Software in the City: the real story

Burkhard Kloss (@georgebernhard)

The news is full of tales of trillions of derivatives being traded in global financial centres. This talk will give an insight - with thinly veiled anecdotes, and possibly some humour - of how the software behind these trades really gets developed, and what it's like to be in the thick of it.

Burkhard has been writing Software in the City of London for longer than he cares to mention these days. Starting in C++, but occasionally venturing into Python, Java, .Net and sometimes VBA (but we don't talk about that), he has seen the good, the bad, and a lot of the ugly side of what really happens in "The City".

CoffeeScript is for... 

Anders Fisher (@atleastimtrying)

Anders Fisher will be giving an in depth look at the pros and cons of coffeescript as a compiled language as well as some of its advantages in encouraging good practices in JS development and encouraging different approaches. He will also be going into some of the diverse projects he has used coffeescript for including mobile development. If it sounds a bit much remember, it's just Javascript with a fancy hat on!

Anders Fisher is a seasoned front end developer working daily with a variety of clients helping to implement a variety of approaches to front end development.
