DAXX UKRAINE, March, 2013 - On the 27th of March IT guys from Kiev, Kharkov, and Dnepropetrovsk participated in Daxx TechTalks. The idea of TechTalks in our company is to give IT people opportunity to become a speaker, share their experience and knowledge with their peers.
Valeria Kokina, Marketing Manager at Daxx: “It was the first TechTalk in Daxx with broadcasting on all our 3 Ukrainian offices. Before this March, we organized only local TechTalks. At some point we realized that it would be better if we could gather together all our offices. So the idea to have distributed Daxx TechTalks appeared. Now this event is for our own employees, however we have plans to invite our colleagues and guest speakers in future.”
“How to Manage your Manager” is the topic of the first distributed Daxx TechTalk.
Andrew Antilikatorov, project manager at Daxx Kharkov, shared his experience how to build your own brand, how to be a superstar developer, and how to influence your manager depending on their personality and values. There were many questions, discussions during the event.
One more new thing for us is that during our first distributed TechTalk, we have also a “distributed Pizza break”. Daxx is famous for its Pizza days for developers, however we haven’t eaten Pizza before in all Ukrainian offices of Daxx simultaneously. It was really nice to eat Pizza together with our colleagues from Kiev, Kharkov, and Dnepropetrovsk. So the first TechTalk was also a teambuilding event for us.
Next Daxx TechTalks are coming, so stay tuned!
