A Silent Fluid Labirint? – Tech Communities in Timisoara

Yes, we are living in a pacific plain, here in the green Banat. Things look and they really are pretty stable, there are not major storms threatening us, the balance of inputs and outputs in the nature is predictable and slow-paced. The plants, from the most humble blade of grass to the imposing oak tree know when is the right inception moment and which is the right rhythm for growth. There is a secret fluid that connects all these vegetal creatures. We are not Venetto or Amsterdam, but beyond the natural water-flows you may see this fluid in hundreds of years old, man-built canals connecting Bega to Timis, Danube to Tisa, Mures to Tisa.

You may start asking what’s with this text (geography, hydrography or poor literature, no matter what it looks like) onTech Comm RT-1 a website that focuses on the IT scenery? My answer is that we are living within a similar reality in the tech entrepreneurship ecosystem in this region.

Probably it’s gonna be a surprise for most of the readers to learn that Timisoara counts for about two dozens of tech communities, open and informal organization, all of them voluntary-run, aiming to serve as platforms for meetings, tech novelties sharing, success-story presentation, joint learning and communication between people interested in specific tech subjects.

Povestea primului an de Coder Dojo Timișoara

Startup Hub Timișoara găzduia, în urmă cu un an, prima întâlnire Coder Dojo în Timișoara. 30 de copii dornici să învețe să-și creeze propriile jocuri, alături de 7 mentori înarmați cu răbdare și pricepere, negreșit susținuți de părinți încrezători erau martorii începutului unei experiențe care avea să ajungă tradiție.

Pe parcursul acestui an, numărul copiilor înscriși în program a crescut semnificativ cu fiecare ediție, marcând finalul anului cu numărul de 37 de întâlniri productive. Organic a crescut și nivelul de complexitate a cunoștințelor, al energiei și nu în ultimul rând, al apropierii dintre toți cei care au pus umărul la construirea unei comunități performante Coder Dojo.

Între timp, activitatea Coder Dojo s-a extins și în alte orașe-suport, cu deschidere pentru educația non-formală. Tot acolo s-au găsit atât copii perseverenți, cu apetit pentru programare, cât și mentori care să-i călăuzească. Organizatorii au fost cei care au pus țara la cale pentru a facilita întâlnirile semnate #CoderDojo. Primul pe listă a fost orașul Szeged, Ungaria; cu curaj și inițiativă, au urmat orașele Arad și Oradea. Și lucrurile nu s-au oprit aici. Read more
