We’re already half through our Android workshop as a part of the “FII Practic!” project, which we announced at the beginning of February. Here is an insight on how the droids are doing. First of all, we were absolutely stunned by the number of students that registered for our course: almost 180 enthusiastic people, and we had the difficult task of selecting just 28 of them. The selection was made based on technical questions regarding previous experiences with Java, OOP, and Android. After a few hours spent reading and analyzing some very good answers, we got our top 28 entries and we were all set to continue with the workshop. […]

24 hours may seem like a short time, but in the thrill of a hackathon, you may be amazed of what you can accomplish. At the beginning of September we challenged our colleagues from the technology teams to look towards the future of technology and build awesome future-inspired applications. To our delight, quite a few of them said yes. And here we are, September 3rd, 10 o’clock, spreading participant kits to the guys who were coming in large groups, impatient to get things started. Two hours later, we “let the games begin“ and everyone hurried to gather his team and write down their projects strategy. But where there is a […]
On May 25th a team of brave testers from eMAG Warsaw Hub participated in an event called “Testing Cup 2016”.

Since knowledge is power, our wish is to stay connected to everything new out there related to the web development field. Ok, but how do we do it? One of the solutions we’ve got up our sleeve is to attend conferences dedicated to hot topics of interest for us.
We already did that when we attended Smartweb, a conference for developers and web designers. Between the 21st and the 22nd of September 2015, the UI Core Team from eMAG attended the Smartweb 2015 Conference.
In this article I’ll walk you through some of the technologies and fun we had during the 2nd edition of eMAG Hackathon on June 13, 2015. I’d like to share our journey with you, starting with Symfony, moving on to the burger van, writing some APIs with the FOSRestBundle, taking a hell of a ride with the Oculus Rift simulator and ending with the Android SDK deep into the night (true last man standing experience). Our team (Black Team from the eMAG Marketplace application), had a very practical idea, based on a real need we had during the Scrum plannings: a mobile application to handle the meetings and estimations, while keeping record […]

Starting with 11:00 AM, the teams were there to check in and the terraces of the building began to swarm with groups who were discussing the projects that they would develop. The hallways of an entire floor turned into nine-bot tracks, and it seemed like we could only walk on the two-wheeled […]
