The Hive Presents: Service Mesh
There’s always something interesting going on at The Hive.
Yesterday, it was our Solutions Architect Camilo C. introduction to Service Mesh and Istio. After a fascinating talk about the core concepts, and a demo to see them in action, Camilo held a Q&A.
Thanks to everybody who came for asking so many intelligent questions – it was great to network (well, drink beers) with you all afterwards. If you’d like to join our team of brilliant Inventors, right now we’re looking for DevOps Engineers and Software Engineers, check out our openings.
The Oscars wasn’t the only big event in film last week; Friday saw the inaugural Workshop Film Festival in Málaga. As part of their team-building day, our TAG team (Technology Automation Group) was split into groups and set the task of coming up with a short video on the theme of customer service. All the winners would like to thank their parents, The Workshop, and Brian Lally, who ran the event.
Meanwhile in London the Marketing team enjoyed their own teambuilding afternoon with a trip to the V&A museum’s Design/Play/Disrupt videogame exhibition. For a company that makes games, it was great to get an insight into other creators’ process and play around with some really innovative games.
They came away full of ideas… We know how to have fun here.
What a weekend we had!
For two days, the kitchen in our Málaga office became Designathon HQ. Six teams of Inventors were given a crash course in Design Thinking, then used their new skills to find creative solutions to real business problems.
The judges had a tough job with the teams putting forward some outstanding ideas, but The Quokkas came out on top with their simple, smart and fun design for an eco-friendly app.
