Introducing Code Fridays
At our company get together earlier this month we decided that each Friday we would take time out of client work to have some fun! Among other things, we discussed how we could make Mixd not just a great place to work, but also a great place to learn and experiment with the latest developments in web design. So this Friday we have decided to try something new…
Mixd Code Fridays!
Every Friday afternoon we are giving all members of the Mixd team a half day of free time to think, explore, mock up, prototype, whatever. People can go solo or put together a team – it’s entirely up to them. We’re around for emergencies, and we will still do customer service/support on Fridays as normal, but other than that work is not required on Friday afternoons.
The idea is that we have time to develop and experiment with new web technologies and an opportunity to unwind and create without the external pressures of other ongoing projects or expectations. We’ll report back if we learn anything – good or bad – about what we’re doing and how it’s working.
I’m really excited to see what people come up with (and share what I’ve come up with, too). Hopefully our customers will see the results of some of these ideas and experiements over the coming months.
