Linguamatics Developer Open Evening (Free Event)

Event

Venue: Cambridge, United Kingdom

Join the Linguamatics Solutions Development team to find out more about the cool technology and approaches we use to create our award winning software.

During the evening there will be pizza, drinks and presentations:

That Critical 3%
Donald Knuth once said: "We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil. Yet we should not pass up our opportunities in that critical 3%." How top-down profiling led us to re-think our distributed stream processing architecture, and other just-in-time optimizations.

Testing installers in Continuous Integration
Traditional CI pipelines run the tests for a project and then build installers if the tests pass. By then testing these installers, we can eliminate any manual smoke-testing before release and get immediate feedback if our installers won't install. This talk explores a testing pattern using Docker to quickly build repeatable states, and how we implement this in Python and integrate it into our Jenkins builds.

Behind the curtain of our Search Engine: a near-instant solution using Elasticsearch and ReactJS
In our award-winning application, iScite, users can create very powerful queries to discover specific documents hidden amongst several millions.  To guide them in their query building process, the application uses a very fast and intuative suggestion engine to propose relevant concepts and queries.  This talk will focus on its two main components: 1) the complex queries to find meaningful suggestions and 2) the UI components used to display and interact with those suggetions.

Team Culture and Careeer Opportunities
A short presentation about working at Linguamatics and the opportunities it offers.
