Adjusting To Life in San Francisco

When I first found out I was moving to San Francisco, I was overwhelmed to say the least. I had lived my entire life in Massachusetts, with only a few brief visits outside its jagged borders.

The Coffee Tasting

Recently a few of the Yeti's made a trip to a local coffee-shop, Sextant, for an afternoon jolt of energy. It is a hip place that just opended up close to 10th and Folsom in the SOMA district. The difference between this trip to the coffee shop and every other trip was we were involved in helping the owners pick out their next batch of coffee beans to offer at their shop. It was a really interesting experience and it sparked an idea that myself and one of our newest team-members, Amy, decided to pursue this past week.

The Lawn Party

On a Saturday in late June we turfed the office and invited a bunch of friends over for a Lawn Party! Among our guests was the band The Tough Brothers. They played catchy and nostalgic tunes set against a perfect summer day.

Software Engineers focus on the whole thing and how it is going to get done.
