Online 7th edition of I TAKE Unconference

Mar 11, 2020 by Magda Zucker in  Announcements

Bringing good news for the tech community: the I T.A.K.E. Unconference comes back with the 7th edition on the 7th of April 2020.

With so many events canceled this Spring, we’ve decided the time came to innovate and change the format once more in order to answer to today’s needs and challenges.

As firm believers in continuous improvement, we plan to overcome the barriers that might restrict learning in this period. How we plan to do that? By going online and bringing you international speakers and top-notch practitioners in the comfort of your own office or home.

How is the 7th edition of I TAKE Unconference special?

  • Focus is placed upon new innovative approaches to modular architecture
  • Brings together international speakers and top-notch professionals from Europe, the USA and all over the world
  • The sessions include practical examples with the latest techniques applied in various environments, programming languages & technologies
  • Fast-paced, dynamic learning atmosphere
  • Overcoming travel challenges of this Spring

We invite you to discover more on Modular Architecture in the Age of Cloud Computing – this edition’s topic.

Want to be part of this not-to-miss event? You are welcome to join our group of supporters and partners and bring innovation one step further. Just let us know and we can make it happen.

Let’s continue sharing knowledge by preserving the feeling of a community of peers who learn together.

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.

#1. Share with us 5 things from your experience that helped you grow & become the professional you are today

  • having a mentor who supports you is great and helps you to challenge your ideas and decisions
  • being curious helps you to continuously learn new things
  • teaching others helps you to get better on the topic and you learn how to explain things to others
  • meeting continuously new people to create new ideas and get inspiration
  • having enough rest so that your brain has time for recreation

#2. What challenges will the participants find solutions to during your session at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2017?

[ctt template=”12″ link=”A831F” via=”no” ]With Impact Mapping you will learn an excellent strategic planning technique that helps you to look at your challenges from different angles[/ctt]
If someone wants to have something solved, he often has already a concrete idea in mind and tells you how to implement it.
With changing the focus and looking at the Why, Who, How and the What your final solution might be entirely different compared to the initial suggestion. You will realize that you can use this technique for nearly everything.

#3. Recommend for the participants 3 sources you find inspiration from and would help them better understand you

  • Learn from and with others, by getting involved in local / international practitioners communities. For example,  we run in Zurich a monthly Software Craftsmanship Meetup with very diverse topics
  • Attend conferences to get inspired by the talks and workshops, as well as the discussions with participants and other speakers.
  • Take time for yourself, relax, free your mind and new ideas and thoughts will pop up automatically!

Enjoy the following series of interviews with the speakers, top-notch software crafters from across Europe, joining  I T.A.K.E Unconference, Bucharest, 11-12 May. Discover the lessons learned and what drives them to challenge the known path in their field.

#1. Please share with us 5 things you did that helped you grow & become the professional you are today

1. The biggest thing I did that changed me was a Journeyman Tour. For three months I visited different companies in Vienna and paired with their developers. See here for more information. (Three Month Journeyman Tour)
2. This included a lot of pair programming with strangers. I like pair programming and make use of it to learn from others. (Pair Programming)
3. I did (and still do) a lot of Code Katas to practice and experiment with code, patterns, and design. (Code Katas)
4. Try to continuously improve.
5. Read technical books.

 

#2. What challenges will the participants find solutions to during your session at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2017?


Yes, my session, the Brutal Coding Constraints, is a real challenge. It challenges our perception of Object Orientation and aims to deepen our understanding.

 

#3. Recommend for the participants 3 sources you find inspiration from and would help them better understand you 


* Michael Feathers – The Deep Synergy Between Testability and Good Design
