One of the coolest parts of my job is being an enabler of others. Since the inception of the PSC Labs we have given the opportunity for developers/managers/designers to give what we call “Tech Reviews” and share some of the cool things they have worked on in recent months.
The tech review platform serves many purposes (beyond the free pizzas for those attending in person). The reviews enable:
- Cross sharing of ideas and experience across the company
- The opportunity for those unaccustomed to giving technical presentations to learn from others in a safe friendly environment
- Sharing some of the cool stuff we are playing in PSC Labs and sharing some thoughts and ideas on the future solutions we believe PSC will be able to provide our customers
In just over two years we have had nearly 30 tech reviews broadly crossing almost every aspect of the work we do at PSC Group. We have also had nearly 20 different speakers which is amazing. I was concerned when we started that it would always be the same few people giving the presentations but I was very happily proven wrong. The most any one consultant has done is three. Topics have varied from PGP Encryption, to Azure API Gateways, to formula management using PLM software, to the process of building a HIPAA compliant network on AWS for a Medical practice.
We use Skype for Business to share the presentation with those who are unable to attend in person. We record the presentation and post it internally to the Office365 Video portal so that anyone can use it for reference at a later date.
In the coming weeks I am going to start to blog about some of the Tech Review we have had in the past and the new ones as they are happening. I really want to share the ideas and concepts and demonstrate the breadth of interesting work we get to do at PSC.
