Doist retreat 2017

Posted on May 2, 2017 in Εxperiences

With remote working becoming mainstream, company retreats have also become a great way for teams to get to know each other and have fun. After long planning and anticipation, Doist had its third company retreat, in a city that a few years ago used to be called home: Athens. Our team has grown significantly and Greece seemed to be the perfect backdrop for a group gathering. Thousands of years of history and culture alongside the continuous sunshine made Greece one of the best destinations for a team bonding activity.

At the end of the day, our life boils down to two choices: Dare to try or fear to fail.

It’s in my nature to seek out new experiences and always be eager to try and learn new things.

So here’s a small story about a Greek company that blew me away with the way they are still doing business these days.

It’s called NAT loopback!

I don’t consider myself an expert when it comes to networks, but my knowledge is above average. That said, I often find myself struggling with network problems that even the experts can’t answer. Apparently there are experts and… gurus! And personally the only guru I know is Google. So here’s my latest problem and what I’ve learned from it.

From Safari to Chrome and back in a few hours!

As a web designer I tend to keep installed many browsers so I can run compatibility tests for my creations. However, there is only one that I use on a daily basis for my regular web surf, bookmark keeping etc. And that is Safari! The reason behind my choice is mainly because of the way it integrates with OS X and Apple’s ecosystem in general. Every now and then though I like to keep an eye on the competition and see what am I missing. So today’s task was to try and switch my browsing needs and habits over to Chrome.
