What Did I Learn at Codemotion Berlin 2017
As you noticed, I post a new blog post about the development of an interactive ToDo list regularly, every five days. But today I am going to tell you about the international IT-conference Codemotion, that I have attended on 12-13. October in Berlin.
There were a lot of informative and motivational topics, that can inspire everyone, who are interested or work in IT-branch.
All talks occurred in four different spaces and referred by the topic of the sessions. For example, in
Maschinenhaus speakers gave a speech mostly about technologies and practical approaches that they use. In
Community Stage the talks were related to motivational topics, discussing programming languages.
Also, there took place
Ruby on Rails Workshop. The full agenda of the conference you can check below:
The most interesting talks for me as a frontend developer, I included to
My Favorites list.
I would like to share more information about them with you:
Frontend Frameworkless Development by Francesco Strazzullo | exstrategy
The idea of the talk based on the possibility to develop new apps, new features for apps while not using any frameworks. The example code, the empty forms, are written in
React+Redux frameworks for that.
Firstly, the speaker showed us that there is no dependency in
package.json (the file that includes all dependencies and configures the project).
Then they have implemented the function that is similar to ReactDOM rendering.
Next, they have replaced Redux features by creating variables
state. They handle the current and calculation of the new state. Finally, they store new state back to
Frameworks might die the following year.
How to rock the stage: public speaking for geeks by Lorenzo Barbieri | Microsoft Western Europe
I am an introvert.
Naturally, I have found this talk extremely useful for me. It is on how to improve my soft skills by speaking not only in front of the people but also with others.
The slide on the photo below describes some “icebreakers” that allow starting, keeping, and controlling a conversation in life, and on the stage.
Build bridges, not walls - Design for users across cultures by Jenny Shen | Toptal
I was lucky to meet and speak personally with the speaker Jenny Shen. They have worked in five countries before and currently are based in Amsterdam.
Using illustrative examples, Jenny showed us how important it is to know the culture of society you are developing for.
What kinds of problems can appear in design? Which data should be taken into account to make people of different cultures happy?
I have already moved to another country once. I can relate to that so much.
Most of my development projects are for multicultural users. I think it is necessary to know most common obstacles that I could meet on my “development” path.
Codemotion conferences are worldwide.
They are suitable for any professional level of IT-people with different backgrounds. That helps to get to know more about IT-world at its current state.
It is fantastic to participate in workshops, and network with amazing people.
