Morning Activities and Flexible Work Hours

The morning before Golden Week is very busy.

While disinfecting the soil of the plants that unfortunately died on the rooftop in black plastic, and painting the wood of the mobile coffee stand to be deployed in the summer with mahogany-colored wax, I have been preoccupied with preparations, such as producing a pattern for the electric dolls that will surprise everyone around the rainy season.

Until last year, I used to work with anyone who wanted to an hour or so before everyone else arrived at the office, but the flex system was introduced last week, making it difficult to do so in any way.

The people who are rustling around, and the people who are tapping away at their keyboards. Of course, both of them do something useful for the company, but they are very different from each other.

But then, I recalled that no one cared and proceeded to work on it as much as I wanted.

Enough to make a stuffed animal.

Hearing that you have to create an IT system from scratch can seem daunting.

There is a lot of jargon with CSS, HTML, programs, and servers.

There are so many things you can't figure out by browsing in a bookstore or searching the web.

I want to do that! but there are too many obstacles to overcome before you can make it happen.

The original idea was to be open source and free to create anything.

I thought such an atmosphere was not good, so I asked a team of young people, including interns, to create an application in a day, a week, or a month.

Ideally, you want to make a stuffed animal, cut the fabric, sew it, and put on the buttons.

If you have the "feelings you want to deliver," such as the hope that the child will be the one to talk about the day's events before bed, it doesn't matter if it's clumsy or rough.

It will be no fun if you are only mastering the techniques and your mind is somewhere else.

The apps created in this way are listed on the site as NanoTech and MicroTech.

Please see their struggles, which are hidden from view, when you have time.

Sweets Trigger

When you kick off a project and you feel that the members are not excited or the engine is not running, you dangle an order of sweets in front of them.

If we could release it on this day as planned, I wonder if we would receive the finest strawberry daifuku.

Some say that it is my job and I should manage the conditions by myself, but the real reason is that this way the development of the project will be more dramatic and interesting.

They are all honest about their appetites, so they bite with a twinkle in their eyes.

As the project progresses and reaches the midpoint of the project, one or two obstacles appear.

Progress is slow, specifications are lost, or coordination is not working.

Oh, it's not good. I think I'm already starting to get misty-eyed about the strawberries. I wonder if we'll ever make up for this delay."

if it were a ..., then certainly

No, it's not! There's nothing I can't do."

and stubbornly persist, the team begins to discuss the issue.

We don't have to say, "Let's do our best. Don't give up.

It is no longer certain whether it is for my own appetite or for everyone on the team.

It starts out as an unserious greed, but when they realize it, they overcome it on their own, like a drama with an ending, which is a strange thing.

A step that went the extra mile.

Once a year, we distribute goods to stores and offices in Ishigami.

It's no fun to stay in places where you know people, so you go into places you have never been in contact with before and talk to them.

I'm sorry, we're an IT company in Shakujii, and we're giving away original goods since we're both from the same area.

Of course, we don't want to disturb the people in the store.

Seeing this, the younger generation becomes a bit withdrawn.

He said, "You really talk to me, don't you? ・・・・・・

I reply, "Because it's free to talk to them."

I also do it because people don't talk to me when they don't want to, and in fact, setting up a business is similar," he adds.

Even if no one tells you to do it, you can start it yourself, get involved, and enjoy it.

If the extra step out of the way makes you feel indescribable, it's worth a try.
