This past week I went to Copenhagen for my third GR8Conf EU in a row (and the second one as a speaker) and I also stayed a couple more days sight-seeing the city. These were my favourite sessions:
The last week of February I went to Montréal to speak at ConFoo. It was my first time in Canada and I was really excited about the trip and the conference, but before I tell you about the conference, let me share with you a little story.
Last week I went to Washington DC to speak at the SpringOne 2GX conference. I have to admit that I was really excited about the conference but, at the same time, I was nervous because I had no less than three talks!
El pasado fin de semana del 29 de mayo asistí a una convención un poco especial: la Feria de la economía verde, solidaria y del bien común, en Málaga. Como podréis adivinar por el nombre, no se trata de nada relacionado con la informática, específicamente, sino de empresas que tratan de hacer las cosas de otra manera.
Last past week I’ve been in Copenhagen for the GR8Conf. It has been the second time I went to the conference but this time I went to present two talks.
The conference “started” on Monday with the traditional speakers dinner and I had a very nice dinner talking with Daniel, his girlfriend Hillary and Jenn. Then during the 3 days at the conference I also talked with some interesting people such as Sascha, Burt, Søren (the GR8Conf organizer), Noam, Guillaume, Ryan, Vladimír, Göran and many more.
Last week, Kaleidos shipped an expedition composed by Juan de la Cruz, Ramiro Sánchez and Xavier Julian (me!) to attend a brand new conference in Manchester: UpFrontConf. The team grabbed their baggage to the too cold, too windy and too rainy northern city and prepared for the mission: do not miss a bit about some of the most interesting faces out there and bring back a full bundle of ideas to apply to our projects.
The past week I’ve been in Krakow for the GeeCON conference. It’s a very big Java/JVM conference with more than 1200 attendees, 3 days packed with talks and 5 tracks every day!
This past week I’ve been in Barcelona on my fourth stop of the IvánOnTour2015 speaking at the Spring IO conference. After being an attendee for the last three editions in Madrid now it was my turn to go back again but as a speaker.
Kaleidos does not have a formal policy on promoting diversity in the IT workplace but it’s time we had one. While we start an internal debate on that, we wanted to share with all of you our approach to sponsoring events and conferences both by Kaleidos and our spin-out Taiga.
Last week I spoke at jDays 2015 in Gothenburg with the talk Grails and the real-time world.
This was my first FOSDEM and the first in which there was a track of design. I’ve been very lucky :). As an Open Source designer it represents one of the most important events of the year, not only because of the importance of the FOSDEM in our philosophy but also because of the opportunity to see me surrounded by designers with my own concerns. So let’s started!
Este ha sido mi primer Fosdem y he tenido la suerte de que fuera el primero en el que hubiera un track sobre diseño. Como diseñador Open Source supone uno de los eventos más importantes del año, no sólo por la importancia que tiene el FOSDEM en nuestra filosofía de trabajo, sino también por la oportunidad de verme rodeado por diseñadores/as con mis mismas inquietudes. Pero empecemos por el principio.
La gente de idealista ha tenido una fantástica idea y nos han inspirado a hacer lo mismo.
There is no need to introduce Codemotion, an event that happens in some cities in Europe where development communities meet in one space for a two day conference with different programming languages and tracks for every developer’s need and flavour. One of them takes place in Madrid where you will easily find most of the Kaleidos team. However, the main event was born and is still being hosted by the incredible city of Rome.
So, there I was, invited by the organization of the event: Codemotion Rome 2014.
