As you can see, we’ve revamped our website…
There were a few reasons for this:
- To create a section for our co-working space
- To make the site more collaborative
- To reflect the feel of Silverpond accurately
We’re now hosting on Github-Pages. This should make it easier to collaborate, as we won’t need a custom build-pipeline, and deployment becomes a piece of cake.
The co-working space is very exciting. We moved office recently and have a whole floor free. We’re keen to turn this into a co-working space called “The Pond”. Part of what we need to do to make this happen is to create a landing page to send people to when we refer to the new space. And so, you can now visit The Pond’s landing page!
Currently we are sanding the floors on Level 1. Despite a whole lot of sawdust, we are optimistic about how it will look when complete!
We also feel that Silverpond has changed fairly substantially over the last few years. We’re not making as many Rails apps as we used to. We’re working with larger clients on harder problems. Our focus has broardened to include data-science and research, as well as embracing functional-programming and other special-purpose technologies.
Andy put in the hard yards of the re-design and it was all looking pretty great, but then he added a boids simulation and it was just right.
