The 20th EDIT Summer School Wraps Up

16-08-Tue

We are proud to announce that the 20th EDIT Summer School has been successfully completed. Organized by Comtrade, EDIT 2016 gathered more than 100 students across 7 different campuses.

Spanning Belgrade, Kragujevac, Ljubljana, Maribor, Banja Luka, Sarajevo and Dublin, EDIT Summer School promoted experience-based learning on a truly international level.

With digital transformation taking the IT industry by storm, EDIT participants got to grips with topics such as mobility as a service, Internet of Things and Augmented reality. In a fun-filled atmosphere, students have taken on various complex projects, displaying innovative thinking, creativity and problem solving skills.

The aim was to provide students with hands-on experience of working on IT projects and help them jump start a career in the tech industry. They were encouraged to work together, share knowledge and take change of projects and teams. Besides classroom learning, the Summer School also involved a number of team building activities.

Compared to previous years, EDIT 2016 attracted a greater number of female participants. We were extremely pleased to see a diverse pool talent, which is fundamental for the successful growth of the IT industry.

Another #ShareITSarajevo meetup alert! Share It Sarajevo team, in co-operation with Bosnia Agile, will organize a game during the meetup and reward the lucky ones with two tickets to #BADay2017 conference! Check it out: Bosnia Agile Day 2017!

Many companies today deliver software developed by teams distributed in multiple geographical locations. There is a real need for it since organizations get more and more global and it should not be avoided. And how is agile affected by this? Is working in distributed teams anti-agile? In this kind of teams, communication can be a real challenge. Face-to-face communication has no substitute and agile development depends on constant collaboration. We are not able to have a shared whiteboard and truly collaborate together. Bad connections and different time zones are just part of the problem. And culture differences in working and communicating can come as both benefit and a drawback. In this presentation, we will explore some of the drawbacks as well as benefits of working in a distributed agile team and some of our best tips and methods that helped us to increase team productivity. We would like to share with you some of the real case examples from our experience in being part of distributed agile teams on several international projects over the years. We would like this to be more an interaction between us and the audience, not only us talking to you. That’s why we would like to highlight the challenges that can arise in distributed agile teams, explore some of the strategies to address those challenges, and show you how to turn work in a distributed team in your favor.

Dear students and friends from Bosnia, we invite you to join our colleagues at their next #ShareITSarajevo #Meetup. You can find more at this Facebook Event and you can also RSVP here: https://goo.gl/gWLWgK

As a professional, one should stand behind the code that he/she writes and guarantee that it is working once it is out and the way to do that is to test it. By now most of the developers have heard about unit testing frameworks and when we look at an example it is trivial and easy to understand. The problem is when we try to write it in production code we often fail. During this talk, we will point out a few things that make code untestable and try to demonstrate ways to overcome these issues. About the Lecturer: Aleksandar Dostic finished Theoretical Computer Science at the University of Sarajevo. He’s been working last 6 years on a software solution for speeding up and automation of the deployment process and auto-provisioning of virtual machines mainly in Java. As a speaker, he was invited to the University of Groningen and JavaCro Conference to present a solution for fast deployment of different service versions, on the complex private cloud environment.
