Luigi Cutolo OnBoarding into the customer’s project with Technical Mentorship of Antonio Torre

Talent to Expert Journey is an experience of several months and involves different characters of the Like A Coffee Community. In addition to the Talent himself , Technological Mentor, Project Manager, Design Thinker and at least one Business Mentor are also directly involved in the process.

This process results in Onboarding of junior developer into Like A Coffee partner’s projects, where Talent gets real project experience within a development team of big company. We in Like A Coffee strongly believe that mentored onboarding is part of successful Talent to Expert Journey, and it makes all involved sides (LAC partner, Talent and LAC responsible persons) confident about the result.

few months ago we were telling the story of Luigi’s journey, passing through the most significant steps:

My thesis in DevOps Testing / Talent-Mentor Conversation [part 2] >>

We have collected feedback about the Onboarding in a new video where  Antonio and Luigi tell us about their feelings and their experience during a mentored onboarding phase:

Time Assistant development Story by Luigi Cutolo and Antonio Torre

Time Assistant is a web and mobile  application of Like A Coffee community developed by Luigi Cutolo during his Talent to Expert Journey.

This is  mobile app that aims to facilitate developer’s time tracking.

It allows Talents to  track their activities via their smartphones or web and synchronize them with the Project management tool and calendar of activities.
Here you can see a small video with Antonio Torre an Luigi Cutolo during a development session:

Development of this application has helped Luigi to follow the whole process of developing an application from scratch:

Ideation and designing in cooperation with Design Thinker and Talent Manager

User stories structure in cooperation with Project Manager

Sprint and Agile development in cooperation with Project Manager and Tech Mentor

Testing and Delivery with Tech Mentor

Talent Management System developed by Talents for Talents

Hi everyone! 

We are back to resume the thread of our internal application Talent to Expert Journey (T2EJ) story. 
 
This time our Junior developers from Liepaja, Latvia will be on stage, taking over the “story marathon” and telling you about their developing experience from a technical side.
The speech will be about the challenges faced, the bottlenecks overcome, the learnings acquired and the solutions found by the team.
 
Let’s welcome the team members Aija Lagzdina, Janis PavlovsEmils Pukis, Ulvis Priedulis and their mentor Janos Ujvari on our YT channel on 10th May at 5 pm (CET).

Remote team gets closer!

Two weeks ago, from 19th till 23rd March, our senior developer and mentor János Ujvári from Budapest (Hungary) visited part of our community based in Latvia so as to carry out extensive activities together with the Talent and Partner manager Jevgenija Sahovala and her partners, Universities and IT Schools there.

 

János shared his technical competence by leading three MEAN Stack workshops during that week – at University of Liepaja (IT Faculty) on 20th March, at EKA (University of Economics and Culture, Riga) on 22nd March and at LLU, Jelgava on 23rd March.

In detail, János showcased how to develop a small app with Angular from scratch – starting from the installation and set-up of the development infrastructure to a working web application.

At first students were introduced to MEAN Stack acronym and Git repository infrastructure and then, invited to set their own development infrastructure up and running through coding along with Janos.
According to our philosophy, even remote students had the opportunity to join us online by tuning in on the Like A Coffee YouTube channel live streaming from EKA on 22nd March (if you missed it, the recording is available at the following link: https://youtu.be/BCm1Hzs7PjQ )

.

As Like A Coffee, we also took part in TSI (Transporta un Sakaru Instituts) Career Day on 21st March with an exhibition booth and our working approach presentation.

We shared our experience about T2EJ and remote work welcoming visitors and audience at the presentation. It definitely was a great bonding experience the participation in such an event all together with János, Aija, Janis, Emils and Jevgenija.

 

Closing evening event of the week was the presentation about remote working and its pros and cons at Riga Coding School on 23rd of March.

Blessed by the sunlight throughout the day, the atmosphere got fairly pleasant with so many interested participants, who kept talking and interacting with Jevgenija and Janos about Like A Coffee working approach and their own experience working from different environments.

Last but not least, what we treasured the most was the enjoyable meeting of the Latvian Team as a whole with their mentor and Talent manager in Liepaja for a two-day team-building gathering - playing pool, go-karting and having some pizza and drinks all together.

For sure the best way to get closer and improve communication!

We as Like A Coffee thank all the Latvian Partners, that hosted our presentations during this week, and also Latvian Team, who showed an amazing unity and cooperation throughout these days spent together.
