In Part 1 of this series, we looked at how to make the right choice of skill for the basis of up-skilling, we looked at starting an Elm project, and how essential items, like routing and theming, were thought about and addressed, before starting any coding for the project itself. In this final part, we will look at the open source contribution opportunities that came up during the project, how unknowns were discussed with the Elm community, and h [...]

It has been 10 months now, since I joined X-Team. Ten months of extraordinary experiences, of new friendships, and of interesting work. Now, I am here to tell you about some of the things X-Team does, which keep its people happy, and, more importantly, sane, while so many others are battling burnout on a daily basis. This blog has grown on the basis of a talk I recently gave at WebCamp Ljubljana. The content is similar but not identical, so if y [...]

As X-Team's remote developers have the privilege of working within the #unleash program, we grow and up-skill continually in areas of interest to each of us. I have found some ways I like to make the most of this up-skilling time, and I would like to share them with you in this short, two-part post series: An Elm Case Study. You are reading Part I. Part II is now available as well. Target audience Someone interested in learning more about Elm Jun [...]

Last year, I spent most of my work trying to bring the potential of my fellow developers into full play. I was pretty confident about the routine I have established. This year, I’m trying out a new approach based on experiences from last year. I’m certain it will help others be more focused on their growth. The background Currently, I take care of 18 developers and their growth. The way we work is mostly based on the approach I have described in [...]

We've decided to start a series of blog posts about the paths that our developers have taken as part of our Unleash program and their journey thus far. As the first example, I’d like to introduce you to one of the most humble and passionate developers I’ve ever worked with. This is the Unleash story of Mr. Kelvin De Moya. The humble beginnings I remember starting my work as an Unleasher in X-Team at the beginning of 2016 and Kelvin was one of the [...]

Welcome to the jungle Navigating the realm of web technologies may sometimes feel like exploring a jungle, especially for those who have just begun their journey. Abundance of programming languages, frameworks, libraries - even though exciting and challenging - sometimes makes one wonder: how and where do I start, since the most valuable resources are scattered around the web? At X-Team, we have developed a program solely devoted to accelerating [...]

According to StackOverflow’s latest yearly survey of 50,000+ developers, these are the Top 5 reasons developers stay happy in their jobs: #5: They believe in your company’s mission. It’s cliché, I know, but it turns out it’s even true for developers. And really, it’s one of the basic truths of life — we all want to follow some sort of mission that gives meaning to what we do. Otherwise, you’re just a code monkey. I’ll give you an example — the [...]

A look into the past… Just a year ago, our Unleash program was no more than an idea, a beautiful concept, a seed we wanted to plant in the, so to speak, fertile ground of X-Team’s amazing community. It offered our developers the opportunity to unleash their potential by giving them all the help they needed to learn and grow. And today, looking back on the past year, I am truly amazed at how much has been achieved; how the seed, from being just an [...]

My two kids Leonardo and Eduardo and I walking in the forest near from our house. When I became an X-Teamer, I was able to bring wife, two sons and dogs to live in Ubatuba, a beautiful place in Brazil filled with more than 100 beaches. Why could I do this? Because now I could work from anywhere. It’s seriously amazing. And soon after I had arrived, I met people that were already involved in very interesting movements related to a vast variety of [...]

What do you do for a living? Whenever I’m asked this question, it brings a smile to my face. Whenever I give the answer, it brings a face of confusion to the person who asked. Why? Because… I am a peacebreaker, a firestarter, a dreamcatcher, a wishmaster. I aspire to motivate people to take action, I push them to move out of their comfort zone, and unshackle potential and power they hold within their minds and hearts. I help them awaken their i [...]
