For past 4 years now, few days in September were reserved for developer fest - DevDay :) This year was different, but only a little. So as hopefully everyone is already aware, DevDay is no more, but Michał and Rafał who were responsible for all previous editions had started new conference called DevConf. And if you met those Guys, you know you can’t go wrong with an event organized by them!
Recently I haven’t written any thoughts about books that I read. Time to get back to this. It’s kind of funny how my book choices changed over the years. From very specific positions, treating about C#, ASP MVC, RabbitMQ etc. I moved my focus towards the universal knowledge. So I was reading ‘Clean Code’, Gang of Four Design Patterns, books about algorithms and so on. As I still like to read those technical book, I enjoy another set of titles on my bookshelf: self and business development related.
Software development is not a piece of cake. While our languages and libraries are easier and more capable year by year, we still struggle with how to manage the whole process. So we leverage all kinds of techniques like short iterations, retrospectives etc. to improve that process, make it better step by step. But anyone trying to improve something will tell you that first you need to measure something to see if you can make progress.
DevDay delivered again! I could actually stop right here, as above sums up whole experience pretty good :) As you can guess I was attending this years edition of DevDay and it was really really good ! To foster HappyTeam feedback culture here are few words about this years DevDay :) Usually I don’t write about venue, food and all that ‘technical’ stuff, as conference is to get inspired, empowered.
