It’s always a good time to pick up a book, but August is a particularly great month for reading. During a vacation you have all sorts of downtime: traveling, working on your tan on the beach, staying in line in front of a museum, etc. Having something to read makes the time fly.

So we gathered a bunch of books that we, the Qubiz Team, recommend. We kept in mind that during summer you might prefer lighter subjects, so we skipped the Microsoft Certification Exam guidebooks! Without further ado, let’s see the titles:

Getting new clients is one of the most difficult tasks for any company. Still, new clients are requisite for growth. To this end, business development, along with marketing and advertising, play a crucial role.

However, even if the internet and mobile devices have brought about new channels, people are exposed to hundreds of ads per day. That makes it increasingly harder to stand out in a crowded market, both for business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) companies.

While creating the job description for a .NET developer, we made a list of what we’re looking for in a candidate. In the process, a question crossed our minds. Technical expertise aside, what is it that makes a good developer?

I have a question for you: will you be happy doing what you do in the present 10 years from now? Or on the contrary, quite likely you’ll realize that you ended up on the wrong side of the IT spectrum? If that happens, let’s hope it won’t be too late…

It happens all too often that ads for testing jobs attract candidates who think of QA as a jumping board for a future career in development. With this plan in mind, they’ll accept testing as a temporary job, while really aiming for a developer position.

What was once considered science fiction is now becoming reality as developers have the resources and the tools to build artificial intelligence programs. Increased computing power in hardware, massive amounts of data and the wide availability of dedicated frameworks – all those are propelling the development of machine learning.

Still, artificial intelligence and machine learning are both a challenge and an opportunity for business and developers alike. While they can secure a competitive advantage for companies, developing such applications is largely uncharted territory.

As we constantly invest in research, we’ve started experimenting with these technologies ourselves. Here’s what we learned from it.

The obstacles and rewards of changing your role in a software company

Nowadays professionals tend to change jobs every 3 to 5 years. You can observe this tendency especially in dynamic industries such as IT&C. At Qubiz, we believe there are better ways to build your career. Why leave your comrades when you can find new opportunities within the same company?

Most of our colleagues choose this path. In some cases they switch projects or learn a new technology, and in other instances they take up new roles and responsibilities. I asked Răzvan – who arguably has the most interesting career path inside the company – to tell us his story.

Published on June 6, 2017
- in Blog, Opinion

It’s no longer news: companies that don’t embrace digital have a small chance of staying in business 2-3 years from now. So, what’s the best option for developing the necessary software solutions: setting up in-house or outsourcing to software development companies?

While there are benefits to keeping software development in-house, there are also significant challenges, especially at project outset. Outsourcing teams bypass many of those, making it easier to start the actual development.

Here is a list of aspects to consider.
