The favourite events for IT beginners are back!
During the upcoming session of BUGinnings in IT, we will hear from two top experts: the CTO of SoftwareMill and the Senior Scala Developer from VirtusLab.
They’ll share lessons from their successful careers and introduce us to the world of open source software.
BUGinnnings in IT is a series of events presenting stories about the first career steps in the tech industry.
Specialists with many years of experience come on stage to share their advice, setbacks and lessons learned gained throughout their professional journey. They also explain how to enter their field of specialisation.
Come and get inspired!
Open source is in essence, multiple communities of developers working and helping each other out while working on freely available source code. This could be a great place to start your IT journey, however, it can also be quite overwhelming and not always a great experience. I’d like to discuss some rules and ideas that can improve your odds of getting into open source.
It’s a common story, programming in Logo/Basic as a child, through Pascal and C when growing up, and ending up as a “professional” software developer. But there have been a couple of twists along the way. I ended up doing things (out of my free will!) that I’d never have expected to do when I started. Was it worth it? What might your options be? (btw: I didn’t pivot to herding sheeps in Bieszczady, I’m still doing quite a lot of programming)
