    Online event

    UX EXPERT DEBBIE LEVITT AT TINEL#36! One of the unsung songs in the software world is that your customer only sees your UX, not your code or your 50 developers, or whether you were Agile or Lean when developing the app. So at the 36th TINEL, we are discussing the importance of CX with Delta's Debbie Levitt! 🔗 https://youtu.be/2o0NsMFOMoM The event is scheduled for the 16th of July at 7PM and it will be streamed via our Youtube channel. In case you're interested in the event format, take a look at our previous talk with Amazon's Nader Dabit, for example. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvMzHeJV3vt51bXgMQuwhM4I5kvqHIsv1 At the upcoming TInel, we will look how some of the popular methodologies we think are bringing everybody onto the CX bandwagon might be training co-workers on how little they need us. We’ll be focusing on hiring CX specialists, the role of managers and leadership, processes, workflows, tools, and improving collaboration between us and our cross-functional teammates. Most importantly, we’ll look at how to measure the ROI of CX. Without being able to prove our worth, we are unlikely to get a seat at the table or level up our company’s maturity. ABOUT DEBBIE Debbie has influenced interfaces at Sony, Wells Fargo, Constant Contact, Macys.com, Oracle, and a variety of Silicon Valley startups. Clients have given her the nickname, “Mary Poppins,” because she flies in, improves everything she can, sings a few songs, and flies away to her next adventure. Debbie has presented her talks at conferences including eBay’s Developer Conference, PayPal’s Developer Conference, UXPA, and WeAreDevelopers. She is an O’Reilly published author and one of few instructors on the planet recommended by Axure. Her “DevOps ICU” book and training teach non-CX roles about CX, why it’s done by specialists, and how to integrate it into teams and processes. Her “Delta CX” book and training teach companies how to improve customer satisfaction, predict and mitigate business risk, and increase ROI by investing in great customer experiences. Outside of CX work, and sometimes during CX work, Debbie enjoys singing symphonic prog goth metal, opera, and New Wave.

    AMAZON'S NADER DABIT ON TINEL IN JUNE! Last month we introduced a new online format to TINEL events and following some really positive feedback - it's time to do more! 🔗 https://youtu.be/is0F_enSjmQ On the 25th of June, Nader Dabit will deliver a talk on TINEL called "Transforming GraphQL". In this talk, he will show how you can use a combination of GraphQL SDL along with a new GraphQL DSL (GraphQL Transform) created by the Amplify team to build out a full-stack cloud application directly from your GraphQL schema. Nader Dabit is a web and mobile developer, who specializes in building cross-platform and cloud-enabled applications at Amazon. Prior to working with AWS, Nader trained companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Salesforce, and American Express on how to build applications using the React and React Native frameworks through his company React Native Training. ABOUT THE TALK As front-end tooling and frameworks continue to evolve and improve at a pace that is often hard to keep up with, serverless abstractions continue to move closer and closer to the client, abstracting away back end services and making them more and more consumable by traditionally front end developers. Using this GraphQL DSL, we’ll walk through how to model a Database, authorization rules, relationships, and custom access patterns. We’ll look at how to rapidly prototype an example application, and view some demos including a voting app capable of handling over 100,000 operations per second.

    Online event

    TINEL IS BACK NEXT THURSDAY! Following the canceled event with Kene Udeze due to the COVID-19 epidemic outburst, we immediately started to discuss the idea of an online event - but early on we felt that taking things online would ruin the essential piece of the event - which is networking and the complete "living-room" experience. Now the time has come to switch things up and present you with our online event format - and to kick things off: Uncle Cal is coming to the rescue! Cal Evans is author of five Leanpub books, Signaling PHP, Iterating PHP Iterators, Going Pro, Culture of Respect, and Uncle Cal’s Career Advice to Developers. After 15 years of work with MySQL and PHP - he switched his focus on building (better) developers through dev trainings in EICC, Zend, and Kony Solutions. On the 28th of May, Uncle Call will deliver a talk on TINEL called "Leadership as a Joke" - and as he puts it - "Come and I'll tell you a joke that I've learned as a 12-year-old kid. What does an old-joke have to do with LEADERSHIP? We have no idea, but we suggest that you join us on the online edition of Tinel next Thursday (28.5) at 19:00h and find out!

    Due to some unforeseen circumstances with travel arrangements, Kévin Dunglas had to cancel his attendance at the upcoming Tinel event in Split. Luckily, all we had to do is take a look in our own backyard where we found a great replacement candidate. In the past few months, Paula has delivered her API testing talk at events like ForumPHP in Paris, PHP Benelux and SunshinePHP in Miami and we have a strong feeling that the Tinel audience is going to enjoy it as well! This Thursday we will be talking about software testing and if that's something you aren't doing yet - you should start! Tests will improve the quality of your code, reduce bugs and probably force you to think more about design and quality. The toughest part is probably to figure out which type of tests to write and how to test some specific logic in your app - but don't give up! Paula will present a few tips she learned along the way that will hopefully make your life easier. In this talk, you will hear about different test types and when to use them, real examples based on PHPUnit and Postman, followed by some tools for checking the test quality. This talk is for every developer who did some research with testing, tried to implement the process, but they weren’t able to make it useful - RSVP now and see you on Thursday! The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #33 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:30 The gathering 18:30 — 18:35 Opening remarks 18:35 — 19:30 Paula Čučuk: When you get lost in API testing 19:30 — 19:45 Q&A: Ask Paula! 19:45 — Free Beer o'clock! -- If you're never been to Tinel, here's what you can expect. Every single month we bring prominent tech speakers to Split in order to distribute knowledge to the growing local tech community. At some point during the Tinel journey, we joined forces with ICT županija, a partner that recognized the event potential and instantly started to support the cause. We put a big emphasis on networking and meeting new people that share your interests, so we strongly suggest that you arrive a bit earlier. Our event partners LAB Split, Bokamorra and Biberon Cakes will make sure that you are well refreshed with tasty pizza, craft beers and delicious cakes.

