TryoSummerParty, 2017 edition
It’s that time of the year again! Time for uncomfortable family meetings, TODO lists that will be quickly forgotten, crazy last minute holiday shopping and, of course, a new edition of the famous #TryoSummerParty. An as-incomplete-as-you-can-get photo of the TryoGang at this year's #TryoSummerParty. If there’s one thing at which we are almost as good as coding, it’s definitely parties and celebrations. So, as we do every year, last weekend we all got together along with our significant others and kids (yes, we are growing up) to celebrate another amazing year at Tryolabs and also look back at all the great things we accomplished in 2017.
And the Tryolabs Scholarship goes to...
Earlier this year we announced the creation of the Tryolabs Scholarship, aimed to support university students at early stages of their careers in computer science and engineering. The experience as a whole was amazing and we selected a winner and a runner-up a couple of months ago. Now that things settled down, we are ready to tell you more about them. And Tryolabs Scholarship goes to… (drum roll please) Let’s start by introducing two outstanding people, examples of hard work, dedication and determination.
Tryolabs Working Trip NYC, in pictures
Our commitment at Tryolabs is to create the best hi-tech company to be part of. We believe this is done by creating the best opportunities in terms of professional and personal growth for our team. This year we decided to do our first “Tryolabs working trip”. We rented a house in Brooklyn for one month for our team to visit and work from there. Read more about it here. The idea in a nutshell:
No Sleep till Brooklyn: Our master plan to conquer the East Coast
A pic from one of our visits to Governour Island. We’ve always been fans of the Silicon Valley and the amazing startup culture in California. We’ve been traveling from our engineering HQs in Montevideo to the Bay Area many many times and it has always been very fun and inspiring. Some of us had also the opportunity of visiting East Coast clients in Washington, Boston and NY, and it’s also a blast!
Tryolabs Scholarship for Uruguayan Computer Science students
At Tryolabs we firmly believe that every student who has the passion, determination and commitment to develop a Computer Science career, should have the opportunity to do so, independently of his/her economical condition. In Uruguay we are very proud of our public and free University educational system, which forms top quality engineers and professionals in different fields. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of Tryolabs’ engineers come from the public University (Facultad de Ingeniería, Udelar).
Announcing our new website & blog
As Tryolabs keeps moving forward, new great clients and a continuously growing team, we decided it was time to bring a new version of our website to life. Check it out! Although we loved the older one (here is why), we made the decision to switch to a new design that can reflect what we currently are, scale with the company’s evolution and bring major importance to the blog (our major traffic source).
Elasticsearch Meetup: Elastic + Tryolabs. V2.
May 19th came by and the second edition of the Elasticsearch Meetup took place, under Tryolabs Engineering Events series and co-organized with Elastic. Since this event was intended to host a larger audience than the first edition, we decided to move it from Tryolabs’ offices to – the brand new – Sinergia Tech. With around 70 attendees, a wide variety of beers and delicious sandwiches, the community gathered together in order to enhance their knowledge upon Elasticsearch and the overall Elastic Stack.
Open Doors #1: the kickoff of future events
Hey! It’s me here again. Last wednesday we hosted our first Open Doors at our Montevideo offices. It was really great! We met very cool people and chatted about technology, coding & random stuff while delighting ourselves with cold beers and pizza! This event set the kickoff of a series of Engineering Events we will be hosting from now on. Stay tuned at our meetup group ;) Back to yesterday, the agenda was very dynamic with 10-15 minutes talks from different perspectives.
Open Source DayWatch - The story behind
It’s been quite a journey with DayWatch. Since 2012 we’ve been working for it as our wonder child and now it is time to let it fly even higher. Here is the story: Birth It all started with the niche idea to help Daily Deals companies (very trendy in 2012) analyze their main metrics at any time, any moment. Industry reports, insights, market share & product performance were the most powerful aspects of our beloved tool.
Swift talk in MobileUY event
Continuing with the Meetups’ spirit, last 20th of August, our Mobile Guru - Bruno Berisso - exposed in the first 2015 MobileUY event. More than 50 attendants carefully draw their attention on the - meticulously designed - slides which depicted a clear scene on what is going on with Swift. Bruno interacted with a Playground in order to engage the audience and be even clearer about the concepts explained. We also encourage you to check out this playground and get to understand the concepts in a better way.
