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.
According to WSJ in 2016 Ecommerce accounted for 25% of all consumer spending over three days through Black Friday. That’s a huge deal, considering that Ecommerce share in all holiday retail sales in 2016 was around 10% of a market worth $885B.
If the fourth quarter is the best time of the year in Ecommerce, then Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the greatest opportunity for online retailers for a piece of that huge brick-and-mortar pie.
This is work in progress. By no means over. First iteration. Enjoy! If you can…

On April 12th, 2016 the historic, first DevHeroes meetup gathered a crowd of software engineers who decided to combine their superpowers for that one special evening. It was hosted by Campus Warsaw, one of Google’s hubs for startup communities placed in some of the most innovative cities like London, Tel Aviv, Madrid, Sao Paolo and Seoul. Campus Warsaw is located in an old vodka factory (yes, vodka;) on the right bank of the Vistula river. This gives the place a unique atmosphere and makes it one of the favourite spots for young entrepreneurs and innovators.
We all know how important it is for your website to look well on any device (our article on RWDhere). So you may be wondering how to check the website on various devices without having to own them all. Sounds like the Lord of the Rings, but without the rings, right? 😉
Do you remember ICQ? This instant messaging software used by over 100 million people worldwide was founded in Israel in 1996! Since then a lot has happened on the Israeli startup and innovation scene. No wonder that the Tel Aviv area is sometimes called the Sillicon Wadi (Valley in Hebrew). Israel truly is The Startup Nation.
