Happy New Year by ICodeFactory

2020 was specific in many ways. We had to pay attention to our health and safety more than ever. Business wide we had to go into a fully virtual environment. Work from home gave us an opportunity to practice our communication, collaboration and new ways of managing tasks. All conferences were held online and we took an opportunity to join a number of great online events. 

This year may have prevented us from realizing all the ideas we had planned a year ago, but it has not prevented us from achieving some great results. This is probably the best year in our history business-wise.

Our story about delivering MOCs training worldwide is becoming more successful every year. Despite the impossibility of teaching on-site, the demand for Azure training has been incredible in 2020. We felt real digital evolution and its benefits this year with the largest number of training held in one year.

During the year, we continued to work with beginners, so we adapted the Microsoft certification training sponsored by ICodeFactory in a remote environment. Students were able to learn about Microsoft technologies from the comfort of their own homes. 

Together with several faculties, including the Faculty of Economics, the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Technical Sciences, we have organized groups of student internships. The virtual doors of ICodeFactory were open not only to IT students but also to those who wanted to learn about Business Development and Sales.

In our work with students, we had an opportunity to hear a presentation from the Vector Robotics team for the Eurobot2020 competition and support their project financially. Excellence, a desire to learn, and effort will always be appreciated and rewarded at ICodeFactory.

2020 was full of online events we could attend. We could be “everywhere” from our homes. Together with our team, we strived to get the most out of online conferences and get valuable content, experiences from experts and future trends.

The most famous regional conference for IT professionals organized by Microsoft, called Sinergija was also held online. Attendees had an opportunity to hear a lecture from the CEO of ICodeFactory - Mr. Sergej Kešelj, on the topic: The Unbearable Lightness of Being Live with Azure. It was our pleasure to share knowledge on the jubilee anniversary of Sinergija.

At the end of this year, we can say that there were still a lot of things we are proud of and grateful for. Every challenge is an opportunity and we are ready to adapt to the new environment. 

Stay safe, stay healthy!

ICodeFactory wishes you happy holidays! See you in 2021!

Sinergija20 – Digital. Since Always.

The regional brand that has been successfully gathering people from the IT field from Southeast Europe for 20 years is Sinergija.

Sinergija is an annual conference organized in Serbia and dedicated to digital transformation, information and communication technologies and their business application. Since its first release, twenty years ago, Sinergija has been oriented to Microsoft technologies.

As a company focused on software development in Microsoft technologies, ICodeFactory has been working with Sinergija since 2008, when our MCT participated as a speaker for the first time. For several years in a row, our lecturers have unreservedly shared their knowledge and experience in the field of Microsoft technologies at Sinergija.

This jubilee year at Sinergija20, one of the lecturers is from ICodeFactory again.

While we are waiting for the conference, let’s make some throwback to our previous involvements at Sinergija.


Rapid Business Applications Development with Microsoft PowerApps

There are a lot of business users with no experience in software development, but with creative ideas on how to improve operational efficiency and answer business requirements in the fastest way. These users are called citizen developers.

In our 15-year long history, we have raised many skilled developers and some of them were highly-motivated citizen developers. By the time they became professionals who build applications used by some of the greatest world companies.

Microsoft PowerApp, ICodeFactory, Solutions, Custom software, Citizen Developers

In order to provide an opportunity for non-professional developers to implement their visions, Microsoft presented us Power Apps with Power Platform, as a very important tool for gaining competitive advantage for every organisation. Citizen developers, and everyone else, now can create custom solutions by themselves. 

Power Apps is a suite of apps, services, connectors and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment to build custom apps for business needs. It provides anyone to create bespoke applications that transform manual business processes to digital.

One of the favourite parts about Power Apps is the fact that apps can run consistently and smoothly in a browser or on mobile devices (phone or tablet).

Benefits of Power App are countless, but let’s name a few:

  • Low-code – the user doesn't have to know any programming language, or write a code line.
  • Speed – The process of creating an app is the fastest possible with all drag and drop interface.
  • Fully capable to integrate with Microsoft tools (Office365, Dynamic 365, Share Point…)
  • Mobile and desktop versions of the app.
  • Cost-effective
  • It’s user-friendly problem solver and easy to use.

If you want to master your knowledge in application development, or improve your knowledge in PowerApps, our trainers are ready to help you. 
Learn the differences between the Canvas and Model-driven apps. Explore all possibilities with the Power Apps, how to configure your application and create a responsive design. At the end, learn how to save and publish your brand-new application. 

Do you know what would help your business to run faster and easier? Are you ready to give a chance to Power Apps? Our MCTs are enthusiastic to help you to implement your vision.
