BEHIND THE SCENES PT. 3 - CHRIS, AN UNUSUAL LANGUAGE TALENT

Published by RISER at 30 gennaio 2018 in Articoli

Teaser

Saluton, ni ŝatus enkonduki iun al vi. Chris, unu el kodaj avantaĝoj ĉi tie ĉe RISER.

If you’re wondering what weird language that is: it’s Esperanto and means ‘hello, we would like to introduce someone to you. Chris, one of our coding-pros here at RISER’.

Why Esperanto? Because Chris has some rather unusual language-skills: besides having learned coding languages he has also studied Esperanto, the world’s most widely spoken constructed language.

At RISER Chris takes care of the backend, which means is responsible for the technology in the background of the app, such as the groups administration, making sure, that the translation of locations is working or the notifications that users get.

Before he came to us, Chris was working in the field of weather data analysis. And his experience of working with geodata and measuring physical values such as velocity or altitude differences are of course worth a mint for the RISER app.

He came to RISER via Sven, with whom he once worked together. In a conversation, the two noticed that Sven's work at RISER has many parallels to Chris' project. Then Chris came by and just felt so comfortable in the team that he stayed. And that makes us happy!

"What I really like about working at RISER is the enthusiasm of the team, the fact that we work with the latest technologies and that we all get the user feedback right away." Chris describes the benefits of his job.

Published by MOGI at 20 luglio 2018 in Articoli
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at 13 luglio 2018 in Articoli
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the North Coast 500 is a circular route circumnavigating mostly coastal roads around the northern tip of the Scottish Highlands.

A sunny day. The last few kilometers accompanied by our guides through Myanmar. The first limestone cliffs appear. From Kawkareik, a well-paved road meanders over the Tenasserim ridge.

In southern Nepal, there is only one single highway heading east. We approach the Indian border and dive into the crowd again. We drive along the road; the sunset in the back, left and right the tea fields. The density of people is diminishing and we are passing through a village where a white person has never been seen before, at least according to the owner of the restaurant where we take our lunch...
