The goal of the EDD as a development event of the company is to exchange practices and experiences with colleagues, to share and learn from each other. The EDD takes place twice a year and is organised by ERNIans for ERNIans, so 100% in own production.

As also during past editions, some customers and colleagues from other sites joined the ERNI Spain People to enjoy this great event.

ERNI Spain communities are kind of an engine that moves the wheel.

Communities fuel the knowledge of ERNI. This is a bottom-up initiative where Group Principals, Subject Matter Experts, Business Unit Leaders and all the employees around one topic or subject like e.g. Agile, QA, Embedded, .Net, FrontEnd, Virtual Reality…. share what they know and are capable of. It’s common that members of each community propose workshops around their own expertise, but everyone can propose content for the EDD.

This time, the topics were related to Blockchain Identities, (song of blocks and chains) that transformed blockchain in an authentic Game Of Thrones. How to create a videogame in Javascript showed how to develop an amazing video game in a few hours.

Further workshops revolved around How to use GIT, How to understand the processes and concepts of Machine Learning, Basics of IoT and How to introduce NLP in your life.

Public speaking without anxiety concentrated on using advanced techniques like Augmented Reality.

Managing Director of ERNI Spain Gerard Esparducer who usually collaborates in this event, on this occasion together with the Human Resources department he showed us how to lead in conflict situations.


In this edition of EDD, we also have heard the speech of Desiree Vila who shared her incredible story of how to overcome and embrace any change in our lives, always from a positive perspective with us.

EDD is an event where everyone contributes. Attendees and speakers learn one from another. You meet partners from other projects and talk about current challenges, share experiences from other sites and within the Spanish units., furthermore We can receive direct feedback from customers about our internal initiatives.
The description done by one of my colleagues, in my opinion, is the best summary of all the EDD spirit and goals:


“The EDDs are a great opportunity to contribute to the community teaching about your PASSION. It requires INDEPENDENCE to prepare the tracks and RESPONSIBILITY for the delivered lessons. EDD wouldn’t be possible without TRUST between the colleagues to prepare such a great event!”
