Earlier October in San Francisco, our CTO, Brandon Dewitt, presented at FinDEVr. See the video of his presentation below, let's #GetNerdy:
How You Build Something Is More Important Than What You’re Building
Is your code simple, clean and maintainable? That’s the first question you should be asking rather than focusing on function. Studies have shown that up to 70 % of the cost of software is incurred during maintenance. Readability, or the ease of reading source code, can promote software maintainability and is at the core of MX’s philosophy. In this 20 minute session, Brandon Dewitt, MX’s CTO, is discussing the fundamentals of building technology and how MX is delivering innovation and better code directly into hands of the engineers responsible for technology in their financial institutions.
What You’ll Learn
- Building a maintainable platform
- Why style of code matters
- Facilitating a smooth transition as you onboard new engineers
Brandon Dewitt, CTO of MX, actively contributes to open source projects and has worked in software engineering at Nike, BakerHill, and Experian. He leads the MX engineering team to produce cutting-edge solutions for the fintech industry.
