We had two speakers on T3EE 2016:
@Jens with "Scrum or not to Scrum? And how about remote teams?":
A short overview about the basics of Scrum and what benefits this agile methodology gives to a project. This helps to decide for what type of projects Scrum can be used and what parts might be always useful even for the smallest project based on our experience. At the end some hints on organizing distributed (or remote) teams cleverly.

@Adrian with "Responsive Checkout":
Did you know that more than 67% of customers abort the checkout process? Get to know – based on much research, case studies and usability analysis – how to increase your conversion rate and how to turn customers into returning customers.

Earlier this year we announced you that we will be Gold sponsors at one of the best IT events from Cluj, and also an unique event in Romania. Yes Cluj have IT - and it’s called T3EE = TYPO3 East Europe.
This event brings together lot of developers, great speakers, funny and enthusiastic people who share the same passion: the love for development and TYPO3. This year, we had the 4th edition of T3EE and it was awesome. If you missed it, then you should buy your ticket for the next one starting now. You won’t regret it.
Beside the interesting subjects and great talks, we had so much fun. Every talk was ended by playing a different game, and the Main party from friday night was the definition of fun and joy. Not to mention the party from thursday with traditional music and food, which for many of our guests from Germany, Greece, Austria, Switzerland or Netherlands was, for sure, a night they will never forget.
Thank you all for your effort to make this great event, for the participation at the event and see you at the next T3EE!
The T3EE theme this year was FUN. So what’s better than playing games to have fun? After each session every 2 teams played a different game. No one knew the games so no one knew what to expect for, and because some of the teams had the same score we had to have a final winner.
Can you guess which was the final prove of who is the best? Well it was Karaoke. There were 3 teams left in the final, and every team had to sing the song: “We are the champions”. No further commments though. The “fight” was very tight, but in the end we finally had our winner, and we are proud to say that 2 of our super heroes were in the winning team.
If we had a winner, they had to have also a prize for all the effort they put to win this fun championship. And the surprise was a… good surprise. It was a moving clock alarm. So now we’ll know why some of our colleagues will be late at the office. They will keep trying to catch/stop the alarm.
Today it's a big day for us :), Target-E's first year of activity, here in Cluj Napoca. This way we want to thank to our team of great developers: THANK YOU for all your effort and work through the year. Target-E is greatful to have you.
It is known that a team with negativity, doubts and disinterest will most likely fail to reach its goals, and we try to do our best to remove any trace of those. Being and working as team, means for us, a second place to be called as home.
A good latin proverb says "Mens sana in corpore sano". And we really do this at "home". We eat only healthy food, do a lot of sport, singing and dancing, and sometimes we work too...
The truth is that we work smart (not hard) and we are excellent fusball developers. This year we had also our first fusball championship and Dani and Andi were invicibles (not really hard to guess who won the trophy :D). If you are also a good fusball player, you should join us.
As the days go by, so does the winter. The battle between winter and spring has started, but not for us. The most expected moment has come. We are finally going to ski. Even if no one of us has any skills, we are all so excited about it (hope that this enthusiasm will also help us to learn skiing, otherwise we will just be a huge snowball).
Everyone is ready and we just pressed the "start button" of the road trip adventure till Vartop. The sun from Cluj make us a little bit skeptical, but we hope that there will be snow.Even if the road is kind of "shaky", it doesn't matter, the time passes quickly... and it's getting colder and colder, meaning that we are almost at destination... And here we are. The hosts expect us with traditional good food and other surprises. Tomorrow morning we will meet our ski instructor and after tomorrow the Winter Olympics can come :).
Sun, hesitating, woke us up, and after breakfast we were ready for the first ski lesson. The instructor told us the dos and don'ts, showed us some basic tips, and after that everyone was one their own way. And because team has no I, but win has, we encouraged each other, until each managed eventually to ski even at least a little.
At the end of the day Alexandra was our snowboard princess, and Erika our ski ballerina. Everyone tried hard, but in the end everyone was very happy and we are waiting the next ski teambuilduing.
