CN Group hosts elm special interest group

The last Wednesday of every month is a busy day for our Senior Developers Tomáš and Tomáš, for this is the day they lead the elmPrague Meetup, a gathering of programmers from all over Prague who share an interest in the elm functional programming language for building reliable Frontend Apps (elm-lang.org). We held the first Meetup in our offices at the end of March and attracted 30 participants; nearly 100 have attended sessions since then. Our focus is on sharing experience and ideas, and, as a community of JavaScript and elm enthusiasts in Prague working together, building proofs of concept.

CN Group already builds internal applications in elm because it is technology we believe has a bright future. You can find out more about our meetup sessions here: https://www.meetup.com/ElmPrague/ .

10 Agile Commandments for the Digital Age

Drupal Days are not as you might at first think - some sort of ancient midsummer festival. They are in fact a series of events – Drupal Business Days – organised in various European venues to connect business leaders from enterprises and institutions that use, develop and support the Drupal platform. Each event is an unique opportunity in the true Drupal community spirit to share ideas, better understand future needs and prioritise objectives.

Drupal is an important tool in CN Group’s armoury of technologies, and we were happy that we could contribute to Drupal Business Days, in Frankfurt 18th – 20th May, by sending our Agile enthusiast Jan Černý to present his inspiring “10 Commandments of (Successful) Agile Development”. You can see and share it here.

Simply Better

The Bohemian town Kašperké Hory nestles in the Šumava Mountain Range, on the edge of the beautiful  Šumava National Park. In the medieval era it was a major stopping off point on an important trade route from Central and Southern Germany. It was here that CN Group held our half-yearly Management Strategy and Budget Review Meeting in early April.

The entire Management group from our four centres - Prague, Bratislava, Bucharest and Zíln – came together to consider how we could be Simply Better.

Customer Satisfaction Survey Results

The results of our 2016 Customer Satisfaction Survey are now in and for the 7th year in a row we have been rated at least ‘Good’, with no ‘Poor’ or ‘Not satisfied’ ratings! In fact, 92% of you rated us either ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good’. This was a little down on the 2015 result, but then 2015 was a benchmark year for us - our overall best year ever – and it would have been difficult to equal or beat that. Nonetheless, we’ll have a go at it in 2017!

CN Group hosts 3rd Partnership Programme Conference in Prague

Even though challenged by the wintery blasts of a sub-zero Prague, the third CN Group Partnership Programme Conference took place on 19th and 20th January at CN Group Offices and the Malostransky Palace.

The main themes of the conference were: Living with Disruption in a Digitised World, IT Security, Frontend Trends, Functionnal programming and F# and Working with Distributed teams.

Feedback from those who were there agrees that it was a success and many felt that it was the best and most productive of these events so far. Our people particularly highlighted the quality of the keynote presentations and the various discussion groups, formal and informal, which gave them a deep insight into our Partner’s challenges and expectations.
