Infopark's Christmas Charity

Last Christmas, we decided to give the best gift - our support - to those who are in real need.

Our teammates have chosen three projects for the education of children in Africa. All projects are known to us and use 100% of the funds locally. Business partners of Infopark have voted by click for one of the projects, and we have donated 10 € per click.

As a result of the poll, which ended on December 31st, the highest donation will be given to Victoria School (48.33% of all votes) in Tanzania.

In order to escape poverty and to give the children a better future, the main goal of many Tanzanian families is to provide their children with a good education. Despite the efforts of the state, the public school system in Tanzania is in a difficult situation. There are too few schools and too few teachers. Underperforming children and those with learning disabilities have almost no chance to pass the state exams. The Viktoria School offers a good education. It is 10 kilometers away from the city center of Mwanza, the second largest city in Tanzania. For particularly needy families, there is a sponsorship program.

Abaana Uganda, a small association that financially and ideologically supports a children's home in Uganda and stands up in Germany for intercultural tolerance and a more differentiated picture of the African continent gained over 28.33% of all votes.

Peter Hurrelmann's aid initiative "Father Charles Convention e.V.", which improves the living conditions including clean drinking water supply and development of medical care in the 600-inhabitant village of Kasambya in western Uganda, gained 23.33% of votes.

We are grateful for your commitment!

It's THIS time of the year! Infopark's Christmas trip to Wroclaw

Once again the Christmas season at Infopark was celebrated with festivities and joy. This time it was even more exciting because we had a great opportunity to participate in the opening of our new office in Wroclaw, Poland.

Friday was then a special day for all of us. The Berlin team woke up quite early to assemble and board the bus by 8:00 AM to get to the beautiful capital of Lower Silesia. We arrived around noon, and our polish colleagues welcomed us with delicious traditional polish cuisine. There were Sledziki and some Bigos, Christmas carols and of course many nice thematic decorations.

It seems that gone are those days when Infopark was just a small initiative run by friends who had a dream to build a software company. Instead of stifling rooms and one computer shared between three programmers - which was our reality in 1994 - we now have great office spaces in two countries where we still tailor our products with passion and engagement. And also we know how to have fun, especially after hours. That was proven on the same afternoon when we strolled comfortably around the Wroclaw Christmas market and were enchanted by the unique atmosphere of this place.

We spent the evening in one of the best restaurants in the city, "Malarska", and enjoyed the DJ's music with delicious Pierogi and Borscht. The next morning we started with a rich breakfast and visited the Hydropolis knowledge center. Here we could learn and discover a lot of interesting things about water. The last stop of our trip was the stylish restaurant "Korba Kuchnia", where we nourished ourselves in a nice atmosphere for the trip home. With plenty of cultural impressions, well-stocked bellies and a great load of Christmas spirit, we were driven back to Berlin on Saturday afternoon. A Christmas party, which one likes to remember!


#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

Throwback of our HR tour @ Wroclaw - Part I

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.

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.
