Events

A quick log of the events I visited/held/participated in to continuously get a better programmer.

SWK Karlsruhe: Mutation Testing

I offered to prepare a session about Mutation Testing and my experiences within a private and work project with it so far. Very casual and interactive as always :)


Lesson learned:
A small turnout is a great opportunity for a very interactive session with great and in-depth discussions.

Global Day of Code Retreat 2019

Together with Urs, Peter and Thomas, I facilitated the Global Day of Code Retreat in Karlsruhe. Thanks to @petfic for hosting us again superbly at FiduciaGAD.


Lesson learned:
It is great that there are still newcomers joining every year, who have never been on a coderetreat.

SAP

Global Day of Coderetreat 2019

We took the opportunity of the two day GDCR to organize an internal coderetreat @ SAP as well. It was a great start with roughly 30 participants.


Lesson learned:
Beeing the main organizer for the first time makes you realize just how many (little) things need to come together. The overall format feels really battle-proof.

Busconf

Busconf 2019

Two full days of open space in Rückersbach (near Aschaffenburg) Friday and Saturday. Lightning Talks to start things of on Thursday.


Lesson learned:
Bartosz Milewski was on-site and did a great job explaining a lot of category theory. Additionally I learned about "transducers", awesome concept.

Softwerkskammer

OpenSpace @ Fiducia Gad

A one day OpenSpace, organized by the Softwerkskammer, hosted by Fiducia Gad.


Lesson learned:
It always feels good to dare to host a session. I never had a bad experience even though I was mostly not the best informed person in the room. Everybody is helpful and the discussions are always informative.

SWK Rhein-Neckar: Git Internals

I was asked to do my Git Internals talk at an event hosted by Softwerkskammer Rhein-Neckar, organized by Gregor Trefs. Very casual and interactive as always :)


Lesson learned:
This talk somehow never fails do deliver. Always interesting, always great questions from the audience, and I'm also learning something new every time.

Cpp UG

CppUG – Mäxchen/Mia

I was invited to moderate another event at the C++ UG in Karlsruhe, this time Mäxle/Mia. A small udp-based server coordinates rounds played by bots developed by teams of two.


Lesson learned:
I need to improve my question for the retrospective at the end, to spice it up. Having all teams use the same language and therefore ecosystem levels the playing field significantly, and thus makes it more interesting.

OpenHpi

OpenHPI Course: IPv6 in modern networks

As part of my continuous learning efforts I finished this short MOOC course. Quick (two weeks), but short and sweat refresher for IPv6.


Lesson learned:
The idea of short and focused learnings is starting to grow on me. Even though the content is most of the times rather shallow, these MOOC courses are nice refreshers.

Legacy Code Retreat

Thomas, LogMeIn and the SWK hosted a Legacy Code Retreat in Karlsruhe. Same schedule as a normal Code Retreat, but instead of starting fresh every session we used an existing legacy code codebase (trivia).


Lesson learned:
My first Legacy Code Retreat, and it was a good one. Definitely a worthwhile variation of the original code retreat format. Awesome location, excellent food and a great team.

OpenSpace @ Fiducia Gad

A one day OpenSpace, organized by the Softwerkskammer, hosted by Fiducia Gad.


Lesson learned:
Again a great day, to get a pointer or two to try something new. This time around: contract tests with pact and application monitoring with prometheus.
