But let’s start from the beginning:
At the end of August, Future Processing hosted the first Silesian meeting of Polish Microsoft Azure Users Group. In the agenda participants could find three lectures, one of which was carried out by Krzysztof Szabelski, who also took part in Cracow’s edition of the ‘PaaS, IaaS and a lot of answers’ event (organised by Microsoft Poland) and in Azure Day North conference.
Another conference that took place in September, was ‘BBQ 4 IT’ in Bielsko-Biala, where Marcin Drobik and Krzysztof Szabelski gave a lecture entitled ‘From zero to hero – business increment in 30 minutes’. The lecture was aimed at explaining how to deliver a working IT solution using the right tools, in half an hour.
‘I Would Rather Have a Backend Guy Write Frontend Code Than the Other Way Round ’ was yet another lecture given by our expert Matuesz Tarnaski during DevDay conference that took place on 14-16th of September in Cracow.
As Mateusz explained:
Front-End is usually associated with code which is difficult to manage and develop, numerous correlations and immature technologies. Additionally, it is usually required from the presentation layer to be constantly updated and changed, to meet the needs of diverse audience. As a part of my lecture, I wanted to show how many ‘new’ front-end solutions are inspired by good practices resulting from many years of working with the code, in the times when no one knew even what front-end was. Their application can solve multiple programming problems no matter the technology, language, project or environment. This is the reason why they’re called ‘good practices’.
This September was also the month of quality, since we hosted the Quality Meetup for the ninth time. As usual, it gathered a lot of people interested in Quality Assurance.
A few days after, TestWarez took place. This is a very popular event among quality engineers, that is why a large number of our lecturers appeared in the agenda, including:
– Karolina Trzcionka, Martyna Róg with ‘Pimp your team! Coaching as part of a leader’s job – tips, tricks & practice’ workshop,
– Robert Nyga and Kasjan Kotynia with ‘The implementation of automation in IT projects – case studies’,
– Daniel Dec, Kamila Gawrońska and Tomasz Wierzchowski with ‘Testing vs. checking’ discussion panel.
But that’s not all – our lecturers also shared their knowledge abroad – Kamil Dworak, software engineer working on a Smart City project, took part in the 8th International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence (ICCCI 2016) in Greece. Our expert delivered a lecture entitled ‘Differential Cryptanalysis of FEAL Using Evolutionary Algorithm’.
Our representatives couldn’t miss IV International Conference ‘Monitored City – personnel, law aspects and CCTV systems technology’, which took place on 21-23rd of September in Bukowina Tatrzańska. Tomasz Gandor gave a lecture entitled ‘Picture Analysis Algorithms and Smart City Tools’, whereas Szymon Janota took part in a discussion panel ‘How new technologies change the monitoring? Possible implementations of automatic image analysis in the cities’.
Participants could also learn more about Civico – FP’s own intelligent video analysis solution which can detect dangerous behaviour of citizens like vandalism or wrong-way driving.
