With all the stay at home orders in place across the country, and world, parents are struggling to keep their children both entertained and educated. Let look at a few ways to use games to teach some new skills.
Have you ever wondered what it's like to work for Puget Systems? As one of Puget's newest Technology Consultants, and with barely five months under my belt, I may not have as nuanced an insight into the company's inner workings than some of my peers.
Puget Systems is full of skilled computer builders. But we also have employees with many other talents. One person I'd like to talk about today is someone with a unique talent who has found a way to share it with a few of our customers.
Working with a Puget systems Technology Consultant can save a lot of time, and take a lot of headaches and worry out of the process of selecting a system.
The lock-downs have changed a lot of things for all of us. For someone who already works from home, it doesn't seem a whole lot different. For now, I'm using my spare time to better train our foster animals. We regularly have a foster or two in our home and the Coronavirus won't change that!
Most of my day is spent talking to customers on the phone, over email, and sometimes in person at events or personal visits. I collect feedback about our products and services and take it back to the management at Puget Systems so that we can learn what's working and what we need to improve.
I might have heard about Animal Crossing in passing, never paying it much heed. A game that has no real ending. You can do whatever you want. Given my limited amount of time, I wanted a beginning, some levels to get through, and an end boss to fight.
If you are not familiar with hardware, it can be scary reaching out to a company regarding a new computer. To help put your mind at ease, this post discusses what to expect when reaching out to Puget Systems.
Working from home has presented some unique challenges and benefits that I wasn't expecting. I've only been doing it for the past six weeks or so but I've learned a lot. It's taken a shift in mindset and the creation of a whole new set of habits.
Like most of my colleagues, working from home isn’t foreign to me. I have been working remotely for 1-2 days out of the week for the past ~4 years. I never really thought much of it aside from it being more of a self-paced workday.
I begin a decent into automation tools to build a installer for the benchmark tool.
I wasn’t there, but I’m pretty certain when the principals of my kids’ school announced that school would be closed for a while, they cheered. Now a month into the school closures, they don’t appear to be too happy.
With Washington state under the new "Stay Home, Stay Safe" proclamation, I have now been working out of my home office for about 4 weeks. And just the other day, this order was extended another 30 days. So we're in this for the long haul. In the spirit of helping those who are either working from home for the first time, or simply not used to doing so full time, I thought I would share my setup, how I've adjusted, and what I've learned along the way.
I am the Scientific Computing adviser here at Puget Systems. Many of us are sharing our work-from-home stories for coping with the changes to our normal life and work routines during the COVID-19 quarantine. I have already been working from home for a few years and wanted to share my setup and offer some tips that I hope will encourage you if you are suddenly finding yourself bewildered by disruption to your work-life.
