We've heard your requests and I‘m happy to announce that we're arranging an unofficial MeetUp for Upwork users in Niš, Serbia! Join us for a friendly chat and a sneak peek at the improvement opportunities we’ll share on Saturday, March 26. 2016, from 12pm-2pm at Tilda, Svetozara Markovića 8, Niš.
Our plan is to host an informal get together for all Upwork freelancers who are interested in attending the event. You’re welcome to come and meet your fellow colleagues, share your experience and ideas, and check out a few skill improvement opportunities some of our friends have prepared exclusively for Upwork users! Most of all, this is a chance to become part of a larger freelancer network and learn more about exciting activities organized by a local IT Community. Share this announcement with your Upwork freelancer friends so they could join us as well.
Please take 10 seconds to confirm your attendance here and looking forward to seeing you at the MeetUp!
I would like to thank everybody who attended the Freelancer MeetUp on Saturday, joined in the discussion about important aspects of freelancers' work and the potential for growth within the freelancer community in Serbia!
A special thanks to our guests who showed their support for the freelancer community and presented their freelancer tailored courses/skill events/shared office facilities: Marina and Dragana from the Spell Language Center, Marko from the LevelUp Computer Programming Center, Dragana from Younify and our hosts Saša and Aleksandar from Tilda coworking. Congrats to Miroslav and Milan on winning the Meet Magento Serbia tickets and look forward to their feedback and photos from the conference.
We touched upon the subject of writing successful proposals, managing freelancers' earnings, Upwork Pro Groups and evaluation criteria, and a number of other topics. Hope we'll build on this experience and spread enthusiasm and positive vibes shared in the MeetUp.
I'd like to invite freelancers from Serbia and Macedonia to share their feedback, suggestions and requests in the Country Group, so we could help foster personal growth and build a support network by sharing information about freelancer/skill related events.
Here are a few pics from the MeetUp and hope to see you all of you next time!
