Maciej Krzyżaniak

Senior Security Incident Responder GSK Tech Centre

The Pozitive Technologies conference left a very good impression in my memory. Four thematic tracks, filled with high-quality presentations by specialists in their fields, meant that everyone could find something of interest. A big round of applause is due to the organisers, who, despite the tough times, prepared the online conference in an exemplary manner, providing great opportunities to meet and talk to many industry experts.

Marek Gawiński

Senior Data Platform Engineer, Allegro

I had the honour of being a speaker at the Pozitive Technologies conference. Great organisation, interesting thematic sessions and, above all, interesting lectures. The Pozitive Technologies Conference is a great place where specialists from various IT fields meet and from whom you can draw inspiration and knowledge. Thanks to such conferences, you can gain knowledge about current trends and solutions used on a daily basis in various organisations, or make new contacts and develop your career. I am convinced that the next edition will be just as interesting and full of interesting topics.

Wiktor Doktór

Prezes Pro Progressio

Is it possible to talk about IT all day long and, with each speech, each session, each presentation, gain the desire for more and soak up knowledge by the handful? You can! Such is Pozitive Technologies - a conference dedicated to the IT industry and modern technologies organised in Poznań. Is it worth taking part in this event? Of course it is!

Darek Dwornikowski

Global Head of Engineering, Nordcloud

I had the pleasure of being invited to participate in a panel discussion at the Pozitive Technologies 2020 conference. I believe that the conference touches on issues and aspects that are important in the local IT market, but through the universality of the topics and the high level of the speakers, it can easily compete with nationwide conferences. The panel I attended was well run - in a relaxed atmosphere, I always appreciate events that do not impose too rigid a framework and allow you to be yourself. From the point of view of a native of Poznań and a local patriot - I am glad that the City of Poznań puts emphasis on promoting our technology companies within the Poznań Silicon Valley.

Łukasz Kujaciński

Operations Manager, GSK Tech Centre

Our conference was a good opportunity to prove that Covid-19 did not harm the Poznan IT industry. Several thematic tracks built under the watchful eye of the programme board, where the speakers were experts from Poznan, are a good example that not only Warsaw or Wroclaw are places where IT feels good. The Pozitive Technologies 2020 conference was also unique for two reasons. Firstly, the event was held online and secondly, participation was completely free. I hope that, as the Poznań IT community, we will continue this initiative in future years by including new companies.
