#Grill.RB #Grill.JS @ Wroclaw

Infopark and Scrivito supported the Grill.RB and Grill.JS event this year again.

The Grill.RB event took place on the 10 - 11 of August 2018.

Ruby on Rails developers from all over Poland arrived to this event and it was a great opportunity for us to exchange our knowledge and experience with them.

The following weekend we attended the Grill.JS event where several speakers were talking about various aspects of JavaScript.

Our newest content management system Scrivito was one of the supporters and our CTO Thomas Witt contributed a talk to the Grill.JS event about "Mastering CORS in complex JavaScript-based applications".

Apart from talks there was also a nice barbecue for us at both events.

We're glad to be part of the community of the Grill.RB/Grill.JS and we are looking forward to the upcoming events

Scrivito goes to the USA

In February 2018 our newest content management system Scrivito was launched.

In order to help  market it to world wide, we decided that America will be the best starting point for it.

One of our highlights was the #SWSX ( South by Southwest) @ Austin, Texas.SWSX is a massive two week conference that covers  music, film and of course, everything that hot in the world of today's technology.

At SWSX Scrivito co-hosted a wildly succesful founders & entreprenuers networking event a Buffalo Billiards overlooking the main drag on the 6th Street where all the action was.

In addition, our US Director of Marketing Douglas Patten attended several more Meetups helping spreading the word about Scrivito and the advantages of a 100% maintenance free CMS.

Throwback of our HR tour @ Wroclaw - Part I

Since we have an office in Wroclaw now, we have been spending quite a bit of time, there because of the fantastic IT events and all the wonderful that attend them.

Here is a very quick summary for you.

In March 2018 our CTO Thomas Witt contributed a speech to the  local Meetup group React.js about "The JavaScript web development revolution - how serverless computing and reactjs is going to change web development".

The event was organized by the local software engineer Michal Zalecki who has been hosting these react.js meetups for quite a while.

After the presentations, there was time for networking and meeting some of the fantastic attendees.

Throwback of our HR Tour @ Wroclaw - Part II

Meetups were not the only place you could find Infopark over the past months, we also attended several HR events such as Meetnight, Code Europe, Career Expo and the Academic Job Fair.

Every event took place at a different location, so this also gave us the ability to get to know Wroclaw better!

Additionally, we also contributed to the HR events some interesting tech talks our software developer David Császár held a talk about "Testing a Website with TestCafe".

Overall, the meetups gave us the possibility to support the local tech community, get to know the local developers, and to increase our brand awareness.

Christmas Party @ Wroclaw

IMG 3291

There has been quite a bit of research lately about what makes people happy at work and how companies who invest in employee satisfaction enjoy a higher level of productivity and sucess.

Within smaller companies its easier to maintain personal relationships, but it can be a very different situation with large companies

As we are company of 100+ people with three offices on two separate continents, so as you can imaging, can be a challenge.

Personal relationships within the whole company is one of our top priorities.Therefore we regularly organize regular social events for our team.

2017 we organized a Christmas trip to Wroclaw for our whole team including a overnight stay at the Sofitel, Wroclaw  to discover the Christmas market and get everyone into the holiday spirit.
