IKEA is also in Russia, and Russian wood is being imported into Scandinavia. And just because you've got Statoil doesn't mean you've got anything in common with Scandinavia.

Ideed.

I personally believe that, despite some ties, neither the Baltics nor Poland belong to Northern Europe.

And I completely agree with you, but we don't claim we are Northern Europe or some Scandinavian wannabies, but Lithuanians have some complex because they are ex-soviet state in Eastern Europe and they pretend they are not.

Leading Lithuanian mobile development and publishing company “App Camp” spreading to Kaunas

Quote:
Most of the people in Baltics know “App Camp” name as the biggest mobile application hackathon in Nordics and Baltics, which attracts a lot of app developers from whole Europe. Last year this event enlisted 450 participants from 12 countries, there were 81 app idea suggested and 58 mobile apps developed during 48 hour weekend. 60 strong mentors helped participants to find their ways in IT, marketing, design, business development an funding spheres.

App Camp’s goal – to make Lithuania a innovative mobile app country. Having the most talented mobile app developers, App Camp acts important role in Lithuania’s app development scene. Next steps are spreading into Scandinavia, Asia and USA markets. App Camp specializes in mobile app development from “proof of concept” stage to incorporating mobile applications to business processes of the biggest companies, optimizing daily company actions and enlarging company’s profitability. App Camp, JSC is leading Lithuanian mobile development and publishing company. At the moment we are working with strong Lithuanian companies and spreading our activities into international markets.

App Camp together with Omnitel implementing unique initiative in Lithuania and Europe – together with top Lithuania’s educational institutions we are establishing mobile application laboratories. The goal of these new laboratories is to unify business and academia, to inspire youth to use their theoretical knowledge in the direct practice by creating new mobile applications. In 2012 we opened three mobile application laboratories in Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda. Laboratory in Vilnius university was opened with Chinese telecommunication company “Huawei”, Kaunas university of technology – with “Samsung Electronic Baltics”, Klaipėda state college lab with “Sony”. New laboratory with “Microsoft” and “Nokia” will be opened soon in Vilnius Gediminas technical university.

App Camp sees Kaunas as a city having big IT potential, which has strong programmers’ community and the forge of new talents. Establishing active company expansion we want to use Kaunas and Kaunas university of technology potential. We are opening our new department in Kaunas and searching for highly talented and energetic iOS and Android developers. If you find yourself suitable for this position, do not hesitate to contact manager of Kaunas App Camp department Ramūnas Keliuotis.

In 2013 we are planning to have a strong 10 developers team in Kaunas to build iOS and Android projects

Go and discuss about thisissue with professionals. It would be nice to hear from their opinion



[QOUTE]How we are different? Except of course that Polish economy, owing to its size, is far more diversified and hardy? And please don't bring up the Lithuanian High-Tech/R&D industry like your countrymen seem to love. There are IT companies in Poland that may hire more people than the Lithuanian IT industry combined.

But what kind of product do they make? One example from Lt - Getjar and their influence on worlds telecommunication industry. Say whaaaaaat.
When polish startups will attract worldwide attention and created something original rather that saas, then ok.

I havent's seen such grim and run-down commieblocks in Poland like those in Vilnius. They contrast well with the polished Old Town and new office buildings. Like in Moscow, but smaller in scale.
i made the same impression in Poland. So what? Subjective matter

About 80% of Polish commieblocks are already insulated and painted it's often subjective to say if they look better than originally but since in Lithuania you hardly done anything with this type of buildings the difference is rather clear. I would also say more was done with the spaces between the buildings in Poland, there are more trees and gardens while in the baltic countries it's mostly just grass (similar to other ex-soviet countries in this regard) but such things are probably harder to measure. Anyway the renovations in Lithuania seems to be more concentrated in certain areas that often look better than central areas in Polish cities when it's more spread out and often suburbs are cleaner than the center.

in 2010, 100 millions knew, but you don't. Not a big deal We do not have any problems with internet/mobile tech in LT.

