One of its key areas focuses on creation of various preferences for industry representatives; these include measures for support of experts. In addition, the Information Technology Development Fund has been operating in the region since 2016. With its assistance, we have carried out major professional conferences, computer programming championships among school and university students, and training sessions”, - said Svetlana Openysheva, Adviser to the Governor and Head of the regional state public institution "Government for Citizens".

The Digital sphere will include the following workshops: Design, content, management, marketing, SEO, lead generation, etc. Over 30 reports of various experts will be submitted for the Career and Personnel sphere.
According to Boris Nuraliyev, digitalization is the main way to improve efficiency of commercial enterprises and government agencies. The main issue in this sphere is to find qualified personnel and to organize their work.
“I have heard about the conference many times, read recent reports and wanted to attend it one day. I think that Stachka is a unique phenomenon. It is an international conference for five thousand people in Ulyanovsk. I hope to see it with my own eyes. In my report, I will review the most interesting examples of open-source DBMS that, for some reasons, have stopped developing. I will try to classify these reasons and to answer the question what is necessary for successful development of an open-source product”, - said Alexey Milovidov, ClickHouse developer from Yandex.
Postgres Professional will also organize an IT cross for participants of the conference. It starts at 19:00 on 26 April and will take place at the Singing Fountain, which is located near the Lenin Memorial.
