After ‘Lindholmen Software Development Day 2014’28 October 2014
Last week JCommerce representatives have had the opportunity to participate in Lindholmen Software Development Day 2014 that took place in Goteborg, Sweden.
Everything has started with a presentation contest half year before the main event – which we won!
Fortunately JCommerce has been selected to the group of 32 experts in the field of software development and we were able to share our thoughts at the keynote speech on the main track of the conference (more about our keynote speech you will find by visiting the dedicated website). A big surprise for us was the fact, that in the group of Swedish representatives only 2 Polish industry specialist were nominated to give a speech on the main track of the conference – which we are proud of!
Conference programme was full of hot topics nowadays such as: ‘Security in Internet of Things’, ‘Service oriented e-Health’; ‘Software Value Map’; ‘Scaling Agile’; ‘Big Data’ and many more. We have found the conference tracks full of innovative approach, great examples and a lot of practical examples. All of the speakers gave to the audience a “fresh” insights and new ideas when facing with certain trend.
This year conference was the 10th conference organized under: Software Day and attracted more than 600 industry experts (biggest by far). It seems that the ICT cluster in Sweden is rapidly growing and Business Region Goteborg needs alternatives around innovations and new collaboration options in the dynamic environment of software engineering.
Lindholmen Software Day allowed JCommerce to participate also in a networking event that took place day before the conference, Wednesday October 15th. Polish ICT cluster together with Business Region Goteborg organized a meeting point where both sides: Polish software companies and the Swedish one were able to interact and exchange thoughts around possible cooperation and new opportunities investigation. The networking event gave all of the participant the chance to shortly introduce their company services portfolio and areas where the possible cooperation can be executed.
As JCommerce is experienced in building cooperation with European scientific units (e.g. University of Bamberg is our strong partner in that field) we decided to put more effort and explore alternatives with University of Gothenburg, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Lindholmen Science Park – we met some of the mentioned scientific representatives directly at the conference event.
We got the clear overview how can we contribute by combining industry & university ecosystem in Europe. It seems that there are a lot of great opportunities and challenges awaiting!
We all are in ‘the connected society’. Let’s try to get most out of IT!
