Furthermore, there are successes with Agile education expressed through courses, trainings and events we organized. Brief overview, but very content year.
There are some significant milestones when it comes to software development field, we are very proud. The first one is our start-up project MatchAbout, is a universal global platform that enables networking from event to event and in between, without any limits, enabling users to collect contacts, materials, and any other valuables from event to event. Designed to boost events activities and to help organizers and stakeholders to find mutual interest, Match About had a premiere this year, even more it was official application at several events: 3rd Agile Serbia Conference, SEE IT Summit, PyCon Balkans 2018 and SuperVoice Talent contest! Still, performance becomes more better and better with every single day, so for the next year we expect real impact on our market and beyond.
