Live Ask Me Anything with Kevlin Henney

Join Us

As part of a collaborative initiative, Trifork and GOTO have organised a series of events with GOTO experts and Trifork Software Engineers & Architects.

Join us in this live Ask Me Anything (AMA) session with Trifork software engineer, Adele Carpenter, hosting GOTO expert Kevlin Henney. During this one hour session, Kevlin will answer as many of your submitted questions as possible around the topics of TDD, agile development, programming languages, programming paradigms, software craft and software architecture!

Please note: we encourage you to submit your questions in the registration form. This way, we can make full use of the hour with Kevlin and ensure as many of your questions as possible get answered! However, there will be the opportunity to ask further questions using the chat function during our live event.

Adele Carpenter

Trifork, Software Engineer & Host

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.

Kevlin is an independent consultant, trainer, reviewer, and writer. His development interests are in programming, people, and practice. He has been a columnist for various magazines and web sites, a contributor to open-source software, and a member of more committees than is probably healthy (it has been said that “a committee is a cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled”).
