New Croatian version of our website

New Croatian version of our website

Yesterday we launched a new, redesigned version of our Croatian website – inchoo.hr. The new design follows the inchoo.net’s look and feel with a little twist in the header to improve the differentiation of the two websites. The difference is obvious in the color scheme and contour of our hometown Osijek that can be seen in the header.

Report from Magento Developers Paradise @ Ibiza

As is mentioned earlier at one of the posts, Tomas, Ivica and me were “the chosen ones” to go to Magento developers paradise conference at Ibiza. So how was it? In one word – incredible. It was paradise in its true meaning.

Some of the members traveled by plane for the very first time so it was interesting to watch their facial expressions during the takeoff. We met lots of great people, including Tsvetan Stoyhev, Thomas Slade from Blue Acorn, Myuselim Myuselimov, Josh from WebShopApps, guys from Magento core team and many others.

New Inchoo.net Design

New Inchoo.net Design

Hi Everyone. Since I started working at Inchoo – in fact since my interview, Tomislav (our CEO) has been talking about the revamping of Inchoo.net. In Brazil we have a popular saying: “In a blacksmith’s house, the skewer is made of wood”, which can be applied to almost all types of businesses. You know the drill, unless something is really hurting, we keep our non-billable projects on the back-burner and keep the focus on our clients and opportunities for new projects. Thankfully, we found a gap in between projects and I was the designer responsible.

1st Inchoo Learning Day

1st Inchoo Learning Day

Check our images on FlickrWe’re hoping to start a new tradition with the event we organized today. 1st Inchoo Learning Day took place in Zlatna Greda, Croatia where the group of geeks (Inchooers) gathered to discuss and learn about programming best practices. The idea is simple. We will take one Friday every two months to go somewhere in the nature and spend a day working on education and knowledge sharing.

We knew it will be a fun event, but we weren’t sure if it will be as useful as we hoped. Now, few days after, things are clear. It was a great thing to have a day like this where developers will move away from computers and share knowledge between each other.

It took me 19 hours to come to Osijek from Kazan, my hometown – 2 trains, one plane, one bus ride, couple of metro stations in Moscow and I was finally here! I arrived one Wednesday and was lucky to catch last days of the Summer on the local Copacabana beach, before I started my work here in Inchoo.
