On the 29. June 2015 EARP Integration hosted the economic mission from Breda, the Netherlands.
The mayor of Breda, Paul Depla, opened the meeting, in which we spoke about the possible cooperation and synergies between software companies from Breda and Wroclaw.
Piotr Stawinski, the CEO of EARP Integration and the board member of ITCorner association was talking about the unique opportunity to nearshore software services to Wroclaw’s local IT companies, as well as presented the idea behind the ITCorner cluster.
The representatives of the regional development authority NV REWIN West-Brabant, Marc-Paul van Halderen and Dennis van der Pas, as well as the representatives of City of Imagineers, Loren Rozendaal and Lisette Spee, were interested in discussing cooperation possibilities between Breda’s City of Imagineers cluster and ITCorner.
EARP Integration is opening a sales office in the Netherlands in August 2015, so we were happy to exchange information about the Dutch and Polish IT market during that meeting.
From 13th – 15th May 2015, a team of our developers took part in the conference GEECON which this year, was held in Krakow. Among all different topics, the biggest impression for our team was Big Data, the scaling of application and new trends in Java developers. GEECON was a great place to meet many different developers from all over Poland. All the participants at the conference have a common denominator, they want to know about the latest trends in software development. It is an excellent stepping stone from our daily tasks, to learning about the latest technology from the most well known global developers and their projects. After three days at the conference we came to realise that from all the interesting ideas we heard about to improve our daily problems from the technological side, we could also implement new ideas regarding work culture. However, it was not all work. On the cold May evenings we were able to drink some extremely tasty beer in the market square of Krakow.
