This month we welcome a speaker whom some of you may recognise since he used to run PHP Sussex – Simon Downes. Simon is now a Senior Platform Engineer at Motorway and co-organiser of Brighton Cloud, a local meetup for cloud professionals.
Simon has over two decades of experience in software development, spanning multiple languages, paradigms and roles, so he has a lot of experience to share about levelling up as a developer, which is the topic of his talk (details further down).
This event will be hybrid, meaning you can either join in person or online (please register for the meetup either way!):
The in-person event will take place at Pizza Pilgrims in Brighton from 6 pm. There will be food and drinks and you’re welcome to come have a chat before the talk starts (around 6:30 pm).
Online participants can join the live stream from 6:30 pm.
This is how Simon introduces his talk:
“From hobbyist to Senior Developer and beyond; in this talk we’ll be taking a look at how levels can be defined and how you can progress your career through those levels. We’ll be talking about both the technical and soft skills you’ll need, as well as how to obtain them.”
Hope to see you there and then!
