Hello, dear citizens of Khabriv!

In this article, we will touch on such important topics as the metaverse, does a developer have to graduate from a university, and does a project manager need his own fortune teller? But let’s go in order!

We are three bored ITishniks who some time ago came up with the brilliant (not) thought of bringing our “wisdom” to the masses. We could not overcome it, so a project called “Stoframework IT”. At first it was an audio podcast, but after some time we decided to meet the listeners face to face. And now our faithful few subscribers can not only hear, but also see. And since some time we also started inviting guests to dilute our cheerful company with adequacy and prudence.

So, let’s get to know each other. We are Leonid Kazartsev, Zurab Bily and Saveliy Bondarenko. Each of us at least once lit up here with his article and passed, so to speak, baptism of fire.

To try to get you interested, in this short article we will talk about two issues: the most recent one at the moment and the one that turned out to be the most popular among viewers. We will, of course, be grateful for criticism and support (but support, to be honest, is stronger).

And you, our dear future one new subscriber, we, shedding tears of happiness, are sincerely waiting for you on the channel “Ctoframework IT”.

So what do we talk about in our releases? Oh, we try to cover the most relevant issues in the field of IT:

  • Does the project manager need his own fortune teller?

  • Is sparring suitable for resolving conflicts between developers?

  • Why put an iPhone to a goose?

  • How to choose the right cauldron for a marketer?

If you can’t sleep until you get answers to these and similar questions, welcome to our channel. If your thoughts are more reflected by the phrase “What am I reading now?”, stop reading, there are many interesting articles here, you will definitely find one that you will like. Well, we will continue.

So the latest issue is metauniverses. We suspect that most of you, like us until recently, do not really understand what it is and why you need it at all. Many still heard about this phenomenon, although they did not go into too much detail. But, fortunately, a person came to our podcast who does understand this, and enlightened us a little. And this person is Oleksandr Bondarenko, CPO/Product Lead at Garage 8.

So it turned out that metauniverses are not our future. This is our real one. And if you thought it was something about cyberpunk and the Matrix and stuff, you’re wrong … and right at the same time.

On the one hand, this is something fundamentally new, on the other hand, you have most likely encountered it more than once or twice. Yes, yes, because it actually turns out that the same social networks, online games and communities are also a metauniverse. So if you were expecting it to be about a chip in the brain and full immersion, you’ll have to be patient. This will all happen, of course, but not right now. A chip in the brain and total immersion are just ways to interact with the metaverse. And there are some shifts in this field, they even allow us to predict when we will be able to replace the boring gray reality with a new, colorful virtuality. And something suggests that even those who don’t really want to will have to delve into the topic later. After all, some parts of real life have already been dragged there, into the metauniverse.

To you, most likely, it seems completely stupid to buy a virtual plot of land and build a virtual mansion on it. It is perceived as a game and something frivolous. And now imagine that someone is already making money by, let’s say, placing virtual advertising on the walls of such a virtual mansion for very real money. And this is one of the most banal examples. Many specialties, for example, will eventually go there. And not only those that are exclusively about social contacts. A miner, a crane operator, a surgeon can also become “metaspecialists”, because it is possible to interact with the real world through virtuality, remotely, if there are enough technical capabilities.

Yes, now the metauniverse is in its infancy, we are witnessing the birth process of something fundamentally new. But their growth and development will not have to wait long. So Skynet and the Matrix and all that, that’s it, it’s probably going to happen someday (but it’s not certain).

In general, this was a small primer about the latest issue at the time of writing. Be sure to come listen to him and express your expert opinion.

And now — a little about the series that interested the audience more than others. In it, we talked about higher and higher IT education, and our studio was visited by another interesting guest who is well-versed in this topic – Kostiantyn Fedutinov, deputy dean of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of Voronezh State University.

So, does an aitishnik need a tower? Here, as always, there are two chairs … um, in the camp sense. And even among the hosts of the podcast there are representatives of those who understood the basics of programming on their own, without outside help, and those who still unwound the IT tower.

Is it so necessary now, when there is more than enough information, courses and lessons in open access? The topic, admittedly, turned out to be quite philosophical. But it is difficult to argue with the fact that university graduates have some advantage over self-taught students. First of all (yes, let’s start with the banal), a university graduate knows how to study. And in such a fast-growing industry, it’s really important. It is important to be able to learn all your life (technology will not stand still). And this is, perhaps, the most important skill that a graduate of an IT higher education institution acquires — to be able to learn right.

In addition, eichars of modern IT companies have been hunting students for a long time. That is, starting from about the third year, you, being a student of an IT university, have already, most likely, come into the field of view of recruiters. Not bad, right? You haven’t studied yet, but your brothers are already ready to work. And they take it!

In addition, many commercial companies, let’s say, expand the capabilities of the university, supplementing the standard planned program with additional courses, seminars and classes, and some even improve the math base of the educational institution with their own funds, so that their potential future IT students can learn better.

In general, there are undeniable advantages. And are there any cons? Come listen to the podcast, we’ll tell you all about it! And you will learn a lot of interesting things.

Apparently, with the meaningful part, that’s all, stop spoiling. In general, thank you for your attention, we are waiting for you!

PS And at the end, a small announcement. Hmm-hm! Bored on remote? Is there no one to talk to for life? Or maybe you even have something to say about it? Come to us! As they say, look at others, show yourself. In general, subscribe, like, we are very happy about it.

PS By the way, you can feel free to send us all your valuable advice and comments in all known ways. (Not a fact that we listen, of course, but you at least speak up.)
