New Years resolution 2014: ZgPHP in English

Published: January 3rd, 2014

As you might have noticed on few of our last tweets and Facebook statuses, we are starting to communicate in English only.

From now on, all tweets, facebook statuses, announcments, email notifications etc will be written in English only. One thing that will be bilingual (Croatian & English languages) is meetup itself. Hopefully this will change in future too but we are not willing to force our speakers to use English if they are not willing or feel they can’t do it at nearly same quality.
