Concept

Conferences are big, meet-ups are free. Both are great in their own way! With Advanced Software Masterind, we’re taking a different, holistic approach.

During the 2 days of mastermind, participants dive into deep conversation on modern, advanced architecture and methods, from Domain-Driven Design to Microservices, The Actor Model to Event Storming, and much, much more.

The sessions are curated, coordinated and planned in the schedule in such a way that they weave into each other and progress over the course of the mastermind. All our speakers participate in every session, which brings a continuous flow to the entire event.

The speakers at this mastermind have many years of experience in software development, and they have a long history of sharing their knowledge to fellow colleagues in the industry. One has written several books, others have created meet-up groups or hosted events.

Before attendees arrive they receive a hand-out. The intent of this hand-out is to give the attendees relevant background before the mastermind. This allows us to discuss the topics on a deeper level. It also includes select diagrams and slides from the sessions to provide context.

On the mastermind attendees will meet other talented professionals. During the evening of the first day, we will spend some social time together, having a drink and sharing stories from the trenches. Networking is built into the schedule for you to get the most out of this event, during and, most importantly, after.

In addition, when the mastermind is over, you will receive the list of participants so that you can you can keep in touch with your new connections.

The value for you and your company

At Advanced Software Mastermind you will learn strategies that will change and significantly enhance the way you create software. We balance the content of the Mastermind with a combination of concepts and code, not just one or the other.

The change you will be able to bring to your company and customers will be invaluable. Here are some examples:

  • Minimize the gap between “the business” and “development”
    With Domain-Driven Design you will be able to create a shared understanding and terminology about the business.
    • Concepts from the business will be carried into design and implementation.
    • Gone are the frustrating days with a huge disparity in the business definition of a concept (an object, a behavior, an important business rule) and how it is implemented in code.
    • Add agility to progress, as huge conceptual models are be divided into smaller separate contexts, that have their own lifecycle.
  • Unify the separate goals of the organization
    A business inherently wants to seize opportunities and have the freedom to conduct rapid experiments to gain new customers and retain loyalty from existing customers. A business will rightfully want to maximize profits. Developers and other technologists, on the other hand, inherently strive for predictability to guarantee stability. This causes constant friction and the business suffers. Through the use of Event-Driven Architecture you will be able to create a middle way that satisfies the needs of all parties.
  • Add resiliency to the business
    It is widely accepted in technology-enabled businesses that if a request fails or a services goes down the business will lose money. By adopting a microservices architecture and persistent messaging, your essential business systems can become more resilient.

In essence, we aim to bring you knowledge that will improve culture, processes and technology in your company.

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

The Longer Version

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination, related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. 

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
