Daxx’s sales team attended London’s very first Technology Week, the week-long set of events that showcased “London’s role as the digital capital of Europe”, according to Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
Out of the numerous events that comprised London Technology Week, Daxx team chose to attend several forums and shows, most relevant to the IT industry.
Those were Big Data Debate (a meetup group for professionals working in big data); Cloud World Forum (EMEA’s leading Cloud event with over 8,000 attendees from cloud computing companies); Internet World UK (event for IT and digital marketing professionals) as well as Big Data Congress, Apps World, and Big Data Show.
Every third company at Cloud Forum stated they have a shortage of Python and Java developers,” says Daxx Business Development Professional Alyona Pershykova. “There is also an increased demand for and short supply of Magento developers, which is understandable, the UK being a global e-commerce leader. All in all, we can say that Python and Java developers, as well as PHP, Front-End, Android and iOS developers are the most sought after programmers in London. With that shortage of talent, a dedicated offshore team can be a good solution for London-based businesses.
Internet World 2014 was the most impressive event Daxx team attended within the Technology Week. The flagship event of the Week, it was organized to empower IT and digital marketing professionals with innovative strategies for succeeding on the Web. The event included a tech startup showcase, trainings and workshops, business matchmaking, and dedicated seminar theaters. With thousands of attendees, Internet World became a truly memorable show and a source of valuable information.
Organized by UBM Live and supported by London & Partners, the official promotional organization of the Mayor, London Technology Week is meant to reaffirm London’s position as the leading technology city. With an estimated of over 40,000 attendees, London Technology Week was a sure success. Among the exhibitors, participants, and attendees were companies from the US, Denmark, Sweden, China, Hong-Kong and other countries all over the world. Over 200 independently run shows comprised London Technology Week, making it one of the biggest technology-related events of the year.
