Inspiring a Community


Giving back to the community through events and Open Source projects

We aim to do our part and give back to the community, in an attempt to inspire people and contribute for a better ecosystem. From international events to an active contribution to Open Source projects, we keep ourselves pretty busy.

Teaching others is our favourite way of learning

From the very beginning we created and supported several educational programs. Creators School is definitely our crown jewel. It’s an intensive learning program that teaches people how to code for the web. The purpose of this program is to qualify people and open new opportunities for their careers.

The most precious Ruby Conference in the world!

Our team has a deep connection with Ruby and that was one of the things that brought us together when we created Subvisual. Having the opportunity to organize such an event and to continue fostering the portuguese ruby community is something we’re proud of. The second edition will take place on September 14 and 15.

A monthly meetup about JavaScript

Every month we gather all the JavaScript enthusiasts from the north of Portugal and discuss any and all things JS. It’s also a place to talk about the Web and Mobile worlds.

A bi-weekly meetup about Ruby

It can happen in a bar with a beer in our hands or at our office talking serious topics. Our ruby meetup is not only about all things related to the language and what it can do, but also about discussing the best practices.

We contribute to Open Source

In our every day work we use a lot of open source technologies. We believe it’s our duty to give back and contribute as well.

Whenever we can, we use our fridays as an investment day to dedicate ourselfs to learn and explore. Very often we invest that time in contributions to open source projects or in creating our own.

We are there

Caring a lot for our community means being a part of it.

We love organizing and participating in community focused events, both here in Portugal and across borders.

We are speakers

Talking about what you know helps to consolidate your knowledge. Recently we have spoken at Codebits, in Lisbon, at Eurucamp in Potsdam and in meetups like Coimbra.rb and Porto.rb.

We are educators

Educating is our favorite way of learning. We have been invited to teach classes at University of Minho and Polytechnic Institute of Cavado and Ave. We also give a lot of workshops and recently we have been at Semana da LEI and JOIN in Braga as well as mentoring in Shift Appens, in Coimbra.

We are attendees

We love to attend events and learn from the best in the industry. Recently we attended Craft Conf, in Budapest, Front-Trends, in Warsaw and Baruco, in Barcelona.
