Description

What is it?


A one day intensive on contemporary technical thinking.


That's a mouthful, I know. Seeing as there are a lot workshops in technology, let’s clear up what it’s not. These sessions are not about learning how to code, traditional computer-science, or the magical ingredients to create the next big startup. Neither do we stick to high-level chat and skim over the technical details. You’ll learn a lot, fast.


We offer a unique way of approaching today’s technical landscape, so you can make sense of all the moving components involved. Part of it is going through the technical nitty gritty but in a very easy and approachable way. Part is focused on helping you find the answers you need to get any idea you might have going and off the ground, giving you tools to make sure you’re always on the right track.


The goal is for you to have the information you need to make effective decisions in today's technical landscape.


By the end, you will understand what goes into software development, be able to critically think about what good user experiences are and how to test for them, consider startup models, and understand tradeoffs between speed and features, effective development and good design.

If you’re considering launching a startup that has some technical aspect to it, this workshop will be a great match. However, the day is designed to add value to almost anyone. Whether you are working in a STEM-based company as a consultant, are an aspiring product manager, perhaps have a lingering side project, or you run and maintain a lifestyle blog — you will get something out of this course and have a fun, inspiring time.




Who is this for?


If you:


  • are looking to start a technical venture
  • work in tech, perhaps in a non-development role
  • would like to work in tech, in any role
  • are an aspiring or starting product manager
  • are in a position of frequently interacting with technical startups
  • sell or consult on technical projects
  • have a niggling side project
  • work for a VC
  • are an entrepreneur at heart
  • run and maintain a blog, whether that’s lifestyle, food, beauty, fashion
  • maintain an online shop, selling fab products
  • are someone who's ever learning, ever growing, and curiosity often gets the best of you


For the person who’s tried to find answers to:

  • how do I create an app
  • how can I get my website to rank better
  • what's an API
  • what is SEO exactly and how can I improve it?
  • where do I start defining what my software should do
  • what's a bug exactly
  • what is the difference between machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • what's the difference between HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Ruby on Rails (or any other "name" for a "programming language")
  • how does Wordpress work
  • how do I build my own website


If any of this applies to you, you are likely to find this workshop interesting and beneficial and I'd love to see you there!




Cost


Workshops I’ve hosted to date have been £295+. This is a pilot for a new type of workshop I’m developing, so it's £30 only, which is just for the venue hire. A great deal if you’re interested in learning something new!
I also ask if you would spare 15 minutes of your time for a pre- and post-workshop survey. I’d love to hear how you found the session and what you’d like to see more of! This does not mean you're subscribed to any newsletter, it's just one-off.




A little about me...


If you're curious who you'll be staring at for the day, let me introduce myself. Hi! I'm Maxim :).
I'm a software engineer, designer, and general tech aficionado. I've been in the industry for 5 years, developed award winning apps, and graduated in Computer Science. I’m often asked how it all started, and to be honest, you would've been hard-pressed to tear me away from a computer since about the age of 5. I've run workshops on, spoken at conferences and written about, development and design for a few years — always to an engineering audience. Yet I believe this information should be accessible to all.


In setting up MENNENIA, I strive to create harmony in a day and age of disruption The growth rate of digital jobs is double that of any other position. Whichever way we look at it, technology is part of the future. Unfortunately, a picture has been painted that the skills to thrive in this industry have been handed to only a few, or require a strenuous amount of studying. I challenge this notion, as I believe anyone can learn to find harmony with technology. Technical understanding and thinking is accessible to all and knowledge truly is power. Through our workshops you will uncover the freedom to be creative, make confident decisions about your career, and thrive in the contemporary landscape.
