Editorial nr. 41

This issue of the magazine is to be distributed for the first time in printed version during Cluj IT Days, an event which has reached its third edition this year. I hope those who are reading these lines in Cluj Arena on the 24th-25th of November think their participation is a good opportunity to connect to the IT life in Cluj and to enlarge their professional horizon. The presence of a large number of participants from different regions of the country has proved to us that the interest for this event has grown beyond Cluj area, especially the concern for self-improvement. We invited the best local experts, those who stand out in other cities of the country, such as Iasi, Timisoara, Brasov, Bucharest, but also specialists from Rotterdam or London, since Cluj IT Days hopes to reflect the fact that within the national, but also the European area, the IT industry in Cluj stands out as an important landmark. For the organization and unfolding of this event, Today Software Magazine has involved several teams, among which I would like to mention the Subsign team, which has become our designer and has done all the visual materials for this year’s conference, as well as for the new project called programez.ro. I would also like to thank the TSM team: Ana-Maria, responsible for the desktop-publishing and marketing and Alex, for implementing the new itdays.ro website as well as programez.ro in a short time.

This month’s release is scheduled to take place after IT Days, on Thursday, November the 26th, at 6 PM. You can find out more details on the site and in the social media. We begin the series of articles – how else? – with an article on the Cluj IT Days 2015 presentations and we go on with How to Web 2015, an event that is to take place in Bucharest, right after the one in Cluj. The salaries in IT is an interesting topic, engaging different opinions, as we can read in the article signed by Adrian Lupau, a specialist in sales and an entrepreneur. A positioning system for closed spaces based on Wi-Fi signal promises a solution for the places where the GPS is not available, but we have a WiFi signal. Designing strong systems – some guiding marks contains a few pieces of advice related to the development of projects depending on their complexity. From the area of testing, the article called Acceptance Testing Driven Development using SpecFlow with selenium in C# offers several useful solutions to those from the testing domain. The User Experience Audit goes through the analysis steps for an appropriate user experience, probably one of the most important steps in the process of development of a new product or redesign of an existing one. In the end, I invite you to read Peter Lawrey’s article: Common misconception: How many objects does this create?
