CodeCamp 2016 is one-day event, organized by Macedonian .NET User Group, a local organization dedicated to building the community of .NET developers in Macedonia and supported by many local companies. Its main goals are:
- Providing a common channel of communication where local .NET developers can find out about local .NET related news, information, job opportunities and career development.
- Providing a regular location for local .NET developers to meet and network.
- Providing learning opportunities to improve the skills of local .NET developers.
- ...and have fun while doing it!
The participants had the chance to participate in lectures from 22 local tech influencers, on 4 separate tracks. With sessions on the green track, our CEO Hajan Selmani and our CTO Bojan Veljanovski shared their deep insights from the field.
Hajan was talking about "BEING DEVELOPER IN THE MICROSOFT UNIVERSE" and what developers must know to accelerate their own progress and get the most out of the Microsoft Universe. Developers have their universes (technology platforms and stacks) where they build their planets (software apps and services). With obvious reasons, living in the Microsoft Universe have been primary choice to most of the developer nowadays. From Visual Studio, to ASP.NET and .NET (core), Microsoft Azure, Cross-Platform Development with Xamarin, Tools and Tips, ways of thinking and awareness of currently available forces within this universe.
Bojan'spresentation "MODULAR SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN" was intended for participants to gain a whole new way of thinking about programming, reasoning and designing great software. In this talk, Bojan shared an alternative way to develop .NET applications in a more modular way by embracing emergent design techniques. The main idea is to decompose applications into small and reusable modules, in order to achieve high maintainability, low technical debt and prevent the ‘Big Ball of Mud’ creeping in.
After all the presentations, there was a panel discussion on the topic "SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT WITH MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY STACK - PRESENT AND FUTURE".
Our company stand during the event was a place where the participants could stop by and ask about our job or internship positions, to get some of our presents or to "Find the bug" and win a prize. It was such a great experience, meeting all those young enthusiasts and future tech leaders and influencers. For those who couldn't come, this is a small gallery from the event:
Until the next CodeCamp, stay hungry for knowledge and personal development!
