Our workshops take place the day before the conference at Avonmouth House (see map), which is a different venue to the conference itself. Each is a full day – 8:30 to 17:00.
Please bring your own laptop if you’ll require one, and note that workshop and conference tickets are sold separately.
People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.
No prior experience leading, managing or developing people is required, but those who are going to get to use such skills in the near future will probably get the most out of this workshop.
No laptop needed.

In this workshop Russ Miles will demonstrate and implement the DDD patterns that are applicable to building great microservice-based systems. Pulling from Simplicity Itself’s years of experience building this style of systems, this workshop will share the deep technical skills that help make your microservices adoption a success.
Code examples and exercises will be written in Java, so previous experience with Java is recommended although not mandated as many of the key takeaways will be applicable regardless of your choice of language, framework or platform.
The course will be 50% theory, 50% labs to explore the different concepts being discussed.
Russ Miles, when he’s not trying to achieve the wealth and, more importantly, the stable of motorbikes and cars of Tony Stark, is Chief Scientist and a founder of Simplicity Itself.
His job is to help Simplicity’s enterprise clients adopt and get the benefits of microservices, period.
He travels the world on this mission and, frankly, loves his job for it.
