As Index reports, announcing the first American edition of their developer conference, Infobip board member for developer experience Ivan Burazin and Infobip Shift Miami project manager Nikola Radisic say that they are expecting five hundred to a thousand visitors with prominent names from the developer world in Miami.
“We will present and share the Croatian conference in Miami with the local and regional scene and lay the foundation for future editions,” says Radisic.
Miami is also said to be a growing tech hub in the US, with a growing community of developers and startups.
“More and more young people are interested in the developer profession”
Infobip board member Burazin says that the plan is for Infobip Shift USA to remain an annual developer event.
“Whether it will always take place in Miami is hard to say, but it is a city that has an active and growing tech scene and an attractive energy, so for now, we see it as a long-term host,” says the board member of Infobip, the first Croatian unicorn.
Asked about the importance and growing popularity of developer conferences, he replied that these conferences are important because they connect developers from all over the world, bringing them to one place where they can meet and exchange ideas.
He believes this is a form of investment in the knowledge of developers, who, in addition to trends and experiences at conferences, can also find a new employer, client or partner, or a new solution.
As the popularity of this profession grows, so does the popularity of these conferences and the need for “networking” and learning, especially among young people who, according to Burazin, are increasingly interested in the developer profession.
Greater international visibility
“Infobip, like most global technology companies, invests increasing efforts in building relationships with developers and improving the developer experience,” says Burazin.
When asked about the expectations and differences between Infobip Shift Miami and Infobip Shift in Zadar in autumn, he says that the Zadar edition has already been recognised as one of the largest and highest quality in Europe, which is also confirmed by the fact that in 2022 it attracted visitors from more than 50 countries around the world.
That’s why there are high expectations for Infobip Shift Zadar 2023, and the company announced a top program and production for September 18 and 19.
“I believe that the conference in the US will confirm the strength of the Infobip Shift brand and that we will be able to transfer the energy of Zadar to Miami. I also expect that all the participants of Infobip Shift in Miami will leave the conference with new knowledge and contacts and excellent impressions quickly transmitted in developer circles,” concluded Burazin.
