For the second time, Bitcom took part in the large-scale Startup Day event - THE MOST STARTUP-MINDED BUSINESS FESTIVAL, which is held in a hybrid format - online and offline (Estonia, Tartu). The aim of the event is to connect like-minded people and celebrate entrepreneurship in the smart city of Tartu. Previous time we were delighted with so many participants in the event! Therefore, without thinking for a long time, we bought a ticket for the next event. Mostly, the participants are companies from Estonia. These are visitors, startups, investors, and executives. And the very fact that Estonia has such a large number of interesting and progressive startups also delighted us. The conference aims to unite companies with common goals.

While everyone sums up the year and prepares for the New Year and Christmas holidays, we decided to share the story of our workation on Cyprus. Workation or a combination of work and vacation as a format is becoming increasingly popular due to the possibility of remote work. And for our team, workation has become a new experience. And as feedbacks say - a format that we liked and wanted to repeat.

In recent years the farming industry has worked hard to ensure animal health and welfare, improve consumer trust, and reduce antimicrobial use, all while driving productivity. According to modern world tendencies, ensuring animals’ safety becomes a priority. Nowadays the outcome we get from animals is not the main thing that counts - people learned that we need to take proper care of domesticated creatures’ health and help them live comfortably. That also helps to increase productivity while decreasing costs and land outgoings.

If you have a project where you want to integrate a chat, then, Twilio is a great tool to choose. For developers, creating a chat from scratch for the first time can become a pain. Creating only an API for the chat on your own will be a very complex task. There is a lot of stuff in chat functionality you will have to take care of: endpoints for sending a message, creating chat channels for two people, or group channels, loading messages (with pagination), API for counting unread messages, marking message as “read”, block/unblock users and so on. Also you may want to be able to send media files in your chat, and you will have to build an API for that too.

TDD or Test-Driven Development is a development approach, when you write and run tests on small development integrations. Each iteration aims to develop code that will pass these tests. By following this, you can get a very high level of quality of your code, which is tested automatically. TDD also reduces the likelihood of errors in your tests, which can otherwise be difficult to track down.

Digital product companies need talented developers to create unique customer experiences that overcome the competition. But it is quite difficult, expensive, and time-consuming to find and hire highly qualified developers. Before we start looking for a new team member, we need to consider what our goals are, what we expect from developers, what tools are going to be used for growth and what we want to achieve as an outcome. The market has a wide range of contractors of various rates and expertise in the field of IT services: from beginner freelancers to large IT outsourcing companies with an excellent track record.
