As Atolye15, we always wanted to host huge tech conferences to bring the whole community together for exchanging ideas and strengthening our ties. And WTK’14 was the first one of these. While organizing this type of community event, our primary goal is to give back to the ecosystem that greatly contributed to where we are today. And the way we give back is by sharing our years’ worth of technical knowledge and industry experiences.
With that in mind, our first WTK consisted of 6 different sessions where 12 speakers shared their knowledge on a wide range of topics related to the most popular web and mobile technologies. It became an educational and inspirational platform for people to share what they know to watch others grow. But with more than 250 attendees, the event quickly turned into a community meetup where like-minded people with similar interests came together to discuss and expand their networks with the bright minds and exceptional talents of the ecosystem.
In 2018, we held our 4th conference on web and mobile technologies in Izmir with more than a thousand attendees. And we loved sharing this massive platform with 5 impressive speakers who embrace the giveback culture we all live by as a team. So, it was an honor for us to share what we know and have meaningful discussions on topics relating to PHP, NodeJS, Python, Ruby, React, Angular, Sketch, Figma, and many more in front of the enthusiasts of the community.
As Atolye15, we love organizing events to bring the whole ecosystem together and solidify our bonds. And one of our favorite ways to do that is through our technical conferences, where we share our knowledge and industry experience and encourage others to do the same. Because we can only rise by lifting others.
As the Atolye15 team, we are incredibly committed to our community. So, we take it upon ourselves to give back to the ecosystem we all come from. And the way we give back is through sharing our years’ worth of accumulated technical knowledge and industry experience using platforms such as WTK’15.
In order to give the young and talented members of our community a chance to improve themselves and become successful future developers, designers, and project managers, we decided to organize Intern Bootcamps. With these events, our objective is not to find an intern to run the errands of the office, bring us coffee, or make some photocopies. Our primary purpose is to discover brilliant minds willing to take the wheel by directly getting involved in our projects rather than just observing. At these events, we’re constantly on the lookout for curious and highly-skilled individuals who have the potential to turn their internship into a long-term relationship with us as teammates.
