DevHeroes – meetup for Ruby and JavaScript developers organized by Spark Solutions

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.

Check how your site looks on iPhone 6 (or any other mobile) without having to buy one

We all know how important it is for your website to look well on any device (our article on RWD here). 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? 😉

The Startup Nation: 8 million people and over 6,000 startups

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.

How much should your MVP cost?

You want to build the Next Big Thing. And you have a pretty good idea how it should work, look & feel. Great, now it’s time to find a dev team to build your MVP. But how much should your MVP cost? A freelancer will tell you it should cost $5,000 to $15,000. An experienced CTO will tell you it should cost between $50,000 and $150,000. Which one is right? Are they even talking about the same thing? No, they’re not!

SPOILER: it will cost you $50k to develop a Twitter MVP, $100k for an Instagram, $500k for a Facebook and $1M for an Uber. US dollars when hiring a US dev team.

You must have already heard about Responsive Web Design (RWD), which is basically about providing the user (customer) with a smooth experience through your website on any device.

“Heading into 2016, it’s clear that consumers have shifted to mobile, and businesses know they need to catch up.” – Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO
