Norway is known for its stunning Fjords, Northern Lights, Viking heritage, and even heart-shaped waffles! But something that people may not know about is Norway’s JavaZone conference, which has actual Vikings participating, well, sort of. The community event was held in Oslo during the 7th and 8th of September and organised for developers to learn new things, share knowledge, and socialise. Stella and Vasilis from our back-end software development team attended the two full days of inspiring presentations, engaging workshop sessions, networking, fun games, and parties.
“I attended the JavaZone event mainly to gain insight on new tools and technologies but also generally elevate my experience as a developer. There were many ideas and new technologies that we were introduced to that can be of use to our processes at PHILOSHOPIC. The conference was also lots of fun, filled with exciting challenges/games held by the conference partners, and a great party with DJs, bands, and lots of beer! The experience overall was incredible. It was the perfect combination of educational, enjoyable, and inspiring. It was also impressive to see the Norwegian technology ecosystem and the way they are self-sustained as a country in the field, and how beautiful the country is itself.” — Vasilis Verras
We strongly believe that to create something amazing we must do something amazing. That’s why we invest in getting our PHILOSHOPERS to attend conferences around the world, bring back updates about what’s new in their field of expertise, expand their knowledge and grow professionally, as well as get inspired and have great experiences.