Pn the other hand,, we do not consider Poland as a technological (it/mobile) advanced country, so ... pitty. (see Lithuanians achievments)

Poor? When i see Polish tourist in Vilnius buying meal from supermarket while mostly lithuanians are sitting in pubs, which are more expensive than in PL, i made a bit different opinion.
poor, earn less...You make me smile, dont stop.

I can agree with that. But when Poland started renovation program ? About 1990? then we had a bit different issues to solve.
less trees and gardens? No. Maybe in LV/ESt, but not in Lithuania. Maybe in some areas*, but overall, grandmas like to dig here...Just google.
But still, what the hell does it have to do with development? Nothing. By the way Commieblocks in Lt were prepared according Helsinki example.
Almost you feel like living in the forest

At least we can afford holidays unlike Lithuanians. Facts are facts, average salary is visibly higher in PL. You can see hordes of Lithuanians in PL shopping in discounts because you don't have any. Also you can see the difference how Polish villages look and how Lithuanian, contrast is huge, of course Polish look wealthier. Same with transportation, you have many much older vehicles.

Cha. Wrong again.
Midsummer, also known as St John's Day.

In Poland:
Girls throw wreaths made of flowers into the Baltic Sea, and into lakes or rivers. The midsummer day celebration starts at about 8:00 p.m. and lasts all night until sunrise. People celebrate this special day every year and call it Noc Świętojańska which means St. John's Night. In most places, the main event is the burning of a large bonfire.

In Lithuania:
Midsummer is commonly called John's Day (Joninės) in Lithuania, and is also known as Saint Jonas' Festival, Rasos (Dew Holiday), Kupolė, Midsummer Day and St. John's Day. It is celebrated in the night from the 23rd of June to the 24th of June and on the 24th June. The traditions include singing songs and dancing until the sun sets, telling tales, searching to find the magic fern blossom at midnight, jumping over bonfires, greeting the rising midsummer sun and washing the face with a morning dew, young girls float flower wreaths on the water of river or lake.

In Norway:

As in Denmark, Sankthansaften is celebrated on June 23 in Norway. The day is also called Jonsok, which means "John's wake", important in Roman Catholic times with pilgrimages to churches and holy springs. In most places, the main event is the burning of a large bonfire.

etc.

VAT is larger for food. Poland is cheap.
Not a big deal. So what? Sometimes I go to buy clothes to London. SO what?

there are discount shops, but taxation is different. and we really dont give a shit on that...
Villages? Lithuania is a small state, many villages now are,l et's say, "dead", without residents.
Btv, i hate when you drive in Poland and your smaller cities/village houses are so near the road.
Do you have a stats about older car?
I am a frequent guest in Poland, i can see differences

Lithuanians are amongst the highest people in Europe..
Avarage heigh in Lt (men) - 1.813 m (5 ft 11 1⁄2 in).
I am 196 cm.
Old data. That wiki info about ± five years ago made many discussions...Now, i do not remeber where the problem was, but the organization excluded smth/ or not included. Lost their heads later

Since the Neolithic period the native inhabitants of the Lithuanian territory have not been replaced by any other ethnic group, so there is a high probability that the inhabitants of present day Lithuania have preserved the genetic composition of their forebears relatively undisturbed by the major demographic movements,[22] although without being actually isolated from them.[23] The Lithuanian population appears to be relatively homogeneous, without apparent genetic differences among ethnic subgroups.[24]
A 2004 analysis of MtDNA in a Lithuanian population revealed that Lithuanians are close to Indo-European and Uralic-speaking populations of Northern Europe. Y-chromosome SNP haplogroup analysis showed Lithuanians to be closest to Latvians, Estonians and Finnish people
Lithuanians, like most other Baltic/Scandinavian cultures, have been known for being people of above average height. At the end of the 19th century, the average height of males was 163.5 cm (5.36 feet) and the average height of females was 153.3 cm (5.03 feet). By the end of the 20th century, heights averaged 181.3 cm (5'11") for males and 167.5 cm (5'6") for females.[29]
Lithuanians and Latvians are closely in the Baltic Nations (including Estonia, populated by non-Indo European speaking Estonians), they have similar yet separate languages and cultural traditions.
