Neal BrooksNeal Brooks

What's this all about?

The time has come... Lendable, is opening its doors to the world.

Do you want to learn about Engineering and Data Science behind a Fintech unicorn? And not just a unicorn, but a profitable one?

Well, we are more than happy to share our secrets with you. Come to our office or join online on September 14, 2021 and see how we've built one of London's most successful startups.

We’ll cover topics such as:

  • Architecture and distributed systems
  • Data science
  • Mobile development
  • Automated testing


Let's address the elephant in the room - why on Earth would Lendable host its own developer conference?

Well, the answer is simple; we're a successful Fintech startup and we have a lot of experienced folks. Our engineers and data scientists have worked across the whole gamut of industries and companies, and they have a lot of knowledge to share.

The initial idea behind the conference was to enable sub-teams within the company to present their work, discuss ideas, talk about problems and solutions, have fun, and get to know each other a bit better.

As we started to plan the nitty-gritty, we soon realised that we had some useful stuff that we could share with the world. On top of that, we thought it would be fun to push the boundaries; to see if we could be pioneers in hosting a conference which could simultaneously host both in-person and remote attendees, and be equally exciting and engaging for everyone.

The outcome of our initial plan: a conference which is both in-person and remote! Are you mad!?

It's going to be interesting to see how it works out!

Who's speaking?

At Lendable we employ a number of industry experts on different subjects. For this first conference we've selected speakers from within our own ranks who will speak about projects they've worked on within Lendable as well as on industry best practices, tech, and new ideas. Perhaps next year we'll see your name on the list too...

What's on the schedule?

The full lineup is still being finalised right now so stay tuned for the full list. There will be talks on data science models, performance improvements, testing, and more!

In the meantime, here are a few choice picks for you to get excited about.

Property based testing - simplify testing of financial calculations

Tests are essentials. But tests for financial calculations are often very brittle and not super readable. Luckly, there's a technique called - 'Property based testing' that can help with that.

Learning on the fly - how a few React Native guys picked up native development

No, we didn't ditch React Native. But we had to dive into native iOS & Android development to build Apple Pay and Google Pay integration.s We're going to share a few stories about picking new technologies on the fly.

Tests make good architects

A well-designed test suite greatly facilitates faster refactoring and cleaner architectures. Sam will show us why testing matters, and how it can improve your team's momentum in the long-run
