This November the Outsource People conference will celebrate its 5th anniversary in Kiev. Attending the event isn’t something new to us, yet it’s the first time we are among core sponsors and conference partners. DDI Development aids the conference founders with arrangements, sponsoring, and invitations. If the flight to Kiev, Ukraine isn’t on your schedule yet, it’s time to reconsider plans and grab some tickets.
What’s that about?
Outsource people is the major IT event for the Ukrainian software development market. It challenges the IT sector maturity and remains the leading platform to share experiences not only for Ukrainian companies but also for the entire Eastern Europe market. Unlike most IT conferences, we discuss here how to deliver exceptional engineering services to our partners.
Why is that important?
If you missed something in the IT world, Ukraine leads the race of being the most attractive outsourcing destination in Eastern Europe. It’s not a disparate group of companies striving to enter global markets. Ukrainian IT today is a broad community which has managed to establish a working ecosystem. And we successfully compete with other world IT hubs:
- Ukraine has a deep talent pool. Our tech-intensive background and the educational base set a high competitive environment for technicians.
- Companies here are really picky in terms of their developers and new-hires. So the general programming quality is high.
- As offshore partners working with clients from other parts of the world, we know how much the project management culture is important.
- We set available prices. A budget is never something put in the end of the list.
So it must be for locals only, right?
Not quite so. Besides being the major event for locals, Outsource People focuses on networking and connecting IT businesses here with European and American entrepreneurs. The conference welcomes startupers, advisors, investors, and generally influencers to join in and set mutually trusted partnerships.
And you don’t necessarily need to know Ukrainian or Russian to keep up.
Who’s in and what are you talking about this time?
The leading Ukrainian software companies have confirmed their participation, and speakers are coming both from Eastern Europe and our targeted Western markets.
Here are the fields that are going to be covered:
- Business strategy
- Sales and marketing
- Operational development
- Product development and management
Can I become a speaker?
Sure. The conference is going to happen in 4-5 of November, so you have time to apply and share your ideas in the announced fields.
Don’t hesitate. If you’re looking for though leadership or just proficient business partners, Outsource People welcomes you.
