Unique Activities or Events

One important way our Technology, Engineering, Design (TED) teams are #ExcellentToEachOther is by being curious and learning from each other. There are so many ways to get involved in TED to learn more about colleagues, strengthen your skills, and take advantage of opportunities for professional development. Below are a few unique activities that our development teams run on a timely basis.

Dragon Slayer
  • Dragon Slayer occurs twice a year and allows developers to catch up on issues that need to be fixed (e.g. bug fixes). Dragon Slayer helps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our technology assets and allows individuals to become experts in the code that you own or learn more about code lines that you don’t normally work with.

  • Inspiration also occurs twice a year and gives developers an opportunity to become creative. Developers are given the freedom to test ideas, post their ideas on internal portal, and work with other developers from any team. After the two weeks, some ideas are run by the Product Management and Development teams and may get’s implemented!

  • InFUSION started in 2015 and is our annual internal conference in TED. It is three jam-packed days that brings together all members of TED for peer-to-peer learning, team building, collaboration, reflecting and celebrating our accomplishments! It has grown to include Product Management and a few others who support the TED group.

    The goal of the conference is to share experiences from our talented team members across all departments in our organization through face-to-face conversations and networking.

    The conference includes external keynote speakers and hands-on workshops, breakout sessions across several streams – technical, business, management, etc.

  • New Software Developers and Testers participate in structured technical training and ‘getting started’ onboarding. This is typically a 5-day program, with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous leaning.

  • During these meetings, our team takes time to learn from each other, either in small chunks as “Five Minutes Flares” or in larger presentations. We invite guests both internal and external to join. Most recently, our team learned about more effective and faster decision making from an expert in organizational behavior, heard the career story of our VP of Solutions Engineering, and learned about some automation changes coming to one of our documentation processes.
