Greetings from Elastic Path in Vancouver, Canada | Get Elastic
Indeed, ’tis the birth of yet another blog! This one offers news and discourse on the e-commerce industry in general, and chronicles scenes of life from (the rather comfy) offices of Elastic Path Software in Vancouver, BC, Canada – near the south end of the Cambie St bridge to you Vancouverites.
As a new employee with a fresh new set of eyes (today is day four for me), I aim to feature everything from astute observations to naive explorations plus various ephemera ‘from the trenches’ of a fast-growing, entrepreneurial endeavour.
In the spirit of disclosure, I am empowered to speak freely and, as such, have charged myself with the pleasant task of not only providing observations on the e-commerce software Elastic Path produces, but also to post audio recordings (call ‘em podcasts if you want), and video clips (v-casts if you prefer) to share information on EP’s shopping system and perhaps allow you to associate some faces with the company.
I share the 3rd floor of the Elastic Path HQ with an international crew of developers, coders, thinkers, planners, marketers and sellers – all working to build innovative software with open source components and custom-crafted code. So far, I’ve learned most of my co-workers names, read the employee manual, watched a Bruce Lee film, ate pizza, built a paper tower (actually it collapsed), and learned to use the coffee machine (tricky). What else is there?! We’re on the road to find out.
Thanks for coming along for the ride! Drop us a note or add a comment if you seek knowledge.
