It’s been a long time since I have posted on my blog. In the meantime, I had the pleasure and honor to be a speaker at one of the most innovative and one of a kind conferences – #Tarabica17 and KulenDayz 2017. For both conferences, I was holding a lecture with my dear friend Catalin Gheorghiu. It was named “Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Making Your First Robot, But Were Afraid To Ask”.
This is a one day, free tech conferences organized by Microsoft Serbia’s community. The conference’s focus is on practical solutions and with that came the idea to show people how to start making robots. Mine and Catalin’s lecture was right after lunch. We had the luck to be in one of the big conference rooms. I was really surprised by the amount of people who showed up. All in all, I think we did good and the audience’s reaction was positive. Catalin and Me hope to show even more next year. Here are some pictures.
To me, this is a unique and special conference. It stands out the most by being different. There’s many advantages in it being a community conference. Instead of keeping people inside conference rooms in formal suits, they focus more on outside open sessions with chalk and talk. Most noteworthy is the food and the friendly people who make whole conference feel like a vacation – refreshing and enjoyable. I feel honored having been picked as a speaker and I hope to be a part of this great conference next year as well.
