DevHeroes Meetup #1: heroes are not born, they are self-made

DevHeroes meetup, a place to meet your fellow Developer, QA professional / Tester, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Project Manager, was hosted by Spark Solutions on September 19th, 2017, at Nowy Świat Muzyki in the heart of Warsaw. It was a time away from the keyboard, time for inspirational talks, chatting and networking with like-minded IT professionals.

The mission of Dev Heroes meetups is to get people who are doers together, share their true stories of amazing accomplishments, recharge batteries and get inspired to face greater challenges than ever before.

None of us is born as a hero, it takes a lot of work, commitment and sheer willpower to become one.

At each meeting we will tackle topics from three areas:

→  System Architecture

→  Productivity

 True Stories
