Tecknuovo’s top tech community events – April 2020

We might be in strange times, but there’s still events happening virtually, meaning you can stay updated on the tech you love. Now more than ever it’s important to stay connected and socialise with the community online. You can find all the events, as well as a free virtual conference, happening this month in the Google Calendar below. More information about the Tecknuovo team’s favourite April events are within the article. You never know what you might learn this month!

Tecknuovo community update

During this time, having a supportive community around you can do the world of good. Over on our community Slack channel, we’ve added fun apps and a buddy system to help make sure that every member of the community has people they can reach out to if need be. Just because events aren’t currently bringing us all together physically doesn’t mean we’re not here for each other!

If you’d like to get involved and see for yourself how we’re banding together, join the community via this link. See you there!

ONLINE: Holding healthy team relationships during extended isolation – Register here

The occasional work from home is generally a nice break from the commute. But facing an extended period of such isolation is a big change for team relationships. Digital work can technically be done remotely, yet digital work is a team-sport and not being able to break-out for a chat, an impromptu whiteboard session, a lunch with a colleague can risk a breakdown in communication. As a result of this, teams need to stay connected. Find out from coaches how to best tackle this issue at this month’s Digital Leadership event. See you there!

What I Wish I Knew About Maven Years Ago – Register here

Apache Maven is often seen as the defacto build tool in the Java space. Since its early days back in April 2002, Maven has helped developers build projects and assemble artifacts. On the surface not much appears to have changed in the design, structure, and build file syntax, but in reality there are quite a good number of features that have been added through the years that make Maven a powerhouse. Come to this talk if you want to learn more about these hidden nuggets and make the most of your Maven builds. See you there!
