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).
It all started with a Halloween party invitation last October.
As I haven’t been to a Halloween Party since I was in my early teenage years -many, many years ago!- I got overexcited one evening and purchased a few spooky items online to wear at the party: wig, face painting and some unnerving crazy lenses.

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”
CONGRATULATIONS and CELEBRATIONS to our Senior Apprentice Matt Gill who is celebrating his 21st birthday.

Matt brought in a tray of birthday cupcakes to share which were very appreciated.
It has to be said that the people in the UK office do like to BAKE! Continue reading “Baking Buddies at Payara UK”
