On July 2, 2019, Tomasz Naprawski talked about communication with programmers. He is a researcher and academic teacher on the Faculty of Economics and Management at the University of Szczecin, department Business Information Technology Management, in Poland and also as an entrepreneur as CTO & Co-Founder of Naxlink GmbH (an Enterprise Software Company, located in Berlin). From these positions. he knows both the perspectives of an IT expert and a customer and is thus a perfect translator between the two worlds.
Communication barriers in working with external IT companies was identified a challenge in the BalticMuseums team. Therefore Tomasz Naprawski, who as part of his work at University of Szczecin supports the BalticMuseums project, prepared a presentation for both our partners but also other interested parties, to understand main concepts and ways of thinking of programmers. He points to abbreviations used frequently and to an approach how to improve your own communication with programmers:
- Learn vocabulary
- It works better if you describe your concept in the first person.
- Set clear goals
- Use proper software to describe your vision
- Share or exchange information intern & extern
- Test & report
