DS2 is passionate about furthering the education and skills of our team. Last week, nearly the entire development team at DS2 attended a 2-day group training focusing on React skills. Lead by web development guru, Brad Westfall of React Training, who has been teaching web development for over a decade, this two-day workshop covered React proficiency through guided lectures and project-based learning.
Every year, DS2 participates in a Fall beach cleanup to remove litter from our beautiful sugar-sand beaches and say goodbye to Summer! This year, we packed up our trash bags, trash grabbers, buckets, & gloves and headed to the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. DS2 volunteers soaked up some sun while removing an entire trashcan’s worth of rubbish from the shoreline.
DS2 recently completed migration to version 2.0 of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and was appraised at CMMI Level 3.0 in a recent benchmark appraisal. Version 2.0 focused its attention to performance practices and a focus on process improvement through repeatability and practice. We are passionate about creating quality products and services while improving customer satisfaction utilizing agile principles.
