But, it is not only on Elance.com that more and more jobs are posted Online. According to the Staffing Industry Analysis the whole “Human Cloud” industry surpassed $1,000,000,000 globally and is expected by 2018 to reach $ 5,000,000,000. The biggest part of these jobs will be IT & Programming related.
Steffen Hedebrandt, Country Manager – Nordics at Elance.com will give a general description of what Online Platforms and the Human Cloud is. How many people are using them worldwide and in Norway? What kind of skills are in demand?
Then we will welcome two experienced programmers. Michael Chletsos from Hawaii and Titas Norkūnas from Lithuania. In spite of timezone challenges and remote locations they work together successfully on a daily basis.
Having heard these stories we will turn the event into an open discussion about Online Work and Collaboration. We are eager to hear your experiences with this.
Looking forward to seeing you this day.
