• Tinel #22 - Michiel de Wit

    Locastic office space

    The tech industry is now over half a century old and we can’t really call ourselves young anymore, especially since the pioneering part is already long forgotten. Software development is entering the stage of a regular traditional job, although previously it was considered the industry for youngsters. That transition brought a lot of questions that remained unanswered regarding the status of an older developer in a demographically younger environment. How do older developers fit in with the younger generation? Will they be able to continue developing software until their pension? What are the prospects for older developers? Do they have to start looking out for a job outside the field? Or can they put their grey hairs to their (and the team's) advantage? We’ve got Michiel de Wit to answer all of those questions in a single talk. He will show examples of older developers on what they actually did, and how they managed to stay relevant. He will question the traditional Developer – Team lead – Project leader career path and show how Agile actually opens up a whole new set of possibilities. Michiel is the co-founder of start.me and seasoned developer, Scrum master and Agile Coach. He has got over 20 years of experience in developing products from classic Windows COM+ applications to Ruby on Rails, Prolog and Delphi. The event is taking place on the 21st of March, we strongly suggest that you confirm your place at Tinel Meetup #22 - you’re in for a treat! The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #22 is as follows: 17:30 — 18:00 The gathering 18:00 — 18:15 Opening remarks: Duje Saric (Locastic) 18:15 — 19:30 Michiel de Wit: Grey hairs in IT 19:30 — FreeBeer o' clock! Every Tinel is powered by the help of our amazing event partners in the shape of Bokamorra, LAB Split Craft, Biberon Cakes. They will make sure that we are well equipped with craft beer, pizza and cakes.

    Due to an unforeseen circumstance with our speakers' work schedule, Tinel Meetup with Andrea Provaglio will be put on hold. But, don't worry - we've already got a replacement coming in. Do you have more things to do than time to do them? If so, you have to decide what to do and what not to do. Agility can help you in doing things that matter. Everybody wants to be “agile”, but often people do not know what that really means. For an organization, agility is about aligning on goals, on the problems to be solved, and then collaborating on the solution. A leader does not simply tell people what to do but rather activates the intelligence in the organization to solve important problems. Lately, people started to implement agility in their personal lives. That concept is called Personal Agility and you can apply it beyond the workplace. Personal Agility helps people identify what matters most in their lives. It got the name because it is based on the same values, principles, and patterns as Scrum and Agile software development, but recognizes that organizing your life is a different challenge than creating products as a team. Personal Agility enables you to have more impact at work and more satisfaction in your life. Before we even managed to turn our back, Tinel reached its 21st edition where we are hosting Peter Stevens - speaker, trainer, coach, and mentor. He is a Certified Scrum Trainer who has been inspiring companies and individuals to transform themselves to thrive in the 21st century. ** PLEASE NOTE ** Tinel will be taking place an hour earlier than usual, with Peter's talk kicking-off at 18h on the 21st of February! The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #21 is as follows: 17:30 — 18:00 The gathering 18:00 — 18:15 Opening remarks 18:15 — 19:30 Peter Stevens: Agility is not only for teams 19:30 — FreeBeer o' clock!

  • Tinel #20 - Pauline Vos

    New year, new Tinel, new speaker. 20th edition of Tinel Meetup will feature a talk by Werkspot's Software Engineer - Pauline Vos. People tend to have Git issues on a regular basis, and if that's the case with you - it's possible that you are not using it optimally. This talk will lay out how to make your life easier only by changing your daily Git usage through atomic commits and other best practices. Next time you’re pulling your hair out from rebase hell, remember this talk. Many Git users tend to use Git as a save point, like in a video game; chronologically making checkpoint commits as they go. This spreads out changes to the same areas in the code over several commits, necessitates merging and resolving conflicts, and generally just making an incomprehensible jumble of your history. This talk makes a case for atomic commits and how to use them while only minimally affecting your workflow. Using pre-recorded demos, you’ll learn how to properly interactively rebase, fix up, reset, bisect, and more. By the end of the talk, you’ll have seen how this Git flow will make your life easier and how it will affect your ability to cherry pick, drop unwanted commits, and most importantly: not spend hours resolving conflicts in rebasing hell. The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #16 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:45 The gathering 19:00 — 19:15 Opening remarks 19:15 — 20:00 Pauline Vos: Git Legit 20:00 — QA, discussion, networking The event will be supported from our amazing partners in the shape of Bokamorra, LAB Split Craft, Biberon Cakes, Marvie Hotel. Split Tech City will stream the event online, while you can check the latest coverage on Netokracija.

    Augmented Reality is a trend that offers you to render virtual objects in the real world. If you used either Pokemon GO or Snapchat filters, you should already be familiar with the concept. What about WebAR? WebAR is still in its early stage, but the whole experience was simplified a lot, since you only need a smartphone, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s iOS or Android. But, the beautiful thing is that the possibilities of Augmented Reality are countless, and we haven’t even scratched the surface yet. What if we told you that we managed to bring a speaker who has been hosting technical trainings for companies like Apple, Google, LinkedIn, Yahoo!, PayPal, Intel, Cisco, HP, Turner, eBay, and more? It’s true. Maximiliano Firtman will be the next guest at the upcoming Tinel Meetup #17, with a talk based on Augmented Reality on the Web. Max is a web and mobile developer, trainer, speaker and writer. He is Adobe Community Champion and founder of ITMaster Professional Training, who also wrote many books, including "Programming the Mobile Web" and "jQuery Mobile: Up and Running" published by O'Reilly Media. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 16th at the Locastic HQ in Split.

