Crack the motivation code! at the nor(DEV):con 2019 Thursday Workshops!


Join one of our interactive workshops at nor(DEV):con 2019 on Thursday 21st of February from 9am, Get your tickets here: http://nordevcon-2019.eventbrite.com

Crack the motivation code! - Cassandra Andrews

Imagine if you knew precisely what motivated each member of your team, how motivated they were and what you could do to improve their motivation!
Cassandra Andrews interactive workshop focuses on motivation in the workplace and introduces ‘motivational maps’, an incredibly accurate and user-friendly tool which enables us to unlock and measure employee motivation.

Understanding exactly what motivates individuals in an organisation can be used with significant impact to support business growth and profitability by maximising employee and team motivation, retain employees and recruit the right people to complement existing teams.

At the workshop you will discover how to create high performing teams by learning:

  • What motivation is, how it can be measured and how it impacts the workforce.
  • About the nine motivators identified in motivational maps.
  • How to increase team performance by identifying conflicts in motivation.

To enable all delegates to get their own ‘wow’ moment from the session, when you register for this event you will receive a complimentary motivational map (worth £150) for completion prior to the event.


Day of Deliberate Practice - Jon Jagger.

During the session we will discuss and practice software craftsmanship, communication and creativity, focusing on TDD, pair programming, trying out new things and revisiting old ones. Deliberate practice involves careful repetition and reflection to master, explore and understand a technique, to know its boundaries, to make it second nature.

  • Hands on workshops & lectures
  • Shared Learning Environment
  • Effective coding habits
  • Collaborative Development

If you code every day, keep in mind that a change is as good as a rest — yes, there will be coding, but it’s not your workaday coding. We will be using cyber-dojo, an innovative, collaborative, open source environment. We are going to have fun — join us!

  • Test Driven Development – TDD
  • Pair & Mob Programming
  • Cyber-dojo

With time to look at different code, and code differently, this session will open your mind to different ways of doing things and new ways of approaching old problems with great rewards. Using Jon Jagger’s innovative cyber-dojo environment, you will get to re-examine coding habits and debate modern practices with experts and peers.

This session is open to individuals and teams of all abilities, the only pre-requisite is some experience of software development and a desire to learn:

  • All programmers who want to step back and examine how they can be better
  • Junior programmers who are looking to master their craft
  • Experienced developers who want to reflect on their own practices and hone their skills

Bring a laptop – wifi and access to http://cyber-dojo.org/ required.


Real time analysis of streaming data with Hadoop and Druid - Tom Barber

In this workshop we will build and deploy a Hadoop cluster along with Apache Druid which is an analytical database designed for high volume time series data. We will then work with the attendees to stream data into Druid, process that data and return it for real time analysis. This type of workflow is useful for log file analysis, intrusion detection, sensor analysis or similar and very relevant to businesses of today. All of the software used is open source and free to deploy, attendees will leave with a high level understanding of the various technologies used and a framework that can be deployed quickly and easily in the real world.

Level: Intermediate
