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.

PRESO TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT SPEECH

Last week we rolled out a live streaming from our Youtube channel to share the knowledge gained in the Preso experimental project with the whole Like A Coffee community.

For those of you who missed it, Preso is an IoT smart outlet that allows you to control any of your plugged-in household devices performance and to monitor your home power consumption directly from your smart PresoApp.

 

Why can it be important for you, potential talent, to get to know something more on how we carried out this project development?

 

  • First of all, because you can exclusively take a look behind the scenes on how we actually dealt with such a complex research project effectively in a remote way within a cross-cultural environment.
  • Secondly, because you can get insights on how such a project was managed.
  • And, finally, because you can get an educational opportunity for free by means of an interactive lesson. You can actively take part in the discussion by commenting or by asking questions to the expert panel in real time and being answered right away.

 

Preso is one of our experimental projects in IoT where some of our talents played a great role in, both on a software – and on a development part.

As the video begins, Filomena gives the big picture on it to you, tuned-in community, and introduces three members of the Preso dev team who dealt with different development aspect of it:

 

Attilio, IoT specialist and Head of “Steam Port, IoT lab” situated in Southern Italy, who showed more in detail:

  • the hardware components Preso is made up of;
  • the software technologies used for its prototyping;
  • the communication protocols used in the various iterations;
  • the data collecting system.

 

Giuseppe, Talent Full Stack web developer, involved in Preso as experimental project, who explained to our community:

  • The whole architecture system of the PresoApp, namely DB, a focus both on IoT back-end and main back-end and one on the front-end;
  • The full stack technology used.

 

Emils, Talent Front-end web developer and involved in the project as IT project manager intern who shared with us his experience with respect to:

  • how he integrated later in a running software development project within a remote team;
  • the messaging applications used;
  • The tools to handle a the workflow, the common code versioning and the mock-ups prototyping, in cooperation with our designer Giuseppe.

 

It goes without saying that also other worth-mentioning team members actively worked on this project: our tireless mentors Antonio and János and our Talent Luigi.

Because Together Everyone Achieves More.

What’s in it for you in Like A Coffee?

When you are a fresh graduate your priority looks to be the experience gaining since tackling the world of work is no easy challenge for a talent to unleash his or her full potential.

But without a proper framework to act in, the sole work experience could not suffice.

A custom-designed learning path whose purpose is to turn you from a talent into an ICT junior expert could be a great opportunity to take and a safe way to accelerate your know-how and get to your professional goal quickly.

Here is a short video on how we have designed this learning path:

What matters and tops it off is the opportunity to develop organization skills which come in handy when it is about setting up both daily and weekly purposes, prioritizing activities and tasks, implementing procedures, monitoring your milestones and, ultimately, achieving your goals.

Do you think you are able to manage your own time?

Let’s hear what the development team members from Liepaja (Latvia) think about the opportunity to join Like A Coffee in order to improve their self-discipline so as to achieve the goals they have set beforehand:

Upskilling is no quick task if you are not supported by a larger community made up both by peers and seniors. The interactions which occur daily can take you further than you might think, while you see yourself becoming more and more flexible by acquiring the right mindset to work on European IT projects by means of state-of-art technologies.

Let’s listen to Giuseppe’s experience:

Behind every project there is a whole community involved.

Not just development side but also management and communication sides play a significant role. This makes the experience of each of you, young talents, enriching.

The core of the self-development for you lies, no doubt, in the relationship with the mentor/senior developer who provides guidance and support and instills in you so many values  that you can take them to heart in your toolbox.

Let’s see what Luigi thinks about his relationship with his mentor and with the whole community:

The human-centric relationship is in the middle of our true collaborative environment.

Your self-education later  becomes a multiplier of good practices for all of us and, ultimately, for your profession.

Why don’t you seize the moment and get aboard our community?
