Infobip Shift ’21, the largest developer conference in Eastern Europe, celebrates its jubilee
Infobip Shift Conference set to welcome 3000 attendees from September 7-8 in the largest developer gathering in Eastern Europe
London UK and Vodnjan, Croatia: July 20, 2021 – Global communications company Infobip, following its recent news announcing the strategic acquisition of Shift, today unveils plans for the new renamed Infobip Shift conference. Now in its tenth year, the developer conference will be held September 7-8 and is expected to welcome more than 3,000 people at what organizers believe will be the biggest development event in Europe in 2021.
Infobip’s DevDays conference attended by the company’s engineers immediately precedes the Shift event, mixing the two occasions to create a nearly week-long tech festival.
During the two-day Shift Conference, 60 of the industry’s top speakers from companies such as Microsoft, Google, Adobe and many more will perform on 5 stages, each dedicated to specific discussion avenues. Workshops will also take place, and the entire program will end with a Startup showcase.
In addition to the formal speaker program, a large outdoor space known as “The Garden” is available for relaxed conversations, networking and business meetings.
Marin Tomičić, long-time partner of Infobip’s Chief Developer Experience Officer Ivan Burazin, and project manager of the Infobip Shift conference says: “In a few weeks, the developers attending this conference will experience something truly spectacular. From the venue itself which includes an outdoor space resembling what you would expect from a summer festival to the quality of the conference program, I’m sure there will be something for everyone. We’re incredibly lucky to be able to welcome some of the best speakers in the developer world, including David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the Ruby on Rails framework and Val Head from Adobe. The event ends with an afterparty for which we have organized something really unique. ”
Following the decision to merge the Shift conference with Infobip’s DevDays event – each previously held separately and in different locations (Spilt and Tuhelj, Croatia respectively) – this joint tech event will be held in a new location, in the city from Zadar on Dalmatia. the coast. In the coming years, it is likely that the combined event will take place in different parts of Croatia.
The Tenth Jubilee Edition will not only be bigger than any Shift to date, but the entire visitor experience promises to deliver a great experience, whether you attend conferences, participate in workshops. , work with partners or hire startups.
Ivan Burazin, Chief Developer Experience Officer at Infobip concludes: “My vision since 2012 has been to create the largest global development conference, but also to strengthen Croatia’s connection with the global development scene. Over the years, we have grown and we are getting closer to our goal. With Infobip, we got what we needed: the support of a large company for a national conference in order to have a global reach and become a leader. With Infobip, we have everything we needed to make Shift a world-class conference, and now the responsibility lies with the young and motivated Infobip team led by Marin Tomičić, who have proven over the past 5 years that he could meet the high expectations placed on him. “
