Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Registration 🛎️
  • 19:00 – 19:30 Revisiting “Smashing the stack”: A GDB story – by Cristian Bidea (Software Engineer)

A look at what changed in the security landscape from when the seminal paper was published, through the lens of a timeless tool: The GNU Debugger!

  • 19:30 – 20:00 Consensual Surveillance: GPS/GSM monitoring watch – by Mircea Hasegan (Software Engineer)

Regardless of the species, parents need to take care of their young ones, make sure they are not exposed to high-risk situations, and can always cry for help. It is the basic need for safety. Traditionally this was achieved by imposing restrictions on the playground area, having an adult or bigger brother around, and being in the reach in case of danger. New devices have come along, offering attractive features for keeping children safe: cellular phones with parental control features, tracking devices, and wristwatches with GPS tracking and phone functionality.

  • 20:00 – 21:00 Q&A, networking, pizza & beer 🍕 🍺

Py@Codette 4.1

Do you want to learn about Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning but don’t know where to start? Py@Codette 4.1 is an introductory workshop full of interactive teaching and fun challenges! RSVP now and join them on November 16, for the 2nd edition of the workshop where the focus will be on understanding algorithms and the thinking behind. 

About the event

You will not deal with Py @ Codette v4 to learn Python, but you will use it for the practical part of the workshop. So, participants need to have had previous tangents with the area of Computer Science and, ideally, have written code in Python before or (if not), be able to learn the “syntax” of a new programming language. Hurry up, registrations are open until November 9, 5 pm! 

This event will be held in Romanian, and you can find more details on their Facebook event.

Introduction to Design Thinking

The time for the 3rd Tech Startup School meetup has come, and this time is about Design Thinking. RSVP here to save your front row spot on November 13, starting at 18:30!

About the event

Design thinking is an iterative process which seeks to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and identify alternative solutions, which were unseen beforehand. It is a solution-based approach to problem-solving while being both a framework and a set of tools.

So, for the 3rd Tech Startup School meetup, our friends prepared a crash course in Design Thinking. In max. 2 hours, you will learn the process and reshape a product or experience with a focus on humans and their needs, through prototyping and testing.

Your guide will be Tudor Juravlea, who is the Design Thinking Society co-founder and an experienced facilitator of design thinking processes for more than 5 years. Tudor applied both User Experience Design and Service Design on real projects in telecom, banking, and energy. He also has NGO and startup experience.

Tudor loves tech and creators but knows that while the software isn’t built to last long term, solutions are. Tech can only be disruptive when users are at its center. So the biggest disease for any business is to forget about its clients. Tudor believes that’s also the biggest risk for humanity: to forget what makes us human in the first place – childlike curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.

Dragos Nicolaescu, along with his co-hosts Alice Teodorescu & Andrei Tudose, welcome you on November 13th, to a new evening of learning, fun, and networking.

Don’t forget to book your place in advance!

Originally, it was product search, but even that goes beyond pure keyword search: autocomplete, did-you-mean, facets, recommendations, more-like-this are all features found in E-commerce. Then there’s time-series analytics, meant to derive insights from logs, metrics, social media, and everything else with a timestamp.

    We will begin with a demo to introduce both search engines and see where they’re similar and where they differ. Then, we’ll discuss different use-cases and how you can solve them using Elasticsearch and/or Solr.

Ionel will be presenting a modern web framework built for Node.js, written in Typescript, that allows you to build fully-featured web applications. The framework is best suited for small-sized to enterprise-level apps. Most of the core packages it uses were built from scratch in order to preserve the performance of the framework. This was done to ensure that all the features you are using benefit from the latest language features. This framework’s source code is built around the developer’s expectations: it is modern, clean and beautiful. Also, the tools it’s providing are everything a developer needs to build his next awesome project.

We will use Vue.js to create the front-end and, as back-end, we will use a GraphQL API provided out-of-the-box by Modex Blockchain Database (Modex BCDB)
