Every day is an adventure when you are an engineer, or if you have engineers in your team. They always come up with some cool ideas out of the corner.
Being led by the famous Albert Einstein quote „Creativity is intelligence having fun”, we always encourage our team members to nurture their creativity and implement their vision.
In the moment of inspiration, one of our colleagues who is a PhD student in mechanical engineering, has created by his hands a 3D printer! This was his passion project after work and he decided to spend his spare time to make something useful.
He had a demo presentation at ICodeFerence 2018 in Mokrin House, so we saw how the magic works from the first rows.
Just when we couldn’t be more proud of him, he made a little surprise for us - ICodeFactory logo in 3D shape!
For those who don’t know, ICodeFactory logo represents a factory of ideas from whose chimney comes out light bulb as an idea. Because of that, our colleague Bojan made an extra effort to blow our mind with surprise – he inserted a small lamp into the light bulb, so we really have “Eureka logo”.
Thank you, Bojan for this cute lamp. We like your curiosity, courage to try something new, attention to details and can’t wait to see your next mechanical project.
What is your passion project in free time?
Last year we organized conference named ICodeFerence under our roof at the Master Congress Centre. This year we wanted to make it more special and memorable for our employees so we put our minds to think out of the box and off our everyday beaten path and organized it on the road.
We had an enjoyable Saturday at the Mokrin House. Beside our main goal to learn from the professionals in ICodeFactory, we had a plan to have some fun.
The topics we covered this year were from three completely different areas:
- Our dear Ivana, Master of Science in Graphic and Engineering Design, told us about general guidelines and exceptions in making user friendly forms, and how are the forms one of the most important components of digital product design.
- We had a very powerful session from our colleague Boško about Web UI testing automation with demo project which was testing our website.
- Last, but surely not least presentation from our colleague Bojan, who is a PhD student in mechanical engineering, was about 3D printer made by his hands! We heard about tools, materials and techniques he used while making it. With so many fewer resources he successfully challenged himself to make functional 3D printer and printed us a little white ICF cube as a demo of his home project.
We started our yoga class very hilariously, but as the time went by we relaxed our body and mind. We can surely say that understanding connection between mind and body is easier while sitting at a desk and with a computer keyboard than combining stretching and breathing techniques.
Our second recreational activity was archery. First, we had a short introduction about archery and then we used bows to shoot arrows. It’s simpler to have instinctive shooting when you imagine your favorite bug as a target.
ICodeFerence on the road was such a great concept. Everyone had a fantastic time in Mokrin House, and hospitality we had in Mokrin was over expected. Thank you all for another great ICodeFerence event. We are already looking forward to organizing next one.

As you step out of the comfort zone of education and walk into the job market, it can be difficult to bridge the gap between academics and the “real world.” University gives you the knowledge to do the work, but actually finding a job involves connecting with employers. We believe there isn’t a better way to do that than Student’s Career Fair.
ICodeFactory is glad to support students’ initiative to organize Career Fair at the Faculty of Sciences in Novi Sad. For the third year in a row Students Organization is successfully connecting companies and the University to provide students of all majors and departments the chance to find out the right information about their profession.
The purpose of this Fair is to inform students where to invest their gained knowledge after graduation. On the one hand, this is a great opportunity for students who wish to interact with as many companies as possible all under one roof. On the other hand, companies can easily present the advantages of their work to the right audience as well as get to know a lot of interesting graduates.
Being part of this great event makes us proud since we are the official partner with the Faculty of Sciences. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership and welcome students’ initiatives to make the first step in starting their career the right way.
