Codemotion Milan 2023
Codemotion is the largest technical conference for developers, and the Codemotion community now exceeds 250,000 people. This annual event has become a crucial moment for updates and discussions for those who work in, and are passionate about, the world of computer science. For this reason, PC Cube never misses the event, and this year, we were also present at Codemotion Milan 2023.
There were many hot topics discussed, including some particularly interesting ones.
Let’s start with the evolution of quadruped robots, a particularly interesting technological innovation in the fields of security, medicine, agriculture, and space exploration.
Victor Barasoul’s presentation was particularly engaging, focusing on the easy implementation of AI-based algorithms. This approach is revolutionizing the programming of quadruped robots, improving their effectiveness and efficiency, and enabling them to adapt more intelligently to their surroundings. This field of research is having a significant impact in sectors such as inspection, agriculture, and space exploration, as quadruped robots are increasingly used in complex and dangerous scenarios. Programming plays a fundamental role in these successful applications and continues to evolve with new discoveries and innovations. It’s worth noting the presence of the HyQReal robot, a massive 140 kg machine that demonstrated its power by moving an aircraft weighing nearly 3 tons in a strength test at Genoa airport, further highlighting the progress in quadruped robot engineering.
Next, let’s discuss Servant Leadership, an important reflection on the role of the team leader.
The cohesion of a group and the success of the projects managed depend on this figure. We often focus on the “trendy” technologies currently used in the tech world, but we should never forget how to manage a team of developers from the perspective of the direct supervisor. Ultimately, it is the cohesive group that delivers the work and achieves seemingly unattainable projects in a short time. The topic of adopting an approach based on empathy, trust, and collaboration in technical teams is extremely relevant and intriguing. What strikes me the most is the idea of transforming technical teams into a highly motivated and creative force through leadership that inspires and motivates. Creating an environment where team members feel valued and able to fully express their potential is an ambitious but essential goal. This aspect can significantly improve the effectiveness and productivity of technical teams and represents an interesting challenge for delivery leaders and team leaders. The concept of “Servant leadership” suggests an approach that prioritizes the well-being and development of team members over the leader’s ego. This perspective can open up new avenues for more inclusive and effective leadership.
Web components could metaphorically save developers’ lives by addressing many situations where it was necessary to start work from scratch.
