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.

James Lewis, keynote at I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2015, has a valuable contribution on Microservices Architecture.

Sneak peak:

In short, the microservice architectural style [1] is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an HTTP resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies.

If interested in this topic, read the full contribution, jointly created with Martin Fowler.

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

  • I got the chance to work with technology from a very early age (think ZX Spectrum, Intel 8088) and also with assembly language. This taught me to appreciate constraints and never ignore optimization or be lazy.
  • Discovering OSS via the Allegro game library lead me to a wealth of code to analyze and learn from.
  • Getting a job in the IT department at the university while being a student there leading to four years of experimenting with whatever I wanted to.
  • Teaching at the same university.
  • Getting involved in the Drupal community, taking part in the creation of Romanian branch, organizing various camps and teaching Drupal.

 

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

How to simplify your development workflow.

 

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

  • I am a very bad theremin player. The theremin was the first electronic instrument ever invented and you play it by not touching it. Check it out, it’s pretty cool.
  • I am passionate about synthesizers, old hardware and horror movies.
  • I am an amateur musician using Gameboys, Commodore 64 sound chips and other retro things. I once played music in the Gara de Nord railway, at the info panel.
  • I like to ride statues (usually of pigs) while pretending to be Bastian from the Neverending Story.
