xento-bug-goal-achievement-party-2017

Some bugs can hop, slither, crawl or pop out from just about anywhere. Tracking down their source and putting an end to them is yet again a vital accomplishment for any development team. Having said this, being on the job to exterminate bugs requires a high level of sharp skill sets, an eye for detail combined with a perfectionist attitude while building any software tool. As the job involves identifying, scrutinizing, categorizing, reporting and eventually eliminating them. Furthermore, if they are not resolved at an early stage it could get far too complex for the development team to handle. A reason why our team of idealist are on a continuous pursuit to ensure bugs at Xento, always remain to be at its lowest tier each year. Yet again we made sure to make room to complete achieving one of our most significant company goal. continue

THE SELF DEFENCE WORKSHOP

Self-Defence-Training-for-woman-employees-at-Xento

A woman that can keep her personal safety, travels a longer distance. The journey to stay safe begins with learning and spreading awareness, prevention, and risk avoidance strategies. Xento recently organized a self-defence workshop to enlighten our women employees on basic self-defense techniques. The workshop was guided by Ms. Suvarna Ruikar (20 years experienced in karate).

While strength is good, balance is better; quickness is important, but timing is critical.

The two days self-defence training program worked amazingly. It prepared our employees of all the situations that could arise for which they would have no response. The workshop included some safety strategies and understanding how to fight back against a physical attack. It also gave participants the opportunity to perform the defense techniques with each other. We are happy to have received a stunning acknowledgment from all the participants in regard to this session.

 

Keep defending!
