This is a gathering of professionals, founders, leaders, disruptors, and dreamers. This is Shift. And we want to Shift Your World.”
That is how Infobip Shift, a 2-day multistage hybrid conference dedicated to software enthusiasts, describes itself. We heard their calling at Software Sauna, packed our bags, and traveled to Zadar to see how its value proposition stood up!
