Šta nam donosi Google+ ?

googleplus

Google je predstavio svoj novi “društveni projekat” koji ima pretenzije da premaši Fejsbuk.  Time što se nisu fokusirali samo na društveni uticaj, nego ponudili više različitih servisa, možda i imaju šanse da u svojoj nameri uspeju.

Na prvi pogled Google+ mnogo podseća na Fejsbuk. Struktura home stranice je skoro identična, ali u Google stilu – bela pozadina, malo boja, jednostavnost i lakoća korišćenja.

Servisi koje ovaj projekat omogućava su Circles, Hangouts, Instant Upload, Sparks i Huddle. (more…)

First How To Web conference in BelgradePrvi How To Web u Beogradu

(This post is also available in Serbian)
On June, 16th for the first time in Belgrade was held How To Web conference with a purpose to promote entrepreneurs and startup projects in Serbia. Twelve great speakers were sharing their advises, worth of listening. They were more than pleasured to speak with people during presentations and on networking breaks.

It was one day event in Kulturnom Centru Grad, in an interesting space that contributed to the entire impression. I admit I was a little skeptical when I saw the space outside, but I was mistaken – it was more than appropriate.

On the ground floor was the popular TwittWall where were listed all tweets followed with #htwbgd – official conference hashtag.

What made this conference special is – it took only one day, brought together high-quality speakers,  interesting presentations, well organised agenda, tight timelines and good positive energy in the air.

Presenters

Selection of speakers, I believe, was the hard part but the honor goes to the whole team at IT Događaji. As the conference was aimed to startups and web, I think that all key areas were “covered”. Visitors were able to hear advice from the founder of a successful startup projects in Europe, their experiences and problems they have encountered. War stories – as Tomaž Šolfa, founder Vox.io project said, everybody likes to hear war stories and learn a lot from them. He shared the story about the last 4 years – from concept to implementation  and how he managed to achieve success and make the browser based product competitive to Skype – in Ljubljana.

Luka Arbus in front of ShoutEm conveyed the story of Croatia’s startup, based on pivoting – when, why and how to change the focus of the project. In addition to Luka’s story of finding investors, Katy Turner from EdenVentures presented great tips on how find investors and what are the steps you should follow to access them.

On how to run a startup in Serbia a story was shared by Vladimir Nikolic founder of Limundo and Ilija Studen, founder of activeCollab web based collaborative. Jeffrey Treichel , founder of Kolektiva, was speeaking about experience of doing business in Serbia and what to do once you get investments.

The most eagerly awaited lecture was held at the very end, when Mike Butcher, editor of TechCrunch Europe discovered the secret of how to get to the influential journalist and make them write about your project.

Patrick de Laive, one of the founders of the popular blog TheNextWeb talked about new ideas and success of TwitterCounter startup. During his lecture, he said an interesting thing:

The best way to predict the future is to invent it. – @patrick

Startup Challenge

 

As a part of the conference Startup Challenge was held in which participated BirthdayRocksMediaToolkitTaksikoMobiPatrol and SiteCake.

Each project was interesting in its own way, but I must admit that I was impressed with young enthusiastic team from Taksiko, and SiteCake’s ease of use. The winner is SiteCake project. You can read more detailed about each in a few days on my  blog.

GeekSensation

As an icing on the cake, the organizers organized the first and unique GeekSensation party.

Attendance was excellent and all were delighted with creative visitor ideas and geek music. One of the hits was the theme from Supermen movie. More photos from a party you can find at the fan page of IT events.

#win

The overall impression is a complete #win according to the comments of visitors and participants. My personal impression – Share Conference was great but HowToWeb beat and pushed the limits! Congratulations to the team, you have organized a great event! See you next year, for sure!

You were here? Share the impressions!

U Beogradu je u četvrtak, 16. Juna po prvi put održana How To Web konferencija sa ciljem da promoviše preduzetnički duh i podstakne razvoj startup projekata kod nas. Okupila je  12 zaista izuzentih predavača koje je bilo korisno čuti. Nesebično su podelili svoja znanja i iskustva sa posetiocima, kako u toku samih prezentacija tako i kasnije na pauzama za networking.

Jednodnevna konferencija se održala u Kulturnom Centru Grad koji je svojim specifičnim enterijerom doprineo celokupnom utisku. Priznajem da sam bila malo skeptična kada sam videla prostor spolja, ali sam se prevarila – bilo je i više nego prikladno.

U prizemlju se nalazio i popularni Twitter Wall, gde su mogli da se prate tvitovi pod #htwbgd – oficijelnim hashtagom konferencije.

Ono što je učinilo ovu konferenciju odličnom je to što je trajala samo jedan dan, okupila kvalitetne predavače, prezentacije su bile zanimljive, agenda je bila dobro isplanirana, nisu probijeni termini i sve je bilo praćeno nekom čudnom pozivitnom energijom u vazduhu. (more…)

Osmeh – univerzalni jezik koji nas spaja

kids-smiling

 

Generalno ne volim podele i ne delim ljude spram boje kože, jezika koji govore, mesta gde žive, pesama koje slušaju, stila oblačenja, statusa… Ljudi su ljudi. Različiti. Sve do jednoga. Na kraju sveta ili u komšiluku, svejedno je. Ako mi prija njihovo društvo, zar je ostalo bitno?

Kao nosilac takvog mišljenja, ne svatam one druge koji imaju problem sa tim što se neko rodio na drugom kontinentu, u drugom okruženju, naučen drugim principima. (more…)
