Ansible, AWS & Elasticsearch

Apr 15, 2016 by Madalina Botez in  Announcements

Enjoy the following series of interviews with the speakers, top-notch software crafters from across Europe, joining  I T.A.K.E Unconference, Bucharest, 19-20 May. Discover the lessons learned and what drives them to challenge the known path in their field. 

In today’s news is Phillipp Krenn, developer advocate @Elastic, who spreads the love and knowledge of full-text search, analytics, and real-time data. During his sessions, the attendees will cover the basics of Ansible by setting up a local environment in Vagrant and explore how Elasticsearch stores and interacts with JSON documents.

#1. SHARE TOP 5 THINGS YOU DID THAT HELPED YOU GROW & BECOME THE PROFESSIONAL YOU ARE TODAY

  • Never stop learning: Keep up to date & don’t ignore either tried and tested solutions of the past
  • Participate at local events to learn and get to know other people in your field — meetup.com is a great starting point
  • Build stuff: Find interesting problems to apply and extend your skills
  • Attend at least 1 conference per year to broaden your horizon
  • Your dream job or project is just one interview away; there are way more opportunities than you would think at first, just give it a try

 

#2. What challenges will the participants find solutions to during your sessions @ I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016?

In my Ansible & AWS workshop we will learn how to automate your infrastructure, so you have a reproducible and documented system.
In the Elasticsearch talk we will try to overcome the object-relational impedence mismatch and make developmemt more productive and fun.

 

#3. What else would you like to share with participants?

The best place to learn more about my experience or ask any question is definitely Twitter – @xeraa

Code and win a cool gadget: Programming Contest

May 16, 2016

I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016 is right ahead of us: almost 300 software crafters from Europe will challenge, change & improve the world of software craftsmanship.

This year edition offers the convergence of a technical-centric event combined with an audience of international top-notch participants, networking opportunities & a space where new ideas spark.

Are you up to a challenge?

But wait…this is not all. We’ve prepared for you a set of challenges that will put your coding skills to test. Join the programming contest, show your coding skills in a competition with software crafters across Europe & get the chance to win one of the cool prizes we have prepared: a Samsung Galaxy S7 (offered by Mozaic Works) or a Samsung Gear Smartwatch (offered by MozaicLabs).

HOW THE PROGRAMMING CONTEST WORKS?

Well, this is simple. We try to automate the process as much as possible. For the moment the instructions are as simple as:
  • Register for THE contest on May 19 (the link to register will be communicated in the morning of 19th May)
  • Solve the challenges
  • Submit the solutions until May 20, 2 pm
Really cool: you can use ANY of the following programming languages: Java, C#, PHP, C++.

WHO WILL REVIEW YOUR CODE?

The Jury is built of Software Craftsman Fellows from Europe – names soon to be announced. They will grade each challenge you took. There will be just a few challenges, and taking all of them may lead you to the highest score. So the more you solve the closer to win.
Don’t miss the Programming Contest as well as many other hands-on sessions at I T.A.K.E. Unconference, 19-20 May, Bucharest.

Do. Or do not. There is no try: Be a speaker at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016!

We are proud to announce that in May, 2016, in Bucharest, we will host the 4th I T.A.K.E Unconference, bringing together 300 top-notch programmers, software craftsmen, architects, DevOps, technical managers, team leaders, startup CEOs, CTOs, technical consultants, and business analysts from more than 10 European countries.

James Shore is our first confirmed keynote speaker for this edition.

Each year, we strive to raise the standards for our participants. We are looking forward to offer them practical, hands-on sessions like workshops, smart talks, and best quality presentations. Side events, like Kata Lounge or programming contest, and networking opportunities will be included in the schedule, so get ready for one of a kind event!

As always, an invaluable role will have our speakers. Each of them brings personal experience and amazing insights, making the unconference the best place for finding inspiration and ideas for your work.

At this moment, we have just launched our call for speakers and we are looking forward to receive your submission!

If you want to make an outstanding contribution at one of the regional most vibrant events, get your proposal ready and submit it here.

We value practical, hands-on sessions, strong case studies, and personal experiences, delivered in an attractive manner. Our event is technology agnostic, so us, and the participants, expect a session that will apply to more technology stacks. No, talking only about Java or C# won’t go the finals!

While you prepare for taking the stage, take a look at what speakers and participants said about their experience:

 

Last week I had the chance to attend both as a speaker and an attendee my first un-conference (…). The overall agenda and the way the event is structured is very intelligent and it makes people communicate more and exchange ideas in various ways. (Patroklos Papapetrou, Speaker 2015, full blog post here)

The speakers proved to have deep understanding of the topics, and the information was clearly presented in easy-to-read slides. Nice job! (Adriana, participant 2015)

Open Space – very interesting. It’s like a round table. Everyone has the chance to say what he/she wants. Short sessions (as these: 35’, 40’) – OK. (Participant, 2015)

 

You can find all the details about the call here, and make sure to submit your ideas here by December 22nd.
