IT Month – An Annual Event
ITkonekt is a growing regional IT community. Once a year, we gather the entire IT scene in one place during the ITkonekt event. This event consists of a number of segments happening at the same time: IT Job Fair, IT Conference, Gaming Segment, IT Stories, together with the various other workshops and secondary events.
We collaborate with over 150 IT companies, more than 12,000 IT experts, and over 150 foreign and local lecturers who’ve been speaking at our conferences, as well as with the numerous IT organizations and the media.
Over the years, ITkonekt grew into a powerful platform that gathers numerous IT experts, companies, organizations and media. IT companies are constantly seeking help for the IT industry problem resolving and they also contact us when they need assistance in telling their stories as well as making an appearance on the market. We provide help with employment, marketing, event organization, online appearance and various other issues.
Our meet-ups have started one completely different concept – instead of organizing them somewhere outside of the company’s workspace, we started organizing them inside of the company’s workspace itself. This way, we are opening the doors of IT companies and allowing the IT experts to meet them face to face, right there on the spot…
Did you know that some IT guys live incredible lives? Did you know that some of them have their own breweries, bands, that they make and wear amazing costumes and that some female programmers even win the gold medals in kick-box? This year, for the first time, we have started this project in order to share these inspiring IT stories. Not many people know that many IT experts are not only successful in what they do, but they are also great at many other aspects of their lives and they have some very creative and interesting hobbies. At our first conference: IT Stories at ITkonekt 2018, we presented only a few of the dazzling stories.
Blog – IT Industry Knowledge Base
ITkonekt started a blog that serves as a unique base of knowledge related to the IT industry. Many experienced IT experts write for our blog and they write about contemporary topics that they often deal with on a daily basis. In one place, you can find carefully gathered valuable knowledge and experience of numerous IT experts of the industry. The goal here is to have this base grow constantly and thus use this as a way to spread and exchange experiences in the IT community.
Women Empowerment in IT
Even though many still see programming as a ‘man’s craft’, there is a significant number of women who are quite successful in this profession. Women can be great IT experts too and that’s why we want to help and point as many women as we can towards a career in IT. Considering that this industry offers more and more jobs, if more women were to choose IT as their career, the unemployment rate in our country would decrease.
IT Career Development Center
ITkonekt also functions as a Career Development Center for the students of educational IT institutions. We are the official Career Development Center of the Belgrade Institute of Technology BIT and we also collaborate with other educational IT institutions that work towards educating quality IT professionals. We are helping these new and talented IT professionals to find the right job opportunities in our partner IT companies.
