Stresul la locul de muncă: schimbare și adaptare

Schimbările de la locul de muncă sunt cel mai adesea însoțite de stres, care ne poate influența calitatea vieții și performanța. În cadrul acestui workshop, vom încerca să înțelegem mai bine factorii care stau la baza stresului în contextul de muncă și să identificăm soluții practice care să ne ajute să le facem față mai ușor. Împreună vom discuta despre gestionarea și acceptarea stresului și vom exersa aspecte care țin de comunicarea eficientă.

The taste of startup success is tantalizing. All you need is an idea, a team, some funding and stern determination to make it work, right? Well, all that, and more.

What about timing, design, MVP, stability, scalability? How do you make your product useful, delightful and desirable? We at Halcyon Mobile know the A’s to these Q’s, and we’re happy to share them with you. Join us on Zoom!

Made in Cluj, Used by millions – 2 projects, one goal: a better customer experience

Presentation 1:Applications’ ecosystem renewal in Cloud – automate more and gain product development capacity

On a daily basis we’re facing a pretty large number of tasks that must be recurrently performed, tasks which ask development teams to redirect time and energy away from the innovative work. For teams owning a large amount of applications, such recurrent tasks – altough fully entitled to keep an estate fresh – might become a sisific job – such as monthly Operating Systems refreshes, recurrent frameworks upgrades (Java, libraries, etc), security and monitoring agents upgrades.

Employing automation to resolve such work items would relief teams and allow them to focus on novelty with the right feeling that the running applications are not left behind.

Removing the time consuming tasks from teams is not a saving, it is capacity that can be used for Product Development or Innovation activities.

We aim to present present you with an insight about how we’ve started to resolve this problem.

Speaker: Cristina Gutiu, Senior Delivery Manager

Speaker: Artur Cepuc, Associate DevOps Engineer 

Presentation 2: Real-time personalized customer interaction at scale

This is the challenge we set out to solve. You will learn how we have built PaddyPowerBetfair’s high-performance promotional platform. You will see how this transformation has enabled marketing to continuously innovate and apply timely,

Fuckup Nights Cluj Napoca: Developers Edition

Are you a mid-level or senior developer? If so, you’ve been around for a while, worked on multiple projects by now and got better by day.

All of your acquaintances call you when their computer crashes or when there’s something wrong with their internet connection, right? And maybe your parents or grandparents still worry from time to time, concerned that you spend too much time with your eyes glued to the screen. But still, we believe there is more to your experience than meets the eye and more to your story. We are most certain that what got you where you are right now is pure motivation, passion and perseverance. But we also know it wasn’t always easy. We believe in constant improvement, in trial and error and learning by doing. That’s why we are more than sure that there have been moments when you wanted to give up, flip a table or destroy a computer.

And we want to hear all about it! About how you’ve f*cked-up in the past and most importantly, what you’ve learned from it. What made you the developer you are today. We’ve all been there, but no one likes to talk about it. But thinking outside the box and getting out of your comfort zone are the only things that mark true evolution, the true milestones. We are creating this safe space for you, from developers who’ve been through trial and error too, to you. A space to share stories, to learn from the experience of others, to grow even more and learn to view the next failed moment as another step of the process, another step in the right direction. If you feel like we do, join us to the real Fuckup Nights Cluj Napoca: Developers Edition!

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. It started in 2012 in Mexico City when some friends gathered and started talking about their failures. They’ve all realized that it is revealing to tell and be told stories about failure. Therefore, they’ve got the impulse to act better in the future in order to succeed. Each month, in events across the globe from over 100 countries, brave speakers get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all. Fuckup Nights Cluj Napoca has been organized by ClujHub, since March 2018.

Make your dreams habits come true & Scavenger Hunt

We all have goals and good intentions but why oh why is so darn hard to replace a nasty old habit with a new, better one. Let’s dive together into habit formation. These new insights into habit formation will serve you in product creation and in your daily lives too.

You will meet our wonderful colleagues:

Roxana: Cognitive Data Specialist @ Macadamian Technologies

Having traversed academia, healthcare and industry, and trained as a cognitive scientist, I tackle research questions from various lenses striving to provide comprehensive, unique, and data-driven insights. I am a sought-after public speaker and facilitator counting over 30 conference presentations and speaking invitations, and 4 undergraduate courses on topics centered around human cognition and research approaches.

When not in front of the computer, I enjoy the solitude of my balcony and garden, trying to recreate a bit of the magic from “home” where I spent summers walking across vineyards with a whistle to send away starlings, and falls picking hectares of grapes to make magic.

And

Caroline: Principal Interaction Designer @ Macadamian Technologies

Having spent the last 14 years in interaction and product design, I have a wide perspective on creating meaningful experiences. I have designed multiple web-based, mobile, desktop and responsive software solutions, leading the design from conception through implementation and delivery. My focus has always been on working with cross-functional teams in order to find the proper balance between addressing end-users needs and meeting the business needs and goals of my clients.

Whether landscaping my yard surrounded by wood, trying out new restaurants or travelling to scuba diving destinations, I’m always keeping an eye out for colourful, harmonious design elements in nature and architecture.

Adventure is waiting when the presentation is done! Let your inner sleuth scavenge the city for clues, solve the mystery and win the prizes! We’ll publish more details on our Facebook page soon. Would you also like to attend the offline scavenger hunt around the city?
