Dave Balser, JD Edwards Delivery Director:

Simple financial advice that fits on an index card.



Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:

Neko Atsume

Don’t let the webpage fool you – although the site is in Japanese, the Android and iOS apps are in English! Neko Atsume (Cat Collector) is a fun game that my wife and I have recently become addicted to. You purchase food and toys and put them in your house and yard, and then you check back into the app often to take photos of the cats! After they visit they’ll leave you some presents you can spend on more toys and food. Get them to like you and they’ll give you mementos to collect!


John Kormanec, Solutions Architect:

Falcon 9 Sticks Vertical Landing

Watch the SpaceX team launch their Falcon 9 rocket, deliver a satellite payload, and then recover the rocket’s entire first stage via a pinpoint vertical landing!


Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Director:

Celebrate Alan Rickman (and help children) by watching this strawberry-chomping tortoise

In honor of everyone's favorite Snape, the more views the video receives, the more money is donate to Save the Children and Refuge Council. 


Michelle Kowalski, Designer:

Hannah Gierosky, Marketing Specialist:
I'm going to visit my sister in Thailand this spring, and with all of the hopping around we'll be doing I'm trying to pack as lightly as possible (a challenge as I am a notorious over packer). Enter: this backpack. Verstaile and roomy enough that if I pack smart, I should be able to fit everything I need for a two week trip!
