Financial and legal management for startups with Andrei Rosca & Nicoleta Almaj

April comes with a twist and two important subjects for the startuppers out there: financial and legal management. RSVP and let’s meet on April 22, starting at 18:50!


About the speakers

Andrei Rosca lived the entrepreneurial roller-coaster since he was 17. More than enough years to realize that excels, P&Ls, cashflows are critical for a business, while keeping sane, both physically and mentally. Also, he disliked accounting since forever, so in the beginning, he searched for classes like “Financial Management for Non-Financial Managers”. That’s what the workshop is all about – a short introduction into startup financial control tools, from a person who is not an accountant, CFO or financial consultant. He is an entrepreneur sharing his experiences. Both pleasant and unpleasant.

Nicoleta Almaj is the Managing partner of Almaj, Iordache SCA, technology and energy industries-specialized law firm. She has been a business lawyer for more than 15 years, and her practice is currently focused on new technologies. Together with her colleagues, she is working on legal issues regarding transactional matters, M&A, IP, online platforms, FinTech, blockchain, complex IT contract, app development etc.


Event agenda

  • 18:50 – 19:00 – “Log in”
  • 19:00 – 20:00 – Track. Analyze. Change. (Andrei Rosca)

“I have an entrepreneurial DNA and in the last years, I’ve presented myself as a change strategist. Ergo, I help people change. Some run entrepreneurial organizations that also change the world. And, whether we like it or not, changing the world starts (or ends) with a P&L.”

  • 20:00 – 21:00 – Legal made easy for Tech Startups (Nicoleta Almaj)

“I propose to the Tech Startup community, an easy, palatable and business-oriented introduction to critical legal tools. The necessary tools to avoid or solve the most frequent risks that entrepreneurs encounter when developing a tech company.”

  • 21:00 – 21:10 – “Log out”

Event agenda

  • 18:00 – 18:30 Getting together
  • 18:30 – 19:20 Kafka Streams – a database inside out, Miron Brezai, Software Architect @ eSolutions

Kafka Streams is the easiest way to write scalable stream processing microservices.

Basically is about processing and joining infinite database tables.

[Event canceled] Be mobile! IWD 2020 by Women Techmakers Romania

Women Techmakers Romania is inviting the community to share their superpowers – those special qualities that make you shine. RSVP and let’s meet on March 12, starting at 18:30!


Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 18:50 Registration
  • 18:50 – 19:00 Opening from the community organizers
  • 19:00 – 19:30 Own your path | Roxana Raicu
  • 19:30 – 19:45 Qualitative data analysis | Catalina Dumitru

Working across disciplines and cultures is complex, particularly in project teams. Building and maintaining trust between team members alleviates the challenges of project work by increasing perceptions of similarity, reducing information complexity, managing multiple reporting, and developing team reflexivity. By analyzing interview and observation data from several project teams in Germany and Singapore, I offer a description of trust practices that build and maintain trust in teams in different cultures.

  • 19:45 – 20:15 Quality guidelines for mobile apps | Rafaela Voiculescu

Two of my passions are business and programming, two areas that I discovered distinctively: the former in university and the latter almost a decade later. The decision I took to pick up programming lead me to work for one of the most well-known tech companies, Facebook, as a Solutions Engineer a role that constantly challenges me and offers me countless opportunities to grow in both areas. In my current role I work closely with top gaming companies that integrate in-app advertising across the two mobile platforms: Android and iOS. On the business side some of my past roles took me on a deep dive into consulting, logistics, finance and sales. My superpower is receiving and acting on feedback.

[Event canceled] Bucharest FP #61 — Implementing IMP in K and Haskell

BucharestFP invites you to talk about the contributions to the world of formal verification, using the open-source K framework. RSVP and let’s meet on March 10, starting at 18:45!


About the event

This talk will be a brief introduction to K by example and by comparison with Haskell. We’ll start by discussing the programming language IMP, with some demonstrations of programs in this language. Then we’ll show how to make an interpreter for this language in Haskell, including a parser and evaluation engine.

Finally, we’ll transition to a K interpreter for this language, and show how in addition to an interpreter, K gives a symbolic execution engine that can be used to do program verification. Any remaining time can be used to try things live and for further discussions about what verification is.


About the speaker
Everett Hildenbrandt is a Formal Modelling Engineer and Product Owner at Runtime Verification, Inc (a software quality assurance firm). He currently works mostly with KEVM, a K semantics of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) https://github.com/kframework/evm-semantics. He believes strongly in a semantics-first approach to designing and building the tooling around programming languages.

Kotlin, a language to rule DSLs – Kotlin is a great language for creating internal DSLs. Although it is statically typed, some of its features, such as type safe builders, extension functions, operator overloading, implicit receivers, etc. make the creation of internal DSLs a rewarding experience. We will explore some existing DSLs, and look under the hood to see how we can tailor the same principles to our needs.
