Kick Start to Adastral Park Developer Meet-UpsJuly 26, 2018
With well over 100 hi tech companies being based at Adastral Park, including BT, there’s a great mutual benefit from informal, but regular meet-up of the developers based at the Park.
The 18th of July saw the first of these meet-ups and was led, on this occasion, by Chris Waters from IM Company Staylists who gave a short talk on a subject close to his heart – Naming Conventions. In his normal relaxed style Chris made sure both developers and non-developers got value from his talk and his thought provoking one liners started a very interactive discussion post talk. An example that gives a taste of the talk was – why use the name ‘ delete ‘ to define data that needs to be completely eliminated – better to use the word ‘ incinerated ‘ – lots of nodding around the table to that one.
It was agreed the meet-up was a success so watch this space for a date and lunchtime location of the next event.
