I have got acquainted with Mikhail Samarin about a month ago when he has become interested in my activities for the organization of conferences. Mikhail lives 15 years in Helsinki and holds position of one of business directors in the Futurice company, the large Finnish outsourcer. Among other things, Mikhail? twice speaker of JavaOne (2011, 2012) and twice Microsoft MVP (2013, 2014).
Due to the known events, it is even more often audible same around:? it is time to bring down?. I am far from this thought more than ever (I have now many projects, and all are connected with Russia and I not very much love Europe with the States), difficultly not to notice emigrant moods now. Especially among programmers.
Situation such is, what Futurice (in Finnish it is read? Futuris?, and in English? Fyyuchurays?) every day everything is more difficult to look for good developers in Finland, the country with the population in 5 million people. In this regard the company has decided to start looking for sensible engineers in Russia and to relotsirovat them in Helsinki. And in particular, to do it at the Russian programmersky conferences, for example, on. NEXT.
Things which were told by Mikhail, have seemed to me madly interesting and therefore I have asked it to give me interview which I bring to your attention.

You sometime reflected:? And how much is to construct the steamship??? And how many? to make the prototype design??? And of what there is such price??
Steamship? piece very daunting; its cost? it is the price of materials (metal, plastic and what there still is necessary), compensation of workers of shipyard, depreciation on wear of the equipment, payment of engineering researches and so on and so forth?
And what with the prototype design? Of what there is its price? Well, let us assume, we will enclose in cost? depreciation of the equipment?? money for the PC and software which needs regularly to be updated. And what? There is, actually, only compensation of the layout designer. And how to calculate it? Here ways two: or payment for man-hours (has what is the time spent? so much have also paid); or other more widespread approach? price-work payment (i.e. has evaluated brif-TZ on the model, has estimated its complexity, called cost).
That in the first case (directly) that in the second (indirectly), cost will depend on time which you spend for the work. And of what there is this time? There are internal factors: motivation, skills of work, muse, eventually? They are subject only to your will power, dza-zen and other self-improvement to you in the help here. But remain also external factors: from situation in study to methodology on which you work? and with them everything is more interesting?

Therefore everything becomes more important profession of the manager of IT projects capable to gather team of the first-class specialists and in the set terms to solve objective.

One of the main pluses of email thanks to which it is the standard in corporate communications (despite certain shortcomings of this technology) is simplicity and efficiency of the organization of communication even in big kompaniya.
It was not succeeded to replace it with other tools still in many respects because of restrictions which are imposed on communication? often with their help it is impossible to get access to the necessary people without need to be reconciled with information overload. As a result within specific team of employees any means of communication can be used, but all company is entirely connected by e-mail.
During the work on messenger for corporate communications of Kato.im we have paid much attention to problem of accessibility of interlocutors and decrease in volume of information noise.
