Q: What do you think could improve the development of the IT scene here in Zadar?
A: In Zadar, it is very hard to talk to some public institutions for some project, there are not many places where people can connect with each other and start doing some interesting IT projects. Also, people need support (much greater support) from the town of Zadar and his institutions.
