Domo Arigato

In case you did not know I, Jared, work at a company named DOMO. This is a great place to work. Devin is frequently jealous of all the perks: Free Cokes, Lunch is provided every day, Fridays there are donuts. Also there was a previous post about the tailgate party. Devin does not believe we actually work.

Every few weeks we have hack night at work. The last one was raspberry pi night. Just so you know a raspberry pi is a $35 computer that is about the size of a credit card. The challenge was to see what you could do with a raspberry pi. The team I was on created a door from Monsters Inc.
This was fun. I will describe all the features of the door. 
1. As you approach the door a motion sensor is triggered and a video clip from the movie plays stating the "Eastern seaboard is coming on line"
2. On the desk there are 2 NFC cards you can scan by putting them by the brown box.
3. If you pick the wrong one a clip is played of Roz saying "Don't let it happen again"
4. If you pick the correct one  the light on the door comes on and an electric latch triggers so you can go through the door. A few seconds later you will hear a child scream.
5. When you scan the card we also take your picture and post it to a website of Top Scarers.

There where lots of fun projects: custom video games, Warnings for getting to close,  and A Zoltar machine. It was lots of fun and at the end of the day the team I was on won a "Major Award"
The other day I went out to lunch with my wife and kids. Ayden has a few favorite animals his most favorite is Mickey Mouse followed by Roosters he loves to say "Cock a Doodle Doo". I just had to take him inside for a photo with the DOMO Rooster.
He was so excited to see the rooster. And Devin still wonders how we get any work done when so much fun is around.
