Women in Tech Cluj on Mentorship: A Meetup

September 7th, 2018|Categories: Community|Tags: , , , , , |

Ever heard about the women in tech movement around the world? It comes in different names and shapes, from Women in Tech to Women Who Code, and from Girls in Tech to Rails / Django / name-a-framework Girls. The purpose is pretty straightforward: get more women to code and, generally, get them into tech. Their aim is to create a safe space where women can share, learn, grow and support each other in matters of career, development, and so much more. Their first meetups rolled in, and, for their third event, they felt like Mentorship was a topic they

Efficient Code Review Process

September 4th, 2018|Categories: Guides, Technical|Tags: , , , , , , |

Code review is not a new topic, but is for sure one of the most overlooked activities in software development. As software developers we are a team of people that try to get stuff done, and the best teams that get stuff done have open, collaborative cultures based on feedback. For a well functioning team it’s vital that the feedback comes fast, because the cost of fixing a problem in code rises exponentially the further that problem goes undiscovered in the lifecycle of the software. It’s important that teams put in mechanisms to find the problems as early

This summer we had a new Perl internship and a part of it consisted of building an environment monitoring system using Raspberry Pi. In this article I’ll walk you through one of the solutions that you can follow to build something similar. Before getting ahead of myself I have to mention that, during the first week, the interns learned Perl basics, syntax, OOP, regex, they were introduced to Mojolicious, DBI and DBIx, through theory and practice, by doing various exercises. They also worked on an implementation of the “game of life”, a non-recursive and recursive version with pair programming

Following the end of our 4 weeks of Testing Internship, we’ve interviewed three of our interns. Here’s what they had to say: . Q1: How was your learning experience in our Testing Internship? "It was a very nice experience. The presentations were very well done, with relevant topics for each test module. The time given for the exercises related to each of these topics was enough, giving us time to take in this knowledge and put it into practice." "I really enjoyed that you took our opinion into account on what we could improve with this internship

Understanding the Web: Parsing Web Pages Semantically

August 13th, 2018|Categories: Technical|Tags: , , , , |

Using Machine Learning to Parse Web Pages Into Semantic Sections Around two months ago I joined forces with the rest of the teleportHQ team in our mission to reduce friction and eliminate dead ends in the GUI building process, spawning a machine learning (ML) track. Most of the team focuses on building tools for designers and developers to bridge the gap between these two roles by facilitating a common medium and ideation environment. The first tool we developed, aimed at designers, is a Sketch plugin that exports code. You can read about it over here, in an article by our CTO, Criss. Yet

Seven Stages of Action to Improve the User Experience

August 8th, 2018|Categories: UX|Tags: , , |

I once had a discussion with my colleague about “What does it takes to make good UX decisions?”, “What are the principles that could guide us when we form our ideas, concepts and wireframes?”, ”What does it mean to make a good UX decision?" Well, let’s see. I believe a good UX decision should be focused on human beings. I also believe it's important for this decision to be fact based and helpful for users to reach their objectives. Looking for some answers to my questions I found 2 interesting methods that could guide us in making good
