Philly ETE 2016 #16 – Alex Miller – Unleash Your Data with Clojure: Using Transducers and Sequences

In this talk we’ll examine Clojure’s approach to data and data transformation, which is built from a foundation of immutable values and persistent collections. Clojure offers several models for transformation of collections – sequences, reducers, and transducers. We’ll compare these to each other and to the status quo to see how the functional approach results in less code, fewer bugs, and greater reuse.

Philly ETE 2016 #13 – Johanna Rothman – Agile Hiring: It’s a Team Sport

You can apply agile approaches to your hiring, iterating on everything. You can get feedback as you go, and involve the entire team, including the sourcing. You can teach your recruiters to use a kanban board to track candidates and where they are in the pipeline. You can iterate on the job description (and job ad) based on what you see in candidates. When you involve the entire team, you can create questions and auditions that work for you. You can identify candidates who fit your culture and those who don’t. This session is a timeboxed interactive workshop. Be prepared to experiment and learn. Let’s make your hiring more agile.
