advantage
Over-reacting? Over-sensitive? Apparently too emotional? Having started out as a Unix systems administrator and finishing as head of an IT department, I know how tough it can be to be a female who expresses her emotions and work in the male-dominated IT industry. Now as a qualified relational psychotherapist I will speak about how to harness our emotional advantage and use it as a means to guard ourselves against anxiety and depression—all without talking about meditation!
Note: Please try to arrive on time as the lifts need swipe access to get to Level 6. There will be someone to swipe people up, but they can’t stay downstairs forever!
If you arrive early, you may need to wait in Atlassian's reception area until our door-person arrives, as they need to mark your name off our Guest List.
Our pizzas are full of gluten and cheese, so if you have any food intolerances, you're best off bringing a snack! There will be vegetarian options.
