Verb Days 02 is over and it’s pretty obvious now that we have improved quite a bit since our last internal hackathon. Everyone had fun, worked hard and … focused more on presentations. We’ve learned a lot for the next events.
It is so easy to distinguish an engineer (or an engineer to be) from a non-engineer. When we interview people for a software engineering position, we want to determine how much of an engineer the candidate is. That’s why we ask a fair amount of questions apparently unrelated to software. Real engineers focus on the problem, break it into pieces, and analyze them. They translate the problem into their “own words”, making analogies with common, easy-to-understand processes. Once their solution is challenged, they are able to optimize and explain it.
There is a common perception that collaboration is the universal solution to all issues that software companies encounter. A lot of effort is invested in improving collaboration between tech people, starting from tools that can be easily purchased and ending with programs that encourage collaborative behavior. The idea is quite simple: if people collaborate better, the output of the entire team, both its quality and quantity, will be better.
While I do not want to mitigate against collaboration, there are specific cases where it simply doesn’t work. I will exemplify that and suggest some solutions as well.
Ever since our release of the world’s first UC software in 2006, all service providers have been asking for a way to turn communication into a more personal experience. After 2 years of intense development, we are finally ready to make the big announcement.
The entire 4PSA team proudly announces the release of TouchMeNow, a revolutionary solution that bundles software and hardware to deliver a previously unimaginable communication experience. Making use of haptic technology, TouchMeNow incorporates an unexpected, but highly desired element to Unified Communications: touch.
It’s time to meet the 4PSA teams. Well, not everyone, just some members that will socialize at the StagiiPeBune event that will take place on Saturday, March 16th, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Politechnica University of Bucharest in Faculty for Automatics and Computers hall.
We prepared for you some virtual reality training and of course, nice prizes for the brave ones that take on the challenge to bike into the cloud.
