There’s no doubt we live in an age of large-scale, software-intensive systems that involve complex interactions between humans, machines and the environment.  Sociotechnical thinking that considers the relationship between these systems is on the rise and, more than ever, there is demand in industry for holistic engineering approaches.

Join us for our 16th annual Code Freeze event, as we delve into emerging humane engineering practices by and for people by exploring a range of subjects from human-centered design to collaborative software development. This year’s event features an exciting line up of industry leaders and practitioners offering thought-provoking talks and interactive workshops on topics such as learning models, burnout, fairness in AI, human centered design, and more. Our productive and informative day of workshops and talks will be capped off by live, massively-parallel, facilitated, mob-programming sessions!
