Since kicking off our Community Empowerment programme in 2010, one of the main goals of our team has been to add value to the technology and business community in Romania. And now we’re launching yet another initiative within Community Empowerement – QUALITALKS, a series of tech talks dedicated to the Romanian tech community and starring top tech professionals we are currently working with.
QUALITALKS will offer the perfect opportunity for Romanian tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and decision makers to be connecting with international experts behind the latest technology trends -experts that are friends and also business partners of the QUALITANCE team.
QUALITALKS kick off took place on Monday, the 9th of June, with a very special guest: Maximiliano Firtman, Web & Mobile Developer, consultant, author and specialist, who invited us to discuss about Google Glass and Other Wearable Devices. Not only he cleared out a few myths about Google Glass but he also offered us the opportunity to test the device. While introducing Google Glass, Max needed to clear up a few important things. First of all, Google Glass should not be seen as an evolution of Smartphones, as they are rather independent devices. Second, the handling and usage of the wearable devices ask for a different approach when it comes to developing apps and programs – this is where it gets even more interesting for us.
Last, but not least, Google Glass are still at a starting point which means there is still a lot of progress to make and also a great opportunity for the IT developers. We were very pleased with the outcome of our first QUALITALKS and are already looking forward to the next episode. Hope to see you there! Until then, take a sneak peak at the photos we took during the first talk.