    There’s one thing that most, if not all our events, have in common - great topics. This time around, we have secured a talk on Angular Service Worker that should be interesting for every Frontend developer who wants to enhance their level of knowledge. For free. Since Angular is one of those open-source front-end web application frameworks that are constantly upgraded by their dev team at Google, it is crucial to follow all the latest trends. One of those trends are Progressive Web Apps which are destined to become the next big thing in 2019. Progressive Web Apps are a new era of cross-platform development and adding PWA features means getting it to the next level of user experience. Angular developers are lucky to have some really nice options to automate their PWA’s main functionality exposed by Service Worker API. So, for the upcoming event, our Angular lecturer is none other than Maxim Salnikov, a Google Developer Expert in Web Technologies & IoT, and a Microsoft MVP in Development Technologies. The event will take place on Friday, 7th of September at the Locastic office in Split. Maxim is famous for creating complex web applications since for almost 20 years and has extensive experience with all aspects of web platform focusing on the apps managing real-time data from IoT devices and Progressive Web Apps. During this talk, you will learn about NGSW’s main components, and how they take our web app to the next level, and all you need to have is some knowledge about mobile and web development, with a strong ambition to create apps for any device. The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #16 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:45 The gathering 19:00 — 19:15 Opening remarks: Boris Kostreš (Locastic) 19:00 — 20:00 Maxim Salnikov: Angular Service Worker in details 20:00 — QA, discussion, networking The event will be supported from our amazing partners in the shape of Bokamorra, LAB Split Craft, Biberon Cakes, Marvie Hotel.

    Quality Assurance or QA Testing is a procedure in software development that ensures there are no bugs or routine issues in the app. That’s a topic that wasn’t really covered on Tinel events - so it’s time to change that fact. The challenges in Testing have been growing exponentially, disrupted by business needs to release software very frequently, especially complex integrations and big-data and 2018 is the year where companies have to focus on Quality Engineering in order to be successful in upcoming years. So we talked to Valeriy Burmistrov, head of Quality Assurance at TeamViewer who has been in QA / Test Engineering for more than 15 years and we managed to persuade him to come to Split. The event will take place on August, the 23rd. In a talk called "Modern Approach to Software Testing and QA" e will cover all the tips and tricks about QA and Testing, covered with case studies from a QA Director that worked in Russia, Silicon Valley, Germany and companies like TV, Avira, Align Tech and more. You probably know that TeamViewer is one of the worldwide leading solutions for desktop sharing and online collaboration over the Internet. The software has been growing so rapidly to more than 100,000,000 installations in more than 200 countries all over the world. Everyone has used it at least once and you can tell that the software architecture must be really complex. The base technology developed by the company powers TeamViewer's state-of-the-art high-performance global server network that routes connections based on geolocalization technology Sounds good, right? Valeriy’s talk will be featured on Tinel Meetup #15 in Split, that’s taking place on the 23rd of August so make sure you book your place rather sooner than later. The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #15 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:45 The gathering 19:00 — 19:10 Introduction: Relja Zulim (Locastic) 19:10 — 20:30 Valeriy Burmistrov: Modern Approach to Software Testing and QA. 20:30 — TBD: Questions, Networking, Pizza, Beers, Cakes

  • Tinel #13 - Ryan Townsend (Shift Commerce)

    Locastic office space

    How time flies… It’s been a year straight since we launched the Tinel Meetup event and now, twelve meetups and two workshops later, we couldn’t be more proud on all the milestones that we managed to achieve. Tinel switched so many topics in the last few months like User Experience, Accessibility, GDPR, and digital marketing, but, in this following appearance at Tinel, we are going back to our roots - website speed and performance. Fast websites are essential for a great user experience, yet it can still seem impossible to convince clients and stakeholders of the value that performance holds. Our next guest is Ryan Townsend, Chief Technology Officer at Shift Commerce, and he will talk about how to build a fast website without even involving your clients in the agreement process. The talk is tailored for front-end developers who can improve the performance without the need for any costly rewrites, new infrastructure, or any kind of work that requires permissions and budget. Ryan has over 15 years of experience in developing complex software solutions, while his area of expertise lies in website performance optimization. As a CTO at Shift Commerce, he worked on a SaaS e-Commerce platform that brings agility to mid-to-enterprise companies, most notably one of the largest UK retailers - Matalan. Besides delivering high-end software solutions, Ryan recently kick-started his conference speaker campaign that’s showing great potential. In his recent venture to DevDay18 in Berlin, he won the Best Speaker Award with a talk called Building Fast Websites Against All Odds. That exact talk will be featured on Tinel Meetup #13 in Split, that’s taking place on the 21st of June, so make sure you book your place at our one-year anniversary and enjoy everything we’ve got in store for you! The agenda for the upcoming Tinel Meetup #13 is as follows: 18:00 — 18:45 The gathering 19:00 — 20:00 Ryan Townsend: Building Fast Websites Against All Odds 20:15 — 20:30 Antonio Perić: The road to Tinel Meetup 20:30 — TBD: Tinel birthday afterparty
