Babysitting is a special kind of a job. It is not only an opportunity to enjoy the company of children but also this is the requirement if you want to be good at it. It is much easier when you know that children like you, and you can develop a relationship with them successfully. Play and talk with them, ask questions or just having great time in their company.
Babysitting a very young child requires also some training, patience and understanding. Sometimes it is necessary to have license or testimonials, when you are an experienced babysitter. It is very responsible occupation. Never leave children alone. No matter what happens, your job, as a babysitter requires to have an eye on them in their home, during all the time you spend together.
We have mentioned about few important things about being babysitter. On the other side of the baby there are parents.

Last week we have visited Kielnarowa, a small village nearby Rzeszów. Between meadows and forest, in Centre for Tourism and Recreation WSISiZ InternetBeta conference was held. We arrived on Wednesday 10th of September in early morning, just in time to watch the first speech. This was unique time when representatives of various fields and industries related to the Internet and new technologies meet in one place to discuss many important issues concerning their jobs and conducted projects. It is really amazing that there is so many people to whom the web is the natural environment to work.
The InternetBeta Conference is a kind of special bridge between marketers, investors, interactive and advertising agencies, application developers and startups.
People come there for the great content of the speeches and also to establish new contacts and in a good atmosphere. It is clear that integration is an important element of this conference. Evening parties after all days of speecjes are unique, and new friendships are made during those meetings.
InternetBeta inspires, helps broaden horizons and provide a meeting place for interesting people.
This year we could meet 87 lecturers. Among them we could here speech of Paweł Tkaczyk that open InternetBeta Conference. Paweł Sala from Freshmail told about importance of big data: “Big data – big problem or big chance” and Roman Lodziński was talking many ways of working on the online business. Yuri Drabent learnt how to use social media channels to handle unusual campagnies even if we think it is not a good idea. On the other hand it is really good that some of the lecturers provided their speech on slideshare.net, but it is pitty that the speeches weren’t recorded. Many would like to get back to them.
InternetBeta 2014 is behind us. Now, we are wating until next year. We hope, that it will be also exciting, full of knowledge and innovation conference!
Connection between television and Internet is nothing special today. We can choose from the offer of many digital media players. One of them is Chromecast, device powered by Google.
It is a media streaming adapter, that turns HDMI-equipped television into an app-driven smart TV. It works very easy with smartphones, tablets (both iOS, Android) and laptops. It seems that this is really inexpensive Google’s answer for Apple TV.
The main advantage is its size. Chromecast looks a little bit as a bigger pendrive. It is 72 mm long. The other one is its price. You can buy it spending just £30 that makes it really competitive for Apple device.
Chromecast plugs directly into TV, and connects to the Wi-Fi network.
User chooses what to watch on another device (smartphone, tablet or laptop), and then through Chromecast displays it directly on TV. it has no real interface of its own, that means another device has to manage what to stream.
To use this small digital media player, it is necessary to install the app Chromecast on the device that is the kind of remote. The integration is smooth across both the iOS and Android system. Additionally, there is a possibility to download another app – Photowall that allows to watch photo galleries.
Powered by Google Chromecast is for sure an unusual device. It is available for purchase online in the US since last year (2013). In March 2014 Google released it to 11 new markets outside of the US.
Today we would like to tell you about one of our completed mobile project. The Entrepriseappen is both iOS and Android application that Railwaymen made with pleasure for the Norwegian company Berngaard / Sandbek. This is the another important experience for us, when we design and create the same application for two different systems.Our client presented us the requirements and the conditions very clearly that are necessary to work with this tool properly. Our team overworked solution that meet all standars. The app is created mainly for the enterpreneurs from the constraction sector including contractors, building experts and craftsmen. The Entrepriseappen allows users to manage many kind of projects and we can say it is very useful managing tool that improves work and cooperation between contarctors and customers.
One of its functionalities are easy and quick notifications to the clients in developed projects, including attachments like photos. There is a possibility to notify all the changes, delays, time extensions as well as payment adjustments right from the smartphone.Keep track of customers, projects and alerts directly from construction site. The app also automatically generates e-mail with notification form.
As the programming team we work with several managing tools that allows as to built really useful and functional application.
Railwaymen made the app for the Norwegian market and it can be used regardless of the Norwegian Standards in construction industry.
