Split Tech City indeed organizes a lot of events for the local tech community. From the Split Tech City Festival, over the Split Tech Cup humanitarian tournament and NEXT Youth Conference, to meetups like Locals’n’Nomads, Women In Tech, and Split Startups Meetup just to name a few.
However, we’re not the only ones who are active – the members of our community are, too! 😀
That’s why we wanted to offer you a brief overview of the meetups organized by the companies that are part of Split Tech City – just to showcase how active our community is and how all of us are working towards making Split into a Mediterranean Tech Hub we already think it is!
Adriatic.hr, the leading tourist agency in Croatia, delighted the local tech and business community by initiating meetups called Digitalni Burin. In English it would be titled “Digital Bura” – you know, that powerful wind we get here in Split.
The goal of the meetup is to connect the local community with experts from various business fields and share knowledge and experience. The topics of the meetup vary – from those focused on the tech world to those that go beyond those topics. And, of course – great networking is a must!
Harfa International School initiated the organization of a series of Education for the Future meetups precisely to start a broader dialogue on the topic of education, but also to initiate concrete changes that need to happen in education today so that we can expect positive changes tomorrow.
What are the knowledge and skills that children need to be ready for the challenges of the future? What is life, what is school and where is the border between the two? How does parenting fit into all of this? You might think this is just for parents, but education should matter to us all, so everyone is welcome!
BipTalks Split is an event organized by Infobip. Many are already familiar with BipTalks meetups, which are regularly held in other cities in the region where Infobip has its offices – Zagreb, Vodnjan, Rijeka, Osijek, Sarajevo, Tuzla, etc.
Through these well-attended get-togethers, the Infobip team wants to introduce their methods and products to the audience, as well as exchange experiences with colleagues. Naturally, upon opening an office in Split, our city was the next BipTalks destination to be added to the list. The topics vary, and the networking is great – all in all, another not-to-miss tech event in Split!
Marketing Meetup Split was initiated by Klikeri and it’s tailored for everyone interested in marketing. Everyone is welcome: professionals working in agencies, employees working on marketing campaigns in their companies, freelancers, students, and anyone who wants to learn more about digital marketing.
The meetups are informal and relaxed, while their main goal is for everyone involved to learn, as well as exchange experiences and best practices.
Tinel is a regular meetup with interesting tech topics that is organized by Locastic with support from their partner Digitalna Dalmacija. They attract very interesting speakers in the industry to the meetup, so they can share their experience and knowledge with the local audience.
Networking is the main core of every business, and the initial purpose of Tinel is to provide everyone, from students to experts, a chance to share experiences and ideas, exchange contacts, and meet new like-minded people. And this meetup really succeeds in achieving that!
Postindustria, in cooperation with Alen Stojanović, revived the QA Meetup in Split. This particular cooperation arose out of a mutual desire to continue the tradition of sharing knowledge and gathering QA experts from Split and the region.
The culture of knowledge-sharing is Postindustria’s forte, so for them, this kind of event signifies the expansion of this kind of mindset beyond the borders of their own employees. The topics of the meetup change, but QA as its core focus remains. The meetup is open to anyone interested in this topic, so if you’re into QA you definitely shouldn’t miss it!
The young Tilde Loop team opened their office here and immediately added an event to Split’s tech calendar with their Tech Events. They host these meetups every quarter with topics and a format that changes but with the main goal of sharing their know-how and connecting with the community.
The events usually have a short networking and introduction, followed by the planned content (lecture, fireside chat, etc.), and then – more excellent networking! It’s open to anyone – from seasoned professionals to students. So, don’t be shy and attend the next one!
And there you have it – a brief overview of the way our community is keeping things interesting and highlighting those same values we have: openness and knowledge-sharing.
Mediterranean Tech Hub style! 😉
