Programmers are a different breed of professionals. I am stating this after spending thousands of hours with them (as a non-programmer and attentive observer). Future or current, junior or senior, freelance or employee, entrepreneur or consultant programmers, they all have a special set of personality traits significantly differentiating them from other guilds: they strive to create, they want to share, they dear to compete, they show the mastery of their art, they chase the challenges much more than others.
I do not know another professional group members so regularly committing time after long office hours presenting and debating new technologies, showcasing core-business or collateral, pet-projects, asking for and/or offering feedback, late in the week’s working days meetup events. They are mentoring in the 7 CoderDojos in the Timisoara Metropolitan Area for almost 52 Saturdays a year, bringing knowledge, friendship, self-confidence, empowerment and joy to large groups of 7-17 years old coding ninjas, they future co-workers, employees or, why not employers… 🙂
Their passion drives their interest and activities in so many different directions, best demonstrated by the diversity of Timișoara constellation of specialized tech communities illustrated in the city’s meetup.com record.

It is well-known that Timisoara Startup Hub is the meeting place for almost every tech meetup in the city. The evening of April 9th has been dedicated to hosting automotive technologies passionates in the context of inauguration of their, hopefully, new favorite professional gathering.
It is common thing for tech people to enjoy studying, playing with or even creating hardware. Calin Brandabur is one of those who make the most of it. Thus, he has opened the event presenting his promising project, Symme 3D, a high-performance delta 3D printer/laser/router processing machine that, in our opinion, may influence new approaches in the local prototyping/ automotive/ manufacturing industry.
He has also fed the curiosity in the room by exhibiting the printer and sharing models in the audience. Showcasing components 3D printed for a real, powerful motorcycle that was actually brought in the room has been, without discussion, an interesting moment. Read more
