The Shift Developer Conference is the biggest developer conference in Southeast Europe. Over the past seven years, Shift Conference provided visitors an ideal platform for successful business networking. Spanning two days, renowned speakers from all over the world present informative and exciting lectures and workshops to 1500 attendees. Shift Dev offers tech enthusiasts the chance to get in touch with the latest methods and trends in the industry in one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia, Split. Thus the participants can enjoy both, the event and the charming and historical flair of the coastal city. This year's location was the Radisson Blu Hotel, which was particularly suitable due to its modern architecture. We were very proud to participate as a 5 star sponsor and to represent our company with a selected team at our booth.
Soon after the opening ceremony, which was initiated by the organiser Ivan Burazin, the conference was filled with numerous visitors. There were a total of 25 stands, 23 main speakers and 8 workshops at this year's event. This provided us the opportunity to talk to representatives of large regional companies as well as medium-sized companies, in particular about working with Atlassian products. During these discussions we clearly recognised that compared to last year's conference, the interest in Atlassian tools has increased significantly. We also noticed that although more people started using Atlassian products, they are still not familiar with the various application possibilities of the products. Therefore the excitement of many visitors was even greater after we introduced them to the advantages of agile working methods with short live demo functions. As a Solution Partner, these moments are of course very pleasing for us. We also took the opportunity to present our partner programs like Linchpin, Mattermost and Pledge 1%. It was also very nice to see that especially young people were interested in learning more about our work.
In order to create a balance to the many technical discussions and lectures, we provided Mario Kart at our booth, so visitors could just relax during a game round. But to make sure it didn't get too boring, we combined the whole experience with a competition in which the visitors could participate daily. The prize was a wellness voucher for the spa at Radisson Blu. The experienced team of Shift Conference organised evening events as well. Just like the conference itself, these took place at the city's most popular locations. All participants were able to continue their conversations in a more casual atmosphere or just have a drink and dance.
