what people say

"Shift was awesome! Even though I'm well connected in Silicon Valley, I ended up meeting a great friend and new business partner there. Split is a beautiful place and I can't wait to go back."
Justin Kan Co-Founder Twitch
"For me, Shift was about perspective. I found the mix of local Croatian tech talent and international entrepreneurs refreshingly delightful. Wrap the whole thing up in the history soaked city of Split, and you’ve made for one unique and unforgettable experience."
Tom Preston-Werner Co-Founder GitHub
"Shift stands out as a rare gem in a world of cookie cutter tech conferences. Listening to insightful talks from the brightest minds of today’s tech scene while surrounded by the enchanting history of a town built nearly two millenia ago, you’d be hard pressed to find a more inspiring blend of past and future. Oh, and it’s the most fun you’ll have all year!"
Evan Stites-Clayton CTO Teespring
