September was an exciting month at Softvision! Our Softvisioners work hard, but also enjoy taking time out of the office together. There were many team building excursions across our Studios, including a baseball game in Atlanta, a night out in NYC, marathons in Mysore and Cluj, dining out together in Timisoara, and a Master Chef competition finale in Mysore.
Some of the month’s highlights from around the world included Programmers’ Week, Droidcon and a ping pong tournament with our friends at Macy’s.
The Macy’s and Softvision Ping Pong Tournament and Innovation Time was a popular event, with over 40 participants from both companies who matched off in both singles and doubles competitions. After the tournament, Softvisioners presented their innovative ideas to the Macy’s stores systems leadership team.
On September 21-22, Softvision was proud to participate at droidcon as Knowledge Partner. Droidcon, the global developer conference series that focuses on the best of Android, “brings together technology and people who do amazing things with it.” The event in Cluj-Napoca featured two workshops led by Softvision experts, covering Machine Learning and Augmented Reality. In addition, Alin, our Android Community Manager, was one of the speakers presenting an open source library that he helped create.
Programmers’ Week was another main event at Softvision in September. Organized around International Programmers’ Day each year, Programmers’ Week celebrates technology, innovation, and knowledge. This year we expanded globally to all of our Studios, engaging all of our communities, improving knowledge and expertise and encouraging career development.
Finally, we’d like to congratulate Ryan Morgan, Head of Arrow Digital Studio, and Raul Rodila, Managing Partner, Arrow Digital, for their work with Water Mission on the first clean water project in Narok, Kenya. Thanks to their efforts, Narok’s people now have easy access to all the water they need.
Congratulations to all our Softvisioners on another successful, impactful and fun month at Softvision!
