Sabin-Corneliu Buraga Doctor in Information Sciences (Cum Laude), Faculty of Computer Science, UAIC Iași
I achieved the title of Doctor in Information Sciences (Cum Laude) at “A.I.Cuza” University of Iasi in August 2004 - title of thesis: “Multimedia Object Manipulation Techniques on Internet”. Also, in 2005 I received “Gheorghe Cartianu” Award of the Romanian Academy for outstanding scientific contributions published in 2003.
Currently, some of my fields of interest and experience domains are:
Also, I have background knowledge regarding Distributed Computing – Internet Technologies, Agent-based Computing, Mobility, Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing, Peer-to-Peer Systems and others. My papers are published in the proceedings of different international and national conferences or in special issues of international publications (e.g., IEEE Press, Springer, AAAI Press, IOS Press, Elsevier Science, and others). Over the years, I served as a member of the program committees or/and organizing committees of different (inter)national scientific events and summer schools. I wrote and edited several books. Since 2002, I am the editor of the Web series of books published by the Polirom Publishing House. Also, I am a co-founder member and supervisor of a young interest group on Web technologies - WebGroup -, founded in March 2000 at the Faculty of Computer Science.
Răzvan Deaconescu Assistant Professor, University Politecnica of Bucharest
Răzvan was raised as a geek and an engineer and eventually found himself working in academia, with interest in technology, open source and organizations of all kinds. He is an unflinching workaholic; when not reading or writing e-mails, he enjoys his time teaching, preparing lecture and lab materials, coordinating technical and didactic teams, and getting involved in student-centered events. More than working, Razvan loves to talk, debate and act as a natural-born troll. He works almost exclusively in a Linux-based environment; he loves to use the command line, Vim, Emacs/Gnus, shell scripting, C programming and a dash of Python. He uses his energy in a lot of activities (too many in some accounts) and wishes to engage technology in making our life better, particulary regarding teaching/education and organizations of all kinds.
We will be taking a look at the DO’s and DON’Ts when writting unittests with mocks. For the first part of the talk we will be taking a look at how and when mocks should be used, since they oftenly tend to be misused or even abused when testing. The second part will be focused on real life examples when mocks simply seem to not work and have unexpected behaviours and how we can debug or understand these weird behaviours. Prior experience with Python mocking is not a must, but it’s welcome so that you can follow along easier with the examples.View presentation
Ștefan Caraiman DevOps Engineer, Yonder
I’m by definition what most would call a technology enthusiast. In my restless learning journey in the past couple of years, I’ve had the oppportunity to interact with even more opensource technologies and various projects. Next on my bucket list is to share more with other like minded people about what I occupy my time with and how to get the most out of it.
Matei-Marius Micu Cloud Engineer, Cloudbase Solutions
An outgoing IT enthusiast is what will describe Matei the best. He is a strong believer in open source software and a Python addict, he feels like home on a Linux based environment and would never trade vim for anything. When he is not geeking about technology or attending University you will find him enjoying some video games.
