We will be short: from November 16 to November 22 GeekBrains carries out the international Geek Week 2015 online conference. Our plan is simple: 7 days of intensive training in programming and communication with experts from the leading IT corporations of Russia and the world. Absolutely free of charge and without departing from the computer.

The idea to hold conference was not accidental: during work with listeners we saw real need for expansion of practical knowledge. As a result found the best speakers and selected an online format available to everyone. What we learned from listeners about to whom conference and a few teasers — under a cat will be useful.

Geek Week 2015: to study, to learn and to study once again

Modern IT projects created request for qualitatively new specialists who combine thorough ownership of the specialization and knowledge of the accompanying technical and managerial tools.

  • If the developer owns bases of that industry for which he creates software, the profile of use of the program becomes more obvious to it what simplifies development process and testings.

  • If the developer creates the application (mobile, desktop, web), it is important to it to know how to advance this sentence in the market and to fit in on competitive Wednesday. Especially it concerns small startups when several people are forced to execute functions of the whole company.

  • The manager who is responsible for a commercial part of the project also has to have at least general idea of development process and creations of a product, has to understand how there takes place work on the program and testing, preparation of release or implementation of a new feature what is the time borrows. Then it will be able to inform easily of benefits of course consumer, and in the company the phrase will never be heard: "Well, add the SWOT analysis module, same all steam of days".

  • At last, the understanding of interrelation of all of business and worker processes of the company considerably accelerates development, entry into the market and simplifies work of customer service.

The called requirements force specialists to get additional education, beginners — to pump over skills, and students — independently to develop practical skills which so are not enough in higher education institution. Unfortunately, among an information stream it is sometimes difficult to select the most necessary and on searches of material more time, than on its mastering leaves. Our 7-day marathon of knowledge will help to master something new, to decide on a vector of development and to touch professions of already come future: to information security, programming web&mobile; to 3D modeling, augmented reality, cloud computing, Big Data, robotics, online &multichannel; retail.

To whom and why the Geek Week 2015 conference will be useful?

To beginning developers. If you take the first steps in programming or you have a good theoretical base, but it is not enough practice, for you intensive online training in creation of the websites and mobile applications from the best teachers of the portal is provided. There will be couple of interesting webinars about employment and start IT shnoy pits.

Professional development in pure form is guaranteed to Middle-developers — you will hear a lot of useful information from experts from the companies Yandex, Kaspersky, Google, etc. (more than 20 speakers). Reports are broken on subjects and take not really a lot of time, you can watch or listen to a webinar, practically without distracting from work. Though to guarantee that you will not be fond and do not plunge into communication with experts, we cannot.

To managers of commercial services of the companies and startups. It is not up to the end clear to you, than developers and why their persons strain when you ask to fasten a small fishechka for the client are engaged? Just look at their world from within, and it will become clear to you how the product is created. Immersion in development gives unique experience thanks to which PR and marketing become not the simple description of functionality or beautiful words about efficiency, and informing clients on real advantage of a product. Of course, subjects of promotion and positioning of IT solutions will be discussed at conference — do not refuse to yourself a source of ideas and knowledge. By the way, you will be able to look at the work as the developer's eyes.

How all this will work?

All conference consists of a set of webinars of different subject duration to an hour. Lectures take place consistently therefore each participant in the presence of time and desire will be able to take part in all sessions. For the interested, but very busy record will be made. The scope of webinars includes questions of programming, mastering of languages, design, commercial solutions and even employment. Such dispersion is connected, first of all, with the fact that in the modern companies development, the design and commerce work in one direction — aspiration to satisfy needs of the client and to react timely to its requests.

Besides, for all seven days of conference will take two free training a course.

  1. "PHP. Fast start". On the example of creation of the blog in the PHP language the teacher Yury Zhayvoronok will open the general architecture of the website, will tell about work with authorization, the database, templates.

  2. "Android for beginners. Creation of the game "Eat green circles"". General mobilization already here — in the world is over 5 billion operating mobile devices. Mobile applications took business, science, medicine, sport, entertainments and away … The teacher Igor Dolgov will tell about programming essentials under Android and will help you to create simple game independently.

In general, if we were asked to draw tag cloud for our conference, it would look approximately so:
