The issue under discussion is how one can find him or herself in IT-field based on the background and advice of successful IT-business representatives.
We will deal with some IT fables, discuss ‘burning’ questions with participants and speakers in light format and talk about real life of IT people.
I have been working with IT specialists for
more than 10 years and often see a sad situation. A good specialist who works
perfectly with the program code and other sign systems is promoted, for
example, to become a team lead. At this point, he begins to manage other people
and, unfortunately, very often does not cope with this task, which leads to
stress for the specialist, ruined projects, lost money and broken careers.
At the same time, a quite high level of
intelligence, as well as the ability to analyze information and draw
conclusions allow IT professionals to develop the skill of effective leadership
in case they have sufficient time.
To speed up the process of such training, I
developed a clear algorithm that allows "standardizing" the
The essence of the algorithm is that we
consider three components of effective leadership: the identity of the leader,
the model of behavior, the assessment of the situation.
1. What personality characteristics are
important for effective leadership: I will show the list of qualities, and tell
how to assess these criteria for yourself and your employees.
2. Five role models in management: we will
consider the behavior models, compile a list of personal qualities for each
model, and compare it with personal characteristics.
3. Quick scoring of the situation: an
algorithm for situation assessment and choosing an effective model of behavior.
After application of the algorithm, each
specialist will have
- a list of qualities of a manager,
- an assessment of the availability and intensity
of these qualities for each person;
- the optimal value of each quality for the
selected behavior model.
In conclusion, I will use the algorithm to analyze
three real examples of IT industry managers, two of whom are successful and
effective, and the third, unfortunately, has not failed this task.
Do you happen to know your fellow developer’s educational background? With ever increasing frequency, I have started to pay attention to the fact that there is a part of worth software developers who work in the specialty one has not trained in: one is a doctor by education, and the other one is a faculty of economics graduate or actually a person of a humanities bent. How come we are witnessing such a trend? And if one has a strong desire to become a developer,
- which steps he/she should take to retrain as an IT specialist;
- how to overcome one’s fear and anxiety, if not the public opinion;
- how to select a preferable work area among various IT areas: QA, mobile, software, web? What?!
These are the very issues in the focus of my report. Let us discuss!
- Point of view of the Maths teacher;
- Can a low-performing student become a programmer?
- What problems can arise in the near future when studying a school course of Mathematics.

I will tell how we organized the first
informal beach IT conference in Russia ULCAMP, what it turned out and how it
gave life to ULSK.IT.
Consideration of new approaches to programming propaedeutics for 1-6 school grades, including classical training and project activities.
In the modern world Professional Tryouts for school students, especially for teenagers, provide the opportunity to get acquainted with various professional activities and to assess their interests and capabilities. Participating in Tryouts (excursions, extracurricular lessons, diagnosis, involvement in practical activities, public events) students take more responsibly to prepare for their future careers. The task of the teacher is to model the basic elements of each activity and to analyze the job market trends.

Why do children need to learn programming starting from junior school. How to boost interest in
studies through project creation in playroom environment. Data from a survey of schoolchildren:
what kids are doing at their computers? Experience of Codabra Digital Creativity School as a
business and as a volunteer movement aimed at getting children involved in digital creativity
My success story and answers to the questions:
How to get into ‘IT flow’, pursue a professional career, become a leader, while retaining the ability to program and the skill to remain up to date;
How to be able to ‘sell’ yourself? The matter is that even those people who have excellent skills in IT sphere, sometimes do not know how to display them to their chief;
How to earn in IT: assessment of your capabilities and salary setting.
And what, we will have to speak? I'm ready to share our experience at the Round Table
I have been training IT professionals for almost 20 years by now. I used to train schoolchildren, college students, school leavers, university students, grown-ups and accomplished IT professionals. There have been many experiments with trainees. Some things worked, others obviously didn’t. At STACHKA 2017, I would like to share my experience and my view at internship arrangements for IT students. My report could be interesting to teachers and people from higher education community, my counterparts from IT companies, IT students and, perhaps, also to school teachers and coaches from creativity centers.
How to make a student interested and engage him into IT? The most important thing is how to keep his interest throughout the entire educational process from school to the university graduation? Can we be sure that he will continue his movement in the IT field after graduation? Together with you, we will try to understand these issues, to determine whether it is a myth or reality. The report is based on the experience of the Computer School of the Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies, in particular, and the whole department in general.
Our goal is to increase the number of proficient developers capable of finding credible solutions to address real-life problems.
In the end of the subsection “Training of IT
professionals”, we will gather in a circle to discuss pressing problems, share
opinions, get to know each other. We invite representatives of IT faculties of
universities, employees of IT companies involved in training, and, of course, it
will not do without teachers of computer science and not only computer science.
Come in - let's talk!
