He was working with Brazilian developers, but he was curious about the Indian way of working. We did some successful projects together and there was also a personal click.
We hatched wild plans to start together DevRepublic India. In September 2011 the plans came true: DevRepublic was born. We started with 4 developers in a small office and caught nice international clients as BP, Wild Bean Cafe and AGA Gas.
