Being at ACL means working in an awesome location surrounded by great restaurants, a rooftop patio for summer BBQs, and free beer club on Friday's in our 7th floor lounge. Take a break from solving problems with a game of pool, darts or foosball. If you are a gamer, we have XBox One, PS4 and Wii along with groups playing online games. Our social group organizes regular events and a few times a year we throw big parties to celebrate our accomplishments. We love to have fun and past events included a trip for the entire team to Whistler and renting out an old steel works mill for a huge launch party.
On Friday, we celebrated our 50th Dash Demo Day! What’s a dash, you ask? Well, it’s ACL’s version of the typical sprint you’d see in Scrum, but tailored especially to our Product and R&D teams. Friday marked the 50th demo day since we moved to dashes and a heck of a lot of awesome work achieved by our awesome team. Here’s to 50 more! #aclspirit #buildacl
