The brain is a funny thing, using it hard will boost its performance. Also, it wants to be challenged. Or better said, people want to be challenged. Challenge makes us learn, it inspires us. That’s why we set out to challenge ourselves the three other Fridays of the month.
How that is being done is completely up to our developers themselves taking into account our technological vision and roadmap. Want to explore something new in a team? Go ahead. Do you want to get certified in a new field? Go for it. Do you dislike some of the software that is being used internally? Build your own. Been there done that actually.
We call these our sharpening-Fridays. They’re fun. They facilitate learning, self-development, and experience. Also, they encourage creativity. Results that benefit our clients and ourselves.
We learn every day, but every Friday we get a little smarter ;)
