In Polish Panel dyskusyjny - Od Developera do Managera a czasem z powrotem. Co czeka po drugiej stronie korpo lustra

Czy zastanawiałeś się kiedyś co robia managerzy w Twojej firmie? Można decydować o wszystkim i mówić innym co mają robić, płacą pewnie za to kupę kasy i tak naprawdę nie trzeba robić nic. Brzmi jak robota marzeń!
Jednak z jakiegoś powodu dużo ludzi zawraca z tej scieżki kariery i decyduje się na powrót do developementu, Zastanawialiście się dlaczego?


W trakcie tego panelu, porozmawiamy z kilkoma liderami naszych community, którzy wkroczyli na tą ścieżkę i są tam albo z niej zawrócili. Czego się spodziewali, co zastali, czy warto?
Odpowiedź na te i kilka innych pytań postaramy się znaleźć wspólnie, co może pomóc wam w dalszym wyborze ścieżki kariery.

In English Refactoring meets big money

There is that day in life of every developer when he goes to boss and asks for permission to rewrite / refactor our application. It can be that inherited thing, maybe something we wrote on our own, however it's often the moment when we feel it can't go any further. We're frustrated and angry.
I've been there, did it couple of times, and I won't hide, failed couple of times. There are still systems out there, that counted on me, that I'll get some love for them from business and I've failed them!

Right now it's a perfect time to share some of that experience, especially all the successful techniques I've been able to identified, to rescues all the systems out there among with sanity of developers that work on them.
I'll share everything I've learned on how to convince business to refactor, what are the possible strategies and finally, most likely most importantly, what to do and how to live with that legacy crap if we fail. The world does not end and we don't have to change our job if we fail.
