.NET DeveloperDays is a prominent conference for IT professionals keen on Microsoft development stack and a great opportunity to meet the best speakers in the industry. Some of our Synergy Coders decided to visit Warsaw to expand their knowledge and broaden their horizons during that networking event. The conference took place in Hall of the EXPO XXI Center in Warsaw on October 19-20, 2015.
As Synergy Coders are known as those who enjoy spending time together, we planned to organize the very first LAN party in the office, hoping it will become the new tradition. Undoubtedly, we had a hard nut to crack by selecting the perfect multi-player game that could meet everybody’s expectations. Finally, playing some rounds of Call of Duty 2 brought back memories from our school years.
First of July was an important day for the team, as we were celebrating the development of our new company identity with two new Synergy Trainees on board. For two months we were working on introducing our new brand: Synergy Codes, followed by launching our new website. I was honoured to coordinate that breakthrough process from the phase of generating ideas to bringing them to life. Therefore, it was time to summarize the results of the change and everyone’s contribution to it. During the presentation, followed by Q&A session, everything was explained and no question was left unanswered.
Is there a better way to start the long May weekend than by team-building activities? Thursday the 30th of April could have been yet another day of work at the office, but instead it was a day full of surprises. Although everyone had known the date of integration, we didn’t know what to expect thanks to Kasia’s discrecy. That, of course, led us to some speculations of what to expect. With such a hype around our integration, we gathered at Chemiczna Street at 9 a.m. eager to know what would happen next.
As the fruitful year 2014 was coming to an end, the time was ripe for summing-up the progress of company development and spending some time together in a family-like atmosphere. Wigilia party proved to be perfect for that, as it made us gather together at the table full of traditional dishes.
