Our next unique Ingenia live! event will look at the pioneering techniques being currently used by the top companies. 

For organisations like Facebook, high quality software is important. Available tools are often lacking in helping programmers develop more reliable and secure applications. 

As the world transitions to storing information in digital form and building devices that can be digitally controlled, there is an increasing desire to write programs that automate repetitive tasks. Unfortunately, much of the population are not programmers!

Dr Scott Steedman CBE FREng, Editor-in-Chief of Ingenia magazine
6.35pm Reasoning with 'Big Code'
Professor Dino Distefano, Co-Founder and CEO, Monoidics and Software Engineer for Facebook
Dino will relay some of the experiences of deploying a static analyser to verify code that uses logical reasoning and yet works at a velocity consistent with Facebook’s fast-paced engineering culture.
6.50pm Going Beyond Sci-Fi
Dr Marily Nika
, Engineering Program Manager, Google
Marily will focus on the impact technology is having on our lives, how it will affect the future and that science fiction has in fact become a reality!
