DevReach 2013

This time QArea attended the major software development conference of Central & Eastern Europe – DevReach 2013 that was held in Sofia, Bulgaria, on October 1-2.

QArea team is always eager to participate in the biggest events of IT world to get more experience and inspiration for work. Our developers who were present at the conference found the delivered reports highly informative and creative.

DevReach conference takes place every year to give software developers a chance to share their ideas and knowledge with the fellow specialists and provide insights for further directions in modern IT trends. This year more than 40 speakers presented their speeches in two sessions at Sofia Event Center. Hosted by Telerik company the event was held in a very friendly and natural atmosphere. The speeches covered the key issues concerning Web, Mobile development, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, iOS, Android, HTML5, .NET, Cloud, JavaScript, Agile and Functional Programming, Quality/Testing, Databases, Tools and other areas. This time there were even more participants at DevReach. The problems discussed included both detailed issues of well-used technologies and the newly appeared prospective IT trends.

QArea participants had a great time at the conference and gained a lot of new professional experience. They had a chance to hear the leading IT specialists, know many practical programming tricks and tips, take part in the discussion of current problems and find alternative solutions from their fellows from all the Europe. It was surely an invaluable opportunity for any developer to boost their career chances as well. QArea developers especially appreciated the insights offered by Derik Whittaker in his speech “What is Web API? How to use it in the real world?”, Todd Anglin in “Making HTML5 Work Everywhere” and other presentators. Our testing specialists found such topics as “Ten Practical Tips for Automated Testing of Web Applications” by Jim Holmes and “JavaScript Testing Tactics” by Justin Searls very useful as well.

We are thankful to the DevReach organizers and look forward to participating in such a great event again!
