What to do when you’ve been hit by a tornado

Thursday 16th May 6:30pm at Chroma Recruitment

Tornadoes are incredibly violent, destructive forces of nature. They are rapid, rotating columns of air that form in a thunderstorm, typically a supercell. What happens when your home is hit by that terrifying vortex of wind? Over the 2023 Christmas period, that’s what happened to me. As I started to work towards fixing my home and returning to normality, I realised that all I was doing was solving a problem, not unlike any other scary problem we face as developers. Through sharing my story I hope to convey a perspective that we can all use when we’re faced with stressful and seemingly complex software problems where success may seem far away and consequences immediately close.


When the talks end, we'll decamp to a local pub for food, drinks and chats with your fellow attendees.

Of course, this is the socialising part and seems more informal. Please remember that it is part of the meeting and covered by our code of conduct.
