We said our goodbyes to May whose tech events certainly didn’t disappoint any of the faithful followers. Conferences, meetups and workshops managed to do that which even the Sun had failed: warm us up.
What awaits us in June are solace and the gentle calling for a real summer, but the list of IT events ahead of us is anything but short.
It was the first day of this month that was reserved for our first community gathering: in the area of PICS@FESB we held the seventh issue of “Women in tech meetup Split” where Ivana Matić, CEO of Women in Adria gave her lecture. The founder and chief editor of this successful media project spoke of the challenges she faced on her way to success, both as an employer and employee, as well as a mother of three. The lecture spurred an interesting discussion among the audience and they all expressed their satisfaction with the productive morning, and an interest in any upcoming meetups that are to cover similar topics.
Below you will find the overview of the remainder of the announced events in June and we kindly ask of you to inform us of any similar events we might have missed. ☺
As previously announced, we will be hosting an event where visitors will have a unique opportunity to listen to presentations from several Split IT companies and find out all about the opportunities they offer to their (future) interns and employees. Six companies, members of Split Tech City (SeekandHit, Blazing Edge, Lilcodelab, Sub Rosa Group, Agilo, Zadnja Stranica), are to present themselves to an audience of over 70 young people that have applied so far, five of which will have the chance to present their own “Personal Elevator Pitch” to maximise their chances of becoming the companies’ future intern/employee. Applications are mandatory here.
The Split crew that handles the QA questions (attention! this doesn’t refer to questions and answers, but to quality assurance! :D) hangs out frequently, has coffee and beer and shares inspirations and knowledge. At June’s edition of QAva, topic discussions for future QA meetups will be brewing so this serves as an ideal opportunity to get acquainted with this interesting bunch and throw a few suggestions their way! You can apply here.
As part of the project “New development stage of the Split Entrepreneurial Accelerator” conducted by the Split Entrepreneurial Accelerator, a lecture will be held by Hrvoje Prpić, one of the most famous entrepreneurial business angels in Croatia. The lecture will be thematically structured into two halves: How to Acquire Funds for a Startup – The Investors’ Viewpoint and Business Internationalisation. The number of participants is limited, so sign up as soon as possible via this form: http://bit.ly/2XkIed7
At the next ML/AI meeting there will be a return to specific applications of Machine Learning: for instance, you will find out how to analyse buyer/visitor behaviour and divert marketing or other activities in an optimal fashion as well as how to make your own system which adds advanced features to your code. The opportunity to learn all of this is going to be presented to you in the best possible way by making a specific application based on the material and data the organisers will prepare. You can apply here.
The 119th Open Coffee brings us a story about creating a slightly different company and a professional collaborative platform, which gives an interactive presentation showcasing the trends in the creative industry through experience of working within the architectural and design scene.
Split architect Toni Boban, the founder of “Boban + partners d.o.o.”, is going to speak about his first entrepreneurial steps, creating a platform as a network of young professionals, securing access to the market, team collaboration in the creative industry, the application of advanced technologies in the creative process, and the trends in the creative industries of architecture and design. Do not miss this interesting subject, sign up here.
On June 15 Split will enter the global map of Global DevOps Bootcamps (GDBC), a free global event in the form of a hackathon where the participants will familiarise themselves with the newest DevOps trends as well as compete with teams from all around the world through practical work, i.e. by completing challenges of maintaining applications in production. The solutions will be based on generic and widely accepted DevOps practices and principles that are independent of development technologies and platforms, therefore developmental engineers and operatives of all profiles will be able to put to use the acquired knowledge about robust DevOps practices in their own work. You can find more details and sign up here.
More information will be disclosed soon.
At the end of June, the University of Split will host the fourth Conference on Smart and Sustainable Technologies which will bring about many interesting lectures about topics such as IoT, Machine Learning, smart cities, etc.
The programme sounds quite promising; all the details can be found on the official website of the conference!
