    We are ready to enter the 4th phase of socially-responsible project “Code for a Cause 3”! So far, we have asked the local organisations to send their ideas, the citizens of Novi Sad have voted for the best projects on our social media profiles, and we have sent an open call to designers and design agencies to help us create functional designs for the chosen projects.

    Design agencies Elder, Saturized and Baseline were the first ones to jump on board and join this initiative! We would like to thank you once again for wanting to give your contributions and improve the city we all live in!


    Join us at the Hackathon in October!

    If you share our opinion that we can have a bigger impact if we join our strengths, keep on reading. ;-)

    Who Can Join Us in the Phase #4?

    From the very beginning of Code for a Cause, we knew we wanted to include IT enthusiasts outside of our company into the final event - 48-hour long hackathon. And, in the past two years, we have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people who wanted to make changes and help local non-profit organisations.

    This year we decided it’s great time to invite other IT companies to join the Cause! Each company will be given the option to send their team to our offices in Novi Sad or stay in their company and work on their project/projects.

    Whether you are an individual or an IT company from Novi Sad, we invite you to join us by FILLING OUT THE FORM → ON THIS LINK.

    How long Will This Phase Last?

    We’ve got some great news! The open call for developers has already started! You can sign up until September, the 10th. But, why would you wait so long? The sooner you fill out the form, the sooner we will be able to form your team. ;-)

    Which Technologies Will You Use at the Hackathon?

    Depending on the project requirements, we will suggest the best technologies for each project together with our colleagues. If you, as a company, want to create a team that will work on creating a software solution, we would love you to join us in a brainstorming session where we could create a tailor-made approach that matches the needs of the idea initiators.

    What Should You Know About the Hackathon?

    Before the final event, we will host a Meetup with all the participants at our headquarters in Novi Sad. During this meetup, all team members will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas with designers and idea initiators. The goal is to clarify any doubts about the requirements and delegate tasks before you start to code.

    The Hackathon will start on October, the 4th at 6 pm and last for 48 hours straight. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? :-)

    Once again, we invite you to join us, meet like-minded people, learn something new and, most importantly, make changes.
