Co-Creation Hub invites software developers and entrepreneurs to join ThoughtWorks for a discussion and demonstration of how to build a codebase that will stand the test of time. The event will happen Wednesday, March 28, 2012 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm (GMT+1).
Learn how to build a reliable suite of Unit Tests that will allow you to add features your customers want with the confidence that you have not broken everything else. Learn how this allows you to continue rapid development as your codebase grows. Learn how to use your Unit Tests in a Continuous Integration and Delivery Pipeline that will help you deploy new versions of your product on a regular basis. We will also discuss Source Control, Pairing, Refactoring, Hosting Solutions and Database selection.
ThoughtWorks is a software company. We’re also an amazing collection of humans, hired for our passion, integrity and special powers. The company was founded as a social experiment – what happens when you hire really smart, passionate people and set them loose on really tough problems? 19 years on, this collection of people has helped shape the IT industry. The problem we set ourselves now is to use software to improve humanity – becoming a role model for 21st century socially responsible companies. ThoughtWorks Africa is our latest dream. We have done some work in Sub-Saharan Africa for DataWinners and OpenMRS as part of our Social Impact Program, but our idea is to build a business providing technology consulting services to the local market, based out of Johannesburg. We welcome a Pan-African spirit and amazing human beings to help build our presence while expanding our consciousness.
