The wroclove.rb Ruby conference is among our favourite events to go to. This year, a number of representatives from iRonin were present, to engage with the community, learn, share their own knowledge and experience, and enjoy the atmosphere created by gathering so many like-minded people in one place. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and we’d like to share our observations and the things we learned.

Remote work has been a hot topic of late, particularly in industries which don’t rely on the physical presence of employees. In software development, for example, pretty much all aspects of the job can be done from your couch, with a computer in your lap. But what does this mean for productivity, and what about those of us who enjoy the office atmosphere, in a world that seems to be rapidly moving towards a fully remote work culture? In this article, we’ll take a look at current workplace trends and what companies are doing to keep their teams happy.

RogaLOVE is a charity event meant to raise awareness and gather resources that can help improve healthcare for those who need it most: children in need of transplants. The proceeds will go towards building a specialized hospital for this purpose. RogaLOVE takes advantage of a Poznań tradition: the Rogal Świętomarciński (st. Martin’s Croissant). These certified baked goods are traditionally produced and eaten around the time of the Polish Independence Day on November 11. RogaLOVE allows participants to purchase the Polish croissants and send them out as gifts. The proceeds go to charity.
