The beginning of a new year often calls for us to pause and reflect on the events of the previous year. The unexpected always seems to outnumber the expected, trumping even the most thoughtful planning and goal setting for the year.
To take it a step further, you’d be hard pressed to find a more dynamic and unpredictable field than technology. For many of us, this is one of the most appealing sides of the industry. Perhaps the only thing we can say with any certainty is that 2014 will be exciting, full of awe and inspiration, and hopefully for a few of us, positively life changing.
Surprises and all, the Greythorn Technology Team is still confident we have found something special in our two primary areas of focus: Application Development and Big Data & Cloud Computing.
Application Development is advancing and fracturing at breakneck speed with new ideas and technologies introduced daily. The cost of sophisticated web applications has dropped dramatically with open source software and powerful tool sets and libraries no longer being available to the big boys. Concepts such as Responsive Design will allow us to bring our favorite applications with us via several mediums without missing a beat.
All eyes are on wearables as a contender for the next big thing, so get your Google Glasses ready! Tying it and everything else together is the Internet of Things (IoT), a concept that brings our physical world and the internet together.
Our Big Data & Cloud Computing team continues to lead the pack as a true front runner in the Big Data Talent Acquisition market. We have invested heavily becoming thought leaders in the space, demonstrated by our investment in education and attendance at major event like Strata, OSCON, and ApacheCon.
The intersection of our proven recruiting expertise and deep understanding of the Open Source market has resulted in exclusive recruiting partnerships with some of the world’s most notable technology companies such as NGINX, one of the most widely used web servers across all domains in the world.
Through it all, we never forget that any success we may enjoy is the direct result of our relationships with outstanding technologists. On behalf of the Greythorn Technology Team, we thank you for your partnership and your commitment to the industry we all love. We hope to work with you in the year to come and wish you much success in your endeavors.
