Global Day of Code Retreat 2014

Leave a comment

We invite you to the Global Day of Coderetreat in Cluj-Napoca!

Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’, the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time. You can learn more about code retreats here.

Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, over 70 passionate software developers from Cluj-Napoca joined the 2000 developers in 150 cities around the world in spending the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format.

Guest Session – The Essence of DevOps with Richard Campbell

Leave a comment

October 17th, you are invited to a new RABS Guest Session!

Relevant for everybody working in software development from kickoff to delivery.

Extremely relevant, if you have ever experienced the real “tension” of working together.

Abstract:
DevOps is about making software better – by bringing everyone involved in software closer together, including (but not limited to): domain experts, architects, developers, designers, testers, security and operations. This session takes you through the DevOps culture, focusing on people, process and tools (in that order).

You’ll learn how to get the conversation started between the teams, how to bring the teams closer together, and how to ultimately become one team (we’re all in this together)! Understanding DevOps is about focusing on what’s important: building and delivering the best software you can.

Richard Campbell has been involved with microcomputers and software since 1977. His career has spanned the industry both on the hardware and software sides, from manufacturing to sales, service, game development, line-of-business software and large scale systems. Today Richard is on the board of directors for Telerik, a leading vendor of development, team productivity, automated testing tools, UI components and content management solutions in the Microsoft space.

He’s a partner in PWOP Productions, creating a variety of multimedia programs including ‘.NET Rocks!, the Internet Audio Talk Show for .NET Developers‘, a podcast produced twice a week for more than 250,000 listeners in 150 countries. In addition he’s the host of ‘RunAs Radio‘, a podcast for the IT Professional using Microsoft technologies.

In the fall of 2011, he helped launch a third podcast called ‘The Tablet Show‘, focused on the emerging tablet and mobile market. Richard is also a Microsoft Regional Director, MVP and speaks at conferences around the world.

Richard is at his second visit in Cluj, this year, and we challenge you to help us show him that we are a community worth revisiting!

Time & date: October 17th 2013; 18:00-20:30

Place: Hotel City Plaza (Ballroom Conference room)

Fee: 50 RON (25RON for RABS members)

Guest Session – Intelligent Evolution – Part 2: Darwinian Management, with Peter Leeson

Leave a comment

This autumn starts at RABS with Peter Leeson.

On September 24th, we invite you to a public talk and Q&A session titled: “Intelligent Evolution – Part 2: Darwinian Management”.

Title: Intelligent Evolution – Part 2: Darwinian Management

Abstract: Within an organization, the concept of revolution rarely works. The idea of throwing out everything that was done previously and replacing it with some new management theory or work practice does not necessarily lead to the expected results. Instead, it leads to demotivation of the skilled staff and the rapid departure of the most skilled, experienced and valuable staff members.

Progress within an organization needs to be based on the concept of improvement rather than innovation whenever possible, taking the good things, the experience of the successful people, who have been doing their work successfully for many years and using that as a seed for growing the new practices and work environment.

Peter Leeson is an old friend of our association and we are honoured by his openness in response to our invitation to dialogue on the topics above. He has a 40 year long career in software development and is currently a visiting scientist la Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, USA). He is also an internationally recognised speaker, consultant and process appraiser. Presently, he is not only a certified CMMI lead appraiser, but also does quality assurance and development work in improving and rewriting the various courses of the CMMI Institute.

Peter’s name is already familiar for those of us who attended his presentation at ITCamp 2013 and RABS Guest Session in 2012 in Cluj. He promises to deliver his newest thoughts in the same engaging manner we are used to see.

Time & date: September 24th, 2013; 17:30-21:00

Place: Hotel City Plaza, Sindicatelor 9-11, Cluj-Napoca

IT Camp is already a well-known technical event of Cluj-Napoca, being the largest premium conference on Microsoft technologies in Romania, at its 3rd edition. This year, it takes place in 23rd and 24th of May. This edition has three tracks which gather well known Romanian and international speakers. RABS is again represented among the speakers by Sergiu and Florin who talk on the Architecture & Best Practice track. We are also saluting Peter Leeson who is coming again to talk at a tech event in Cluj.

 

I T.A.K.E. Unconference proposes a different format for a technical conference by focusing on code. It is the only technology agnostic conference in Central and Eastern Europe. It takes place in 30 and 31st of May in Bucharest. The program is on five tracks which favors informal talks, debates and live practicing with the speakers and among the participants. This format may prove to be an efficient way to learn useful practices.
