Developers from Nis in English

April 19th, 2015

The actual title of this article about Serbian developers from Nis who blog/tweet/give_lectures in English language should’ve been - Developers from Nis doing stuff in English but the current title is shorter and rhymes better with Nish :)

This article is just a start and currently (at the moment of publishing) contains modest amount of information that I have on this subject which is far less than I initially had with IT companies in Nis. Let’s hope it’ll grow over time so ping me or comment and I’ll expand and update the article.

So here they are:

1. AngularJS - Таming the superhero (video) by Milos Boskovic

2. Mijalko’s blog

3. Uros Lates’s blog

4. Umpirsky’s landing page (let’s hope he’ll blog something outside his twitter :)

5. Dusan Kostic’s glamhacker

6. Jovica Ilic’s blog

7. Nenad Mancevic

8. Nikola Radosavljevic

9. Ana Milutinovic

(to be continued…)

60 IT companies in Nis, Serbia

October 25th, 2014

I am happy to announce that the unofficial list of IT companies in my town (Nis, Serbia) now contains 60 companies. I hope that they will continue to be successful for many years to come.

The good news is also that young people from Nis recognized the potential of IT leading to the situation where for the first time in last 20 years Faculty of Electronic Engineering (University of Nis) had over 560 students applied in the first selection row. Also, Nis IT branch of Metropolitan University has doubled the number of freshmen (from 25 to 50 this year). Faculty of Natural Sciences (Informatics department), and two colleges of applied technical sciences had also similar increases in the number of new students.

Overall, seems that IT businesses continue to grow in Nis at an increasing pace and that they will continue to do so in the coming few years at least.

Go Nis!

Latest updates to the list: Code control (an interview on their new project SupportYard can be read here (in Serbian)), IT Centar (they were dedicated to IT education but now they have a mini IT company inside), Play on pixels Neopix, and Transactor Technologies Limited. I’ve also updated the number of employees for http://peaksel.com from 12 to 17.

Corrections: Play on pixels is actually now Neopix; added full name for Transcator and updated # of employees for both.

Why would you spend time on warez sites?

March 3rd, 2009

Even if not being a “regular” warez user it would be good if you stay informed about what is happening inside warez community.
One reason would be finding really popular and valuable programs by browsing warez sites. This is better than searching through regular download sites because programs found on these kind of sites are often more relevant to the field in which they belong. One reason could be this - If somebody put an effort to crack a piece of software then that software has some value for sure :).

I use: http://www.area51warez.info/ and http://softarchive.net/.

Freelancing site(s) …

October 29th, 2008

If you are an active member of some programming community you won’t probably need any of existing freelancing sites since your friends usually have enough jobs to pass to you…

But in case you still want a recommendation for a freelance site then here it is: Elance.

You can however find more jobs on others but at rates that are usually significantly lower than on Elance.

Happy freelancing.

The Value of Community

October 18th, 2008

When you’re stuck with a programming, installation, or other similar problem your closest friend is usually Google. But, as many of you already know, having a friend that is expert in an area can in many cases lead to solving your problem lot quicker than “googling” for an answer. Friend can usually point you to the right track or give you the straight answer immediately. Now, imagine that you have thousands of friends Read more…
