This week the Amsterdam part of our team (two developers, two testers plus our Manager New Business Development and Senior Director Software Engineering) are in Serbia to join the Belgrade part of our team (two developers working there via a nearshoring construction).

Normally we communicate via chat and video-conferencing with Teams, but it’s also very important to work face-to-face once in a while. Last time they came to Amsterdam, so now we’ve come to Serbia.

These are the photos of day one. Some frst impressions: very photoghenic Brutalist architecture and picturesque cobblestone streets, OMG they’re smoking in restaurants!, nice beer, nice food, nice Slivovitz.

Belgrade reminds me of places like Vienna and Prague, but also of Istanbul: you’re in eastern Europe but also closer to the heart of the former Ottoman Empire.
