Javantura, organized by HUJAK, the Croatian Java User Association, is a conference about Java, the most frequently used development platform in the world, and it is the only conference on this topic within the region, with a constant tendency of growth. The third conference had 70 % more participants in comparison to the previous one, and the number of lectures climbed up to 23. One of its organizers is Dr. Branko Mihaljević, a lecturer at the Information Technology program at RIT Croatia. "Besides the excellent concept of the conference organized "by the community for the community”, we are especially proud of the increasing number of foreign lecturers and the majority of lectures were done in English language”, says Dr. Mihaljević.

A group of RIT Croatia students from Zagreb campus attended the conference along with Dr. Iva Bačić, who is also a lecturer at the RIT Croatia’s IT program. "Attending a conference, it being a scientific, professional or community driven, is a truly rewarding experience. By listening to the presentations, lectures, and speeches, attendees gain new information about some hot topics and applications in their field of interest. It is important that members of the world of academia; both professors and students; attend conferences as consequently, the class lectures gain a new dimension, and we all get the proof that the lab, homework and project assignments are applicable to real-life, industry projects and problems” says Dr. Bačić.

RIT Croatia students were also happy to be a part of this conference. Patrik Đurasek, a sophomore year student at the IT program in Zagreb said "I have really enjoyed the Javantura conference and I learned a lot about the state of Java in current businesses. That whole experience means a lot to me as a future developer and employee."
