Amy Simmons - Undefined is not a function: A guide to the care and feeding of new devs
From six years as a journalist to six months as a developer, Amy shares her coding journey and offers a stark reminder on what its like to be a junior dev.
Amy Barker - Scholars, social media and the decline of the hipster beard
Scholars dedicate their careers to researching the mysteries that intrigue us all: cancer, black holes, hipster beards. But how has social media changed the way we in the public interact with their research and do they care what we tweet? (Spoilers: Yes, they care a lot)
Georgie Luhur - Why blogging isn't what most people think it is
We have so many misconceptions and expectations about blogging and many of us believe we can’t do it. We think we don’t have anything to write about, that we aren’t good writers, or we don’t have time. We even worry about who is going to read our blog. Having been a blogger for over twelve years, I hope to share my experiences and convince you that you can blog, too.
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.
