Panel Discussion - Technical Leadership

16:20/17:00

In this panel, we will get unique insights into the minds of tech leads, how do they set an example for hundreds of developers, and make choices that shape the whole organization. Many questions will be there: How do you manage and empower your team? How do you evaluate whether you are doing a good job? Should a tech lead still write code? Curious about how do they do it? Join tech leads from Picnic, DAZN, and unu to join a panel discussion and share their experiences. Of course, they will answer your questions too... so, just come by!

Level: Non technical / For everyone

Thiago de Faria

Head of Solutions Engineering - LINKIT

Thiago started in Pure Mathematics, jumped to predicting things and realized it was utterly dependent on understanding the inner bits of software development and data pipelines. Thus, his primary concern changed: how to bridge the gap between ML and production? :-) DataOps FTW! He is an active part of the community (devopsdays Amsterdam, ITNEXT & Codemotion), a knowledge-sharer, a proud father and a DataOps Lead. Thiago is pathologically curious and a continuous learner. He knows that high-performing data teams must decrease time-to-market and build production-ready applications, always!
