With the holiday season in full swing, we would like to take a moment and give thanks to every individual who gave contribution to the results we achieved in the year 2022! Together, we made sure the ICodeFactory story keeps on growing!
When we take a step back and look at the year behind us, we would not change a thing! Let's have a look at the key points regarding our work in 2022.
Some things at ICodeFactory have become a tradition: for the 13th time, we have renewed our Gold Microsoft Partnership and we are proud to say that it is a reflection of the successful and qualitative work we nurture. Our accomplishments come from hard work, dedication and persistence we follow. We are proud of all the successful projects we are working on, in more than 10 different industries and domains. Apart from that, we continued with the good practice of providing IT trainings to companies worldwide. In this experience, we use an individual, tailored approach to clients in order to get the best results.
We make sure that our team’s domain expertise keeps evolving. In this regard, we were happy to be a part of the Light + Building Autumn Edition 2022 in Frankfurt. Our software engineers presented an innovative solution in the light industry, designed together with our partners. For us, it is always a pleasure to be a part of such important international events and to present the projects that we are working on.
Naturally, every business area has its challenges. Technologies are changing and evolving fast and the need to keep up the pace has never been more essential. This is where ICodeFactory has recognized the value of upskilling, as a key factor in overcoming the growing challenges of the widening skills gap. We value upskilling practices in our own team and we are looking to bring it closer to others through our dedicated work in the future!
Furthermore, this year we decided to put a personal touch on our services by sharing more about our work methods and the story behind the ICodeFactory logo. Through this story, we wanted to bring closer the meaning and values of our company to the people who are following us and to those who are interested in finding out more about what it is like to work with us!
We ended the year in great spirits, by celebrating our company’s 17th birthday together as a team. Our drive for new ideas, as well as our learning and knowledge-sharing habits throughout the years have led us to this day and we believe it will keep on guiding us through many more. Therefore, one of our resolutions will be to continue with these habits in the successful years to come!
What are your New Year's goals?
May the New Year bring you happiness, peace and prosperity. Our ICodeFactory team wishes you a joyful 2023 and thank You for being with us!
This year, we are celebrating our 17th birthday! We are growing and learning each day, but throughout the process, some things have followed us from the beginning – like the philosophy that we stand for, and the values that we nurture as a team.
The cooperation with our clients and partners can be described through our credo: Implement Your Vision! Why did we choose this particular statement, and what makes it so fitting and in line with the ICodeFactory values?
Firstly, cooperating with ICodeFactory means more than instructing software engineers and waiting for the end results. Our method of work involves actively taking part in the processes required to get the best result possible. We always have one goal in mind – to create the best solution that suits the specific client’s needs. Every organization is different, and we are very much aware of that – there is no such thing as one perfect approach for everyone!
The team of skilled software engineers at ICodeFactory is what makes us the company that we are today. But there is another part of our success – we are also the proud partners of three renowned faculties in Novi Sad: Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Sciences and Faculty of Technical Sciences. These partnerships have produced many positive results supporting our common goal of providing learning and development opportunities for students and our employees. It also gives us the unique chance to cooperate with amazing smart people, who are experts in a variety of scientific fields. This is an invaluable asset and addition to our company's know-how!
Since we have experience in more than ten industries, with many projects under our belt, we gladly use our domain knowledge and help our clients build up from any stage of an idea. Sometimes it helps to get the opinion of experts to find the best path. So don't worry if you do not have a clear-cut plan of action – we can start from scratch! We have done that many times and have created amazing results.
We are happy to say that we have helped many organizations on their road to development. So far, we have cooperated with companies of a variety of sizes and backgrounds, from a number of startups to well-known international enterprises. While we are experts in developing enterprise software solutions, we have also successfully cooperated with a number of growing teams, who have continued their path of advancements since. Many of them evolved into successful companies with high-quality products.
In these past 17 years, we have found to be a perfect fit with those who have ambition to launch their new ideas just as much as those who want to take their existing ones to the next level. If you are looking for an IT partner, contact us and let’s find out how we can Implement Your Vision!

There is a common misconception that internships are a one-way street, where it is implied for interns to act as the right hand of their mentors and do as told, rather than a two-way path from which both interns and mentors can learn. In this article, we will overcome that myth by sharing yet another positive experience with summer internships at ICodeFactory.
Why an internship?
Firstly, an internship is a great way for students to network inside the business world and pave the route to their first job in a professional career. It represents a key to many doors young enthusiasts can open and further hone their technical, but more importantly, soft skills. It has never been more important to learn through practice. Why? Following worldwide project cancellations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, internship numbers have also, naturally, decreased. Regardless, the good news is: the value of learning through professional experience is still relevant into the 2022, which gives us an insight into the motivational factors of students. Last but not least, internships give students something valuable outside their summer vacation.
What is the flip side?
When the other side of the coin is turned, the question is - what is the value of internships to employers? The answer is straightforward – plenty. As was already noted, internships at ICodeFactory serve as a learning opportunity for both students and our team. Through internships, we put our values which include knowledge transfer, encouragement of young people as well as the desire to acquire new experiences into practice. We feel that any fresh idea is a place where we, as experts can grow and move forward. Therefore we provide our interns the freedom and encouragement to actively share their ideas and suggestions at every stage of the process.
A win-win situation
Every year, we offer a variety of internships in the field of Software Development, Business Development as well as Human Resources. During the 2022 ICodeFactory Summer Internship program, our interns have gotten the chance to experience real-working situations involving their future career paths and interests. Apart from the professional skills they were able to acquire, putting the theory from books into practical tasks, they also developed a sense of teamwork and collaboration.
Some of them shared their thoughts on the experience:
„The whole internship was a very useful and important experience for me. We had the opportunity to see what a working day, in reality, means, which will definitely contribute to my problem-solving skills in the future.“
„I enjoyed the fact that I could expand my knowledge on the current trends in technology. We were provided with all the necessary literature in order to learn what was required of us. Also, the atmosphere and the environment were very pleasant.“
„Mentors and the team were helpful at every moment, and willing to share their knowledge on the topic. During the internship, I had the opportunity to work on a web application in the .NET framework for the first time and realized that I want to further improve my knowledge on the topic.“
„What I liked about the internship was the fact that I could learn about HTML, CSS, JAVA Script, C#, Git and more. Also, I experienced what working within a team really means.“
What are the next steps?
The first steps into a professional career do not have to be nerve-racking and exhausting. They should be viewed as a secure environment, where you can make mistakes and take lessons from them. Every year, on multiple occasions, we organize internships for motivated students who are ready to take initiative and push themselves out of their comfort zone. In partnership with the Faculty of Sciences, Faculty of Technical Sciences and the Faculty of Economics, we are happy to be able to continue our mission of sharing knowledge and giving new opportunities to young enthusiasts.
