Seven Personality Types of Software Developer - revisited

I had the opportunity to give the presentation Seven Personality Types of Software Developer twice so far. The presentation is based on my previous post. First of all, the session was surprisingly very interesting for developers. Despite its soft nature, I have received a lot of feedback from the audience during and after the session.

Hidden motivation ingredient

There are plenty of books about motivation. How to motivate yourself and others. We give ourselves something we like after finishing a difficult task. It can be a chocolate bar or an hour of video gaming. We try to motivate out employees with many benefits: free healthcare, informal Fridays, pizza days, in-house conferences etc. At the beginning it works quite fine, but as we go the effects are weaker and weaker.

Tiny git repositories automation to save 5 minutes daily

I'm a big fun of automation. I would even say 'what can be automated, can be forgotten' and you can focus in important things. This post happen to be next in new series called "Automation". The series came out somehow, I didn't plan it. It just seem that there are things I would like to share :)

Lonely .NET dev in Java devs nest - Confitura 2014 conference

Last Saturday I have attended Java related conference - Confitura. My main goal was to see IT world from another site. I think that every developer should concentrate not only on his area of expertise but also stay in touch with overall trends. That's why we have nHibernate or Nancy in .NET world - leader of those projects had to know or heard and the original implementation in other languages. It's like "Think global, act local" statement.

.NET Developers Poland FB group - the beginning

Over the last several years I was observing how software engineering communities evolve and grow around the world. People join communities to be stronger, to share knowledge, to search for solutions to their problems or just for fun. At this point, I missed perhaps 100 other reasons, but there is always a purpose. Often the need is to stick with new technologies and similar people. They need a place for that, a habitat...

DevDay 2012 Conference in Krakow, Poland

Awesome awesome awesome! This phrase describes DevDay 2012 perfectly! Sessions conducted by Scott Hanselman, Greg Young, Sebastien Lambla, Mark Rendle, Martin Mazur, Rob Ashton and Antek Piechnik at this conference were just amazing! Great balance between technical and non-technical information. I have expected some level but seeing (for example) Scott Hanselman sharing his secrets of sharpening the saw was a nice surprise.
