Tech Explorer DevOps, Omniplan, Netherlands

Stacy is Tech Explorer DevOps at Omniplan

She’s been developing software since the mid-1990s and has been speaking about improving the way we develop software at conferences and meetups since 2018

As well as sparing with the software architect about technical issues, she spends her time helping the development team, and the wider company, with continuous improvement in terms of technical work, process and, of course, working together as a team.

Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her classic car, cooking, playing the piano badly and spending time with her family, doing amongst other things, building a Lego modular building city in their house.

Embrace the pitfalls (Our stop start journey to Change)

As developers, we want to work in a modern way, to get fast feedback on what we are building to make sure that we are building the right things in the right way.

However, many companies are still at the start of their journey. Things take longer than we would like to get moving, sometimes change can seem to happen at a glacial pace and whilst you are ready to try and run, others are finding their feet - or even digging in their heels!

In this talk, Stacy will go over some of the pitfalls that have happened to her, and the lessons that she has learned from them. Unfortunately, there are no magic solutions to make the problems go away, but hopefully, you can look at the mistakes she has made and go away to make your own new ones to learn from!


How to really work as a team - from sleepy to strong pair programming

So many people think that pair programming is a boring waste of time and effort. I'm here to explain how our team made it work, and what benefits we got out of it!

I love working in a team, bouncing ideas off each other and using our combined strengths to produce something that as individuals we wouldn't be able to come up with.

One way I like to do this is pair programming. But, when I talk to people about this, I often get told it's a waste of time. That it’s about one person working hard whilst the other looks on, superfluous to the process. And let's face it, most of us have experienced this when trying it out!

But I’m going to show you how we went from this sleepy type of pair programming to being super productive when working with multiple developers at one machine!

Not the one person working, one person staring into space type of pair programming, but actually providing value to each other, making the extra effort worthwhile, and bringing extra benefits to the team as a whole.


Getting Started with Azure Command and Query

So, you want to migrate to Azure? You’ve read the success stories, and you see the benefits yourself.

But just how do you get started? And how do you convince those who don’t see the benefits as you do?

In this talk, we will get started on the Azure development route. Usinga site that communicates with a Web API and then, using message queues and functions, to store data from the user in table storage. And creating the resources needed to deploy the app within the Azure portal!

So that when you leave you can explore for yourself!
