Front.radar and py_tej - events for the frontend and backend communities
Our software house is filled with people that treat their work more than a means to get a paycheck - we really love what we do and are always eager to learn more things and get to know likeminded people. That’s why we organize our events - to help others learn something new (as well as learn something new ourselves) and gather the community in one place.
In August we decided to start the school year a bit early and brought front.radar and py_tej. We’re happy to say that both gathered more than a hundred people EACH! We couldn’t be happier - to be honest we were a bit scared that some of you may prefer spending time outside to broadening your knowledge. However, as usual, you didn’t disappoint and proved us wrong! :) This month we learned about Xonsh, Kubernetes, web scraping with Chrome Headless, React refactoring and forms, and TypeScript. Plenty of stuff for one month! Of course, after the presentations, we were able to meet you and chat - that’s what such events should be all about!
Project Management means constant self-development

Four-legged visitors more than welcome in our office
As you saw on our Insta Stories, we started the week with a shedload of cakes.🍰 They are not, however, the sweetest thing in the office - this title is only for Czacza, a dachshund-like pup🐶 od our PHP Developer Andrzej. Czacza, similar to her master, is quite chill - as you can see, they like to spend the day by strolling around the office (as all friends do). But both of them also have duties when in the office - dor Andrzej it’s programming, for Czacza standing guard when he’s playing foosball. 😉 #adoptdontshop #dogs #officedog #dog #dogsofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #officelife #fun #lovemyjob #webdevelopment #softwarehouse #happy #webdeveloper #office #officelife #happy #webdev #programming #programmer #developer #websitedesign #programmerslife #programmerslife #coding #poznan#poland #merixstudio #ITindustry
As you know, there are certain aspects of life is something we’re very fond of in our software house. Among them are, for instance, pizza and dogs. ;) Luckily, in August we were able to meet yet another Merixstudio pooch! Czacza, a dachshund-like pup of our PHP Developer Andrzej, definitely took some traits from her master - she’s friendly, chill, and likes to spend the day by strolling around the office. However, she more than deserves a peaceful life since she was found on the street and then adopted by Andrzej’s family. That’s what we like - adopt don’t shop, people!
Learning during the summer
You thought that two events would be enough for us when it comes to sharing our knowledge? No way, Jose! Magda and Karol are working hard every day to maintain a high level of expertise on our blog. Among the articles they recommend is, for instance, the piece where our PHP Developer Tomek explains why PHP Developers should learn Python. As you probably suspect, his advice is to of course broaden your knowledge (which seems to bea theme of this summary), but what are his arguments for it? Check out his article and find out!
New office means new people!
As you know, we acquired new office space this summer and we’re working tirelessly on making it reflect who we are as people and what values guide our company. And let me tell you, plenty of exciting projects are happening behind the scenes! Among the things we’ve already shown you are drawings that Paweł, a close friend of our software house, created in our UX workshop room and in other spaces of Merixstudio's headquarters. If you visited us, either for a recruitment interview or informal meeting, you know what I’m talking about! Check out our job offers or simply write to Natalia or Kasia, to schedule a meeting and #MeetMerix!
