“How and Why to Design your Teams for Modern Software Systems”
For effective, modern, cloud-connected software systems we need to organise our teams in certain ways. Taking account of Conway’s Law, we look to match the team structures to the required software architecture, enabling or restricting communication and collaboration for the best outcomes.
This talk will cover the basics of organisation design, exploring a selection of key team topologies and how and when to use them in order to make the development and operation of your software systems as effective as possible. The talk is based on experience helping companies around the world with the design of their teams.

“A recipe for homemade automated deployment”
I will show how we can create a .net Core API and host it in a small NAS with a very small footprint.
Using PowerShell we will view how we can build the application, publish it, create a Docker image and eventually deploy it to a QNAP Container Station.
Even if this is a simple homemade project, I aim to show how quickly and easily we can automate a process that would have taken time to do manually.
Look forward to seeing you all, old faces and new!

Introducing ID London
What are we all about? Well it’s very simple really.
Back in 2013, Adam Bolton realised that there was a big influx of people coming to the UK from Italy to seek roles within the software development community. He met up with an Italian developer that he had worked with in the last few years and told him of the idea for an ‘Italian Developers in London’ group to help people to settle in London and see if there was anything he could do to help them to find a job as his day job is recruiting top tech talent for some of the most exciting companies in the London tech scene.
From the success of these early meetups Adam was approached to start further groups for Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, French & South African developers, all of which grew exponentially over a period of 18-24 months. There was a conference in 2015 too! With the interest in the community driven talks about development the decision was made in early 2016 to combine all of the groups into ‘IDinLondon’ enabling people from all backgrounds to come along, network and learn. All for free!
We’ve helped hundreds settle here in London.
- I met Adam earlier this year when I came to London (from Brazil) and was looking for a new position. He really helped me to understand the London market, as well as some tips on my CV and interviewing techniques. I was scared about the interview process here in London! Adam's help was fundamental for me to understand the local market and I am so grateful to him. He works really hard not only on recruitment, but also on our language specific community - thanks Adam!Rodrigo Laranjo
- As organizer of the Italian Developers in London's Meetup, Adam is doing an incredible job. He can arrange either informal or technical events in a very friendly and stimulating environment. I think he is helping a lot of people in putting them together and allows them to share experiences.Mattia Richetto
