Who’s Afraid of… Public Speaking?

Holding a presentation seems to be a very simple thing. Until you find yourself in the situation to actually hold one. Suddently a lot of questions come to your mind. How to structure your material so that it can be easily understood? How to handle the first minutes, if your mouth is dry due to the stage fright? What to do if the public is hostile, or bored, or tired…?

These questions (and many more) constantly accompanied me in every occasion when I had to present something in front of a group. No matter the group componence (teachers, colleagues, or friends), or the topic approached, I had never found suitable answers to them.

Running for fun & health

1&1 Internet Running Team

1&1 Running Team

When did I start?

It all started in June 2011, when I needed to do some exercise for my health due to a sedentary day-to-day schedule. During the first sessions indoors, I was barely able to run 500 m (besides the other exercises I was doing). Although I was not a fan of running, I discovered over time that I like to run. When it got warm outside, I started to run with friends / colleagues from my company, both in parks and at the National Stadium.

Where am I now?

After one and a half years of training, I am now able to run about 10 km in one hour. So, I joined

Tips for Efficient Meetings

In this article I’ll present some of the main elements in order to have efficient meetings.

In my career I’ve listened many times to people coming from or going to a meeting, and they were quite upset. The reasons varied, but generally they were all discontent “for having wasted one hour in vain”, or used to say “I shouldn’t have been there”, “what does he want now?”, “another monologue”, “I didn’t know how to get out of there sooner”, and so on…..

I could go on with the examples, but the first idea that gets to my mind is how such situations could be avoided. What would be the golden rules to avoid them?

Automation Workshop @ 1&1 Internet

This article was written by Ciprian B, Andreea B and Andrei T.

One of the long term issues identified during our Strong Team workshop was the need of developing the automated testing competency in our team, so that my colleagues can implement their own test automation solutions in their projects. Based on my experience in this area of testing, I asked to be responsible for the topic.

Some of my colleagues had no experience in test automation so far; therefore I started with a few presentations on Selenium IDE and RC in order to show

Leeloo’s Cupcakes in the Magic Fridge

It’s been scientifically proven that programming is a heavy calories burner. Don’t ask for evidence, browse the internet for it.
So, what’s a programmer doing when running out of calories and getting sour of so much programming?
Leeloo’s got the answer on that: cupcakes. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, the fridge in the kitchen at the 9th floor turns into a Magic Fridge packed with her delicious cupcakes which customers enjoy … well, they enjoy a lot. Cupcakes are available in exchange of anonymous donation in the value of 2 lei per delight, which you can drop in the Trust Candy Box nearby the Sweets Magic Fridge.
Leeloo’s proud to high sky that her work is so much appreciated by all of us and works hard to keep us sweetened – if we may say so.? Therefore, do never forget to drop your contribution in the Trust Candy Box so Leeloo keeps coming with her cupcakes and we all keep enjoying it.
Leeloo, keep up the good job!
