When we first established PHP Serbia community six years ago, IT community didn’t exist in the form it exists today. We were just a couple of enthusiasts who were gathering together from time to time, exchanging ideas and giving suggestions about how to develop the business and build IT community. Places where like-minded people were gathering were forums, messengers, Skype and other social networks and only a few organizations were communicating with its members through offline community.
This is when our story started developing. We decided to move our online community into the offline mode and we established PHP Serbia community, with a mission to make Serbia become a recognizable country that brings together experts from the programming world.
A great evidence of being successful in turning plans into actions is having Mr. Rasmus Lerdorf, the founder of PHP programming language as our guest and main lecturer on PHP Serbia Conference 2017.
Since our idea was to bring different programming languages experts (other than PHP experts) to our country, we created GrowIT organization. Our main goal is to provide our community with great and innovative IT knowledge and spread that knowledge even further.
