Who is programming the future? Russia's strategy for progress in the field of technology

Who is programming the future? Russia's strategy for progress in the field of technology  Developing countries were able to catch up with the technological backwardness they suffered from the twentieth century, and keep pace with their competitors thanks to the digital boom in recent years. The innovations and cutting-edge technologies are no longer confined to the United States and Europe.  The digital race in Russia is gaining momentum in a variety of sectors. A report published by the Russian news.ru website says that Russian commercial companies have fought fierce competition in the mobile and home Internet sector, digital television broadcasting, banking and insurance services via the Internet.  The authorities envisaged the digitization of Sberbank when German Greve was at the head of the Ministry of Development and Trade, as well as the creation of a Ministry of Digital Development in 2008 to bolster these efforts. As such, all bureaucratic services have been digitized.  Russia has developed a full-fledged platform for the IT sector and named it the "Digital Evolution" platform based on a non-profit project called "Russia, the Country of Opportunities". In order for it to succeed, a number of factors must be present, the most important of which is the appointment of an elite group of programmers, in addition to the necessity of providing customers and enterprising investors. A similar strategy has been applied in Silicon Valley, the home of modern IT giants.  Hackathon Currently, modern methods are used to train programmer teams, most notably the hackathon, an event where computer programmers and others gather to develop software.  Usually, several teams of programmers meet in one place for several days to accomplish specific tasks. Recently, due to the restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic, all meetings are now held remotely.  During these meetings, these teams have to come up with an idea in two or four days, write code and present an initial presentation of a semi-finished product that interests a potential customer.  Many meetings of this kind are held to address topical topics, and this year, among other things, the development of a blockchain-based mortgage lending platform.  The first place was won by the EasyChain developer team, who has experience in programming the industrial blockchain, and received consultations and training in this field.  The second place went to the "Providtsi" team of the "Intes Telecom" company, headed by Andrey Insarov. This startup entered the SMS service market in 2009 and, thanks to its own program, was able to join the ranks of leading companies in Britain and the European Union. This is due to Insarov's promotion of its services to European and Asian markets, and participation in specialized exhibitions.  The company moved to London to gain a foothold in Europe and compete with the giants of the telecom services market. To achieve its goal, it launched an innovative version of the SMS service called cli co last year, which was presented at the Mobile World Congress in 2021.  Intis is a perfect example of the success of a team of programmers in developing a small regional company into a global business that generates millions in annual revenues.  Although the topic of mortgages is not among their interests, the Providetsi team was able to develop and present a blockchain platform that ensures interaction between all participants in the mortgage market, including buyers, sellers and banks.
