This year marks the 15th anniversary of ICodeFactory. The main goal throughout these years has always been to deliver success to individuals and companies and help them implement their vision by using our expertise in technology and creating innovative solutions that bring great value.

To create successful projects and continually improve your knowledge, develop expertise and resources, it is important to choose partners you can rely on to make these things possible. It has been more than a decade of partnership between Microsoft and ICodeFactory, and this year we are pleased to announce that ICodeFactory has once again earned the status as Microsoft Gold Partner.

To achieve a Microsoft Gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams to prove their level of technology expertise, have a staff with advanced Microsoft certifications and submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects. By being a Microsoft Gold Partner, customers can easily identify companies that have proven their commitment and competence when delivering Microsoft technologies. This is the highest level of competence and it means constantly delivering high quality services and developments.

This partnership allows us to continuously expand our knowledge, work faster and with the latest technology, have exclusive access to Microsoft tools, technical support, updates, and other useful information to help us provide the best user experience. We are happy to say that this partnership reflects the quality and variety of our technical competencies and our expertise, as well as the level of customer satisfaction.

ICodeFerence Youth 2021 – Meeting virtually

In the light of the 15-year existence of ICodeFactory and sharing knowledge with others, we have announced that our internal conference ICodeFerence will be dedicated this year to students, under the new name ICodeFerence Youth 2021. 
As we all know, ICodeFactory has always been the team that pays great attention to professional development, learning and sharing knowledge. In alignment with that, this year we decided to help students start their careers the right way and also, we were curious to hear what motivates students, what are their professional ideas or career dilemmas.  

To get the answers, we did a quick survey to see what interests students have and what they wanted to learn at ICodeFerence Youth, so we would know what to focus on the most while preparing the conference.

ICodeFerence Youth 2021,

Throughout the three sessions we held on April 8th, we covered the most important topics to help students get a better understanding of real-world projects and work as an employee: 

•    Student projects vs Real-world projects 
•    Importance of IT certification; Microsoft Certification Training sponsored by ICodeFactory; programs for students at ICodeFactory 
•    My career path and how to get a job
During the session Student projects vs Real-world projects, our panelists advised students to use the time at the faculty in a better way, to prepare for teamwork, learn together and to observe the student projects as if they were for a client.  
One piece of advice was to do a lot of research and create a wider picture of the project because that is how better solutions come. Our colleague Boško advised the attendees to make a five-year plan and not to allow small distractions to turn them off the road. At the end of the panel discussion, our CEO shared his personal experience and advised students to always try to understand everything they are doing, and why lifelong learning can be an exceptional potential for professional successes and advanced career goals.
Students also had an opportunity to hear all information about Microsoft Certification Training sponsored by ICodeFactory, how to apply to this program and what are the requirements for interviews. Every year the interest in this training is higher, and since the number of participants is limited, attendees had several questions about how to prepare better for selection.  

The final session, My career path and how to get a job was a highly requested one. Nowadays, knowing which opportunity to take and how to get ready for the selection process can be a game changer when starting your career. Our attendees received a lot of advice, especially regarding on why professional development is so important, as well as how to write a CV, a cover letter, and how to prepare for an interview.  
If we could sum up all the lessons shared that day into one message, it would be that the key to professional development is exploring and finding new ways of gaining and spreading knowledge. Knowledge only grows by usage and by investing in knowledge and education, we invest in our future.

Thanks to everyone who made this happen, especially our panelists and lecturers for their time and for sharing their knowledge. Also, thanks to all of our attendees for their presence and for asking questions. We hope this conference has fulfilled your expectations and that you have learned a lot.

Dear students, choose wisely where and how will you start your career. See you next year or sooner, who knows, maybe some of our attendees become our team members and speakers for the next ICodeFerence Youth. 


ICodeFerence Youth 2021

This year prevented us from socializing with students, but we still wanted to continue to exchange ideas, learn together and get to know each other better. That is how we came up with the idea to connect with students virtually and establish ICodeFerence Youth 2021.

ICodeFerence is an internal conference by ICodeFactory, created with a goal to share knowledge among colleagues, partners, and special guests. In previous years we went through a lot of topics, technical and business, and with international speakers.

Fundamental contents at ICodeFerence Youth are to help students to start their careers the right way. 

Starting a career is not easy, there are many differences between the status of a student and an employee, as well as the way of working, organizing, and learning on projects. Our team has made presentations and lectures to prepare you better for professional challenges.

The second session contains several unified topics on personal development through the certification program. Through the lecture of our MCT, students will be able to hear from the front line what are the benefits of IT certification for the individual, team, and company. We will also present in more detail the Microsoft Certification Training program, as well as other programs intended for students at ICodeFactory.
