International Internship Experience

We decided to take our internship to a greater extent and make it an international experience so we accepted students from abroad, as well. Jacob and Adam from the US and Israel joined our internship.

Quality Assurance

A dedicated QA engineer joined our team and is actively searching for each and every bug and rogue pixel.

Team Building in Budapest

Our team building took place in Budapest. We participated at the Kotliners conference and we enjoyed some time discovering the highlights of the city.

Signs of Music

Wednesdays are about music. We gather in our Zen room and we share some of our favourite tunes. You can check out all these songs on our Spotify playlist.

Every year we make sure the PLAI Festival apps remain up to date with the latest info about the festival, get new features and function well as part of our pro bono initiative.

We are supporting local contests and events with prizes and goodies. We love apps and everything related and we’re eager to see more events in this area.
