We start our season 2014/2015 together with Tartu Enterpreneurship Week with a topic exploring our Tartu based startups building professional (developer) tools. Main focus is - where do they come from, why are they doing what they are doing?
We'll meet up on 6th of October at 18:30 at Ülikooli Kohvik, Tartu. The event will feature 4 startups (see below) and two of them are quite new to the public - Geenhouse CI and Messente. So make sure you come by and be one of the first ones to know about them.
It is an important question where do the ideas and the necessities come from to create something that helps you for example to deploy faster on enterprise servers (ZeroTurnaround) or to deal in a hassle-free manner with continuous integration for mobile apps (Greenhouse CI - Mobi Lab).
Like always, the event is in English and free to attend (registrations is mandatory, though). First we'll hear about the roots and beginnings of these startups and have a small discussion where to look for important enough ideas to create something what matters. After that networking accompanied with beers is commencing :)
