Event description

Description

This TechLunch will be about Developer Horror Stories. Three different developers will join us on stage and share with us some epic fails that happened to them at one point in their career. Right before going on production or already live to thousands of customers, join us at lunchtime to listen theses horror stories and the lessons learned from them!

Speakers

Breaking indexing for thousands of customers with one bug - Xavier Grand (Software Engineer - Search Engine at Algolia)

I'll explain how I broke completely the indexing of 10 shared clusters in production and how we worked during hours to put the service back on track.


My first steps as a Lead Developer for a high-traffic media website - From white screen of death in production to never ending projects - Laïla Atrmouh (Lead Developer at madmoiZelle)

I'll explain the biggest fails I made while working for madmoiZelle and what I learned from it : I broke completely the website while releasing a new feature and I let my fear block me from releasing of the new redesign.


Deleting a customer's account instead of a feature flag - Pierre-Baptiste Béchu (Co-founder and Software Engineer at Aircall)

3 years ago, we deleted the account of our biggest customer from the main database during the night. Lot of data were in the process of being deleted BUT we saw it early and it took us few hours to retrieve and put back all data of this customer into the database. Morning arrived and hopefully there wasn't impact for the customer but it was one of the worst moment we lived as developers.


We will have three talks of 15mn each (with a 5mn break for questions in between), followed by a more casual networking time.

Note that this event is scheduled during lunch. We will have food for all the registered persons, but try not to be late so we do not waste.

Talks will be in English, recorded and published on YouTube afterwards.

By attending this event, you consent to photography, audio recording, video recording and its/their release, as the event will be filmed.
