The SmartNinja team attended the WeAreDevelopers conference in Vienna where we got to spend 3 productive, fun and educational days together. Since members of our team come from different backgrounds and do not share specific interests, we collectively managed to listen to a variety of different talks on tech, business, HR and other areas. Here you can read the key takeaways that stayed with us after the WeAre Developers conference.
