Title: Making better technology decisions
Facing the interminable news feed.
We face a constant barrage of new ideas that promise to help us do our job better, but it can be easy to get overwhelmed or even misled by the news cycle. In this talk Divan will try to point out some of the traps one may fall into and how to come to less biased conclusions about our technology choices.
All in 5 minutes!

Title: "Agile Database Techniques – Refactoring to keep your database current"
Do you have dark places in your database where only the knowledgeable few fear to tread?
Shouldn’t you try to change this?
Treating your database as code and refactoring it as your software evolves is a good first step.
Join Chris for an introduction in Agile Database Techniques, looking at tools and techniques which can be used to manage your database in an Agile fashion, so that your database evolves as your software changes.
