Wednesday September 13, 1:30PM in K17 Seminar Room

Software is changing the world, and Atlassian is at the center of it all. With more than 65,000 global customers (including 85 of the Fortune 100) and a highly disruptive business model, we’re advancing the art of team collaboration with products like JIRA, Confluence, BitBucket and HipChat - and we’re just getting started. Motivated by honest values, an amazing culture, and consistent revenue growth, we’re out to unleash the potential of every team. From Amsterdam and Austin to Sydney and San Francisco, we’re looking for people who are powered by passion and eager to do the best work of their lives in a highly autonomous yet collaborative, no B.S. environment.

Atlassian will be attending our weekly CSESoc BBQ and afterwards, recent graduate, Joshua Carolan, will be giving an introduction to Android application architecture and the best practices when designing an app.

So come to the K17 Seminar Room at 1:30PM to score some sweet Atlassian swag and get some tips on building that next big app!

Optiver presents: FinTech and the Need for Speed

Wednesday September 6, 1:30PM in Ainsworth Level 5 Design Studio

Optiver relies on the latest technology, and skilled technologists, to out-race our competitors to opportunities. But what do we actually need the speed for? This talk goes "under the hood" on how market makers operate, and will teach you how one basic trading strategy relies on ultra-fast execution to achieve success. We'll take a look at one of Optiver's recent projects with one of our FPGA engineers to see how it streamlines information flow, speeds up execution, and increases market success. We hope you'll walk away from this talk with a better idea of what Optiver does, and how the latest technology impacts our business.

Pizza, Networking, and Web Engineering 101 with Freelancer

Thursday August 24, 2.00PM in K17 Seminar Room

Web Engineering 101: Building software for 25 million global users There's this new thing called the internet. Freelancer's marketplace on it connects millions of employers to freelancers across the globe, and every day thousands of jobs are described, bid on, negotiated, and managed through the site.

A site like this with a high number of concurrent users poses many engineering challenges, and it is down to the engineers to build the systems and software that scale for this purpose.

In this talk, you will hear how Freelancer engineers face these problems from a few different perspectives, wrapped up in an overview of scalable web engineering.

Bring yourselves and love of the web! <3
