We are terrible busy recently but we keep on working with our partners and gathering new ones. We are fans of the community and we feel very good about any mutually beneficial partnership we might establish.

Here are all the partners we added recently:

Technology Partners

We added Nettigo and MonkeyFab who are helping us with hardware for the Jitter hackathon.

Scientific Partner

We added Copernicus Science Centre as our Scientific Partner. We already wrote about it, but since this is new partner category, we thought it’s worth mentioning.

Hackathon thought partners

We also have two partners that are helping with the hackathon providing not only support, but also providing lots of creative ideas about how the hackathon should look like. Those are Pan Generator and Ogród Interakcji

Hackathon community partners

We have a new community partner for hackathon as well - this is Makerland - our friends from Makerland prepare awesome event in March!

We are extremely happy to get such great partners and work together with them on the event!

Here at MCE, the very idea behind the conference and hackathon came about from our desire to be part of a larger community. From small local events to global gatherings, our organizers (both companies and individuals) are involved in a variety of different communities. Thanks to this, MCE has some great events surrounding it.

If you are here before and after the event you definitely need to check these out.

Thursday 9th: GDG Warsaw organizes an event with our speaker Wiebe Elsinga talking about open source projects.

Thursday 9th: Human Tech Art and WJUG are organising an event with NAO Robots - our partners from Aldebaran Robotics - both the programming and humanistic side the robots will be on display.

Sunday 12th: Last but not least, the Copernicus Science Centre is doing an event with NAO and Synapsis Foundation to not only showcase the robots but also show how they can help with rehabilitation in autistic children as well as showing how autistic people see the world.

Sunday is also WOŚP day and there will be WOŚP volunteers in front of the Copernicus Science Centre gathering the money for the charity event. It’s not a partner of ours officially but we thought it might be good to remind you about this, while you are visiting the Centre, so you won’t forget your change when leaving your home or hotel.

We wanted to make sure you knew about these events as it is because of partners like these that a viable community can develop. If you have the time, join them at these events.

The New Year has already brought some great news!

Mobile Central Europe is proud to announce not only our partnership with the Copernicus Science Centre but is also really excited that this amazing venue will be the location of the Jitter Hackathon.

Copernicus Science Centre

The Copernicus Science Centre is one of the most advanced interactive science centres in Europe and is housed in a stunning building on the banks of the Vistula River. MCE is overjoyed that the hackathon will take place here as the Copernicus Science Centre focuses on engagement and discovery of the world around us.

What is more, the team from Aldebaran Robotics will have a special exhibition at the Centre the day after MCE, Sunday 12th. The Robotics Lab of the Science Centre will feature a showcase of robots from Aldebaran. The Synapsis Foundation will also be present to talk about the use of NAO robots for helping with the rehabilitation of autistic children and will conduct workshop to show visitors how autistic people see the world around them.

Everyone, including regular visitors, will have the chance to check out the exhibition and see the robots in action.

We can’t wait to see the venue in action! Since we’ve already sold out of spots for the Jitter Hackathon, it looks like this will be an event well worth attending.

We are hard at work, getting everything ready for the conference. Of all the things to do, communication is maybe one of the most important. We want to reach every single person possible beforehand and once the conference starts, to tell all of you what’s going on. It is also important for us for make sure that what happens at the conference has a wider impact than just for those in attendance. Due in large part to these ideas, we are proud to announce a number of additional media partners who will be committed to getting the word out there about Mobile Central Europe.

Our growing list now also includes: Software Developer’s Journal, Mobile Trends, Marketing Mobilny.pl, Crossweb.pl, Antyweb, Interia as Media Partners.

We are also proud to announce Jestem Mobi as the official blogger of Mobile Central Europe.

Welcome all of you and thanks for helping us make our conference that much better.

Between the MCE organizers we tried to figure out ways to convey our message behind the conference in a short and concise way. Our creative team got the idea that we should have a short movie showing exactly what you can expect at the conference - and the movie should not be much longer than 1 minute. And they did it!

We tried it last Monday with Mobile Warsaw #9 meetup in the very Kino Praha that will host MCE. The reception was overwhelmingly positive, so here you are:

Also we have added new partners in a new category - Official Bloggers. We are getting more and more media coverage in Poland and our bloggers are really interested to participate and blog about us before, during and after the event, so additionally to typical media partners we also welcome Kamil Brzeziński, Artur Kurasiński, Katarzyna Dworzyńska and Łukasz Kłosowski as our Official Bloggers

MCE is proud to announce three platinum sponsors!

Additionally Allegro Group became sponsor of the accompanying Jitter hackathon!

