Our CTO Károly Kása has just returned from Berlin Buzzwords, Europe’s hottest geeky conference on scalability, search and data analysis. The two-day conference was dominated by presenters who are not just experts, but main developers of the most important open source tools in the realm of big data and enterprise search. Don’t worry if you couldn’t get to Berlin to get hands-on information about the latest developments, the organizers will make available every talk on the Internet. The friendly atmosphere made possible to get in touch with like minded attendees during the breaks.
We had a company workshop for our developers last Friday. Main themes were: Solr updates, new Java features, Android development.
Precognox has joined LinguaPark Cluster (http://www.linguapark.hu/) the largest cluster of language experts in the fields of translation, translation and language technologies and communication in Hungary. We are very proud to join a cluster with members from both academia and industry in a field that is one of the top priorities within the European Union.
In business life no tools can substitue personal contacts entirely. Our executive and development managers took part in twelve, pre-set meetings at the FutureMatch business persons' meeting, organized by CEBIT in Hannover in March.
We have been able to meet CEOs of South Korean, Italian, Croatian, Serbian, Spanish, Brazilian, Polish and even one Hungarian company. Several of these meetings are likely to come to fruition in the future.
