Prolog

IT is always about communities. Such was my thinking in the far year of 2011 when I created the first Moldovan IT community on Facebook — DeveloperMD. After a half-year of online activity we decided that we have to get together offline. Said and done: in September 2011 we had the first DeveloperMD Community Offline with approximately 40 participants. One week later me and my partner created a software development company — FusionWorks — this was inspired by the outcome of the first event. Already in November, now having FusionWorks as the main partner, we’ve organized the 2nd edition. At some point, due to the growing size of the event, we realized that it should be done once a year and eventually we had 11 editions so far. In 2018 the big change took place — event was extended to two days, the name was changed to Moldova Developer Conference and another, much bigger venue, was selected. This led to the increase of number of participants — 350 — which makes MDC the biggest IT conference for developers in the country. This year #MDC19 is planned for November 2–3 and we expect around 450 awesome people to attend. So let me tell you more about what is going to happen in 2019.

Why #MDC19 is cool

Well, let’s count:

  1. It’s the biggest IT event for developers in the country.

Still not sure? Just watch this video from 2018. Like it? Then read more below :)

How to get onboard

Simple!

  1. Book the flight and accommodation (if you are not living here).

Why doing this?

Sometimes people ask: “Why are you doing this?”. The answer simple — we do it because we can. And because we love it! Having hundreds of bright eyes before you is the pleasure that can’t be denied. So we started in 2011 and are not going to stop.

Ok, let’s now learn more about the host country — Moldova — this small IT valley.

Top 3 facts about Moldova

  1. Moldova is not Maldives. Often mail delivery companies send parcels to the wrong country. Moldova has around 3.5 millions inhabitants and used to be USSR country until 1991. Official language is Romanian/Moldovan (the same language but is called differently in official documents). Also people understand and speak Russian here. Most of IT geeks speak English fluently, taxi drivers — not.

See you in the most promising IT country in Europe!
