Tech is not only our job but our hobby, too. Let's show each other all the IT stuff we do at home. In this meetup series we'll share exciting IT DIY solutions, tips and tricks.
All levels of expertise are welcome. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned practitioner, feel free to join us.
Talk 1: (doable) Smart Home setup (Balázs Bozsogi)
Walkthrough of both trivial and a few unusual automation potentials around your home. My ecosystem is built around Apple Homekit, but mostly from non-certified components. How far can you go today without coding? What are the cases where you should do your own magic? What are the available/accessible components/platforms worth investing into?
Talk 2: Light up the Bass! - Music reactive LED lighting system (Roland Béres)
The project introduces a way to customize RGB LED lighting in your home. It also integrates with Spotify to synchronize the lights with the rhythm of any music and demonstrates proof of concepts about the limitless possibilities that are achievable with a custom solution.
Talk 3: Digital Busy Board (Gábor Farkas)
Modern times require modern toddler busy boards! I'll show how a bunch of buttons, switches and leds can entertain both the kids and their father! An extraordinary toy that automatically silences itself after 8pm!
I started my career as a software developer, but early on I realized that the development flow interested me more than actual coding. Since then, I have played many roles in software engineering, focusing on how to create better and better software. I have been with ALIZ since 2016 in various positions: Project Manager, Head of Project Management, and Chief Operations Officer. Nowadays I lead the entire delivery organization as VP of Engineering and I am part of the management team.

I'm that kind of a developer who is not a master of any technology but able to tinker with anything. I worked at Nokia, Morgan Stanley as a software engineer and at GreenFox Academy as a mentor doing everything from full-stack development to low level C++ coding. Currently I'm working at Instructure on a learning management system written in Ruby on Rails and React.

I wrote my first pieces of code as a child. I took the long journey from IS-BASIC to Java, going through Pascal, a lot of Assembler, carefully avoiding C++. And yes, also PHP. I was young and needed the money. I started working with Java Enterprise around 2007 and had a short detour to the finance industry. I was happy to arrive at ALIZ ten years ago. I'm currently working for one of our large key accounts as a Cloud Architect. As a hobby, I enjoy building Lego Technic stuff with my kids. I can't wait for them to grow old enough for robotic sets.
