Community-Based Design

Wednesday, October 10, 2018, Berlin

Hosted by Codemotion Berlin Meetups

What happens when we add the unpredictable power of a community to a design process?

About the talks
Community-based design
A design process can be extraordinarily structured, or entirely missing.
Either way, it often requires a remarkable number of conversations with all the stakeholders involved, including people from different departments and the users.
What does happen when we add the unpredictable power of a community?
In this talk, Emanuela will share her thoughts, fears, and views on working for an open-source product.
How Mozilla spreads the open web values (the Dark Funnel example)
During the last year, Mozilla has taken a different approach in engaging volunteers. One of them is the "Dark Funnel Detective Campaign".
This campaign involves volunteers with a passion for the open web. They help keep all Firefox users safe by finding websites that have unauthorized Firefox download buttons.
In this talk, Konstantina will share how volunteers were mobilized and engaged in less than a month and what the common practices are to retain and track the activities of a global group of people.

 

Meetup agenda
∙ 18:30 Doors open
∙ 18:45 Food & drinks
∙ 19:00 Intro by Codemotion & Cisco
∙ 19:15 Emanuela Damiani - Community-based design
∙ 20:00 Konstantina Papadea - How Mozilla spreads the open web values (the Dark Funnel example)

WTMB: JavaScript Crash Course Vol.2 Lecture 1: JavaScript & ES6 Fundamentals

Wednesday, October 10, 2018, Berlin

Hosted by Natalie Pistunovich and 3 others From Women Techmakers Berlin

Details
Welcome to Women Techmakers Berlin's JavaScript autumn course!

The course will be spread over 8 weekly meetings, we will go from learning the fundamentals to having your very own backend application deployed with Docker.
slack.wtmberlin.com #js-crash-course
Maria Ovsyannikova, co-organizer: I am one of the graduates from the first edition. After finishing the course I got a 6-month internship position. I currently work as a full-time Junior Full-stack Software Engineer. By co-organizing this event I’m giving back to the community and want to open the same possibilities as I had to others.
Lecture 1: JavaScript & ES6 Fundamentals
An introduction to how JavaScript works and how to take advantage of the new ES6 syntax and features. In this session, we cover the basic programming paradigms in JavaScript, as well as topics like OOP and functional programming. We use the Chrome browser as a playground for an interactive session.
Here is our Syllabus (http://wtmberlin.com/javascript-crash-course/).
The course will be instructed by a team of developers, headed by Armağan Amcalar, Head of Software Engineering at Unu GmbH (https://unumotors.com), and will be hosted at Eurostaff, in Mitte on Wednesdays.
Course description:
This is a course designed for introducing JavaScript and Node.js as a platform for backend applications. It assumes that you know basic concepts of (object-oriented) programming but we will start from the beginner level and build up. So, the more programming experience, the better — but total newbies are also welcome, provided that they invest the required amount of time for self-learning.
The course is designed around open-source technologies, so a Unix-like system, Linux or MacOS is preferred. Git and Visual Studio Code will be our main tools, along with Node.js. Windows is not preferred, but if you absolutely have to live on Windows, you should have a working git and Node.js installation, and the rest will work.
