The company does its best to keep up with the cutting-edge technologies and popularize them among the younger generation of software engineers. That is why MERA is always enthusiastic about providing training or internship for students, participating in IT events and supporting IT initiatives.

Throughout the year, MERA participated in various local IT events as a speaker and a sponsor:

  • GDG GOOGLE I/O Extended;
  • Google Cloud NEXT'17
  • GDG GOOGLE I/O Afterhours;
  • GDD Europe 2017 Extended;
  • GDG DevFest NN 2017;
  • DefConNN 0x03;
  • DefConNN 0ő06.
In September 2017, MERA took part in the first TEDx conference of Nizhny Novgorod. Maksim Leykin, a leading CTO at MERA, was invited to the event as a speaker where he delivered on the application of new technologies in our everyday lives. 

In 2017, MERA continued holding MERA meetups introduced in the previous year. Compared to 2016, the company tripled the number of conferences and extended the subject matter from iOS/Android development to Java, Web Development, Mobile Security, and C++. This lead to an increase in the turnout: more than 500 people from 70+ companies visited MERA meetups in 2017. Besides, the composition of the meetup speakers has diversified: apart from MERA engineers, more and more experts from other IT companies in Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow are coming to share their knowledge with the guests.

To recap, MERA meetup was first introduced in October 2016 as a venue where software developers and test engineers of different level can solve difficult cases and share best practices. The format has proven to be popular with the local IT communities and will be further developed in the upcoming 2018.
