ShipItCon 2017 takes place on August the 25th in the Mansion House in Dublin.
ShipItCon is a conference about shipping software safely, and delivering value through rapid feedback cycles. We’ve got speakers from different size companies talking about how they ship their products, and about how they provide customers value through delivering often.
Talks range from technical deep dives to shipping philosophy to QA practices, all with the focus on creating higher value through frequent small deliveries.
This is a non-profit event, organised by volunteers and any remaining funds will be donated to a local charity.
For details of our Keynotes, speakers and other news check us out on Twitter @shipitcon or at http://shipitcon.com/
In addition, the goal is to create a safe, diverse and inclusive environment for all. As well as their Code of Conduct http://shipitcon.com/code-of-conduct/ they are offering a “Diversity and Inclusion” discount. Contact the organisers if you would like to hear more and if you think you might qualify.
If you are from an under-represented group in the tech industry but would love to learn more about shipping code then please join us and help #ChangeTheRatio
