The rules of work described earlier may seem awkward. For everyone. This is a rather serious change in the work of the team, as well as in its interaction outside.
No man is an island. Everyone needs a team. The development team is a self-organizing, cross-functional team that creates a potentially marketable version of a product after each iteration.
Who would you call a product owner? Originally, this concept did not exist. There was a project manager. And his duties were, to put it mildly, contradictory. In fact, the PM was responsible for the exact opposite stuff.
On the 13th floor, at the very top of the Gomel Technopark, in office 13-03 (a pretty fearsome combination of numbers, yeah?) very unusual things for an IT company happen: transistors-resistors-circuits-boards - details in short - are lying all over the place. Moreover, there is a very specific odor all over the hall - that’s how the hardware smells.
Let’s continue our acquaintance with PieSoft professional team. The heroes of today’s story are real IT first aid officers, our go-to guys for everyone who needs IT help in case of emergency.
Want a PieSoft way to beat the ‘post holiday’ syndrome? Visiting our designers at PieSoft may be a perfect idea. Cos right here and right now the department has turned into a real Santa’s workshop where nothing else but “holiday cheer” is being made.
Summing up 2018, it’s important to note that this has been an active year for us, for all intents and purposes. Every day, we were finding something out, developing and moving rapidly in 2019, ’cause undoubtedly it’s about to get even crazier, funnier and much more interesting.
Fall 2018 turned out to be extremely eventful for PieSoft team. We visited a wide range of activities - entertaining and educational, but only few managed to combine both. A notable exception in that - the conference JFuture which took place on 13th October, 2018 in Minsk (Belarus). The five of us went up there to check it out - Vadzim Izmailau, Yauheni Lukashkin, Mikhail Kravchenko, Maksim Krasiuk, Vasili Pispanen - and the event deeply impressed all of us.
Now would be the time to come clean and admit: we’re all runners here in PieSoft, and yes maybe we are addicted to the act. We have all seen it, once again, on September 9, 2018. That Sunday, the Minsk Half Marathon was held for the fourth time and featured about 35,000 participants, including 20 PieSoft runners.
Over the years of providing IT assistance to commercial entities with different output volumes and staff number, as well as the companies belonging to different industries, PieSoft has developed a clear vision of how the technology can - and should - fit into the overall development strategy and, more specifically, a strategy to build production capacity.
