Excellence may sound like a buzzword, but for us, it expresses our constant appetite for innovation and technical proficiency. We consider it to be an essential ingredient of a good working environment, that’s why it’s one of the values that define the Qubiz Culture (aka Qubizm).

To stay true to this value, we set up an internal system that helps colleagues achieve their full potential. We constantly support our team by investing in hard and soft skills training sessions, materials, and periodic performance reviews. We compiled a list of the training sessions and conferences that our colleagues found the most useful this year. What other conferences would you recommend? Let us know in the comments section!

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.

One of the proofs for IoT’s potential is its impressive growth. According to a Cisco report, the number of devices grew by more than two times during 2012-2016, going from 8.7 billion devices to 22.9 billion devices. And it doesn’t stop here.

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.

For the last couple of years, Big Data has constantly been on the most significant technologies list. And it’s pretty important to understand why.
