With the goal of constantly improving our technical skills through knowledge-sharing, recently our team has been busy organizing and attending some exciting internal workshops, tech talks, and hackathons aiming to engage people from all seniority levels and departments – Software, QA, DevOps, UI/UX Consultants, etc.
One of the cornerstones of our knowledge-sharing initiatives are the comprehensive workshops where our team has the opportunity to get a hands-on experience recreating real-life scenarios from any phase of the software development life-cycle. Recently, Konstantin Vasilev, Zlatko Rusev, Zhilber Baev, and Silvia Borisova, part of the Engineering Management, Business Analysis, and Quality Assurance teams respectively organized a workshop on the topic of “Agile Software Development with Scrum” split into two parts: a theoretical section and a simulation, which is to be extended with a few more practical sessions.
Our consultants frequently take the stage to deliver insightful talks that dive deep into cutting-edge technologies. For instance, Vladimir Vladimirov, Senior Software Consultant, explored the topic of “No-code backend development with Firebase” highlighting its significance in both mobile and web application development. If you are interested in the topic, you can check out his live presentation at the Polyglot4web conference on October 26th!
Whereas, Rostislav Kazarin, also a Senior Software Consultant, delved into the intricacies of “.NET Dependency Inversion”. He addressed critical questions, including what dependency inversion is and its problem-solving capabilities. The realm of mobile testing was another subject of our recent focus. Kiril Ribarsky, Engineering Manager, took a deep dive into the world of Appium, an open-source framework known for streamlining the testing process for Android and iOS applications.
Internal hackathons have already become a tradition at Accedia. Just last month, we organized the second edition of the Accedia Cybersecurity Hackathon, where contestants were grouped in teams competing against each other in several Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions. These events are not just about coding, but rather a platform for innovative problem-solving and creative collaboration.
If you’re eager to be a part of Accedia’s next technology event, keep an eye on our open positions. We believe that by embracing the diversity of knowledge-sharing, we can keep our teams not just well-versed but also inspired to continue their journey in the ever-evolving world of technology.
