As companies grow there is often a need to restructure and redesign teams to make sure employees are happy and productive. But what’s the best way to do it? What technologies and tools can we use to help us? And are there any examples we can learn from?

How Monzo uses Go to build a distributed bank.
Irina is a backend engineer at Monzo. She has been in the Ruby / Rails world for over 7 years. Since moving to the UK in 2013 she worked at Freeagent, helping to make “a monolith” scale, and at Makers Academy, teaching the new generation of developers how to write maintainable code. Irina is enthusiastic about overcomplicated text editors from the 70s.
Events are listed newest first so that users don’t have to scroll past events which have already happened.
Please add events in order of their date, with a link to the event page / website etc. using
[event name](url.com), full tweets are ok but lots of expanded pages from event pages make it harder to skim through the list of events.
Details of past events will be deleted from this topic, after a couple of weeks so that users can see what’s happened recently & search for videos, presentation etc. which have been posted as dedicated topics.
If you have any suggestions about how this topic could be managed better, please send me a direct message.
Some events are aimed at signing up new Monzo users but I’ve found the talks at these events interesting (particularly the free form Q&A) & I guess it helps to have a few Monzo users turning up, to rave about the product to someone who’s considering signing up.
If there are any events which Monzo wouldn’t want existing users to attend, I’m assuming that they’ll let us know.
This topic has been closed to prevent users from posting replies (which would stop the thread from being listed as updated, when changes are made to the Wiki) but all users can still edit this Wiki.
