Timisoara is a city with a great focus on tech and its recent years have shown immense growth and development within this industry.

Our curiosity about the local tech community has also arisen from the fact that there aren’t many dedicated events that put the spotlight on their interests and activities or any information about their needs (in terms of access to knowledge and other opportunities).

And there’s this 88.9% on which Prow is really based on. See you in November!
