About this Case Study

As software teams in a post-truth world, what are the moral implications of what we do when software doesn’t have to be malicious to be dangerous? None of what we build exists in a vacuum. To make ethical decisions, we must understand the implications of what we’re building. We must be well-informed, aware of the risks, brave, humble, willing to speak up and to listen. Come along and think about the ethical implications of the software we build.

About the Speaker

Jonathan is a software engineer whose interests include mobile apps, engineering for accessibility and the ethical implications of software in society. He lives in London, where he finds himself unusually fascinated and opinionated about street design. In his spare time, he enjoys travel, swimming and photography. He is also a fan of science fiction (reading and writing), and is currently working on his third novel.
