What’s on at Greenlord: June
June at Greenlord Studios
June is shaping up to be quite the exciting month for us here at Greenlord, with things moving and shaking both within the company and outside of it. Here is a run down of some of the things happening here this month.
TapSOS begins testing
We’ve been hard at work on the TapSOS app and it is now looking amazing. The functionality is now mostly in, so we are beginning the testing phase. This is going to consist of in house testing, followed by closed beta testing. The app will be put through it’s paces, and any last issues will be hammered out over the course of testing. If you want to follow development more closely, you can follow TapSOS on twitter at @Tap_SOS. They update regularly so they are definitely worth following!
As mentioned in the previous post, it is our birthday this month! To celebrate, the three of us are heading on holiday on the 14th after work, and will be back by the following Monday. For those of you in Middlesbrough, we are also planning on having a birthday bash at the Southfield on the afternoon of Friday 22nd. I will be creating a Facebook event for it, and everyone is welcome to join us! If you can’t make it, our social media will be active on the day so make sure you’re following us! @Greenlordstudio on twitter and click here to join our Facebook group.
Middlesbrough College expo
We have been invited to Middlesbrough College’s Creative and Digital Expo on the 14th. This expo is a chance for us to talk with students at the college, and for them to show off what they’ve been working on. Similar to ExpoTees, it will be a fantastic opportunity for us to see the work of potential future employees. As well, the college is using this as an opportunity to talk to people in the digital industry about how to maximise what students get out of their courses.
We are moving office again! This time is a much closer move though, as we are moving in to a larger office within Boho 5. Room 305 to be exact. We will be moving at some point in the next week or two once we have decided how to move everything, and we’ll be posting on social media once everything is set up.
The reason we have moved office is because Greenlord is growing! I would like to introduce Agne. Agne will be with us for the next 10 weeks, working as an in house QA tester for the TapSOS app. She’s already settling in nicely and we are excited to have her working with us. As well, we are getting closer to getting in another full time developer, so stay tuned for that update.
That’s it for this update, make sure to check back soon for more information on how our projects are going and what we are up to.
