Developer Meetup: Why we do it and videos from recent meetups

We have been working hard to provide the local development community with something valuable. Earlier this year, we officially launched our Developer Meetup series, where we share the latest knowledge and trends in the tech industry, with a particular focus on mobile and web apps as well as backend solutions – STRV's core services.

Developer Meetup: Backend Workshop

So far, we have organized two events. The first one was focused on leveraging BAAS (backend as a service) tools like Firebase with a little bit of Node.js script for support. We invited a lot of iOS and Android developers. The goal was to help them to become full-stack developers capable of developing an entire app by themselves without the need of a backend engineer.

Developer Meetup: Advanced Swift Workshop

The other event we organized was focused on the advanced use of Swift as well as some techniques that were quite hidden, like scripting in Swift. At STRV, we try to adopt the latest technology as fast as we can, which was one of the reasons why we started using Swift pretty much as soon as it was publish last year.
