What is itnig for you? A cultivating space for new idea to take form, friends, Avantguard, a company in which you can grow, learn & have fun and even a mix of knowledge and good practices that push you to find a good solution and accompanies you.

We will talk with Eloi & Arol from Codeworks about whether their 3 months intensive coding bootcamp can be an alternatives to universities. if you want to become a developer a university course might be too engineering focused — can a bootcamp be a solution?

Eliza is spending her day focussed on logistics, transporting online orders not yet with drones. Oriol Blanc is interrogated by Bernat on the relationship of him being in a company and the police stopping by to check if everything is in order. He also tells us a bit more about his past venture Gossip, a social app that grew and was dropped very quickly. Next up, Jaume Freixa from iKoula, a sponsor for the night, a company for cloud hosting dedicated to small and medium businesses. Jaume used to work with us many years ago and now comes back with an interesting solution to startups like ours.

Victor Martinez, another ex Camalooner, is confronted with the topic of our last podcast talking about recruitment. He was the one who took a technical test asked of him badly and perceived it as having to give free work to the recruiting company.

Xavi & Matthias, both in two open source corporate businesses, discuss what it is like to work in such an environment. Matthias will also mention his responsibility as gatekeeper, contributing himself to the Linux kernel and also checking other contributor’s branches. But what is it like in a working environment, where productivity is not measured, even though they follow agile methodology with a marked production rhythm?

Hear from Alex, who used to work at Playfulbet, about his use of microservices o monolithic app. You’ll also meet Aida Nogues, who started as artist hunter at Camaloon and talks about her days now as UX/UI Designer at Badi. She spends her time with user testing to validate features, flows or wireframes of the product they are developing or even UI and the design of the interface.

Lastly you’ll see Bernat interviewing Adria & Andre, one of our first Sales Ninjas in Camaloon, who came to celebrate with us. They are now dedicated to selling Saas for hospitals or travels for students in Switzerland.
