We believe that our industry is built on the skills and innovations of our workforces. To this end, we partnered with Code4CT, a Cape Town-based charity, this Festive Season to ‘introduce 100 Girls to Code’.
Got 5’s Futbol Skills? That’s okay, neither do we ;). But we’re going to embrace the spirit anyway – all the in the interests of having a good time. Organised by a fellow staff member, we’re excited to be supporting the SOLID Fives Futbol Tournaments.
For our third quarterly team building event our teams ventured out of the office and into the sunshine. Our Johannesburg Team visited the Cradle of Humankind Heritage site while our Cape Town Team chased after clues in the Great SOLID Scavenger Hunt of 2018
As the weather gets warmer and the braai grids and flip-flops come out – We South Africans get excited and gear up for Heritage Day. Heritage Day is often unofficially referred to as ‘National Braai Day’, so we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to have the yummiest Heritage Day around (how does a R2,500 Woolworths Voucher sound?).
SOLIDitech has once again joined the Nelson Mandela University Computing Sciences Department as a sponsorship of their 2018 Young African Women in Computing (YAWiC) Winter Coding Camp.

On 20 July 2018, our Joburg team spent their Friday afternoon at Gold Reef City Theme Park. There were a few who played it safe – either safely on the ground or on the less churn-your-stomach rides. The adrenaline junkies amongst the team, however, decided to fly, swing and flip on various rides.
In the Winter 2018 University holiday period, we welcomed 7 interns to the SOLID family. Each intern had the opportunity to work side-by-side with real software engineers, assisting our customers and committing real code.
June has been a busy month, we’d like to welcome our newest customers to the SOLID family. Each bring something new and exciting to the industry – we are excited to working with them on their SOLID solutions.
During the course of June 2018, we gave each of our teams the chance to choose what they did for their Q2 Team Building Event. Each team got to choose from a ‘menu’ of fun and exciting activities, which catered to everyone and ranged from Sorbet treatments, Acrobranch and Go-Karting.
