Intro to Agile: A day in the life

February 11 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

THE DISCUSSION:
What does a “typical” day for a software engineer look like? To find out, we’re going to spend a day with one (compressed into 45 minutes). You may be surprised at how little time is spent alone in front of a keyboard and screenful of code.
As the day progresses, we’ll meet a product owner, a designer, a customer service rep, and others, to get a hint of what their days are like too.
This “typical” day is a mash-up of real events that Patrick experienced as a software engineer at a handful of different companies over the years.

AGENDA:
11:30 – 12:15: A day in the life
12:15 – 12:30: Q&A

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Patrick is a Charlotte native (South Meck / Providence). As the only kid in the neighborhood whose family owned a computer but not a Ninendo, he taught himself how to code so he could make his own games. That was three decades ago and he’s been hooked ever since. He’s spent most of his career as a software developer / engineer / architect interspersed by brief stints as a scrum master, product owner, and people manager, specializing in front end web development. He’s had the opportunity to work in companies ranging from 5 to 200,000 employees and everywhere in between. His current role is a Web Front End Architect at Walgreens where he’s helping with an initiative that will serve communities better by adding Health Corners to the stores. With six kids aged 10 – 20 he and his wife Jaclyn are never, ever bored.

COLLABORATION:
Queen City Bytes is partnering with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library to help our audience identify career paths they may wish to pursue in the technology space.