    What's the last thing you ordered something online, and it turned out it was another item that you didn't need? Don't worry, we know that feeling! Online shopping behaviour is usually based on emotion which is mostly triggered by originality and can’t be quantified by statistics. Everyone knows that, but still, there is an alarming situation happening in the world of E-commerce. Online shopping is ruled by overthought designs that are based on statistics that eventually result in every webshop being the same. At the 30th edition of Tinel that's taking place in late November, ICT županija helped us bring Julian Mollema, lead designer from one of the top Dutch digital agencies - Build in Amsterdam. The main topic of the evening will be E-commerce, and who better to discuss the latest trends than someone who won three consecutive awards for the E-commerce solution of the year at Awwwards and actively works for companies like Adidas, Nike and Mammut. The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #30 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:30 The gathering 18:30 — 18:45 Opening remarks 18:45 — 19:30 Julian Mollema: Fighting E-Commerce Sameness 19:30 — 19:45 Q&A with Julian 19:45 — Free Beer o' clock! -- If you're never been to Tinel, here's what you can expect.

    The year of 2018 has been a complete video revolution year for entrepreneurs, marketers and the rest of digital people that implemented video content marketing as a part of their online strategy. Unlike many other channels that can be hard to consume, video allows you to be concise and capture viewers' interest in the first few seconds. It also boosts conversions and sales, increases the ROI, and it builds better trust with your customers. Sure, that's all fine and dandy and you probably knew that, but how does one start with doing video? The first step is obviously to purchase some basic equipment, create an editorial calendar to lead the way, and you should be ready to roll. You click the red button, point the camera, shoot the video, stop recording, and if you've done everything correctly - an .mp4 (or similar) file should be saved to your hard drive - now what? Now it's time to summon your inspirational muse and get into the lovely world of media management, scripting, motion graphics, colour correction and sound design. That can sound a bit SCARY, but who cares - it's Halloween! The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #29 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:30 The gathering 18:30 — 18:45 Opening remarks 18:45 — 19:30 Nemanja Savić: Video tricks & treats 19:30 — 19:45 Q&A with Nemanja 19:45 — Free Beer o' clock! Our speaker partner, ICT županija helped us bring a true video finisher to shed some light on the matter and show what you need to focus on if you want to venture into the world of video production. Nemanja Savić is a digital professional that produced, recorded and edited dozens of videos and TV shows for educational or entertainment purposes - and he's coming to Split to tell you all about the workflow of a video finisher, things he learned, and of course - tricks and treats on creating better videos for your marketing channels. -- If you're never been to Tinel, here's what you can expect.

    Experts say that a few years from now voice will be the primary input mechanism for virtually all interfaces. Science fiction books, movies and TV shows have predicted this trend for years, including the iconic ship computer in Star Trek, or, more recently, the operating system Samantha in the 2013 film Her. Yet these interfaces are no longer purely fiction; platforms like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are enabling users to talk to their computers and take more hands-free actions than ever before. But what is the state of the art in 2019, and what does it mean for you as a software engineer? Nara Kasbergen knows a lot about the subject since she is the lead engineer for voice interfaces and emerging platforms at National Public Radio (NPR). We got Nara to Tinel Meetup to cover the many things she learned along the way, including what voice UI development is and isn't. We'll go over the core strategy for building a voice app for platforms like Alexa and Google using JavaScript, as well as discuss limitations of the current tech and predictions for how it will evolve in the future. Finally, she will touch upon some essential skills that a developer in this space should possess, so that you'll feel prepared to enter the voice UI space, whether you're planning to start working with it tomorrow or a decade from now. The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #28 is as follows: 18:30 — 19:15 The gathering 19:15 — 19:30 Opening remarks 19:30 — 20:30 Nara Kasbergen: Voice - The new Frontend 20:30 — 20:45 Q&A with Nara 20:45 — FreeBeer o' clock! If you're never been to Tinel, then you're in for a treat. Every single month we bring interesting tech speakers to Split with the help of our lovely event partner - ICT županija. A big emphasis is on networking and meeting new people that share your interests, so we strongly suggest that you arrive a bit earlier. Besides that, our event partners LAB Split, Bokamorra and Biberon Cakes will make sure that you are well refreshed with complimentary pizza, beers and cakes. In case you decide to go for that extra beer, don't you dare to drive. Uber prepared a discount-code TINELMEETUP09 which makes driving back home a bit pointless - safety first! See you at Tinel #28 with Nara Kasbergen on the 5th of September (19h).
