In 2017 I attended a conference in Timișoara, where I met the Romanian community for the first time. I like that people are very open and curious, and interested in new technologies in general. I made good friends and decided that I should come back to Romania again. I heard about DevTalks from a friend and immediately did a short research about the conference. I like that the organizers try to provide various aspects of software development and IT in general by inviting people both from bigger and smaller organizations, freelancers, activists. I really feel honored to be among such people!
For me software development is about learning by networking, basically discussing ideas with others and trying to apply them in real life. I have learnt so much from the community, so I feel I want to help this same community too, by sharing my experience. Although, I don’t get to write that often, I try to write about my problems, solutions, and passion about technology.
Don’t stop developing yourself. Software comes second
Les-Tilleuls.coop provides developpers, trainers and software architects to create large scale, API-driven projects.
As open source fans, we open-sourced the API Platform framework. We also are in the top contributors to Symfony (one of the most popular web framework out there) and contributors to hundred of other FOSS projects (including famous ones like Kubernetes, the PHP language or Brigade).
Our company is somewhat particular because it’s a self-managed worker cooperative:
Among our customers, we count Decathlon, Orange, BeIN Sports or the Leroy Merlin Group.
Working on innovative technologies in collaboration with people from diverse origins and countries is a very interesting experience. It’s even more true in the Open Source ecosystem.
Being able to share knowledge and feedback around the world in conferences like DevTalks is so awesome, and a great opportunity.
I hope you’ll love API Platform, a full stack framework built on top of hypermedia formats and GraphQL, that you can deploy instantly in any public cloud.
I can’t wait to meet you and share our experiences.
