New project in Laravel!




Spring has brought us lots of sun and new tasks (even though we are open for new challenges even in late autumn). Our team has been busy lately, we recently paid a little visit to Luxembourg to start a new project in Laravel.

Two gifted VM devs are supporting the development of Doctena, an app used to searching specialist doctors and book medical appointments online. This app is widely used in Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

It’s getting not only more and more popular but also better and better as we speak. As of today, every month the app serves approximately one million bookings for more than 10 000 medical experts. With numbers as high as these, one can easily guess that we are talking about the biggest application in its field in Europe. We, on the other hand, are very proud and excited to have the privilege to take part in such a huge, important exciting project.

Workshop IQ@SIBB: DOCKER 101 in Berlin – summary




Two events in two 2 months – it was definitely an intensive and very challenging time for everyone in our team.

The second Docker workshop - IQ@SIBB: DOCKER 101 – practical introduction, was the first event ever we organized abroad . Thanks to our German partner – Sibb Ev. we had the pleasure to conduct the workshop in Berlin city centre.

Thank you very much to all the 20+ attendees for showing up, actively participating and inspiring discussions we had during the whole event.

Many thanks also for all who watched the live streaming. We hope the presented content and practical tasks were interesting and useful for you.

We are both extremely happy and proud that we managed to met the high German expectations. Organizing an event on such grand scale for the first time was a very important and empowering experience for us, which we hope to use when the next opportunity occurs.

We already can’t wait to meet you during next meetups!

New project, earlier Oktoberfest for us!




It could be just another project, but it's always a NEW CHALLENGE. We could just tell you, but again we are EXCITED to announce. It seems this time VM.PL is going to celebrate Oktoberfest a little bit earlier.

That’s because of our German and Java speaking super talented Vm-er who travelled to Munich on January to kick-start a new project.

He will be supporting a leading fintech company in delivering high-end, individually tailored IT solutions for key financial institutions in Germany. Our employee will be staying there until March and then continue working from our Wroclaw office.

We are really proud of it.

Prost!

Vm.pl Team is currently celebrating the exceptional award we’ve received recently.

On 12th December we attended ITCorner Summit 2017 congress, where besides inspiring discussions with branch experts, we were especially honored by IT Corner association. We received Achievement Award for outstanding success in the IT market in 2017.

We are really touched and grateful that our drive and results are being noticed.

Fortunately, thanks to the engagement of the whole team, we succeeded in stepping out of the circle of crisis. Now we are standing strong, looking ahead to the future and celebrating all successes big and small.

We are going to continue treading the route we have taken and keep on working hard as we’ve always had.

Thank you for everyone who made it possible.

A start of a partnership with Germany's No 1 engineering and IT services provider




We are happy to announce that we have just signed a contract with FERCHAU Engineering GmbH – the biggest engineering and IT services provider in Germany.

The company, with more than 8,000 employees at over 100 branches and 90 locations in the country, is the market leader in engineering and IT projects as well as talent management. We are looking ahead to this cooperation!

We contribute to a new shopping experience




We have gone all multi-disciplinarian lately. This time we got involved in the shopping market. In September, together with our Berlin partners from Advalyze, we completed a project (in Magento technology) involving creating a touchpoint for renowned underwear Zimmerli brand of Switzerland. This cutting-edge device has a fully interactive touch display serving as an online store for the manufacturer. Clients may browse all the available products on the screen and then place an order, as well as choose the most convenient means of payment and shipping.

This touchpoint has been installed in a new store in Zurich, and it is the trailblazer for the many devices which will be used in all Zimmerli stores around the world. Should you have the opportunity to visit Zurich, we recommend you drop by and give this latest shopping style a shot. Meanwhile, our talented team is looking forward to the upcoming innovative projects with German partners.

Vm.pl co-creates leading testing platform with TestDaF-Institut




At vm.pl we do not only speak German, learn German but now thanks to our new client, TestDaF-Institut from Bochum, we are going to TEST your German. This school year we start a project where our new team of German-speaking Java wizards will develop the most popular platform for testing German as a foreign language.

As our language skills are getting better and better every day (we do work hard on them), we hope to soon use the same testing platform that we will be developing to test our very own Deutschkenntnisse*
