Speaker 1

Michaeljohn Clement: Software Develper. Michaeljohn acquired deep experience with front-end technologies, especially JavaScript, during his years as a freelance Web developer, and was an early contributor to Node.js. He has worked with startups and small companies all over the world. He moved from the US to China in 2011 and believes many of the biggest opportunities for tech startups are found in the Middle Kingdom. As a teacher, Michaeljohn advocates learning by doing, and LeWagon's program is a great way for students to put theory immediately into practice.

Michaeljohn Clement是一名软件工程师。他具有丰富的前端开发知识,尤其是JavaScript,在还在做网页开发自由职业时,是Node.js.的早期贡献者之一。他合作的创业公司和小型公司遍布世界。2011年,Michaeljohn从美国搬到中国,并且相信对于科技创业公司来说,一切千载难逢的机会将会发生在中国的土地上。作为一名编程导师,Michaeljohn提倡学以致用,而Le Wagon的编程训练营的存在就是为了让学生即时将理论付诸实践。

Under the topic “digital nomadism”, Michaeljohn’s talk will center around how to develop and demonstrate mastery as a freelance developer. He will introduce the concept of mastery as it applies to software professionals. This is lens through which we can better understand trends in the industry we work in, choose which technologies to adopt or avoid, and even find people to work with and have our skills recognized. As software professionals, we produce something almost intangible, using tools that most of our clients have never seen and writing languages that people literally refer to as a “code”. We may spend years mastering our tools, but we cannot demonstrate that mastery to anyone outside our field.

关于“数码游牧”生活这一话题,Michaeljohn将会就自由程序开发员如何发展和精进谈起,介绍能够应用到专业软件开发中的技术概念。通过这个角度,我们可以更好地理解所在行业的趋势,明智选择该使用或是避免哪些技术,甚至是找到合作队友,并且让自己的技术得到认可。作为专业软件开发者,我们打造的是几乎无法触摸的东西,使用的工具也是大部分的客户从来没见过的,我们使用的语言人们通常称之为“代码”。也许我们花费了许多年精通了这些工具,但是却无法向外行人展示这一点。

Is mastery even something that can be measured? Is the “10x engineer” a myth or something achievable? How can we attain mastery in a field that is constantly changing?

精通真的可以被衡量吗?“10倍速工程师”到底是传说还是真的可以实现?我们如何在一个瞬息万变的领域中大道精通状态呢?

In this talk he will introduce a specific practice that he uses to address these questions. There should be useful takeaways for any software developer or anyone who markets themselves as a solo freelancer doing digital work.

在演讲中Michaeljohn将会介绍他自己用来应对这个问题的方法。对于任何软件开发员或是认为自己是从事数码工种的自由职业者的人,这个演讲都绝不会让你空手而归。

Vlad: Design Strategist. Combining strategic thinking with interdisciplinary design approach to create meaningful experiences that connect with people.

Vlad是一名设计策略师:将策略式思维与交互设计方法相结合,以创造能够联结个体的有意义的体验。

Vlad is going to bring the “designer perspective” to the notion of digital nomadism. Awesome and appealing it might sound, freelancing and remote work can affect career development in the long run. Through his witty analogies, Vlad will debunk “digital nomadism” by revealing that it is a rather sad reality of globalization rather than a “paradise” people fantasize as.

Vlad将会从“设计师”角度谈谈他对“数码游牧”生活方式这一话题的独到见解。虽然听上去非常有吸引力,这种将自由职业与远程工作相结合的生活方式却会影响到长期的职业发展。通过风趣的类推比较,Vlad打算揭露“数码游牧”的真实面目:与人们心目中的“完美工作状态”相反,它是全球化带来的残酷现实。

Simonie: Product & Interaction designer. Researching future relationships between people and emerging technologies anddesigning digital, physical and behavioral interfaces.

Simonie will talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of being a design nomad based onhis experience, as well as the role of cultural clashes in this lifestyle. He will also introduce some obscure theories about it.

Simonie将结合自己的多年自由职业生涯来谈谈自由设计师生活有哪些好处坏处以及不为人知的丑陋一面。同时他还会谈到文化冲突在这种生活模式中的角色以及一些鲜为人知的相关理论。
