SSU Scientific Society of students, post-graduate students, doctoral students and young scientists took part in the implementation of the initiative of CustomPCSoftware (CPCS) Sumy IT company. On March 19th, 2016 due to the joint efforts of the organizers, SSU became the place for gathering of active IT-professionals from our city wishing to exchange professional development ideas and informally discuss the major trends in the industry.

User Group Format is a completely new idea for our city. But events like this one have become popular among the programmer community in the whole world long ago. These events are basically the informal meetings of experts wanting to discuss current professional issues.

More than 70 participants took part in SSU meeting. They had an opportunity to discuss and listen to three reports over a coffee. The reports were dedicated to the ways of developing web-applications faster and better. Not just Sumy leading developers were among the speakers –the guests from Kharkiv, the representatives of well-known ORO Inc. IT company also took an active part in the meeting.

According to the HR Manager of CPCS Yevhen Dmytriiev their company is one of the largest in the city. It has reached such a level of development that they want not only to improve internal processes, but also benefit Sumy IT community. They are sure that Sumy PHP User Group will become such a project.

In the nearest future CPCS plans to hold these meetings on the regular basis. This will allow creating the first actively functioning platform for professional development of programmers in our city. Also, User Group’s reports can serve as master classes for SSU students-programmers.

According to the Head of SSU Scientific Society of students, post-graduate students, doctoral students and young scientists Mykhailo Oprysko, SSU Scientific Society has eagerly supported the initiative. He was confident that the cooperation would be mutually beneficial. Mykhailo Oprysko assured everyone that SSU would continue to engage in such practically oriented, important, and new for our city projects.

Based on the results of this event can confirm that Sumy PHP User Group is the project badly needed for the professional community of our city. The initiator of the project, the leading developer of CPCS Oleksandr Savchenko says that they couldn’t even dream about such active participants (experienced developers as speakers and guests from Kharkiv, more than 70 listeners). They are very pleased that over 94% of those who have filled out a questionnaire after their meeting, consider it a success. This is the best appraisal of their work. The company will try to continue in the same vein.
