As a project manager working for a development agency I need to manage several tasks every day. The environment which I am working in is really dynamic and it is so easy to forget something. I am constantly receiving emails from clients and I am also in a day to day cooperation with developers and other co-workers. Every channel I use for communication generates tasks. So the question is how you can manage all these task without going insane.
In January 2018 we hosted a Fake news themed hackathon at our place in Karlín. We organized this nearly 24-hours-long meeting together with Endowment Fund for Independent Journalism and Open Society Fund, so that the programmers could cooperate with data analysts, designers and journalist to enrich their own projects.
All we wanted for our 5th birthday was to spread happiness all around, so we had set an open call for non-profit organisations. We wanted to create an app that would support selected non-profit organisation on a long-term basis. And the winning project was Muzzle Bear from a Centre for Children with Hearing Impairment Tamtam.
There are many agencies out there that offer development for mobile applications, but how do you choose the right one? The development of an app tailored to specific needs is not a commodity with clean parameters that can be acquired as easily as office supplies.
During November, our Team, consisting of David, Dominik and Jirka, participated in the CEE Hacks – Smart energy Hackathon. “Don’t you have enough programming to do from your regular work?” you may ask. (more…)
Why I’m in Berlin

Every June, Ackee is celebrating its birthday. This year’s was fifth and so we wanted to make it special and decided to give a present to somebody who needs it more than we do. We have chosen the Center for Deaf Kids Tamtam and we will create an app for a million crown for them.
What are the best strategies for development if you start a project from scratch? What is the most effective way to get your startup running? What about the software architecture? How much does it cost?
Ackee will celebrate its 5th birthday this summer and so it feels like the right time to commit some good. Here is a videocontest for non-profit companies where one of them will be given a million-crowns-costing app for their project or an equally expensive brand new website.
What? Ackee and cooking? Well, not entirely, even though we did show we knew our way around the kitchen at the #dnesnekodim event. However, considering we feel better behind the keyboard, our cookbook will not be about food but about programming. Read about how we prepare the best applications on the Czech scene, what tools we use, as well as all of our secret procedures. (more…)
