    • Scaling Collective Code Ownership & Code Reviews at LinkedIn - Nikolai Avteniev
      Scaling Collective Code Ownership & Code Reviews at LinkedIn - Nikolai Avteniev Nikolai Avteniev - Software Engineer, LinkedIn Recorded: Sep 21 2018 3:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • The contemporary code review practice has been adopted by many organizations and open source projects as a quality assurance measure. This process typically involves software tools such as Review Board and the time of one or more peer reviewers.

      However, there is a growing body of empirical research about this broadly‐adopted practice that can help us learn more about the effects of code reviews on software quality. Available research shows that in fact, peer code reviews are better suited for knowledge sharing and code improvements, rather than for eliminating code defects or reducing error rates. The effectiveness of the process seems to depend on the experience of the reviewer with the code, the size of the change set, and the rate at which the review is conducted.

      In this talk, Nikolai will share how the LinkedIn Flagship Product Engineering team leverages the code review process to spread organizational knowledge and uplevel individual contributors. I will also discuss the tools we’ve built to support this practice across a team which spans three offices, four development stacks, dozens of teams, and hundreds of individual contributors.

    • Despite our best intentions, organizational change often leads to disruption. Change can cause confusion, discomfort, and frustration for employees, and can lead to consequences such as drops in engagement, lapses in performance, and regrettable attrition. In a world where change is inevitable, how can organizations overcome disruption and thrive in the face of change?

      In this webinar, Organizational Development expert Craig Ramsay will share a framework that will help your organization more effectively navigate change, whether the change is a merger or acquisition, an internal restructuring, or a leadership change.

      Ben Hatch, Employee Engagement Program Manager at LinkedIn, will join Craig to share his journey of helping LinkedIn preserve its culture and values during a period of significant change and uncertainty: the organization’s acquisition by Microsoft. By listening to employees, communicating effectively, and doubling down on LinkedIn’s unique culture and programs, LinkedIn was able to thrive, coming out quickly on the other side more focused and inclusive than before.

      In this recorded session, you will learn:

      The critical steps to maintaining a positive and productive culture during all types of change.
      How to gather and actually use feedback from employees to ensure they are engaged — making the change a success.
      Key considerations for ensuring a successful transition at the organization-wide and team-wide levels during times of disruptive change.

    • Von LinkedIn lernen: Daten-Streaming mit Apache Kafka®
      Von LinkedIn lernen: Daten-Streaming mit Apache Kafka® Kai Waehner, Technology Evangelist, Confluent Recorded: Apr 11 2018 9:20 am UTC 45 mins
    • Was wären digitale Marktführer wie LinkedIn, UBER, Twitter und andere große Plattformbetreiber ohne Datenverarbeitung in Echtzeit? Sicher nicht so leistungsfähig. Und sie dienen als Vorbild für etablierte Unternehmen, die von Neueinsteigern herausgefordert werden.

      Diese Newcomer denken das Business mit einer skalierbaren, verteilten Systemlandschaft neu.

      Voraussetzung dafür ist eine leistungsfähige Streaming-Plattform, die nicht nur Publish-and-Subscribe, sondern auch die Speicherung und Verarbeitung von Daten innerhalb des Streams ermöglicht.

      Unternehmen aller Branchen sind längst auf Echtzeitdaten angewiesen, um Kundenerlebnisse zu personalisieren oder betrügerisches Verhalten zu erkennen.

      In unserem Webinar, veranstaltet in Zusammenarbeit mit COMPUTERWOCHE, zur Streaming-Plattform Apache Kafka erfahren Sie als IT-Verantwortlicher, Entwickler und/oder Data-Experte u.a.:

      - Wie genau nutzen Unternehmen schon heute Echtzeit-Daten-Streaming?
      - Wie lassen sich mit sogenannten Streaming APIs Entwicklungskosten drastisch reduzieren?
      - Was genau hat LinkedIn eigentlich mit Kafka zu tun – und warum profitieren alle davon?
      - Was ist bei der Kafka-Integration zu beachten?

    • Key Takeaways:

      Wondering why you’re not getting the results you expected from LinkedIn?

      Maybe you should take a closer look at your profile.

      With this tool, you now can engage with your connections, as well as with your connections’ connections (your second-degree network), and even with their connections (your third-degree network).

      But before you can do this, you need to know how to make the most of your LinkedIn account and address:

      -Your Profile
      -Location and Industry
      -Current/Previous Experience
      -Contact Information
      -Endorsements and Recommendations

      Reasons to Attend:

      -Spend the time and go the extra mile to increase the response rate of your leads many times over.
      -Each marketing strategy has a different purpose, to develop a process for your approach.
      -LinkedIn is a great tool to identify and research potential clients and to make the first contact.
      -Mention who you are, why you are reaching out, show what you have to offer
      -Never go for the sale in that first message or invitation since this can put people off.
      -When the potential client turns into a contact, then you can send the “warm” e-mail and talk about how you can help them

      Bottom Line: Identify, Research, and Introduce Yourself.

      Social prospecting and marketing is not a numbers game.

      How Microsoft's Purchase of LinkedIn Will Impact Your Sales & Marketing Strategy Kurt Shaver, Founder, The Sales Foundy Recorded: Jul 6 2016 5:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn for $26.2 billion is one of the largest tech acquisitions in 20 years. The acquisition of the world’s largest social network for business by the world’s largest software company is bound to have far reaching effects for many decades.

A former Silicon Valley software sales executive, Kurt has spent the past five years (10,000 hours) training companies like Hewlett Packard, Ericsson, and CenturyLink on advanced LinkedIn and Social Selling techniques.

      This Executive Education session is designed for Sales and Marketing leaders.

      Attendees will learn:
      · What’s in it for Microsoft?

      · What changes can you expect in LinkedIn?

      · What steps should your company take today to avoid getting left behind?
