As Katie mentioned in her most recent blog, ReadyTalk Engineering just held labs a few weeks back. It’s a time for our audio and web conferencing engineers to explore their passions and expand their knowledge and skill set. However, what wasn’t mentioned is my favorite part…The Awards ceremony! When the day is finally winding down and everyone is sipping on a nice cold brewskie, everyone from engineering puts their votes in for 3 separate categories.
First off is Most Evil Genius - This is the project that could take over the world. Or maybe change the way people think about the ReadyTalk service. OR maybe BOTH!?! Ryan Kish is our most recent recipient of this award for his implementation of Puppet for managing server OS infrastructure. Check out Ryan and his trophy:
The second award goes to our Shiniest Presentation - This project has got bells and whistles and maybe a Keynote presentation with lots of lolcatz and fancy transition effects. And for this go around the award went to the iOS Team for their iOS participant. The team was made up of Joel Dice, Matt Weaver and Michael Keesey.
Our final award goes to the Most Geeky - This project will be pure geek. If Einstein had been part of ReadyTalk Engineering, he would have chosen this as his labs project and pulled it off with a Flawless Victory! And Most Geeky went to David Clements for his presentation on data analysis of polling usage.
Not only do our winners get a very fancy homemade trophy to place on their desk for several weeks, they also get to walk around the office with a great sense of pride...that is until next Labs rolls around. Please stay tuned to see who our big winners are next go around!
If you think you have the next big idea, and could be the next recipient of one of our ReadyTalk Labs trophies please let me know. I would be happy to talk with you in more detail about the engineering opportunities we currently have available.
