Great speakers, great GOTO Nights
In October we are proud to welcome to Amsterdam at our FREE GOTO Nights:
jez Jez Humble, October 4th, 2013, will be presenting "Lean Enterprise". Jez is a Principal Consultant with ThoughtWorks. His presentation will take a scientific approach to innovation in software development. Large organizations are notoriously bad at disruptive innovation involving software. This is primarily due to cultural and organizational issues, combined with poor architecture a lack of good engineering practices.
michael Michael Nygard, October 14th, 2013 will be presenting "Five Years of DevOps: Where are we now?" It has been five years since Patrick Debois coined the term DevOps to describe a way of working together to deliver systems. In that time, we have rediscovered some gems from the past and we have invented new techniques and tools. In this session, we will take a look at what's new in the world of DevOps, what's old-but-good, and where we still need to advance.

Registration is required and there are limited seats so save your seat now

As of November 1st we’ve launched as Trifork Amsterdam. Rest-assured, we’ll still focus on the technology as we know it best, the entire team will remain intact and we’ll continue to do more of what we do best but even better ;-). If you want to know more visit our website.

JFall Winners
jfallFor those of you who visited us at JFall this year, you'll probably have done our "Get to know us" questionnaire. We're pleased to say that pretty much everyone got top marks (even if you did get a little help from us every now & then!).

However the lucky winners of the great prizes are as follows:

  • 1st prize ticket for GOTO Amsterdam, June 2013 goes to Erwin de Gier
  • 2nd prize 2 x tickets for NoSQL roadshow Amsterdam, November 2012 goes to Peter Glas & Michel Schudel

Just so you know, the amazing early bird rate of 200 EUR for the NoSQL roadshow Amsterdam is still open until 16th November. It’s a unique opportunity to gain insights from some renowned speakers around MongoDBRiakHaadoop & Cassandra,Neo4J and much more. At the end of the session you’ll have no questions around the NoSQL space that’s for sure, so sign up here or contact us for more information. If you can not make it to Amsterdam, a week later the roadshow will be in London too.

It’s not all just all about coding: tech meeting December  

Of course we are technology geeks but we also look beyond the code too. This month our two sessions will cover:

  1. Web Application Security, an introduction into how to ensure your web application doesn't make it to the news (for the wrong reasons!) in 2013, providing you with some basic insights and tips & tools on how to secure your website
  2. Agility Beyond Campfire Romance, an interesting and somewhat contraversial matter when it comes to how best to manage development projects.

Sign up now and join us on 6th December. If you can not make it to the tech meetings we will have the presentations available for download on our website after the sessions.

es logoCommitment to the community
In one of our recent blog posts we already mentioned that both Trifork & GOTO are committed to working closely with the community. This month we will host the Elasticsearch meet up covering the cool use of the product in the new website for the Rijksmuseum, its going to be a great session so sign up now. Also, if you need a location for your meetup (even in one of our other Trifork offices) then we're happy to help if we can just drop us a note with your request.
