What an energy today, on the second day of Techsylvania conference! We have good reasons to say that, with all the speakers in the house taking on some hot and great topics that really challenged us to look into the tech and innovation world a little bit further.
The day started with Mark Shuttleworth, the Ubuntu founder who gave us a demo on how IoT and programming will be changed in the future, making all the developers in the room quite happy.
The long-awaited moment has arrived, and we successfully check day one of Techsylvania conference off our list. But let us name at least a few of the most impressive things we’ve seen and learned today.
Techsylvania Conference Stage
There is a saying that who wakes up early goes far and we can totally agree with that, as it has all started early in the morning until the evening, with condensed talks of 20 minutes each, resuming all with about 22 speakers, including Tim Draper, DFJ founder, the highly reputed American investor to honour us into opening the conference.
For Mark Shuttleworth, his journey into the tech scene has been fulminant even from the beginning and also paved with a lot of success that few can count as their own. Because he will be one of the keynote speakers for the Techsylvania conference this year and also because his professional and personal life are something to look up to, let us pinpoint some of this achievements that made us so eager to know him.
“The Central and Eastern European region has become a major IT hub, spurring the international expansion of successful technology start-ups, particularly from Romania. Internationally acknowledged talent in software development has created a highly lucrative opportunity in Romania for technology investment”, says Bitdefender’s founder, Florin Talpeș.
Maybe you have wondered in the last few days if joining Techsylvania is really something that will help you learn, access and see new things in your area of interest. We will go past the cliche saying that you can learn and accumulate a lot of things from any event, because you really can, and rather get into the specific stuff to cast a light on the four major fields we have built the event on. Therefore, if you are an entrepreneur, an innovator or a developer, read further to find out what Techsylvania can do for you!
Nowadays, business development and innovation go hand in hand while the old saying of resting on one`s laurels is long taken into account. Especially in the tech field, where constant renewal and generation of solutions is a determining factor of a company`s survival.
That is why we have decided to tap into the subject and explore the innovation culture from a business perspective. That is what we found out:
Purses that incorporate a charger. Rings that glow when you get an email. Scarves that change their colour according to your mood. Not long ago, these objects would have been drawn out of a science-fiction movie. Not today, as the technology world is blending more and more with the fashion industry to create unique and revolutionary garments.
What do Google, Twitter and Adobe all have in common? Besides the fact that they are IT companies and also well-reputed in their field, there`s more to it than what meets the eye. According toForbes andBusiness Insider, all have an organisational culture that gets their names on the lips of professionals.
But how does that translate into business terms and what does it mean for the IT and technology sectors? Well, as you may guess, the best work environments get the brightest minds.
We often hear on the news about the education system that fails to work and to deliver valuable candidates for companies. This tends to be a loop that companies could prevent in one single step – investing in educating young talents, as well as their employees. But why is it worth for a company to put efforts into ongoing education? Here are 4 major reasons:
What makes Techsylvania so great, you would probably ask yourself. The answer may be the access to the latest gadgets & wearables, or the networking abundace. But above all that, the main reason why each one of you decides join our conference is the amazing talks on the stage and the brilliant, passionate people that get to be our speakers.
And since we know time is a scarce resource, we have been thinking about all of you, who maybe did not have the opportunity to participate at the first two editions and guess what? We are now giving you with the top 3 speeches from the last year`s edition. Of course, this is just a preview, as we are about to announce our new speakers for this year`s edition.
