    Tomáš Kocifaj: Základy komunikace s klientem aneb Smolíček a jeskyňky

    WordCamp Bratislava 2016Speaker: Tomáš Kocifaj

    May 12, 2016 — Přednášku budu cílit na obecnou komunikaci s klienty, která je často denním chlebem menších i středně velkých developerů. Ve větších korporacích tuto část přebírají obvykle projektový manažeři. Ve své přednášce ukážu základní řízení projektů, na co musíte při komunikaci myslet, co Vás může posunout k získání lepších klientů (zakázek) ale také to, co Vás ve většině případů na jistotu zařadí do kategorie “odpad”. Vždy jsem byl zastánce, že dobré vztahy s klientem jsou lepší, než tisíc dobře napsaných smluv. Je potřeba si ale uvědomit, že vše má své hranice a my i klient bychom se jimi měli řídit. Na závěr ukážu některé nástroje pro řízení, které používám například já v rámci našeho teamu.

    Łukasz Korowicki i Michał Strześniewski: Style Guide Driven Development, czyli jak wykonać więcej za mniej

    WordCamp Krakow 2015Speakers: Łukasz Korowicki, Michał Strześniewski

    January 5, 2016 — Proces wytwarzania stron internetowych potrafi być bardzo złożony, przez co osiągnięcie zamierzonego celu może zależeć od wielu czynników. Praca pod presją czasu powoduje, iż każda osoba odpowiedzialna za jeden z etapów stara się go wykonać możliwie najszybciej.
    Style Guide Driven Development (SGDD) to wzorzec projektowy, dzięki któremu kolejne etapy projektu zajmują mniej czasu niż poprzednie.
    Często zapominamy, że niewielkie problemy, które pojawią się na etapie tworzenia grafiki potrafią urosnąć do rangi błędów krytycznych tuż przed oddaniem projektu. Rozkładając odpowiedzialność za projekt w sposób bardziej równomierny i dostosowany do kompetencji uczestników projektu, uzyskujemy projekt kompletny, któremu do perfekcji brakuje możliwie mało.
    SGDD to proces dzięki któremu nie tylko programiści mają ułatwione zadanie, ale także specjaliści od SEO oraz UX.
