We wish you and your family a merry christmas and a happy new year!




WORDS OF INDPRO Indpro makes you grow. With these words in mind we came to start Indpro. In this magazine you will get to know our company, our members and our values. We work with values in our company. Values are important. They will guide you, they will give you comfort and provide a foundation for effective communication, production and decision-making. Values provide the foundation for the organization to move forward as one entity. Values provide the informal rules and routines that make the formal organization work as a community of practice pursuing a joint enterprise in the name of the company and its members. These values do not only make our company and members grow, it enables us to provide services to our clients that make them grow.

Our mission has always been to make our organization, our members, and our clients grow. And we work towards professionalism and personality. We work towards communication, collaboration and agility. We work together with our clients to achieve business wellness and growth. Together we will grow!








Indpro has existed as a company for more than five years now and in that time we have grown from very humble beginnings to being the organization we are today.

During those years we have continuously hired new staff to our work force as the organization and the business has expanded. As the company has continued to grow so has also the need for talented people to manage the ever increasing demands of more projects and more developers. To meet these demands Indpro will look to re-organize during 2011 and introduce a whole new level and opportunities for its Indian employees.

Some of those that were hired as long back as 2006 are still with us today and have helped us to flourish and reach to where we are today. These employees have, by now, up to seven or eight years of experience or more, and have a lot of completed projects under their belt with various technologies, various Swedish clients and various difficulties that they have overcome, including managing their own team of developers. I do believe some of them even understand the Swedish language by now almost! Indpro is proud to be able to present a new organization structure, which will be fully realized during 2011, which will nourish and utilize that experience to the fullest. It is time for these employees to take the next step in their career and growth as we will lift them up to the position of Project Leaders in the organization. This will create a tremendous support structure for executing more and larger projects and assuring the clients the best service at all times. It is with great excitement that we move into 2011 and the new challenges ahead.

Microsoft Research TechVista

MOBiLE DEVELOPER SUMMiT 2010 David Allansson participated in the Mobile Developer Summit 2010 held in Bangalore.

This is something everyone should consider before starting their development in a native mobile language such as Objective-C or Java. There is alot of cases when HTML5 is more than enough to fill all requirements. Even the phone’s hardware can be accessed in a fast and easy way.” said David Allansson. Topics covered 1. The Mobile Future - Thinking and Hacking Out of the Box 2. HTML 5 Apps - The Mobile Web Is Taking Over! 3. Human APIs, Expanding the (Mobile) Web to the Real World 4. Best Practices in Mobile Apps Cross Platform Development Wolfram Kriesing
