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.

Like A Coffee meets the University of Salerno

Every time companies and young talent meet is an asset entailing food for thought on the future as well as on the existing opportunities, and the ones yet to come.

The opportunities for students to get in contact with the real and practical world of work increase steeply, thanks to the technical skills acquired during their learning paths.

Last 8th November we met IT students and some professors of the Faculty of Information Technology at the Università di Salerno.

 

During the first part of the lecture we focused on innovative ecosystems and on the working model of the Like A Coffee community. The core of our presentation has been mainly the Talent to Expert Journey with a specific focus on the mentoring activities and on the experimental projects we are currently developing with the talents who are working along us right now.

 

Professor Vittorio Scarano, who kindly hosted us and is also responsible for the outgoing students guidance, granted us a brief interview at the end of our lecture where he shared his impressions.

 

Listen to the video below!

Accelerate your talent within the Like a Coffee community

Innovation ecosystem and community

The sharing strategy to generate opportunities.

In this rapidly changing age where work is the output of multiple minds, we are moving towards the creation of an ecosystem which involves the smartest people for them to be an asset and to add value to the organization.

Innovation to be truly open needs a community environment which is more and more able to generate common visions and opportunities.

Community Like a Coffee

Its founding principles.

We are the result of different experiences, different personal stories, different educational and professional paths. Web and mobile development, design, IoT, Industry 4.0, mobile and design thinking, social recruiting are some of the present themes within the Like A Coffee community, just to name a few.

Our goal is to gather the different competencies to find innovative solutions to smarten people’s lives.

Mentoring Approach

Grow your know-how thanks to the support of the community.

The mentoring work within the Like A Coffee community is carried out passionately towards the talent coming from the universities. As an example, in the following video Antonio Torre, one of our mentors, explains our approach.

For the talent accessing the Like A Coffee community, professional growth means learning by doing and by working on our projects to apply his or her university knowledge and, at the same time, to implement the acquired eLearning knowledge during the Like A Coffee “Talent to Expert Journey”.

Projects can be experimental, as the Preso project where Giuseppe, as a new talent, is currently working on its mobile app development which goes hand in hand with the IoT device.

Growth means also developing a final thesis together with a concrete project which could turn out to be useful for the talent professional process.

This is the case of Luigi Cutolo, who is about to graduate in Information Technology at the University of Salerno.

Talent to Expert journey

The importance of the learning journey to deal with the practical world of work

When the talent is about to graduate or has just graduated, he or she generally does not feel he or she has the necessary practical experience to face the present world of work. The Like A Coffee community is active to this end by supporting the young talent during his or her professional growth process by means of a dedicated learning path in order to help him or her become an expert developer to work on customer projects on an international scale.

On 8th November we will be at the Università di Salerno where Professor Vittorio Scarano hosts us to present the Like A Coffee community and the projects we are currently carrying out.

Talent build-up during the Preso development [VIDEO]

Giuseppe is one of the junior developers we met at the beginning of this year.

His Master IT studies are about to end and at the same time he’s living a working experience following the Talent journey within the Like A Coffee community.

 

In this video Giuseppe tells us about his overall experience during the development project of the Preso device and app (see Preso website link!…) as well as with the other team members, such as designers, project managers, IoT specialists and testers.

 

A  real 360° experience for someone like him who is coming from the university world.

He then highlights the paramount role and added value of his mentors during his build-up path.

The following video has been shot at a live coding session when our Preso team members met in person to work side by side.

“Even though we are remote web developers, we meet in person from time to time for working together” says Antonio Torre, mentor of the Like A Coffee community.

How was the idea of Preso developed? [VIDEO]

Preso was designed by Attilio starting from an Italian common specific need: the control of the home power consumption while the high-consuming household appliances are on.

Attilio thought how complicated could be for Granny Teresa to tackle this issue and, therefore, proposed his team to develop Preso and its App.

An easy-to-use IoT tool able to control the home energy consumption as well as the monitoring of each connected device.

Preso has become far more than an opportunity: it is an ally for those who crave to convert their house in a “smart” one with little money, according to one’s needs.

 

As Attilio says, Preso is a hackable open device and can be improved or enhanced starting from the original version developed by the Like A Coffee team.
