Things went faster than I expected, because on my second day of internship I was already on a mission. Some call it a task, I call it a mission because the feeling I get here is that everything each of us does, whether as an intern or a senior Clouder, matters just as much.

A Biased Advice To 4PSA Interns

Yes, I love interviewing interns. I’ve met people who were less than impressed about this fact, claiming that I was losing valuable time because interviewing interns is very straightforward. I strongly disagree, I find it somehow more challenging to discuss with a student than with an experienced senior executive. I’ve learned a lot from these interviews and I will never stop meeting interns before they join our team.

This article is dedicated to our interns and comes with hands-on advice that you might find useful before your first day at 4PSA.

Bill Gates’ Boldest Predictions and How 4PSA Is Fulfilling Them

Gates

 

We’ve always heard about Bill Gates the geek versus Steve Jobs the visionary, but the reality is both had a bit of the other in them. In fact, Gates had probably more vision than Jobs had a geeky side. Here’s some compelling evidence of that.

After reading Gates’ 1999 book “Business @ the Speed of Thought,” Markus Kirjonen – who is a business student at Aalto University in Finland – did a writeup aggregating the Microsoft founder’s boldest predictions for the future. Not surprisingly (to us, at least) many of them have or are in the process of being fulfilled.

Hour of Code, Our Way

A couple of weeks ago, I received an invitation on Facebook to attend Hour of Code Romania. I don’t usually pay attention to such notifications, but this one was somehow different, as the name got me thinking 🙂 I know what you can do with a line of code, but what does an hour of code represent?! This was enough to trigger my curiosity, so I did a little research.

Follow Your Passion, Whether for IT or…Tea!

You know what they say, businesses made with passion are the ones that make a difference. It’s the case for any industry, which got us thinking: how does passion for other types of businesses differ from our passion for IT?  What is it that drives others?

To explore this notion of passion, we’ve set out to learn the stories of people who are putting a shoulder to a very different wheel than ours. As of September this year, we’re thus organizing a series of monthly internal meetups called Labors of Hercules*.
