All Case Studies Design Development Interviews Our Way Project Management
When you’re thinking about the most successful startup hubs in Europe, the first cities that come to your mind are probably London or Berlin. The tech scene in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) isn’t far behind, though. Warsaw, Budapest, Tallinn and Prague – to name a few – are home for many renowned companies that have made it to the international market. Prezi, a popular presentation software that allows users to present their ideas on a zoomable virtual canvas, is a case in point. Very few people know, however, that it was founded in Budapest. Just like all the promising startups we list below. All of them have the capability and resources to expand dynamically, so chances are they will grow successfully on the global market.

Just like last year, we asked our designers to share their vision of the upcoming UX trends for 2017, and they have some interesting insights. Every response, besides other things, mentioned two trends: new ways of interacting with users – either through AR, VR or voice UI, and improvements to more standard technologies, such as better UI animations or microinteractions. We are looking forward to seeing these predictions come true.

After studying how successful people and other designers spend their time and after looking at their schedules hour by hour, I established that it might not be enough to create a bulletproof plan for achieving my deeply desired goals.

Many startups out there are built on the basis of fantastic ideas that could change the world or bring new value to the market, yet many of them fail. At Netguru, we’re involved in about 160 projects a year. We’ve been through the development journey of many startups and new projects within established businesses and we’ve witnessed stories we think are worth sharing.

In the previous parts of the Phoenix series, I wrote about Phoenix framework models and migrations, in particular about how they compare to models and migrations in Rails and also about the first steps in Phoenix. In today’s blog post, I would like to tell you a little bit about the whole lifecycle of a request: from the moment it’s sent by a web browser to receiving a response from the same client.
