This week at Skills Matter: 31 March – 4 April 2014


Expect to find out where social platforms like Facebook and Twitter are at the moment, and where things might be heading at this event organised by The Social Developers London. Seven fantastic speakers, ready to let you know what is really going on in the social technology world.


London Clojurians will be joined by Ambrose Bonnaire-Sergeant who will be running through static typing, it’s uses and benefits, and how to add it to Clojure. Ambrose has been working on typed Clojure since his honours dissertation, and with his experience this is an event that should not be missed.

London Titanium will be with us to run through Node.ACS and JSON compression. Both talks will be running through its uses, its benefits and drawbacks.

The Pentaho User Group will be joined by four speakers, all explaining how Pentaho can be used in multiple areas, such as Geo-informatic visualisation to helping better a Charity.

Austin Bingham and Robert Smallshire will be delivering a joint In The Brain session with a presentation on the reality of doing DDD with Python, using experiences taken from building industrial domain models in Python in the energy sector to support high performance computing applications.

Thursday & Friday:

CukeUp! is finally upon us this week. A conference co-organised by Skills Matter and Cucumber Ltd, where you will have the opportunity to catch up on the latest developments and ideas as well as the best practices when using Cucumber. This year a full day of hands-on workshops has been added for delegates to experience, much more closely, the aspects of BDD and Specification by Example. If you haven’t already purchased a ticket, make sure you do so with only a few more spaces left!
