By attending Front End Technologies Conference, we aimed to be informed about emerging front end technologies rather than the one we use in our projects; we planned to maintain the best practices for our infrastructure while questioning the technologies. Upon the event, we have updated our EMP Package Manager to Yarn, accordingly. We had a chance to meet with pioneers of the industry throughout the event; discussed the direction of industry with them and represented them Travelbuild’s cultural values, at the same time.
September 20th - 23rd 2018 | Amara Sealight Elite Hotel, Kuşadası / Turkiye
Travelbuild Bootcamp is an event which aims to get all stakeholders of Travelbuild (called Travelbuildians) together and help them become one. In our four day “vision” themed Bootcamp event which has taken place at Kusadasi Amara Sealight Elite Hotel between 20-23 September, we have intended to share our targets and plans transparently in the light of our beliefs and awareness. The inspiration for success comes from our organizational development, market relevance, innovations, products, technology and people who work in collaboration. Bootcamp aims to make people think that they are part of bigger organization and have their commitment in achieving the organizational targets. Most importantly, Bootcamp aims to make people love what they do in the organization rather than just having respect for it; people’s desire to move the organization one step forward will be our biggest achievement for this event.
Day 1: Thursday, September 20th
Upon our arrival at hotel, we had some time to prepare ourselves for busy schedule of presentations. At 14:00, presentations started after opening speech; first one is about origins and evolution of Travelbuild. We have our energy boosted with a video which is prepared as a surprise to our CEO, Baris Y. Aygun; it includes various professionals from travel industry who share their opinions about our project and CEO. We have had a better understanding of our progress.
Travelbuildians got together for dinner following presentations on Market, Product, Technology, HR, Commercial Product & Technological Innovation and Business Agility. Then, we put an end to the day with Agile-Scrum presentation and attended after-party. We had a chance to talk with each other and know each other better in the after-party which was held for relaxation after our trip and presentations.
Day 2: Friday, September 21st
Our second day started with a delightful breakfast. In our free time, we mostly had fun like kids in the water park and enjoyed the beautiful sea at Kusadasi. At 16:00, we were ready for Beach Volley Tournament. As three separated teams, we competed against each other until the final whistle. It was realized by everybody how well-organized we can be with our friends off the job while we work closely on daily basis. Together, we enjoyed ourselves at well in the water park upon our competitive tournament and got ourselves ready for delicious meals at suppertime.
Day 3: Saturday, September 22nd
Day 3 started a little bit earlier. After a light breakfast and a short trip, we were at a place of which had been thinking for some days… We had a scuba diving experience (6 meters deep) in four person groups upon having a brief introduction. By learning the hand signals, we understood how to communicate with instructors underwater when there is a problem.
Day 4: Sunday, September 23rd
In the last day of Bootcamp, we benefited from hotel facilities till our departure while enriching our Agile culture with discussions.
