The Sensor Swarm and Understanding The Virtual Memory

Join us to learn how to create your own temperature monitoring sensors 🌡️ and to talk about Virtual Memory – the basics and advanced topics. RSVP here to save your front row spot on February 17, starting at 18:30!


About the event

We’ll take you through the challenges you’ll face when trying to deploy a large scale number of IoT sensors throughout a company’s working environment. From building, programming, and securing the devices, there are a lot of interesting details to work out for a successful long-term solution.

There are a few systems out there that do not use the benefits of the Virtual Memory, like some embedded systems which do not need isolation between applications, but for those that do use the Virtual Memory, the performance of the applications might be impacted by the overhead introduced by it. The second talk will tackle the basic concepts and a few advanced topics of the Virtual Memory.


About the speakers

Radu Andritoiu is a Software Engineer that’s been with Ixia for almost three years now. Radu’s work on multi-layered software applications for Ixia Network Packet Brokers has been remarkable. He’s got tech skills that span across Java, C and C++, and he’s also implemented a few Linux kernel modules.

Alexandru Ghita is a Senior Software Engineer that has been with Ixia for almost 10 years now. He started with .NET C# and WPF on desktop applications, both UI and middleware. Afterwards he moved to web applications on Linux, using Java (Jetty, Guice, etc.) and Sencha ExtJS. Alex is also familiar with databases, having worked for some projects with PostgreSQL and ElasticSearch. When he has a few hours to spare, he’s very much into gaming, electronics and DIY.

Cosmin Chenaru is a senior programmer and has been with Ixia for eight years, but not as contiguous as the Virtual Memory is. After two years of writing software for embedded systems, he realized that Networking and Virtualization is his true love. His passions include anything electronic with at least one transistor in it, playing video games and watching old movies with his kids (movies like The Terminator, Men In Black).

Join this Blockchain Romania meetup, to see what’s the role of trading in the crypto ecosystem. RSVP here to save your front row spot on December 4, starting at 18:30!

About the event

Trading is a perennial hot topic in crypto. Even since the first Bitcoin trade (10000 BTC for 2 pizza) people have been trying to figure out the market mechanisms that are behind any particular coin price. For this edition of our meetup, we’ll try to figure out
– what are the particularities or similarities between crypto markets and other “traditional” currencies and/or commodities?
– are there instruments (such as Technical Analysis) that can give insights into why prices are behaving in a particular way?
– is there anything that affects price except supply and demand?
– are the current price setting environments (i.e. exchanges) transparent enough in order to make the available tools efficient or are there nefarious activities that affect the said prices?

About the speakers

Armi Goldman – trader, behavioral and intelligence business consultant

Sergiu Draganus – founder of several cryptos (and non-crypto related businesses): CryptoCoin.PRO, GeoRanker, Swiss Crypto Exchange ( SRO/VQF regulated Swiss-based cryptocurrency exchange) and co-organizer of Romania Blockchain Summit


Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Registration

November BucharestJS Meetup

BucharestJS is back with a discussion about the latest trends in building Web Apps that scale, and some functional Javascript idioms. RSVP here to save your front row spot on November 27, starting at 18:30!

About the speakers

Daniel Popescu – Computer Scientist, full-stack developer @Adobe for almost 9 years now. He has started working as an ActionScript developer and over the past 9 years, he went through a lot of technologies and frameworks both on the frontend (web and mobile) and backend. Currently, in his day-to-day job, he works with JavaScript, TypeScript, Angular, React, Redux, GraphQL, NodeJS, Java, Objective-C, and Swift. He likes being involved in the full product flow starting with writing the code, testing it, moving the product through the CI/CD pipeline, deployment, and monitoring. Huge fan of unit tests, end to end tests and automation in general.

James Miles – Engineering Lead @Virtual Gaming Worlds from Australia (yep, where the kangaroos live!). He enjoys being a computer programmer because he gets to work in a team, using both logic and creative brains simultaneously to solve problems and build things. For 15 years he worked on enterprise systems in C# and now he works in a team that builds casino games in JavaScript, Node & Java.

Matt James – Chief Technology officer @Virtual Gaming Worlds from Australia. His passion from an early age has been working with people and software. So his current CTO role combines both passions every day! One of his areas of interest is how Functional Programming has influenced and shaped modern imperative programming such as in the front-end community recently.

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Meet & Greet
  • 19:00 Latest trends in building Web Apps that scale by Daniel Popescu, full-stack developer @Adobe
  • 19:45 Coding In Interviews by James Miles – Engineering Lead @Virtual Gaming Worlds
    Abstract: have you ever had to write code in an interview? Did you crack under the pressure? Is it even a good idea to make people code in such a high-pressure environment? In this session, I’ll aim to address these questions and provide a basic methodology to help guarantee success in your next coding interview!
  • 20:15 Functional Javascript Idioms by Matt James – CTO @Virtual Gaming Worlds
    Abstract: Javascript began as a functional language called Mocha, but was released in Beta under the name LiveScript in Netscape in 1995. Java and Object-Oriented Programming were the big things at the time so they knew it needed to have the word “Java” in it, despite not having been based at all off the Java language. Coming from its functional roots, functions are first-class citizens in Javascript, and other features like “map” and anonymous functions have given rise to a growing community of Javascript developers who are adopting functional idioms in their code. Redux and React really drove this home by having functional concepts at the core of these frameworks. This talk will be on how you can apply functional concepts to your code and design – and get some real benefits out of doing so!
  • 20:45 – 21:15 Networking over 🍕& 🍺
