A workspace with office graphics that spoke the same language as its genius computer scientist inhabitants.
We spent a lot of time in the office interacting with the employees to understand what they would like to see everyday. The strategy – create office graphics that are inspired by the code that these star employees create.
The design involved using core computer technology concepts to create intriguing visuals that computer geeks would relate to.
Hello world as office graphics?
A “Hello, World!” program generally is a computer program that outputs or displays the message “Hello, World!”. Such a program is very simple in most programming languages, and is often used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language. It is often the first program written by people learning to code. We built versions of this program that threw up results in different Indian languages.
“The tradition of using the phrase “Hello, World!” as a test message was influenced by an example program in the seminal 1978 book The C Programming Language.”
Computer history is full of spectacular and expensive bugs that cost companies and government entities money, time, reputation — and sometimes, people’s lives. It’s important to learn from our past and software testing is no different. We found this interesting article that compiled a list of costly errors. The outcome was to inspire the techies in the office to create quality code.
“While calculating the full financial damage of software bugs can be difficult, these four bugs were some of history’s most expensive and have a lot to teach.”
Great computer scientists
History of computer science
Code puns posters
A cool, geeky and techie office
The techie employees enjoyed the illustrations, the puns and the humorous take on different coding terminologies.
