LWP June: Scaling repos and your organisation

The Financial Times at Bracken House

Join us in June for an evening of talks on the theme of scaling up. We have Adam Braimbridge from the FT’s technology team explaining how they maintain control and effective management of 1000s of repos. And Edd Read, a co-founder of Graze and childcare start-up Tiney, will talk about the way starting a tech business has changed over time and how that helps us scale organisations with fewer risks and less investment.

Drinks and food will be provided. We’re grateful to the Financial Times for hosting us in their brand new Bracken House offices this month. Because our venue this month is a newly refurbished building, we are still working out the details of how we can best run LWP in this space. As a result, food and drink options may be different to our usual options, and childcare will be provided off-site (but close by!)
