Hudson's Bay Company at QCon

HBC Tech conferences

Heading to QCon? Don’t miss these two sessions! If you can’t make it, stay tuned here for slides and recordings from the conference.

Removing Friction In the Developer Experience

If you follow this blog at all, you know that we talk a lot about how we work here. Whether it’s out approach to adopting new technology, the work of our POps team or our team ingredients framework, we’re not shy when it comes to our people and culture.

With that in mind, it only makes sense that Ade Trenaman, SVP Engineering at Hudson’s Bay Company, will be part of the Developer Experience track at QCon New York in June. Titled “Removing Friction In the Developer Experience”, Ade will highlight a number of the steps we’ve taken as an organisation to improve how we work. His session will cover:

  • how we blend microservice / serverless architectures, continuous deployment, and cloud technology to make it easy to push code swiftly, safely and frequently and operate it reliably in production.
  • the organisational tools like team self-selection, team ingredients (see above), voluntary adoption and internal startups that allow us to decentralise and decouple high-performing teams.

Survival of the Fittest - Streaming Architectures

Michael Hansen will also be at QCon this year. Mike’s talk will help guide the audience through a process to adopt the best streaming model for their needs (because there is no perfect solution).

In his own words: “Frameworks come and go, ​so this talk is not about the “best” framework or platform to use, rather it’s about core principles that will stand the tests of streaming evolution.”

His talk will also cover:

  • major potential pitfalls that you may stumble over on your path to streaming and how to avoid them
  • the next evolutionary step in streaming at Hudson’s Bay Company

Hope to see you there!
