Invercaixa vs Optimissa: the challenge

  On Tuesday, 16 December, the first Christmas Basketball Challenge Invercaixa vs Optimissa took place at the Centro Deportivo Municipal Gimnasio Moscardó, in the heart of the Salamanca district in Madrid. At two o’clock in the afternoon, the two perfectly uniformed teams performed their final stretches and practice lay-ups. They were eager to show that Pau Gasol’s or Ricky Rubio’s replacement should not be sought in the lower basketball leagues, but at the trading desks and software development centres. Everything was ready for the ultimate battle: parquet flooring, leather basketballs, official referees from the Spanish Basketball Federation… and twenty players …

Optimissa and the City

The thing I love best about my work with Optimissa? Travelling to new and exciting places. New York was top of my To-Do list and I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time just as Optimissa were in the process of expanding their client base in New York. So a few short weeks after discussions with the client, I found myself boarding a plane and leaving Madrid, which had been my home for the last year, bound for New York.

Bit I see, bit I want

Before object-oriented programming, developing was quite easy in terms of architecture and design. C or assembler did not play a big part except for a few optimisation algorithms for binary trees or bounded lists. With the arrival of object-oriented programming, this started to change. Design patterns…

Optimissa discovering new opportunities

As I write this having driven through the floodplains of England, having interacted with people in the ice cities of Toronto and New York and jealously to those in warmer climates such as Singapore and Dubai and indeed my Head Office City – Madrid– via Skype, phone, webex , email, – I ask myself – is climate change related to changes in communication? I decide not (though I am not sure) but do realise how far we have come – how easy it is to correspond. I remember doing the daily call with New York in the Eighties as a …

Running with Optimissa

After nearly one year in Spain and one year working for Optimissa I participated in the “Carrera de las Empresas”, which by now with my ‘expert’ grasp of the Spanish language (!) means “Race of the Companies”. I was initially concerned about the ‘race’ part of the event title but was assured that it was a fun event and not competitive. More on that later… So turning up at the race early on a cold Sunday morning was the first challenge. Everybody had arrived except Matt and Ruben. T-shirts and entry numbers were distributed but no sign of the missing …
