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 )
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.
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!
