The first prize was given to the team "VIN" (topics: "Solvd Social Stream (S3)", "Solvd Leaders AMA", "Newcomer welcome pack"). Their ideas happened to be the most essential for our company. Those were mainly connected with sharing current information regarding the news of the company, innovations, problems. It's apparent that all employees need to be up to speed. It increases openness, transparency and fosters company culture.
The team "2-gether" won the second prize with the topic "Telegram support for Carina/Zafira". Carina, Java-based framework that unites all testing layers, and Reporting Tool Zafira are products created in our Open-Source Division Qaprosoft
. Every day some employee is responsible for Carina framework support. It takes a lot of time to answer all the questions. So, our speakers offered to create a Telegram bot which could provide any information needed. Telegram provides an API for working with bots and processing information. There are also several convenient libraries for Python which help you implement almost any logic.
Finally, our third winners were "DK-Team" (topic: "Be healthy working in Solvd"). The state of our health is an important issue as well. In order to avoid the sitting disease, girls offered to organize a place for doing some sport.
Besides prizes, the main and perhaps the most significant point is that the best ideas will be brought to life in our company. Soon, we could observe all these ideas implemented. Solvd Innovations Pitch provides a great opportunity to be heard and to get feedback. And now we are waiting to gather again and discuss some new issues.
