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.
Apart from the tech conferences of previous years, this time, we organized even more exclusive networking sessions to give everyone in our ecosystem a better opportunity to meet like-minded people with similar interests and skills. To do that, we designed badges and flags specific to each area of interest to create safe spaces where people could easily come together and have discussions about their fields, learn from each other, and get the chance to expand and strengthen their networks.
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.
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 the intention of hosting a huge event based on the topic of entrepreneurship to spark inspiration in the brilliant minds of our community, we organized IzmirUp together with the Turkish Entrepreneurship Foundation, a.k.a GIRVAK. With this exciting and insightful community event, our primary purpose was to encourage our ecosystem’s young and unique talents to learn more about starting a new business and cultivating their entrepreneurial skills.
