ShipIT Day @ 1&1 Internet Development – eCommerce Department Romania. From idea to practice

ShipIT Day @ 1&1 Internet Development. From idea to practiceThis is how the event started and this is what we’re expecting for its outcome!

Long history short…

The Ship It Day concept has been designed by Atlassian to give its employees the chance to work on anything that relates to the company products and deliver it during the 24 hours of the event. This came from the necessity of fostering the creativity, proving a different opinion, moving faster and increasing the work environment attractiveness.

Hmmm… seems familiar… and even more, we’re thinking that it also helps strengthening the teams and increasing the quality of the collaboration.

Game rules…

A night at the … theatre

A night at the … theatre

A night at the … theatre

No, unlike the Queen album, we didn’t go to the opera … we chose the next best thing – the theatre.

But let us first disclose the unknowns:

“We” – stands for the executive staff team, plus one guest from another team, which remains undisclosed for confidentiality purposes; 🙂

“Theatre” – the play “Dragostea dureaza trei ani”, beautifully performed by four talented actors at Café Godot.

Now let’s start with the beginning.

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.

A new step in improving the 1&1 Mobile Experience

Knowledge is power..

Knowledge is power..

Smartphones are not just simple gadgets; they are creating a strong emotional relation with their users. They are close at hand; they are the shortest way to reach people who matter; they keep our most important memories, and they help us do our job better. As a marketer, I strongly believe that mobile applications are the type of applications that can create the highest engagement with the users. In the same time, the challenging part is how to fulfill the higher and higher expectations of the users.

The beginning

The end of this spring kept us busy. We had many ideas about how we could help our customers have a better experience on their Smartphones, and we looked for awesome people, who would make our idea happen. At the end of June we had already all the heroes of our story: Development for iOS and Android, QA, User Experience and Copywriting – or more exactly, a strong team, able to organize, innovate and adapt in a highly agile environment… all of that in our fast growing office in Bucharest.

Linux Filemonitor released as Free Software by 1&1

We, at 1&1, are using Free Software in almost all aspects of our work, and we are happy when we can even contribute to the Free Software community.

Linux Filemonitor is the first software to be released under GPLv2 by the Romanian Linux Development Core team.

Linux Filemonitor (or linux-filemon) is an experimental kernel patch developed by 1&1 which provides dentry-based file event notifications for the entire virtual filesystem.

Why could this be of any interest?

Because it’s the missing piece of Linux for scalable

A Team That Grows With Its Projects

Today’s “Server and WebHosting Applications” team started as “Server Platforms Development” some time ago, but I will tell the story since June 2011, when I became part of it. As any successful entity, the team had to change over time, to adapt both in structure and focus. During my time here its spirit seems to have remained a constant, fascinating mixture of very different personalities and skills, somehow like the American “melting pot” theory.

When I first arrived in 1&1 within the server platforms, I found a very diverse group of

Being Agile is a trip, not a destination

At a first glance Agile development framework seems simple, attractive and effective. Most probably that’s why a lot of software companies have embraced it as a path toward their success, but as simple as it may look, being agile is not that straight forward. Being a framework, not a standard, there is always the need to fill the empty spaces with processes and tools that fit the organization and the business goals. That’s why we invite you, dear reader, to accompany us on a journey throughout the Agile Manifesto, taking each principle that is stated in this valuable document and looking it carefully through the eyes of the Project Management Office of
