Irwin Williams, driver of engineering excellence at Teleios Systems shares on the recent Stripe study on software developers around the world.
It's here! Teleios Code Jam 2018 Training Day!
Today we'll spend time talking about the TCJ theme for 2018, the Teleios QuikWorx Rapid Application Development Platform and APIs to build great solutions.
The Live Stream is available here and the event will start at 9:30 AM AST.
We're hosting Power Hour: Live, today! It'll be at 2:00 pm. The team will be talking about and demonstrating the Azure Fluent Management SDK. I know, amazing, right?!
You'll be able to stream from right here 👇🏽
At Teleios Power Hour this week, Kneckel Bruce, one of our Software Developers in the Software and Solutions Group presented on Google's mobile UI framework, Flutter.
Here's his presentation.
Software Developer in the Teleios Software and Solutions Group
Solution Designer on Teleios PowerWorx
Secretly an artist at heart, occasionally he leaving expressions of awesomeness on the whiteboard.
He often discusses technology and design and cars on social media. He thinks Destiny is the bees knees.
Peter Teelucksingh, one of our Senior Software Developers at Teleios Systems shared with us on the beauty & the power of SASS.
In this Power Hour, we started with defining what SASS is, what it can do and some ideas for how to use that at Teleios.
We recorded the session and it's available here:
Senior Software Developer at Teleios Systems.
Works in Azure, ASP .Net, SharePoint and other web technologies.
Sometimes he wins at Halo (other times, he's defeated by Seenath and Aaron).
Peter helps coordinate Team Unbeatable at Teleios Code Jam and is a member of the Teleios Power Hour Committee
Every week we run these sessions where members of our team share something they've learnt or that they think useful with the balance of the Teleios community. We call this PowerHour.
Sometimes, we'll share them with the rest of the world. It may be live - we did a few of those last year and will come back with that format. The session may be pre-recorded.
Today, we're sharing a session where our presenter was Anand Singh. Anand is a Developer Lead, Architect and general cool guy (he knows Jiu JIt Su, so his coolness is like legit). Anyway, in this session, he shares with us about Domain Specific Languages.
This session is a Skype For Business call that we recorded, so you might see some chats, you'd hear interjection and people will just ask random questions. We hope inside of that flow, you get some value from it, just like we certainly do.
A few technologies to look out for:
- Teleios' QuikWorx
- Microsoft's Language Understanding Intelligence Service
We hear from Ryan Shripat, Software Development Lead at Teleios Systems.
An introductory session for students of the technology
On Wednesday 21st February, 2018 Teleios Systems Limited opened their doors to the electrical engineering students from the University of the West Indies St. Augustine. The three hour tour presented a componential view of Teleios Systems and to then enable students to understand what it takes to build a technology company.
Manager, Organisational Development and Corporate Services, ODCS, Gillian Codrington gives an introduction to the rationale for building a company like Teleios. This examined it’s foundations, philosophy and approach to development (of people, business and products).
What have we built?
Ikechi Griffith of the MessageCentral team, Niall Johnson of the QuikWorx Platform team and Kneckel Bruce of the PowerWorx team featured a multifaceted approach where the students were split into 3 sets to discuss the major products created by Teleios.
Software Development Lead, Solutions and Services Group, Ryan Shripat gave the students perspective about the kind of people working at or have worked at Teleios. Describing the characteristics of Teleios employees, the students understood the culture that made a Teleios employee.
Irwin Williams driver of Engineering Excellence at Teleios continued to develop a practice started a few years ago. Asking students to imagine what they’d like their resume to look like by the time they graduate. A small workshop, the students were asked to actually filled out a pre-resume and then discuss pathways to get things done in their time while on campus.
Keisha Mark-Peters & Akash Harriram used the overall Teleios Code Jam (TCJ) history to chronicle TCJ, the work of Team Unbeatable and encourage the students to see why participating in things like TCJ can significantly augment their growth and development.
What did you see?
At the end, Kevin Khelawan spoke with the students to get feedback about the overall time spent learning about the Teleios world.
Tyree Smith & Irwin Williams.
Every year we challenge our university students to solve real world problems using their software development skills. This year, with our Smart City theme, we challenged teams to use artificial intelligence, sensors, augmented reality/virtual reality/ mixed reality and security in their solutions. They did not disappoint.
Here are some quick stats about Teleios Code Jam this year, we had:
- 43 challenge submissions in Stage 1
- 11 team presentations in Stage 2
- 6 grand submissions in Stage 3
- Hardware used: PH Sensors, Cameras, Vibranium (not really) & Raspberry Pi devices
- Platforms used: Tensor Flow, Firebase, Azure & other platforms
Six (6) teams made it all the way to Grand Submission. Here are some details about each team and the solutions they built.
Project: Safe Driving
A mobile application that utilizes the phone's camera and Artificial Intelligence to determine when the driver needs an audible alert due to being distracted or drowsy.
- Asif Mahamad
- Caleb Beard
- Kevin Wickham
- Landy Wallace
