During our house-warming party in Rome, we wanted you (and us) to have fun. But we also wanted to take the occasion to show you how we really live and feel the “Be Monk” philosophy in our working-life, day by day.
So, we decided to develop a little gaming app to show you what we did in the past few months – and how the office ended up looking how it does nowadays.
After months spent painting walls, building pieces of furniture and making our own arcade from zero (that was during our famous Creative Fridays), last week we officially celebrated Monk Software’s new venue in Rome. And we did it our way, of course.
It was great fun. No, seriously, it was. Do not think of some sterotypical, stiff company parties you might have experienced in the past – it’s just not Monk Software style.
Last time we wrote about this topic, it was our first attempt to make the “Monk Software beer”.
We brewed again later on – and we drunk that all, too. But this last batch has something special we wanted to share with you. READ MORE
With conversational interfaces, content has really become a huge thing. It’s not like it wasn’t before, of course. Nobody can deny it: since the boom of social networks and storytelling, this is content marketing’s golden age.
As previously announced here, Vapor framework has just rolled out it’s 2.0 version. Here at Monk Software, we are always looking for new technologies, and we gave Vapor a chance!
MONK has moved to a new venue. Along the ancient and green Appian way, in a peculiar villa, we have set-up our new offices, forestry and canteen.
Given the inspiring space and setting, we all set our creativity and handicraft skills to work and moulded every corner of the new MONK house. READ MORE
Your company is growing: orders increase, you are hiring more people, the warehouse is getting bigger. It’s getting harder and harder to keep track of everything through post-its strewn all over the office, or through the large spreadsheet you have so carefully built during the past few months.
If you ever find yourself in this situation, it means it’s time for you to start using an ERP software.
Quando Absolute Vodka, qualche anno fa, lanciò la prima campagna pubblicitaria su WhatsApp, fu subito storia. Sebbene la case history fosse significativa a livello creativo, quello che la rese davvero unica fu l’intuizione dei suoi creatori: in tempi non sospetti, avevano scovato il potenziale di questo tipo di canale per le iniziative di marketing.
Here at MONK Software we strongly believe in collaborative software. Open Source community is something great and so huge that we just want to say thanks to everyone out there who keeps doing great projects/libraries & blog articles. Thanks for sharing!
During our latest iOS project, we needed something that Apple’s APIs don’t provide. We were searching for a sort of UIImagePicker with an embedded photo library, but we were unable to find something that would have suited our needs. So we just thought it would have been great to create something ad hoc for us and obviously share it this new component with the community and, just as obviously, release it Open Source.
The Big Data and also Machine Learning conference in Rome has finished on last Saturday, so I thought I’d write some observations, thoughts and perhaps troll a bit (a troll a day keep the doctor away).
First a bit of a disclaimer – it’s my first non-purely developer conference, so some of the things that were odd to me, might be totally normal in this space. Moreover, maybe me not being a native Italian didn’t allow me to appreciate all the presentations and conversations to their full potential.
