Jazoon TechDays 2016
Early last Friday morning, three scouts from the Adfinis SyGroup AG made their way to the Gurten – the famous local mountain of the city of Bern. They weren’t there to enjoy the lovely view, however. They came to sit behind closed curtains in dimly lit rooms, to witness the “Future of Web Development”: Jazoon TechDays 2016. Here is their report:
As Ember developers, we were especially interested in the insight that Gerard Sans and Rob Wormald provided into Angular 2. To our surprise, these two frameworks turn out to have more in common than we expected. So we had no trouble following the impressive on-stage coding session lead by Rob Wormald.
The Ember lecture given by Mike North was familiar territory for us. When Mike asked who had used Ember before, only one other person raised his hand besides us… and it was a former Adfinis guy 😉 The lecture gave us a good look into the improved advantages of Ember in mobile and desktop development.
The programme included more than just lectures. There were also discussions, which we got to listen in on. It was especially interesting to hear, for example, how Ben Lesh and Mike North solve everyday problems in their much larger development teams. It turns out that they deal with the same kinds of problems that we do.
All in all, we feel fortunate to be a part of this pioneering development in web technology. And it’s great to see how the local community is growing and being active. We feel really validated in the field that we’re working in, and we’re excited to start implementing Ember and Co. even more and to expand our knowledge and make our contribution to further development.
