Event description

Description

‘Software Art Thou?’ is a series of high quality entertaining talks about all aspects of software.

Each night is focused on one presenter and their ideas, so you can get straight to the good parts. No long agendas, no boring announcements, no awkward setup — just food, music, and an interesting talk about software.

Professionally catered finger food suitable for all tastes, (including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free diets) as well as drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), will be served throughout the night.

So, no matter what your background is, if you’re involved in the software industry, then you’re guaranteed to learn something interesting and maybe even look at the world in a slightly different way.

The Talk

As technology increasingly becomes more integrated into our lives, the companies of the future are going to be the ones that meld human relationships with technology. AI might one day change our relationships with computers, but today, we still need people to negotiate, empathise and sympathise in our daily interactions. How do we build systems that work well with real relationships? And how do we scale our technology communications so that they still feel human?

As product managers, designers and engineers, we always want to create human and humane experiences as we scale our products and companies.
