After RubyEnRails 2009

RubyEnRails 2009 has been a great experience - the talks, geek dinners and conversations with other developers have all been very interesting. Amsterdam is definitely the right town to organise such an event :).

Indirectly inspired by what we’ve heard there, we’re already trying some new things in our work, like we have some Cucumber tests running on Selenium and beginning to implement use of Tokyo Cabinet in a production app.

For a recap on all talks, it’s best you check out the official conference blog. For reference here we’ll highlight some the published slides and links:

Update: Justin and Javier gave us more links in the comments.

Semaphore Winter '16 Hackathon

The end of each year is a time to make plans for the following year and get inspired to work on new and exciting things in the year ahead. In December, we decided to organize a Semaphore hackathon for the entire company to celebrate the end of 2016 by getting creative.

People pitched their ideas and others voted with their feet by joining the projects they were most interested in. We split into multidisciplinary teams that had three days to capture new ideas and have fun making them a reality. Keep reading to find out what are the projects we came up with, what we learned working on them, and what are some of the outcomes of our first internal hackathon.
