The #SDSummit Software Development Summit is an event devoted to the software developer community in Spain, and means to link professionals from different specialities to share know-how and trends through talks and round tables organized by and for developers. The event will be held free, online on 2, 3, 4 and 5 March.
The #SDSummit will feature over 30 speakers, including: Carlos Blé, Director at Lean Mind; Eduardo Ferro, Platform Engineering Manager at Clarity.ai; Vanesa Tejada, Head of Product at LATAM Airlines; Xavier Albaladejo, Agile-Lean Executive Transformation at Voxel; Pedro Santos, founder and CTO at CoKaiDo; Naiara Abaroa, Front-End Designer at TransferWise; Álvaro Salazar, VP of Engineering at Lookiero; and Katia Aresti, Senior Software Engineering at Red Hat EMEA.
An event championed by Voxel’s IT team
The idea of the #SDsummit came about within the micro community of developers at Voxel, the company specializing in the development of digital solutions for the value chain, after a year in which many face-to-face events have had to be cancelled due to health restrictions. As active partners at several developer community events, the Infrastructure, IT and Product teams at Voxel have arranged a series of sessions and round tables that will revolve around Continuous Delivery, Legacy Code, Agile, Technichal Coaching and Software Architecture, among others.
Voxel has carried out an intense organizational transformation process over the last 3 years, through the adoption of agile methodologies, the Scale Up model, and Sociocracy 3.0 patterns, among others, with the guidance of Adrian Perreau and Xavier Albaladejo. Throughout this process, the teams—especially the technical staff—have transformed their internal processes to enhance productivity, development and delivery times, as well as code/product quality and more.
In 2020, Voxel appointed Vicenç García-Altés as VP of Engineering to consolidate this transformation and to carry on improving customer value delivery. In addition to working for our IT professionals to carry out their activity with the greatest freedom and independence possible, one of García-Altés’s main objectives is to make the teams able to deliver value to the client as swiftly as the market requires. To do this, the team is currently focused on Observability, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.
“Organizing the #SDsummit is an opportunity to learn from other developers and also to share our own learning with other professionals. We really want to contribute to the growth of a community from which we have learned a lot and from which we are sure we will continue to do so,” says García-Altés.
Registration for the #SDsummit is now open through the official event website at www.sdsummit.es. The #SDsummit will be broadcast on Zoom and the Voxel YouTube channel.
