Banat IT Summer Barbeque has been the first event of this kind to bring together IT passionates of Timisoara and nearby in an informal gathering for networking & leisure reasons. It has also been a proper occasion to officially launch Banat IT as a community aggregator of talents and values in the tech ecosystem of Banat.
Banat IT X-mas Party follows the same format as the former mentioned event, with the intention of nurturing and further promoting what the Banat IT community has been achieved in the past two undoubtedly fruitful seasons.
Most IT companies organize in mid December their private X-mas parties where their employees have fun celebrating the best team moments of the past year and build the hope for the year to come.
We propose to go beyond the corporate boundaries and accept that good things happen in the IT sector in Timisoara and its Banat IT community. We want to acknowledge and build upon the natural relationships that exist between IT people at personal level and create community awareness in the Banat space. Such informal gatherings provide bonding and help achieve connectivity. These are the premises for a strong community platform to create new opportunities and initiatives in Banat. Read more

Timisoara Agile Software Meetup Group, Syneto and Timisoara Startup Hub are organizing again this Saturday, November 15th, the Timisoara implementation of the biggest collaborative software development event in the World. At its fourth edition, aims to unite more than 5000 programmers all over the World. Each city and local community collaborates with a small group totaling more than 200 individual events developing into a worldwide code retreat network.
For those that missed the previous Timisoara editions, a code retreat is a full day event that aims to offer a safe haven for programming experiments. For a whole day, programmers gather to program, experiment, learn, and have fun. It is the ideal place for programmers to do the things they can not do at work. To try out crazy ideas, to improve themselves by interacting with others, to write code using test driven development, pair programming, and other agile practices.
Banat region is well recognized as important region for agriculture and a source of quality food both in Serbia and Romania.
Our friends from Novi-Sad developed FRACTALS, a project to distribute a total grant support of 5,52 MEUR to 50‐60 SMEs and Web entrepreneurs from all over Europe in order to “inject” Future Internet based apps in the Agricultural Sector.
The FRACTALS Open Call will be launched pretty soon, at the end of November 2014, while the Call will remain open until the 28th of February 2015.
The support through FRACTALS project is going to be multi‐dimensional in the sense that it aims to span beyond grant assistance to also include:
- the technical capacity building of ICT SMEs and Web entrepreneurs with respect to developing applications based on the Future Internet Infrastructure
- the testing and validation of applications in an open innovation context (by involving end‐users in the testing/validation assignment through a Living Labs environment established by BioSense Center in the region of Vojvodina)
- clustering and mentoring services related to entrepreneurship and venture capital finance. Read more
