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
Automation (and software in general) is becoming more and more essential to every-day operations. Attending the annual UCT Careers Festival not only gives us a chance to meet the next generation, but to chat to them and introduce them to the Software Development industry as a whole.
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.
Once again, SOLIDitech is very excited to be hosting a stand at the UCT Careers Festival. There will be freebies, multiple competitions and real life Software Engineers that you can come ask questions and chat to - don’t be shy, come say hi!
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.
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.
Presenting your best self in an interview is based on a certain set of skills that you can easily learn. SOLIDitech is proud to have been involved in the UCT Mock Interview Day which was a great opportunity to help students receive valuable feedback and interview experience.
SOLIDitech’s first Team Events Day of 2018 was a huge success! While SOLID Johannesburg competed with guns in a Black Ops Laser Tag Tournament, SOLID Cape Town competed with braai tongs and charcoal in SOLIDitech’s 2018 Braai Master Challenge.
On 08 December 2017, SOLID staff and their partners spent the afternoon having fun in the sun, eating delicious food and riding the Cobra and the Congo Queen. After a quick change, everyone arrived at the Officer’s Club to celebrate another successful year. There was music, magic and super heroes.
