“We have a really good idea about developing a new web product.” Usually, this is what we actually think, but in the sentence there is a huge mistake: “a really good idea”. No. It’s not necessarily a good idea! I read countless forums, articles, stories about failure in startups. Too many! But the most […]
Shortcut Event PICS Tweets Blog posts TDD Quotes Here we are, our event recently ended, and I’m here to draw some conclusions. I have to say, we are extremely pleased with the result! It took a considerable time to organise everything, but it was totally worth it! We obviously had sponsors: thanks to Mayflower for […]
My first days at Uxebu were hilarious… yes, hilarious for everyone but me: I didn’t get half of their laughs and furrowed eyebrows. Sometimes they were just looking at me astonished and baffled. Now, in retrospect, I can understand why. I am a stranger in a foreign country, and, although Italy isn’t so far away […]
We’re making good progress in the organization of our event: according to our official website and to the Facebook event we should already have 35 participants. Right now, our main issue is related to the gadgets: which ones should we choose? And, most importantly, how many?
Before joining Uxebu, I was not familiar with the startup environment. For me startups were just new and small businesses with innovative ideas. Nothing too exciting. I began to realize that I had to deal with something new and unknown since the first Skype interview: it was scheduled at 3 p.m., and from 2 p.m. […]
I love to organize events! I organized pretty big parties before coming here, and I loved to plan graduation parties for my friends (in the North-East of Italy graduation parties are held in a very folkloric way, not common at all… I’ve never seen anything like those parties and behaviors in the rest of the […]
We are planning a JS CodeRetreat for February 8th (ah, btw, if interested, here’s the link to the website: jscoderetreat.com), and I, of course, wanted to lend a hand in the organization. The question was: how could I help if I didn’t understand at all what it was about? For this reason, some days ago […]
Hello! I’m Irene, the marketing intern in uxebu. Keyword: marketing Yes, because uxebu is a very well known German startup which basically operates in the high quality IT consulting field. And I’m the marketing intern. Doesn’t sound strange until now, right? Well, let me tell you all something more about my experience. I graduated in […]
Uxebu is spreading its knowledge, get some of it – for 699€ if you are an early bird (999€ later)!
After the MWC in Barcelona I moved my working place to Valencia for a week, a little further south. That is already a while ago, but still I wanted to write a little bit about all the experiences. Not last because I very much want to thank all the people who I have met, who […]
At Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, @uxebu attended the WAC event to catch up with the future of WAC. WAC, short for Wholesale Applications Community, is a group of global mobile operators. They provide, among other things, a spec for their correspondent web application runtime “WAC”. Recently the new WAC 2.0 Spec got out […]
Yesterday HP announced the new WebOS devices in San Francisco. Nikolai and Stephan had been there (and they are still there). MWC starts on Monday. Six out of seven of the uxebus will be there in Barcelona, all week, one apartment, sea view and fun. After JSConf in Portland (at least) three of us are […]
First and foremost big thanks to the organizers and sponsors of this awesome BarCamp. It almost seems as if BarCamps have already passed their tipping point, but still every time I discover new and interesting things, I meet people who attend for the first time and are excited about it, which makes it really awesome […]
During a very intense week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and a lot of very interesting meetings, discussions and talks, one incident surprisingly stuck out. At one of the evening events, I randomly met the folks behind http://www.yourappshop.com, a platform which allows you to distribute iPhone applications through other means than the official […]
