Started 3 years ago, as an out of office social and tech event for Endavans, Connect.IT has grown to encompass a community of almost 700 tech specialists.
Every few months, they get together in an informal settings to hold subject matter presentations, propose solutions to technical challenges and exchange ideas. So far, we’ve held about 15 meet-ups around topics like clean code, continuous delivery, Scala, mobile practices, and even smart home technologies. The diversity in ideas and approaches is ensured by the variety of speakers, coming from different companies and backgrounds.
One of the most popular editions tackled the topic of Agile and Scrum practices and brought together more than 100 participants. Hot topics like Driving out Waste in Scrum or Early Signs of Scrum Team Fiasco, raised a lot of discussions and debates that created a perfect environment for knowledge and experience sharing.
Endava is committed to invest further in this initiative and we plan to have regular events, covering topics around applications management, digital services, frontend development, security and more.
“…Connect.IT meetup series is the platform that gathers like-minded professionals who want to spend quality time together in an informal setting and find the latest news on ground-breaking tech, and to forge long lasting relationships.
