Tech round table

Technology doesn't stand still and neither do we. On a regular basis we get our whole tech team together (developers, testers, agile project managers) and review all the tech we've used across all our projects to derive what's hot and what's not in our world of tech.

Far from an exhaustive list, you can find the results of our most recent Tech Round Table with our favourites highlighted below.
