Workshops

  • Venue details below
  • 22 MARCH, 7, 10 & 13 JUNE 2019

We're hosting three full-day training workshops before the conference to help you be a better people developer, demystify management and explore tech lead skills.

Please note, the workshop tickets are sold separately from the conference and one of the workshops takes place at a different venue.


Be a brilliant people developer

People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.

Demystifying Management

When you switch from an individual contributor role to a manager role, you might find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty. What does success look like as a manager? How do you know if you’re doing a good job or not, with such a long feedback loop between your actions and their outcome? How do you set the right tone and expectations for your team?

Tech Lead Skills for Developers

Congratulations! You’re now a Tech Lead? But what are you supposed to do differently than when you were just a software engineer? Many companies do not prepare people for the transition into a new role, that demands new skills. In this course, we will explore the definition of a Tech Lead, understand the different skills required to be an effective Tech Lead and learn some tools that you can immediately apply in your own team.
