The company is also currently negotiating with several strategic investors, as the possibility of a direct sale is still on the table.
Dear business partners, we would like to state that eMan has informed all its employees about the latest facts concerning the coronavirus, and is taking every possible precaution.

The project manager is not keeping up with deadlines, bugs are in every line of code, and the budget is under fire. But don't worry, a miraculous red pill glimmers on the horizon. An agile world in which everything flows like a dream. For those who cannot manage good results in traditional project management, it’s perfect. Sit back as we watch one of the biggest mistakes about agile, in real time.
I was there when agile development was introduced at eBay. I worked as a Scrum Master in a software house.

On the last day of May, Prague hosted the biggest conference for mobile app developers in Central Europe. And, as always, we did not miss the chance to be one of the partners of the event.
