Unconference: ITAKE

A few weeks ago, I received from Ovidiu Matan the invitation to participate, from TSM, in I.T.A.K.E. I had been waiting for this event since autumn, ever since I had a conversation during IT Days with Alex Bolboaca about the "unconference" concept, which I found very interesting. I admit having been a little reserved, given the fact that a "Software craftsmanship" conference had been announced, a movement I do not really resonate with. However, in the program, there were also a few presentations regarding functional programming, and I was hoping to meet more people interested in this subject. Therefore, I didn't hesitate and I accepted immediately.

What Is Really TDD? (II)

Every once in a while, I have conversations with people about what really is TDD. Since I built a certain knowledge on the topic in time not only by using it but also by explaining it to others, I decided to write this article that details my definite view on what TDD is. I hope you’ll find it useful.

Cone Architecture

"The universe is built on a plan the profound symmetry of which is somehow present in the inner structure of our intellect." - Paul Valery. Clean Architecture is great! Let's try that again…Clean Architecture is beautiful! Clean Architecture is symmetric! Clean Architecture is natural! Clean Architecture should really be common sense! Clean Architecture is the structure that naturally emerges when truly applying DIP: "High level modules should not depend on low level modules. Both should depend on abstractions"

Techsylvania 2015 - On the Product Managers in IT

When I arrived to Techsylvania, at the Students’ Arts Center, everybody was still in the break between the panels, though I was a little late. I met some of my online colleagues and we exchanged a few words on the event. They appreciated a lot the quality of the content they had received in the two days and told me that their expectations had been exceeded.
