This week saw an afternoon of storytelling, knowledge sharing and sushi eating as our talented consultants (nicknamed ‘Normans’) gathered from across our range of exciting projects. We run regular ‘Norman Days’ to bring our teams together, catch up on project activities, meet new Normans, gossip about the latest industry trends and ultimately put the World to right!
Hot topics of conversation from Norman’s day this week:
Our tech geniuses are finding Swagger tools incredible helpful when developing API’s. It allows rapid development, quick testing and collaboration between teams.
- Visualising Dataflows
A creative challenge one of our projects is conquering is creating an interactive interface to show backend dataflows visually. Clear data mapping can massively help future solutioning and development, we love to see some innovative, creative solutions from this team!
- Sketch to Figma Migration
We have numerous teams working for financial clients who are in the process or have recently completed a migration from using Sketch as a design tool to now using Figma. We love Figma and are very happy about these forward steps, however, the migration can be painful, and time-consuming, but, a problem shared is a problem halved and discussions on this topic has highlighted some great quick wins for our teams!
- How developing spotlight-like shortcuts are helping structured financial trades
Improving user experience is what we do, and what better way than removing steps, clicks or even the use of a mouse. We are building a great new feature which will allow financial trades to be placed by typing a few quick shortcuts into a command interface. Press ‘Enter’ and the trade is placed.
