For more than a decade and a half, our engineers have provided all-round support for satellite operators, equipment manufacturers, teleports, and multimedia and broadband service providers. We consult our customers, collect the requirements, design the system and develop the final solution.
Over the years, Amphinicy has grown significantly. It runs several projects of various sizes; some of these projects are in-house while others are done in collaboration with other companies, mainly European companies involved with the space industry. When we joined Amphinicy, it was to join a long-running collaboration with a company headquartered in Belgium. That included us regularly travelling to Belgium to work locally for several weeks at a time, and in this post we would like to talk a bit about that experience.
We have attended a great Satellite Communication Systems education held by professor Michel Bousquet from the Institut supérieur de l'aéronautique et de l'espace (eng. National Higher French Institute of Aeronautics and Space, or simply ISAE) that was held on SES premises in Betzdorf, Luxembourg. Although the education was highly technical, professor managed to squeeze everything in four busy days, without skipping chapters or taking any shortcuts.
Just recently, NASA Eagleworks laboratory have published a peer reviewed paper on EmDrive – a new type of drive which doesn’t require propellant to generate thrust. Is this a game breaking technology that will change how we perceive space traveling or is it just another headline that will be forgotten before years end?
The end of this year brings us great news which shows that our work has been recognized on a larger scale.
On Tuesday, 29th November, at the meeting of the Council of the European Union, EU science ministers presented a booklet „Developing a European Research and Innovation Ecosystem for Innovative SME´s” with examples of successful innovative companies from every EU country, Amphinicy being one of two companies from Croatia.
An enterprise application is a kind of software that is commonly characterised by its complexity and largeness.
Enterprise applications usually have a large number of layers and require a good up-front design to meet requirements regarding quality, scalability, performance, maintainability and many others. The requirements are rising rapidly, just like the needs of businesses to stay competitive.
Software architecture paradigms are constantly evolving to address those requirements. The following are the trends in modern enterprise application development.
This year again a lot of our developers and designers attended the annual WebCamp Zagreb conference. The conference was sold out the day before the opening, and unlike before the attendance was exceptional. Luckily, the organization was superb so enough coffee, tea, and even fruit, was just around the corner, while at the same time you could’ve been persuaded by the sponsors to make a (dramatic?) shift in your career at any moment. All in all, I’ve compiled a couple of opinions on some of the talks, which remained to be quite diverse in topics, but less focused on front-end web technologies; WebCamp might even rename itself some day!
Every project, sooner or later, ends up with accepting delivery at customer’s premises. The sooner the better.
We are looking for Software Developers (m/f) who live and dream about front-end development and want to follow that passion through working in our company.
Busy as IBC
IBC (ex International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam is one of the largest annual events in the region: an exhibition and conference for professionals in media, broadcasting and accompanying business. All the exhibitors, conference speakers and visitors span a multitude of categories. There were content creators, equipment manufacturers, business professionals and technical associations; and all other participants that may somehow be connected to the broadcasting industry.
In September, three Amphinicy employees visited PyConUK in Cardiff. PyCon UK is the annual gathering of the UK Python community and its friends from around the world. The conference took place in the positively regal Cardiff City Hall, a building with beautiful architecture in the center of Cardiff where more than five hundred Python enthusiasts attended talks about various topics in Python world.
