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 [part 1] >>

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

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.

Luigi Cutolo / my thesis in DevOps Testing / Talent-Mentor Conversation [part 2]

Over the past year we have followed our talent Luigi Cutolo along his journey to fulfil his dream of becoming a web developer within the Like A Coffee community.

We were there during his experimental project development, the choice of his thesis topic, and in his overall learning path.

Last December Luigi earned his bachelor’s degree in Information Technology.

Follow the presentation delivered by Luigi Cutolo regarding his thesis topic, introduced by his mentor Antonio Torre in the video below: Implementation and Testing of a Microservices Architecture on the Preso project by using the DevOps methodology.

Over the past few months he created the whole infrastructure to be implemented, and then tested and deployed a microservice.

Here some technical specifications: Microservice: NodeJS Application.

Testing: Unit Testing,

Integration Testing and End to End Testing.

Build: Docker Cloud.

Deploy: AWS EC2

Today he is here to tell us how he accomplished his path with us.

His mentor – and Senior developer – Antonio Torre is still by his side in order to support Luigi in his professional growth and to turn him into an expert developer of our community.

If you missed the beginning of Luigi’s thesis path on DevOps testing, here below you can find it:

Now, it’s really time for Luigi to unlock his future!

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.
