Hello App

We organised the 5th edition of Hello App (formerly Mobile Summer). Hello App is our free app development event, organised for students from Timișoara.

PLAI Festival Apps

During the internships we organise, we work on community apps. This year we rewrote the PLAI Festival apps in React Native. Also, we redesigned the apps and updated their set of functionalities.

Supporting Local Contests

We continued supporting local contests with a focus on app development. We are happy to see the community grow. 🙂

New alchemists

Our team is growing bigger and bigger. Two new members joined our team this year.

Mobile Summer got a new name and looks and became Hello App. We rebranded our app coding sessions to be able to organize them any time of the year and maintain the same focus: apps.

Team Building in Prague

We organized our city break style team building in Prague, where we visited the city and attended the top-notch mDevCamp conference.

New office

We relocated our office in a beautiful apartment in an early 20th-century building in the city centre.

7 years of Cobalt Sign

We celebrated our 7th anniversary at Ambasada, where we enjoyed a nice, homemade dinner and a glass of champagne.

Cheers to 2019

We went to play pool and bowling, followed by dinner and a toast for the year that passed. We are looking forward to new experiences.
We wish you

Happy Holidays!
