It’s November. For some developers it’s just an ordinary month – for some of them it means maintenance of projects, for some – building something cool on their own. Some of them visit Build Stuff. A lot of them, actually – this year Build Stuff has had around 1,400 attendees.

Build Stuff is an annual conference for developers being organized in Lithuania. Conference theme for this year – Programming Jungle.
As usual, the conference started off with a welcome talk:
After the welcome talk, we had a keynote delivered by David Phillips who gave insights on storytelling and techniques how to enhance stories – after that, Patrick Kua spoke about talking with tech leads.
On Thursday, we saw Julie Lerman covering the usage of legacy systems:

The next day, we saw Alexandra White on stage speaking about the importance of documenting code and keeping things simple too – she spoke about the importance of proper code documentation and understandable READMEs.
The event, as usual, had many different activities including a basketball game, focus-controlled cars and others – we even had a button-clicking game provided by Oracle where the winner is a person which manages to click the most buttons in 30 seconds:
Hey, we even had style corners with stickers on the table:
The Jungle Party
And, of course, no event would be complete without some popcorn on the table, would it?
