Bhanu Gunda

Bhanu has participated in previous editions of Programmers’ Week and is back for more in 2021. For the technical lead settled in Bangalore, India, being a speaker is much more than simply turning on the webcam and sharing knowledge. 

“Programmers’ Week enabled me to enhance my solution design, architecture and technical skills. It also gave me an opportunity to collaboratively gain knowledge from different parts of the world on many emerging technologies,” Bhanu points out. 

The theme for this year’s event is #GoBeyond, and for Bhanu it’s synonymous with becoming an enterprise architect and being the best solution provider in any field or activity, from such as puzzle solving, sudoku and, of course, the tech field.

When: Thursday, September 16, 3:30AM GMT (55 minutes)


Stephen Vinuya

Stephen is a senior developer who has been passionately building websites since 2017. He is also recognized as one of the eight Microsoft MVPs for Developers Technology in the Philippines. Stephen will debut as a speaker at this year’s Programmer’s Week with a 55-minute tech talk on how to build a fully scalable web app using Google Cloud Platform’s Firebase and Angular.

As much as he loves building websites, Stephen also loves watching anime and playing games. But family is what mainly inspires him to go beyond, and now that he’s going to become a father he wants his children to be proud of him.

When: Thursday, September 16, 10AM PST (55 minutes)


Mihai Ureche

Mihai has worked as a web developer since 2008 and throughout the years, almost every time, he’s said “yes” when someone proposed he try something new. Today, he’s a community lead in Bucharest, Romania. This year is his second time participating in Programmer’s Week, and he expects to find technical and non-technical subjects to help him have a bigger picture on different technologies and architectures.

“For me, going beyond means always staying up to date with new technologies and helping the client receive the best solution that they can get. In my personal life it means to spend my free time with family and try to see as many places as I can,” Mihai concludes.
