Day three of the event focuses on Product Engineering (Java + .Net) content exclusively. Get to know a few of our speakers and tap into the Product Engineering superpower!

Kateryna Zorina

With only three months working at Cognizant Softvision, Kateryna is ready to be a speaker for the first time at Programmers’ Week. Her 55-minute tech talk is an opportunity to learn about ASP.NET Core Blazor, a new framework developed by Microsoft which allows developers to build interactive web apps using C# for both server side and client side dev. 

The theme for this year’s event is #GoBeyond, and for this young software engineer in Lviv, Ukraine, it’s synonymous with loving challenging tasks that motivate her to think out of the box. 

“I’m also passionate about running, so it helps me not to give up and keep working hard on solving work-related challenges,” Kateryna reveals.

When: Wednesday, September 15, 10:00 AM EEST (55 minutes)


Romualdo Lanzón & Emiliano González 

This duo is well known in Buenos Aires, Argentina! They’re both software architects and community leads who have been working on the .Net community for more than two years. This is the third time as a speaker for Romualdo and the first for Emiliano. It was their community manager, Matías Baldi, who suggested they speak together about Subject Matter Expert (SME) leading in the acquisition of new skills

Emiliano describes himself as a perfectionist and, for him, “going beyond” is the equivalent of trying to make things as good and efficient as possible. 

“This also comes with good rewards, and those rewards push me to try being even better,” he points out. 

For his partner, “going beyond” means to give an extra effort, “especially in a way that exceeds expectations, dealing with more elements, complexity and constraints,” says Romualdo.

When: Wednesday, September 15, 4:00 PM EDT (55 minutes)


Vincent Bortone  

With 25 years of professional development experience focusing on Microsoft technologies, Vincent knows what he’s talking about when it comes to .Net. The 2021 edition of Programmers’ Week will be his third time as a speaker. The technical manager from West Palm Beach says that, in 2020, he enjoyed the opportunity to share his expertise with a larger audience than presentations he’s conducted in the past. This year he’s looking forward to reaching an even broader audience, as well as attending more sessions. 

“I think it’s a natural tendency for people to want to better themselves, whether physically or intellectually. A lot of what drives me to ‘go beyond’ is an internal drive to be the best at what I do. Of course, finishing an engagement with a happy customer is also quite satisfying – and usually great for repeat business,” Vincent concludes.

When: Wednesday, September 15, 4:00 PM EDT (55 minutes)
