Why a weekly bake off?

Why a weekly bake off?

It didn't start as a thing. Neil just made a cake one day and brought it in. Everyone sat around eating cake, and I asked so who's up next? And it snowballed from there. So each week, someone gets a turn. They make a cake and on Tuesday or Wednesday morning we take 20...

Week 2 at Tapadoo

Week number 2 at Tapadoo, and I haven’t set the place on fire yet - I’d call that a success! I did accidentally lock the team out of a testing account for one of the projects we’re working on, but luckily we managed to reset it back pretty quickly! Other than that my...

First Week as a Tapadoo Intern

On my very first day, I must admit, I was nervous. Walking in the doors of the Tapadoo HQ, I thought that the transition from college to a real life working environment was going to be quite stressful. I was worried I wasn't as prepared as I should have been. But,...
