Live Ask Me Anything with Adam Tornhill

Join Us

As part of a collaborative initiative, Trifork and GOTO have organized a series of events with GOTO experts, Trifork Software Engineers & Architects and Tech leaders from the industry.

Join us in this live Ask Me Anything (AMA) session  with Trifork’s Software Engineer, Adele Carpenter, hosting GOTO expert Adam Tornhill. During this one hour session, Adam will answer as many of your submitted questions as possible around the topics of:

  • Prioritizing technical debt
  • Maintainable code
  • Software evolution: how does software evolve?
  • Programming languages, functional programming.
  • Clojure and Lisp.
  • Design patterns (yes, really: very under-utilized ideas)
  • Psychology: how do we solve problems and what does that teach us about how our code should look?
  • Team vs Software Architecture
  • Running a startup as a technical founder.

Please note: We encourage you to submit your questions in the registration form. This way, we can make full use of the hour with Adam and make sure that you will get your answers! However, there will be the opportunity to ask further questions using the chat function during our live event.

About Adele Carpenter

Adele is a Software Engineer at Trifork Amsterdam, where she is working on backend systems for the educational sector. Most of her work day is spent in the JVM/Spring ecosystems. Adele got the coding bug later in life but since then has been making up for lost time, going from command line n00b to employed Software Engineer in just one year. Her experiences both in and out of tech have given her a unique perspective on the art of programming together with humans, which she hopes is useful to other humans who program with humans.
