Toptal Speakers Network Presents: TopTalks

April 27, 2022 at 10 AM | Remote, United States


About the Event

Join us for our next TopTalks event on Wednesday, April 27, at 10:00 AM EST hosted through the Speakers Network program at Toptal! TopTalks are short TED-style talks in under 10-minutes presented by Toptal experts. Each talk showcases a well-formed idea, followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.

Come learn from fellow Toptalers, and if you’re up for it, give your feedback to help them improve! (Note: Rubrics will be provided at the event to all attendees who are open to sharing feedback. Or just come and learn something new!)


Oscar Luiz: Disaster Recovery: Concepts
Do you know how to recover from a disaster? Is it enough to just copy everything from one side to the other and that’s it? Join this talk to learn about disaster recovery concepts, who defines the scope of the plan, consequences of having a plan (and activating it!), rehearsals, and further actions after activation. In short, a high-level approach to instigate your curiosity.

Lev Yastrebov: Enjoy coding even more with automated tests
Sounds surprising, right? Stay tuned; I’ll show you how to perceive and use tests so they can help you be more productive right from the start and even become happier at work.

Inder Ahluwalia: Accelerating Time to Market with the Business Agility Value Stream
Are you still using a traditional, phase-gate development process using the old “Project” metaphor? Waiting for a funding cycle, followed by big-up-front-design, followed by a long development cycle, results in delayed technical and customer feedback. What we need is to understand and adapt to customer needs and quickly deliver a solution, before the window of opportunity closes. For this to happen we need to understand and adopt a “value stream” metaphor, to foster rapid learning and leverage business opportunity before our competitors.