Our relationship with each of these sponsors has been great so far and we are thrilled that they have taken such an active role in the event. Each of these firms is an active part of our community, and if you don’t know them yet, you will soon enough.

Soon, we will have a feature article about each of our sponsors. This “Meet the Sponsors” section will give you all the info you need to know about the people and firms behind the event just before the conference.

Sponsorship of MCE is a great way to take a more active role in the event as well as score some serious face-time with the key people and companies in the market. We are close to announcing our diamond and gold sponsors and would love to have your logo listed as well. Get in touch with us at [email protected] for more information about sponsorship opportunities.

So we thought the last week was a partner’s week… Oh boy, how wrong we were.

This week we welcome a number of partners who help us with our event preparation. Here is a short list of those added so far and why we are excited:

First and foremost, our technology partners. We are technology-driven event, that’s why technology partners are so important to us.

  • NAO by Aldebaran Robotics - this is the news of the day! The cool robot we first met at Devoxx in Antwerp and we fell in love immediately. The friends from Aldebaran Robotics from France are going to run the 6th workshop at the Jitter hackathon and they will have a separate corner at the conference lobby as well (and we have more cool stuff we are working on together - more on that soon)

  • Taptera - we are working very closely with Taptera from the beginning, and some of our organizers are from Taptera’s Polish office. Those awesome people are providing the conference application for Mobile Central Europe - we are just testing the final touches with the app now and will announce it really soon.

Secondly, we grew our community partner’s list. And there are really cool partners we have:

  • GDG Minsk, Belarus and CoocoaHeads Belarus. With our friends from the east, we are becoming really Central European event - we have people from Germany, Ukraine, Czech Republic and now Belarus coming! We have also people from Western part of the Old Continent which welcome with equal hospitality!

  • Krak Droid - they are our friend conference in Krakow, where even some of our organizers will speak. Their conference is next week and you will be able to win something (guess what?).

Last, but not least - we have also grown significantly our media partners. Media Partners help us to reach many people that we would not be able to get to otherwise. We have Android user, CIO magazine, Computerworld, IT Wiz, Dziennik internautów, Magazyn Programista, PracaIT.com.

That’s 11 partners announced in one week! It’s been really busy here!

So we were looking for a cool partner for our Jitter hackathon. It had to be someone current, it had to be as well local, we didn’t want a faceless corporation…

Maciek: Steve, I’m sorry it’s very sweet of you guys don’t really have a great rep for hardware…

SB: Oh really, and what about Zune?!

Ah well. Anyway - it turned out we didn’t need to look too far, just down the road to the former capital of Poland in Krakow.

The good people at Estimote have rather foolishly agreed to part with some of their cutting edge Estimote Beacon devices. If you’ve not already heard of them, then that’s because they’re still under wraps at an unknown facility deep in the Tatra mountains guarded by former US Navy Seals.

Estimote Beacons are set to revolutionize how retailers engage with shoppers by using BlueTooth LE technology to engage with their customers and enhance the in-store experience (and more!)

Not only will our hackerthonians get their dirty mitts on the hardware, but the brains behind the Estimote technology will be on hand to offer advice and expertise. We must have got them pretty drunk during our last meeting because we’ve secured awesome prizes for this year’s winners. Guess what might be the prizes!?, Yeah you got it!

Estimote is only the first technology partner announced for our conference! Expect more to come on that very soon!

Have you heard of the saying “Two brains are better than one”. Well we decided to take that a step further and we’ve been harvesting brains left, right and centre in order to make our event more mobile, more central and more european than ever!

Take a look at some of the great grey matter sources to which we’ve been tapping in:

  • GDG Lviv - Lviv the high life with Google in the Ukraine!
  • Geek Girls Carrots - ladies love tech - and these girls know how to code! Carrots are playing a vital role in promoting new tech amongst Polish females
  • Mobilization - a mobile developer conference in Łódź. Wait! Is it our competition?
  • WarsJawa - Warsaw’s very own Java based workshops - you can practice here all the ways you can make your Hello World app more verbose!
  • Warsaw JUG - You can get your Java fix every two weeks and find out why a Hello World application that’s over 150 words is actually a good thing!
  • GDG Poland - watch out! Google’s after your children! Not really, but GDG Warsaw is a good start - here the classic bribes like beer, pizza and naff stash tempt Poland’s best and brightest into the hive
  • PyWaw - if you need to know how to care for your pet Python in Warsaw this is where you go.

All these organizations became our community partners and will help us with making the event better! You can even see the beautiful logos of all of the communities here.
