Conscensia coordinates many activities for our developers in Ukraine – our recent challenge was a Conscensia Team for a half marathon in the city Lviv, where our development center is located.

Some of our Ukrainian developers were ready to participate, along with our Danish CEO Carsten Hansen and Project Manager Oluf Brix Hiltmar from our Danish client/co-owner Systematic. It was a well-organized race, which both entailed some good altitude metres and a route in many exciting parts of Lviv.

It generates team spirit when common interests (in addition to the passion for software development) creates a bond and give us shared sociale experiences and memories!
