Learning to build better software, together

The Engineering track at Turing Fest brings together engineers and designers, with experience at all levels of the stack and with a wide range of technologies, to talk about the craft of software development.

Last year, we brought together developers and technical leaders from places like Heroku, GitHub and the Government Digital Service, to discuss everything from componentisation and microservices, to effective collaboration in open source software and on distributed teams, to the technical and ethical challenges facing developers in the age of ubiquitous AI.

This year, we're doubling down on that format: rather than focusing on a particular technology or discipline, we're inviting speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds to share what they've learned on their journeys.

Diverse topics, with a practical focus

We curate sessions with an emphasis on giving you practical insight that helps you build better software. Interesting is good — but interesting and useful is better.

The best in tech, from around the world

We bring smart people from all over the world to Edinburgh — because it's not only in Silicon Valley that people are solving hard problems with technology.

Learn, share and connect with your peers

From freelancers to startups to financial services to government, you'll be hanging out and learning with developers from all a wide range of backgrounds.
