Confirmed keynote

As we announced in May, we already have confirmed one of the keynote speakers for 2015. Simon Brown is a renowned architect and trainer on agile architecture and author of Software Architecture for Developers. With a schedule as busy as his, we’re sure glad it matched our dates for next year’s I T.A.K.E Unconference.

Call for speakers open

We have opened the call for speakers. For next year we decided to keep the topics that you hold dear: architecture, design principles, TDD etc. and also add some new areas that are becoming more and more popular these days: mobile, big data, scaling architecture etc. Visit the page to learn more.

If you know somebody that has something valuable to share with our audience, we’d appreciate it if you shared the link for the call page.

New website

We hope you enjoy the new website we’ve created. Based on your feedback during the past two years, we decided to come up with a new design that is accessible on all mobile devices. We’d like to thank our partners at Gorilla Studio for their effort and creativity with the new design.

We’re really excited for next year’s edition! So far things look great and we are committed to delivering the best edition yet to all our attendees. See you there?

The Pyramid of Programming Skillsets with Alex Bolboaca

Nov 26, 2014

Unit testing, code review, TDD, BDD, refactoring, legacy code techniques, pair programming, continuous integration, architecture styles … So many things to learn and so little time.

In his talk at I TAKE Unconference 2014, Alexandru Bolboaca described a model that allows a programmer to organize these practices in an order that is most helpful for her career. At the same time, it allows a CTO or technical manager to roughly evaluate the teams he’s leading and figure out the next steps in their development.

Enjoy his talk @ I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2014 edition.
