May the 19th, 2023 – The Croatian Infobip Shift conference is ready for its very first edition across the pond later this month on the American city of Miami, bringing together American and European speakers.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Croatian Infobip Shift conference, aimed at developers, will have its very first US edition on Tuesday, May the 23rd in Miami. The Perez Museum, a recognisable landmark of Miami, will host speakers, companies and visitors who mostly come from the US, South America and Europe. With its first event on another continent, this absolute favourite Croatian developer conference will take a big step towards achieving its goal – connecting and strengthening the global developer ecosystem.
“After months of organisation, everything is finally ready for the Croatian Infobip Shift conference in Miami and I believe we have a great event ahead of us that will showcase Shift to the American developer audience in the proper way. The conference is smaller in size than the one we have here in Croatia, but its content and programme remain in line with our high standards, which is how we want to stand out on the challenging American tech scene. We’ve prepared an impressive list of speakers, since we want to present ourselves as being top quality and leave a real impression following the first edition, and I’m sure that we’re going to achieve that on Tuesday,” Nikola Radisic, the head of the Shift Miami project at Infobip, stated.
In addition to this gathering of developers, the goal of the Croatian Infobip Shift conference is to bring this remarkable domestic company closer to the American developer community and thereby continue to strengthen the footprint of the first Croatian unicorn across the pond over in the USA. The organisers pointed out that Miami was chosen because it’s a city that is rapidly developing as a new technology centre, and they want to make Shift an annual event in Miami that will grow over time and become recognisable on the American and international tech scene.
The all-day programme of Shift in Miami will be opened by John Romero, a video game developer behind more than 180 titles, among which the most famous are Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein. Romero is also called the ”father” of this type of video game, the so-called First Person Shooter (FPS), and when in Miami, he will share his rich experience gained during more than 30 years of work in the challenging gaming industry.
In addition to him, fifteen other speakers, developer experts from well-known technology companies, including Postman, Gitlab, Cloudlfare, Elastic and Hashicorp, will give lectures at the conference. The topics which will be discussed will cover various aspects of today’s industry, including the pervasiveness of artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact on the development profession.
“The Croatian Infobip Shift conference in Europe is undoubtedly one of the most impressive conferences I’ve spoken at, and I believe that the same awaits us in Miami. I appreciate the fact that the organisers put a lot of effort into the quality of the speakers, topics and programmes, and such a level of invested effort is always seen and felt at the conference,” said Gift Egwuenu from Cloudflare, whose technology supports more than 25 million websites, and who will be one of the speakers at the conference.
During more than a decade of being held in Europe, Shift has distinguished itself on the technology scene thanks to a strong focus on the quality of the programme that it combines with a relaxed atmosphere where developers can more easily connect with their colleagues. It will try to repeat this exact formula in Miami.
“Developers come to conferences not only to listen to lectures, many primarily come to meet other developers and companies, that is, potential clients, partners, colleagues and employers. That’s why we prepared the EXPO part with the sponsor’s exhibition stands, the lounge parts for meetings, and we’ll end the day-long gathering with a party in the Wynwood district, the artistic heart of the city,” concluded Radisic.
This combination of high-quality educational, business and entertainment content provided by Shift has put Croatia on the map of must-see tech destinations in Europe. In addition to Miami, the Croatian Infobip Shift conference will also be held in Zadar on September the 18th and 19th this year, and two editions in one year will further strengthen the position of this conference as an event that successfully gathers the global developer community around it.
