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

 

It all started when I was posting answers for the Stackoverflow community and the reputation started to grow over 100k. I realized that being a professional is a constant effort and never ending learning of new cool stuff. To be up to speed you need to constantly shift to emerging technologies. You see the merit when your answer voted and uncounted millions of people also learn.
We need to be open-minded and have a mentor around us to grow. As you might not have a mentor close to you in person, you can leverage online communities such as Stackoverflow, a community that helps you grow. It helped me.
Then when you take it offline and be supportive & active in local communities, participate in Startup Weekends, community projects you believe in – you will be able to work on fun stuff. Also being part of an IT company such as REEA, it helped me become a professional by all the great startup projects I had to work on, the colleagues, the clients, and also the conference participations.
In 2016, I was nominated and accepted into the Google Developers Experts program. Having my exemplary work recognized by the greatest company in the IT industry and pointing me as an expert and outstanding professional, it gives me new goals to achieve even more.

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

Nowadays there are dozens of options to choose how you architect your project for next level of data analytics. We will cover how Google BigQuery helps to solve the petabyte scale data warehousing, and ability to write complex queries for your dashboards.

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

My inspiration inbox is Feedly, there I consume all sorts of content I really enjoy reading: High Scalability, Percona Blogs, Codrops, Medium, SIMB.

Show your coding skills while competing with peers like you

May 14, 2015
Do you know how to test systems? Can you point coding issues? Are you open to learning from other people? And, best of all, can you safely clean up existing code and improve its design? These are all core developer skills nowadays, and you’ll greatly benefit from mastering them. Here’s just one more opportunity to do so during I T.A.K.E. Unconference – The Programming Contest. We think you’re going to enjoy it.

 

Take a set of challenges that will put your skills to the test, overcome them and get the most points to win the contest. Oh, we almost forgot: those getting the most points win gadgets like a drone or an iPad. They are still small rewards compared to the learning, but we’re sure they help :).

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 28
  • Solve the challenges
  • Submit the solutions until May 29, 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.

Compete with passionate coders at I T.A.K.E. Unconference

Join the crew, compete with developers like you, gain recognition and take the drone home, offered by Mozaic Works. Or the iPad offered by Accenture.
Don’t miss the Programming Contest as well as many other hands-on sessions at I T.A.K.E. Unconference happening in Bucharest on 28-29 May 2015.

Docker & Zero Downtime Deployment rules

May 06, 2016
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. 

 

Tugberk Ugurlu, Software Developer at Redgate Software, will share at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016 about how docker changes the way you can work with and release your microservices & zero downtime deployment golden rules.i-take-unconference-speaker.011

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

  • Read and try stuff
  • Be part of the software community
  • Ask questions
  • Coding outside the work (side projects, open source contributions, etc.)
  • Learn by teaching (speaking at conferences, writing blogs posts, etc.)

 

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

Both of my talks are overcoming the challenges of modern software products. Zero-downtime deployment session will empathize on the possibility of always-up systems and making continuous deployment more adoptable. There are a few things to watch out on this space and I am hoping to highlight on that by giving examples and demos on my real world experiences.

The docker session will get you a higher level on how a tool can make a difference on developing and releasing products, in this case microservices.

 

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

I like to be part of the software community. So, I produce a lot. You can follow my activity on my blog and GitHub account.

I love traveling and discovering new places. I am a huge Formula 1 fan.
