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.
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.
