What We Are Passionate About

Some of our rare spare time we, Andrea O. and myself – two people who love reading books- spend bookcrossing. We breathe life into books instead of letting theHappy readingm collect dust in a shelf. Bookcrossing is a community of book lovers who release books “into the wild” and then follow their journeys.

People who “catch” a wild book follow the instructions on the label to go to bookcrossing.com to see where the book has been and to make a new journal entry so that other Bookcrossers know it’s in good hands. After they have read it, they release the book again on park benches, in shops, in phone booths… as long as others can find it.

Or we share our books with other members sending them around, so as many members as possible can read them.

Why are we passionate?

It is great fun to see that our books are free and bring joy to people would never have thought to get a book for free.

Look at some great examples:

–    Books in an unconventional location

–    Books read by so many people

–    Books traveling to the end of the world

But there is more to it:

Agile Management & the four types of trust within a team

When trust between business partners disappears the business may very well disappear too or, best case scenario, the partners may break up and follow different roads. At first, the one who suffers is the performance of the team and the debates will be shadowed by suspicions and assumptions.

Jurgen Appelo in Management 3.0 has a theory on how many types of trust exist within a team (source http://www.management30.com/).
In a few words there are FOUR:
– Trust in your own person that you can make it;
– Trust in the same level colleagues;
– Manager’s trust in the team members;
– The trust of the team in the manager;
Which is the most important one? Which one should never disappear?
I believe they are all equally important and should be treated accordingly inside any team.
From the manager’s point of view his trust in the team disappears (or has already disappeared ?) when he starts playing the policeman, implementing tracking and controlling actions.
The team will respond in its turn with the same suspicions, embracing a more circumspect and reserved position.
How do we get here? Stress, insufficiently trained managers, teams that never reached the norming stage.

Summertime is internship time at 1&1!

This is a guest post written by our interns.

Internship at 1&1The internship at 1&1 Internet Development is a great opportunity for students to participate in a first-rate, hands-on experience. We felt the thrill of working in a big international company, being part of a powerful network of developers, managers, and executives.

The duration of the internship is either 3 or 4.5 months. The program is based on a rotation system and gives us the chance to work within several departments, under the guidance of a “buddy”. He supervises our work, provides us with advice and professional mentoring. Each one of us has the possibility to choose whether to stay with the current department or move to the next one for the same period of time. So far, we got halfway through the internship and these are some of our impressions:

Java User Group edition #9 at 1&1 Internet Development

JUG edition 9

JUG edition #9 @ 1&1 Internet

This is a guest post written by Eugen Stan, BJUG member.

BJUG #10 is closing in fast. In less than two weeks we meet again, and get another chance to find out new stuff about new and exciting technologies, but more important about each other. That is the reason why we, Andrei and Mihai, started JUG Bucharest almost one year ago and that is the reason why I constantly remind people to share ideas and get to know each other better.

I’m a strong believer that people drive things forward, and that technologies, frameworks and programming languages are just tools.

JUG 10 looks popular, but it still has some catching up to do before it reaches the same popularity as JUG #9, which managed to fill the 100 places conference room from the 10th floor at 1&1 Internet Development.

Thoughts From An Intern

Internship @1&1

Internship @1&1

This is a guest post written by Sorin P. our intern for a week.

Here are Sorin’s thoughts on his one week internship at 1&1 Internet Development, what he learnt and what he believes the future holds for him:

I have decided to see if it is really as hard to work for IT companies as people usually say. Although, you might say I am too young to have worked for a company, I can state that I experienced many interesting things in the time I was at 1&1 Internet.

When I first came here, I was very surprised that everyone was very relaxed during the work they were doing. Secondly, I would like to point out something that in my opinion is very important and should be done
