We started 2016 by having a chance to listen an interesting lecture from true IT Industry veteran - Milen Dynkov (https://twitter.com/milendyankov). Milen spoke about many good ways of achieving modualarity in the project and later during great live demo shown practical implementation of his concepts with usage of OSGI.

Next week we switched to Functional Programming theory and a question - what is the best way to learn this approach? Paweł Włodarski (https://twitter.com/pawelwlodarski) described some practical and theoretical aspects of FP - but just by listening FP can not be mastered - that's why soon a full cycle of FP workshops will take place in the city of Lodz - material for the first one is ready FP in Java8 - workshop 1 material
