Every year, we organize end-of-year kickoff events where we talk business and enjoy each other’s company in the most relaxing settings. This year too, we rallied our team to bid farewell to the past year and set the tone for the upcoming one. But we didn’t want to do it in our office or through our screens virtually. So instead, we chose a winery!
As a team, we believe it’s crucial to come together to celebrate our wins, learn from our challenges, set new goals and embrace an ever-evolving vision. But we also believe that all those lengthy discussions and meetings about improving our work as a team should be done while trying out exquisite flavors and tasting new wine samples. So, during Kickoff’20, that’s exactly what we did! And with those relaxing walks around the winery and the gorgeous sunset view, we definitely made the most of it.
We are always fond of hosting events to support our community with our years’ worth of accumulated knowledge and experience. But we also love organizing team events that are just for us too! And at these exclusive events, like Kickoff’19, our focus heavily lies on bringing our remote team closer and making our bonds stronger as we delve deep into the topic of teamwork.
Together as a team, we love unearthing the exceptional talents in our community and giving them new opportunities to improve their capabilities further. So, with that idea in mind, we organized our first-ever Coding Challenge at our headquarters in İzmir. And we decided to send the winner all the way to Amsterdam to attend Europe’s biggest Java Script conference, the great JS Nation!
After an unfortunately lengthy pause due to the pandemic, we finally organized our long-awaited 8th Intern Bootcamp. It didn’t last long until we realized how much we missed meeting the young and talented people of our community and working with them side by side on various projects to discover the brilliant new minds to join the Atolye15 Team.The event took place at İzmir Originn with the participation of 50 aspiring developers, UI/UX designers, and project managers. As always, we started off by informing our future interns more about our team as well as the frontend, backend, design, and PM projects they would work on at the Bootcamp.
In 2018, we held our 4th conference on web and mobile technologies in Izmir with more than a thousand attendees. And we loved sharing this massive platform with 5 impressive speakers who embrace the giveback culture we all live by as a team. So, it was an honor for us to share what we know and have meaningful discussions on topics relating to PHP, NodeJS, Python, Ruby, React, Angular, Sketch, Figma, and many more in front of the enthusiasts of the community.
