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 - What Do You Mean?

The job title is "software engineer", but you seem to live in meetings. You'd like to have time to code, but nobody else is onboarding the junior engineers, updating the roadmap, talking to the users, noticing the things that got dropped, asking questions on design documents, and making sure that everyone's going roughly in the same direction. Without those things, the team won't be as successful.

But now someone's suggesting that you might be happier in a "less technical" role. If I just described you, congratulations: you're the glue! If it's not, have you thought about who is filling this role on your team?
