The slides of my talk today at Codemotion Milan 2019. Great sunny day in Milan talking about how software developers and testers should manage location-based services when dealing with disputed territories or partially recognized states.
How can software developers and startups manage location-based services in disputed territories or partially recognized state? Looking forward to present “Hey, where is my country? Software development and territorial disputes” at Factory Berlin.
This event is for members only but if you are interested get in touch, I will discuss location-based services in disputed territories or partially recognized state at other events in Berlin and Cologne in the next few weeks.
Curious about how software developers can manage location-based services when dealing with disputed territories or partially recognized states? We will see how things can go badly wrong, how (surprisingly) widespread the problem is discuss simple patterns on how to minimize the impacts of geolocation challenges. How can you really care about all your users around the world? Join me next Monday at 5PM at Factory Berlin Mitte (event for Factory members only)
As the BBC recently reported, Matthew Nimetz has spent the last 23 years trying to find a name for the republic of Macedonia that can be accepted both in Skopje and Athens. But a solution for the Macedonia naming dispute has not been agreed yet.
What name should a developer use today when working on location-based services? The user friendly Macedonia or the formal but longer The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia ? How can you make your users in Skopje and Athens both happy?
This is one of the examples I might use at the next Codemotion in Berlin. I do not expect to discuss in half an hour all the geopolitical challenges targeting an international audience and their workarounds, but I am very excited to present the talk “The (accidental) political developer” .
See you on October 12 & 13 at Kulturbrauerei!
