Organizing the largest conferences and meetups for developers in Russia has been at the heart of our company for many years. Our main goal is the development of Russian IT engineers’ community. We achieve it by creating specialized venues to make experience exchange and networking for advanced developers more accessible and fruitful.
Therefore, only technical talks are included in our program which is formed in such a way as to gather and unite enthusiastic developers who are willing to share their experience and discuss solutions of challenging problems and projects.Read more at jugru.org
