We celebrated the Teleios Code Jam Awards for 2018 on November 9, 2018. Four teams came out to receive recognition for their efforts this year!
Teams came up to Teleios Systems’ Head Office at 4 Queen’s Park West to present their solutions for this year’s Presentation Stage on Friday, September 21.
Presentations are judged by industry representatives, which this year included:
Dale Wilson. Chief Information Officer at TELEIOS
Lorenzo Hodges. CEO at Plain White Table, Inc.
Joan Petersen. Trinidad and Tobago Country Representative at CARDI
Learie Roberts. Marketing Manager at Massy Technologies InfoCom
Some teams had a few challenges with completing their solutions, and described what they were going after. At the presentation stage, judges are curious about the rationale for a particular implementation and ask questions in that vein.
These were the categories the judges used to evaluate projects:
Uniqueness - Unique, useful idea; locally appropriate application or problem-solving approach
Use of Technologies - The use of the technologies selected is ground-breaking, appropriate and novel
Feasibility - Solution is technically AND economically feasible. Has a low cost-benefit. Low effort for delivery.
Theme - Solution delivers strongly on the theme. Solution has a well-defined scope.
Presentation - Clear and concise explanation of the team’s solution, reasoning and aim. Team collaboration and cohesiveness is present. Presenter engaged audience.
Now that the Presentation Stage is behind us, use the TCJ Portal to submit your projects by October 8. Do reach out to the TCJ Build Team via email (codejam at teleios dash systems dot com), Facebook or Twitter if you have any challenges with your solutions. As a reminder, the Presentation Stage accounts for 30% of your final TCJ score. However, the solutions submitted by teams will account for 50% of the overall tally.
Up next: TCJ Challenge Week!
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.
