All Things Java Meet-Up

In order to interact and engage with our market, some of our consultants created a meet-up group online called ‘All Things Java’. Within the first two weeks of creation, the group had 100 members. Around the same time, we also arranged our first ‘All Things Java’ event, which took place on 13th September 2017. 

A talk on Microservices

We invited Noel King, Chief Technology Officer at VSware, to come and speak about a hot topic within our market; Microservices. His talk, which was called “Banishing Snakes from Greenfield Development”, was really engaging. It gave excellent insight into the new technologies and trends in the market and how his company use this to work more efficiently and innovatively. In fact, one of the slides in his presentation contained a list of ‘VSware Stats’ which we now use when speaking with candidates. 

Having worked with Noel previously on both permanent and contract positions, he has first-hand experience of how we work. He even gave two of our consultants, Edel Bergin and Cliodhna Scully a special mention at the end, as he’s currently looking for Java and UI Engineers and they’re the point of contact for the roles.
