A Branch in Time (a story about revision histories)

Union St, 18-20 Union Street, S1 2JP
6.30 to 8.00pm

He’s worked with teams, large and small: from Government agencies (GDS) to listed startups (FreeAgent), and the world’s oldest and largest Co-operative (Co-op Digital). He also runs the North West Ruby User Group in Manchester, and we had the pleasure to collaborate with them on a number of occasions. Tekin has given this talk at Brighton Ruby, RailsConf and Railsconf Australia, and each time it gets better and better as he is great as incorporating feedback!
