UX evenings at Intexsoft

Written by Valentina Zhuk | Monday, 27 July 2015 |

Many people talk about usability (UX). However, this term is often used for selfish marketing purposes. Experts in the usability field dedicate all their time to this issue. They will tell you that usability does not mean the change of the button color from red to blue because it looks more beautiful. Usability is a deep understanding of the subject domain, on the one hand, and knowledge of users behavior and desires, on the other. We must not only make a perfect appearance as to make it convenient for use and meet users´ needs. To convert the user into the follower or even better into the system fan.

How to achieve such usability?

Interview With CEO Oleg Myaskovsky

Written by Sergei Terekhov | Friday, 16 January 2015 |

A couple of weeks ago I had a great opportunity to ask a some questions to our CEO and just a good man Oleg Myaskovsky.

What events on your opinion did have the greatest impact on the Belarusian IT market in 2014?

If we talk about custom software development, there is a great impact from overall downturn of regional and primarily Russian economics. The sanctions against Russia adversely affected the situation. A lot of companies working on this market experienced certain difficulties. It was easier for those doing business in a number of countries. Happily we are one of them. On the other hand the Hi-Tech Park expanded the list of residents’ activities with hardware development, QA, IT consulting, etc. I foresee there some opportunities for Belarusian companies.

What success did IntexSoft achieve in 2014?

We significantly expanded our industry expertise. By joint efforts we were able to enter the financial industry and started implementation of a solid Big Data/BI project.

How did we do our foosball match smarter

Written by Sergei Terekhov | Friday, 28 November 2014 |

Hello everyone!

We would like to share the experience of a non standard development, which we recently cranked.

As in any IT office during lunch breaks people are engaged in something completely outside of the workflow. The most popular hier is a table football, which is sometimes hard to get through.

That's how we decided to alleviate the "footballers" life, and ourselves too. Who has played, he can understand that it is extremely difficult to pick an adequate mate or match, finally, to wait for their turn. We would like to add a little more interesting features, such as receiving of achievements or conducting the raitings of the players.

Therefore, assembling a team of 5 developers, we started the experiment.

Now more details about the process of the development.

The first step, when we began the idea implementation was the upgrading of the football table. Its idea is very simple: each goal scored should be tracked. The project implementation was accelerated with 2 lasers and 2 photoresistors fixed in the goal, the Arduino controller and, of course, the enthusiasm of our members.

How does it work?
