Payara Week 2020: Madeira, Portugal

Although every Payaran is currently working from home in response to Coronavirus, the whole team is still buzzing from Payara Week, held on the stunning sub-tropical island of Madeira. While this is our fourth annual Payara Week, it’s our first time hosting the event outside England. Flying everyone out to Funchal, Madeira gave the whole Payara crew the opportunity for a warm, sunny break from late winter (though it felt more like home to our equatorial crewmember).

Christmas Festivities at the Malvern Office

You might have noticed that Payarans will make lots of excuses for a good time, and the energy of Christmas and New Year is as good of a reason as any to let down our proverbial hair for a bit of fun. On 6 December, Payarans in our UK office celebrated the upcoming holidays with its annual Christmas party, when all Payarans in our UK office shut down their workstations at lunchtime to spend the rest of the day having some fun and a nice meal out on the town.

MicroProfile in Action on Payara Japan Tour 2019

A lot of things were completely new for me last week: my first time in Japan, first time on a JUG tour, first time within the Japan Java community. And, it was my first time giving a talk which was translated by an interpreter. I also did live coding during my talk for the first time. It was even the first time I went to a Buddhist temple and a Sumo tournament. And all of it was a blast! Continue reading “MicroProfile in Action on Payara Japan Tour 2019”

Payara Japan Tour 2019

Recently a few of us from the Payara team went on a grand adventure to tour some of the major cities of Japan. Our mission was to team up with our Japanese partner, Yusuke Yamamoto from Samuraism, and run a series of talks at Java User Groups in: Okayama, Nagoya, Osaka, Sapporo and Tokyo. In Tokyo we visited the GlassFish user group and also sponsored and presented at the bi-annual JJUG event, the largest Java conference in Japan. Continue reading “Payara Japan Tour 2019”

Career Fair at The Chase School

Recently I had an opportunity to take part in a career fair hosted by The Chase School. The school is adjacent to our office which has led to the development of a special relationship between the school and our company. We have taken students for work experience and apprenticeships over the past few years.  We are always looking for opportunities to find new talent locally, and the career fair provided exactly that. The fair was attended by students in year 11 – 13. This provided an excellent platform to promote our degree apprenticeship. Continue reading “Career Fair at The Chase School”
